Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Carlos Mata, implements injectable Juvéderm to improve sullen areas on the face where additional contour and volume is desired. This popular derma filler is manufactured from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. Hyaluronic acid injections work to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that contribute to healthy skin elasticity. While there are many hyaluronic acid-based fillers on the market today, Juvéderm has been proven to provide safe, effective results for up to a year. Dr. Mata, a.k.a. Dr. Scottsdale, offers his patients at our office, Juvéderm Ultra, which is used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles around the lips, and Juvéderm Ultra Plus, which works great for deep wrinkles.
"I had two procedures done earlier this year by Dr. Mata. The tummy tuck was in January 2016 and following after in February, thigh lift. After working out so many years, it was the excess skin and fat I had removed. For all my future procedures and for friends and family, I definitely recommend Dr. Mata. Growing up with physicians in my family ( my mother was a Pediatrician), he has a wonderful disposition very reminiscent of the days when doctors cared and took all the time you needed to address concerns. Dr. Mata also made sure I was mentally prepared for the procedures and was 100% transparent with what I can expect. It's not a form of weight loss, but body sculpting. He has a very nurturing way about him as well. My healing experience has been the most positive under his care and the care of the staff. You are given written directions and the nurses will answer any questions you have. After the procedures, of course, new clothes feel great in smaller sizes, but it's not seeing the unwanted skin and fat, always getting larger sizes to disguise my trouble spots that brings me happiness. I have no regrets. I highly recommend Dr. Mata and I'm so grateful. My arms are next! :-)"- L.N. / Google / Jul 06, 2016
"Five Stars - I have been a patient of Dr. Carlos Mata for several years. He performed a lower blepharoplasty in 2016 and my results were miraculous! My confidence was renewed and I am beyond ecstatic with my results. I returned to have filler used to fill a divet on the tip of my nose and fully trust Dr. mata and his vision of what I wanted. Again I was so happy with my results and will ONLY come to Natural Results to see Dr. Mata for any future concerns. He is truly gifted in this field, is caring and compassionate. Thank you Dr. Mata!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Feb 05, 2019

What to Expect
Juvéderm is a gel substance that is administered via a fine needle directly into the skin. There is no sedation needed, although a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. The injection sites will be sterilized and marked with ink. Once the filler is injected, results are immediately noticeable. The practitioner may massage the treated area so the filler spreads evenly. Other than temporary redness, the treatment has no after effect that will prevent a patient from going back to normal routine. Patients should avoid strenuous exercise for approximately 24 hours. After a Juvéderm injection, the face will look refreshed, softer and smoother.
This procedure is almost pain-free. This really is determined on a patient’s overall pain tolerance. The product is administered with a fine injection needle and a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. After the treatment, tingling sensations may occur, and there could be some swelling and bruising. These after effects are temporary and usually subside within a few hours.
Dermal fillers have an outstanding track record for successfully reducing signs of aging with less risk than surgical cosmetic treatments. Other nonsurgical options include wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX® and Dysport®. Severe cosmetic issues such as loose and sagging skin may be better resolved by a surgical facelift. The approach taken will be based on the patient’s cosmetic condition and aesthetic goals.
Back to 20?
It is important to set realistic expectations when undergoing any cosmetic enhancement procedure. While the treatment does take years off the face, it may only do so much for patients who have severe wrinkles and skin irregularities. Juvéderm will definitely help decrease fine wrinkles and creases, and the skin will appear smoother and softer.
