What to expect in your appointment
At Northshore Dermatology, Dr. Eric N. Tabor or our wonderful Nurse Practitioner, Melanie Nuss, gently administers JUVÉDERM® and makes sure their patients are as comfortable as possible. Although JUVÉDERM® has lidocaine within the gel, you will still be offered topical lidocaine, or ice, to numb the area to be treated. This allows the patient to have minimal to no discomfort during the procedure.
It is important to note that everyone’s skin ages differently, which means different amounts and variations of the JUVÉDERM® products may be used to rejuvenate your skin and the problem areas you want to address. Some swelling and bruising is expected, so it is important to remain hydrated and follow after care instructions. The cosmetic consultants at Northshore Dermatology work closely with Dr. Eric N. Tabor, to devise a plan that suits your needs, and your budget, best.
