JUVÉDERM® in Orlando
As you age, your skin loses elasticity allowing wrinkles and fine lines to form around your nose, lips, mouth, chin, cheeks and eyebrows. At our Orlando clinics, we can use an injectable gel (JUVÉDERM®) to restore a natural look to targeted areas of your face. This popular cosmetic treatment works well to lessen the impact of laugh lines, parentheses and marionette lines.
What is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is an injectable hyaluronic acid that adds volume and helps to increase skin hydration. Since hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body, it is ideal for use as a dermal filler. The smooth consistent gel is injected into targeted areas to reverse the signs of aging by erasing (or minimizing) unwanted lines and wrinkles.
Why choose JUVÉDERM®?
Aging, environmental pollutants and exposure to the sun's damaging rays can causes your skin cells to gradually lose hyaluronic acid. As this substance dissipates, the dermis becomes dehydrated and the elastin and collagen fibers lose their integrity. In time, areas of your face can develop deep wrinkles as the skin becomes drier and thinner. JUVÉDERM® is a biodegradable gel that replaces the hyaluronic acid that has been lost over time. As it integrates between the collagen and elastin, it not only restores volume but also improves the hydration of facial skin.
How is this Procedure Conducted?
After using a numbing cream to minimize any discomfort, JUVÉDERM® is injected directly into the facial skin in small amounts using an ultrafine needle. The length of a treatment session varies based on how many areas are targeted for correction and how many applications are required to achieve the desired results. Generally speaking, a JUVÉDERM® treatment takes about 30 minutes and can be easily scheduled for your lunch hour.
A JUVÉDERM® procedure is simple and convenient, and results are practically instantaneous. Since no recovery time is required, you will be able to return to your daily activities immediately. Some clients may experience tenderness, temporary redness, or minimal swelling at the injection areas which typically disappears within 24 hours. A distinct advantage of choosing JUVÉDERM® is its smooth, pliant texture that contributes to its soft, natural-looking results.
How often should I do JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® has been shown to be a long-lasting wrinkle correction option. In fact, JUVÉDERM® is the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved by the Federal Drug Administration to last up to one year from your initial treatment. Based on your skin type and unique problems with facial aging, maintenance treatments may be needed to ensure optimal results over time.

My husband and I both had a wonderful experience at Dr. Michael Steppie's office in Kissimmee. We both had to have cell's removed and patient care was of the upmost. The staff was always asking how I felt and if I felt any pain. My whole experience was wonderful. When I was finished with surgery, they started on my husband. He also said his whole experience was very professional and we both recommend Dr. Steppie's office for our friends.
