Juvederm Treatment in Richmond – Dr. Gordon Lewis, MD
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that comes in three different formulas to treat mild, moderate and severe facial aging irregularities. Juvederm is used to restore facial volume, thereby filling in facial wrinkles and lines. Dr. Lewis administers Juvederm at his Richmond plastic surgery practice for both men and women who wish to fill in unsightly wrinkles and rejuvenate their overall facial appearance.
Juvederm is comprised of a naturally occurring substance and therefore does not require allergy testing prior to treatment. However, in order to ensure each patient’s safety, Dr. Lewis carefully screens every patient prior to administering Juvederm.
For Richmond Juvederm candidates, this dermal filler is used to:
- Alleviate nasolabial folds (lines that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth)
- Reduce smile lines (parenthesis around the nose and the mouth)
- Eliminate Marionette lines (vertical wrinkles at the corner of the mouth)
- Diminish vertical lip lines
Please contact Dr. Lewis to find out if you qualify to receive Juvederm treatment.

Just like any other injectable treatment, Juvederm is injected under the skin at specific treatment areas previously identified and marked by Dr. Lewis. To reduce any possible discomfort, Dr. Lewis may use topical or injectable local anesthesia. Treatment time is generally about 30 minutes, after which time patients are free to leave.
After Juvederm Treatment
Juvederm does not require a recovery. Some Juvederm Richmond patients may experience mild bruising and swelling, which gets better over time. A follow-up appointment with Dr. Lewis will ensure a safe and smooth healing process. In addition, post-treatment guidelines will be provided for each patient.
