If you are desiring a more youthful facial appearance but aren’t quite ready for a facelift, Juvederm is an excellent way to delay a surgical option. Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler, which is a naturally occurring substance in the human body found in cartilage, joint fluids, and skin tissue. In fact, hyaluronic acid is found in almost every single living thing. Once Juvederm is injected into strategic points in your face, it acts as a cushion to support your facial structure and replace any lost volume. It also brings water to the surface of your skin for a dewy, supple complexion.
Juvederm is not intended for a long-lasting solution and does not stop the aging process. Depending on your unique circumstance, you may need up to three treatments for the full effect. You can experience results for three to five months, and often, most people choose to renew the procedure up to three times a year. After the procedure, you’ll be able to return to normal life right away with no recovery time. You may also wear makeup right away, taking care to not put pressure on the injected site. Dr. Atchison will provide all the details necessary to determine if this procedure is right for you.
If you have had success in weight loss but are having a difficult time eliminating a double chin, Kybella can help you achieve your profile goals. Kybella is the first and only FDA approved procedure for chemically destroying fat cells specific to the removal of a double chin. During the procedure, a precise amount of medication is injected beneath the chin for a nonsurgical, minimally invasive fat reduction. Depending on your unique circumstance, you may have anywhere from two to six treatments which will be placed four to six weeks apart.
Following the procedure, you will be able to return to your normal life right away, with no recovery time necessary. You may, however, experience some swelling, bruising, pain, redness, or areas of hardness that soften with time. Final results will be apparent after your swelling completely subsides, which can take up to eight weeks. However, with weight maintenance, you should experience long-lasting change. Dr. Atchison will provide all the details necessary to determine if this procedure is right for you.

Dr. Atchison will provide all the details necessary to determine if this procedure is right for you.
