In recent years, injectable fillers have become the cornerstone of non surgical facial rejuvenation for their ability to restore volume to the skin in a way that plastic surgery and other cosmetic treatments cannot. JUVÉDERM® is one of the safest, most effective injectable fillers because it offers smooth, natural-looking results with a very low risk of unwanted side effects.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bob Basu specializes in facial rejuvenation at his Houston practice. His experience in both cosmetic and reconstructive procedures make him a top choice among Texas men and women seeking a natural-looking enhancement to their appearances.

Why Consider JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is an injectable dermal filler designed to plump and enhance the soft tissues of the skin. It is made of hyaluronic acid gel, a naturally-occurring substance found in the connective tissues of joints in the human body.
People who seek JUVÉDERM® injections typically wish to:
- Reduce facial wrinkles and creases
- Plump thin lips
- Fill in acne scars and other skin depressions
- Restore volume to the hands
- Enhance the shape of the cheeks, chin and nose
JUVÉDERM® XC, the latest formulation of JUVÉDERM®, also contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, so no pre-treatment anesthesia or additional numbing is required to ensure your treatment is comfortable.
How Much Does JUVÉDERM® Cost?
JUVÉDERM® prices vary per practice and depending on the amount of correction needed. At Basu Plastic Surgery, our regular JUVÉDERM® prices are as follows:
- JUVÉDERM® Ultra: $600 per syringe
- JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus: $675 per syringe
We also offer regular special offers for JUVÉDERM® treatments and other procedures. In addition to special promotions, we offer plastic surgery financing options to help make your procedures as affordable as possible.
Your JUVÉDERM® Options
Once you’ve decided to move forward with JUVÉDERM® treatments, you’ll be able to make several choices about your procedure.
Your main decision is where you would like to have JUVÉDERM® injections. Many people choose to use JUVÉDERM® in or around the cheek area, as this is one of the most common places for the face to lose volume. You may also wish to have lip enhancement with JUVÉDERM®.
Some people choose to have a non surgical nose job using dermal fillers to refine the shape of the nose. Others use JUVÉDERM® to minimize the appearance of pitted scars.
Many people combine their JUVÉDERM® treatments with BOTOX® Cosmetic. BOTOX® can be the perfect complement to dermal fillers because the two injectables can be used to correct different problems.
Your JUVÉDERM Treatment
During JUVÉDERM® treatment, our certified injector will cleanse your skin and discuss the strategic injection points to use to correct your cosmetic concerns. We will then inject the JUVÉDERM® product, a process that takes only 15 to 20 minutes. Most people require 1 to 2 syringes of JUVÉDERM® during their initial treatment session, and additional product may be needed for touch-up injections 1 to 2 weeks later.
Your Recovery & Results
JUVÉDERM® may result in mild, temporary side effects, such as bruising, redness and swelling, which last about 1 week or less. Other, more serious potential JUVÉDERM® side effects, such as developing lumps or bumps, are less common and can typically be avoided by choosing an experienced, highly-skilled injector from Basu Plastic Surgery.
When injected, the hyaluronic acid gel in JUVÉDERM® hydrates the skin, temporarily adding volume from beneath the skin’s surface to create a smoother, more youthful appearance. The JUVÉDERM® product is gradually broken down and safely absorbed by the body over a period of about 4 to 9 months. Areas where more movement occurs, such as the lips, usually require repeat JUVÉDERM® injections more frequently than areas like the nose or chin.
Following your JUVÉDERM® injections, you may return to normal daily activities immediately. However, you may be instructed to avoid sun exposure and strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours. Your injector may also recommend applying ice to the treatment area to minimize swelling.
