Patients in the Brooklyn, NY area who are interested in cosmetic enhancements of the facial area may believe plastic surgery is their only solution. With continued advances in cosmetic dermatology, patients can achieve amazing results with injectables such as a filler known as Juvéderm. Juvéderm is one of many cosmetic fillers and injectables available at Khrom Dermatology and Aesthetics for patient consideration.
Learn more about Juvéderm
Juvéderm is a gel injectable used to treat fine lines and wrinkles on the face. It is formulated with an ingredient known as hyaluronic acid, or HA, that is naturally present in the human body. This element attracts water, bringing volume where it is injected. This is what makes it the perfect element of an injectable used for fine lines and wrinkles. Juvéderm is most commonly used for the treatment of:
- Facial wrinkles
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Thin lips
- Deep acne scars (ice pick scars)
- Poor chin or nose contours
In addition, some patients use Juvéderm to rejuvenate their hands, where aging is always obvious.
Who is a candidate for Juvéderm?
At Khrom Dermatology and Aesthetics, we encourage patients who are interested in addressing fine lines and wrinkles to schedule an appointment for a consultation visit with Drs. Tatiana Khrom and Natallia Fiadorchanka. Our team can evaluate the skin and determine if Juvéderm is the best choice. Juvéderm injections are a great all-around solution for a variety of wrinkles, folds, and lines that can contribute to an aged appearance. The best candidates are adult patients who have imperfections of the skin that can be addressed with volume improvement using hyaluronic acid gels.

What to expect during a Juvéderm appointment
Once patients have decided to have their face treated with cosmetic injectables such as Juvéderm, they are encouraged to ask questions about what they can expect during their treatment appointment. Juvéderm is done quickly and easily right in our office while patients relax in the treatment chair. Our doctors will assess the areas that need to be improved, and provide steady, gentle injections in these areas. Patients will only be in the chair for a few minutes as our doctors work to improve the texture of the skin. Patients then leave the practice with aftercare instructions and are often able to return to their busy schedule with no interruption. One of the great things about Juvéderm injections is that patients do not need to schedule social downtime for recovery, versus traditional plastic surgeries which require downtime.
How long does Juvéderm last?
Many patients love Juvéderm because the results are long-lasting. Most areas treated will maintain the results for approximately six months or longer after the first injection. Many of our patients return to the practice for reinjection of Juvéderm to maintain these results even longer. While we cannot completely stop or reverse the aging process, we can slow it down with periodic injections done in our office.
Can Juvéderm be used in conjunction with other treatments?
Our patients are often excited to learn that they can use Juvéderm alongside other injectables, including collagen stimulators and neuromodulators (such as Botox) for a complete “liquid facelift.” Combining these treatments helps in targeting specific areas with the injectable best suited for it. The entire process can be done right in the treatment chair and patients will love the ability to completely rejuvenate their facial appearance with injectables!
What sets Juvéderm apart from other hyaluronic acid fillers?
Each hyaluronic acid filler has its benefits. Some last longer than others, some are better suited for deep wrinkles or superficial wrinkles, and each has its own feel and viscosity. When patients have their consultation appointment with our doctors, they can select the injectables appropriate for the areas being treated.
