What is Juvéderm?
By offering our new and current patients at Aldona J. Spiegel, M.D. cosmetic injectable, like Juvéderm, we can fill in lost facial volume or thin lips. Depending on your selected formula and what you are trying to achieve with this product, you can ease the look of wrinkles and lines to creating a fuller lip line. Juvéderm Vollure and XC are injected to treat mild to moderate wrinkles and lines on your face. You may have concentrated areas of wrinkles in or around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds) that could benefit from these formulas of Juvéderm. Do you desire added volume in your lower lip, upper lip, or both? Juvéderm Volbella and Ultra XC can augment these areas (without surgery) for up to a year. Juvéderm Voluma can enhance the contour of the cheeks to reverse age-related volume loss in the mid-face.
These injections can be performed with only one formula, a combination of formulas, and/or with other noninvasive treatments to achieve your aesthetic goals. Each Juvéderm dermal filler is made with synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA) to boost the body's natural levels of HA and collagen for supple, healthy skin. Talk to one of the physician assistants with Dr. Spiegel about rejuvenating your appearance without the recovery time and expense of plastic surgery using the Juvéderm family of dermal fillers.

"I cannot recommend Dr Spiegel and her team more highly. I attended her clinic when having trouble with uncomfortable implants after a previous mastectomy. Dr Spiegel suggested DIEP procedure and I was really not sure. Over the coming months both she and her team explained the procedure, the benefits and results and implications. I decided to go ahead and I could not be more happy with the results. I look like I would have done pre mastectomy. I have been amazed by the continued care and concern of the whole team from the finance folk to the clinic nurses and doctors and their absolute pleasure in seeing my delight. A fantastic experience and I can't thank them enough."- C.A. / Google / Aug 01, 2019
"Dr. Spiegel and her wonderful staff got me through the most difficult experience of my life. Going through mastectomy and DIEP flap reconstruction is traumatic. I chose her over other Houston area surgeons and felt that I could trust her. Everyone in her office supported me each step of the way. First, and foremost, this is a major surgery and you rely on medical excellence to avoid important risks. She is a perfectionist regarding medical safety. Next, her artistry is outstanding. She got the best result that could be possible. Finally, if you have radiation, it is a long journey of several years to get from the beginning to end of the process, involving a year of a temporary expander before the final reconstruction. It is important to have a team that you can have that trusting supportive relationship over time. I feel very lucky and grateful that I was in the hands of this wonderful group of highly skilled women."- L.S. / Google / Jul 08, 2019
"Dr. Spiegel is my guardian angel and I owe her and her entire team and staff a debt of gratitude that I will ever be able to repay! I am one year out from my original Diep flap surgery with her and I feel great- like myself again! After undergoing a prophylactic mastectomy ( due to testing positive for the BRCA 2 gene and strong family cancer) and getting breast implants with another doctor, Dr. Spiegel saved my life by removing the implants and performing Deip surgery. The implants cased me so much pain and diminished my quality of life but now I have it back. I have no more pain and my breasts are soft again and created from my very own tissue. Thank you Dr. Spiegel!"- J.A. / Google / Jul 08, 2019
"Dr. Spiegel was highly recommended by my oncologist. It had become necessary that I look into reconstruction and a lymph node transplant. Dr. Spiegel does amazing work. She loves what she does and it shows in the results that she achieves. I am very happy that I chose her for this journey! Her support staff are wonderful to work with as well!"- D.M. / Google / Jul 08, 2019
"Dr. Spiegel is simply fantastic. I am so grateful to her and her whole staff (Alexis/Nicole/Lisa/Aidee/Angie) for the wonderful care and support given to me from my very first visit to their office. Dr. Spiegel is so thorough that during the course of my visits, she insisted that I consult a GI doctor for my distended stomach. Turns out that I had an H Pylori infection for which I had to be treated. No other doctors had ever looked past their specialties to treat the whole individual, and I am 59 years old. Subsequently, Dr. Spiegel pushed for an endoscopy, and it was discovered that I had an ulcer for which I was treated. From cardio work up, lab tests to chest xrays, Dr. Spiegel ensured that I was in top shape for surgery and made sure that I understood all aspects of the procedure and treatment.During my stay at the hospital, Dr. Spiegel, Alexis, Nicole, Dr. Arroyo, and Dr. Vo infused me with so much strength, support and kindness that I have no words to express my gratitude and appreciation. It's been one month since my surgery and I'm feeling good, healing very well and going back to work next week. Awesome doctor and wonderful staff."- R.L. / Google / Jun 08, 2019
Getting Your Injections
Juvéderm injections take about 15 – 30 minutes of your time based on which areas are being addressed. Your face will be cleaned, and then the injection spots will be selected and marked. To minimize discomfort, Juvéderm formulas contain an anesthetic (lidocaine). Following your treatment, you may go back to your normal routine, but strenuous activity, such as exercise, should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You need to be cautious to not touch your face after your injections to avoid moving the filler into unwanted areas.
Your Results with JUVÉDERM
You will see a visible enhancement immediately after your Juvéderm injection, but you could also develop mild swelling or bruising in the treated areas for about 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm treatments usually last as long as a year, and some patients find that their improvements last longer after 2 – 3 years of consistent injections. Talk to Dr. Spiegel about when to schedule a touch-up or full treatment session at Aldona J. Spiegel, M.D. to maintain your results.
