Posted by Dr. Vikram Khanna
Fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face can contribute to an aging appearance. However, patients in the Algonquin, IL and Woodstock, IL areas who are interested in addressing these imperfections are welcome to book an appointment with Dr. Vikram Khanna of Dermatology Specialists of Illinois. His practice offers a variety of solutions for aging skin, including anti-aging injections with Juvéderm.
What is Juvéderm?
Dermatologists in the field of anti-aging find Juvéderm injections to be a wonderful solution for a variety of skin concerns. Juvéderm is hyaluronic acid gel that is administered directly into the wrinkles and folds of concern to provide immediate improvement that can last many months before reinjection is needed to maintain the results. This cosmetic injectable is approved by the FDA for safety and efficiency in improving the appearance of wrinkles and folds. Dr. Vikram Khanna is a professional who advocates for patients and helps them learn about non-surgical solutions available for aging skin.

Juvéderm is one of the most popular anti-aging injectables for many reasons. Patients find that they can achieve results without having to undergo plastic surgery. Plastic surgery is often reserved for patients with severe skin laxity that can only be addressed with physical methods. When patients hear of plastic surgery, they often think of long recovery times, scarring, high costs, and risks of infection. With Juvéderm, none of these problems are a concern. The side effects of Juvéderm are mild, if they occur at all, and include itching, redness, and tenderness at the injection site for a few days. Many patients find Juvéderm injections to be simple, fast, and effective at addressing their concerns.

Dr. Vikram Khanna provides Juvéderm injections for adult patients who are seeking an affordable and non-invasive solution for their aging skin. During initial consultation appointments and evaluations, our professionals will determine if patients can benefit from treatments such as Juvéderm.

These can often be used in conjunction with Juvéderm, so patients can obtain a “liquid facelift.”

When patients have decided to move forward with Juvéderm injections, they are able to have their injections done right in the office under the care of our experienced team.

How much does Juvéderm cost?
The cost of Juvéderm will vary from patient to patient, because it is charged per vial used.
