"Simply put Dr. Levenson is the BEST! His over the top knowledge when it comes to medicine and diagnosing an illness is second to none. His availability is second to none and his ability to prescribe a solution to an illness is second to none. He has helped heal ALL four of my kids, my wife and myself more than once. Just last week I was struck with a case of vertigo in the middle of a parking lot. I had no idea what had hit me. I called Doc L and within in two rings he picked up. Over the phone, yes over the phone he accurately diagnosed the problem, and had me go to hospital where the ER Doc came to same conclusion Doc L came to over the phone. He truly saved my life. His physicals are in depth, giving us the confidence to keep on living actively. There is no one better than Doc Levenson when it comes to taking care of the health of my family and me!"- T.M. / Google / Sep 18, 2019

"Dr. Levenson is so amazing! He does my Botox, filler, oh shot, and prescribed me my skin routine. Can I just tell you this man transformed my life! Lol. In 2011 I had broken my upper jaw that forced my teeth back (I know horrific) and as a result my top lip lost a lot of volume. When I finally got the courage to do filler..(I was scared because I didn’t want to look fake) Dr. Levinson WOULD NEVER make anyone look over done. I feel like I got my beauty back after feeling very insecure from the trauma I experienced from my accident. As far as the oh shot, can I just say... I have spent YEARS in bladder pain. Chronic, constant bladder pain. I got so used to it... I didn’t know what it felt like to not have my bladder “on” 24/7. That’s not an exaggeration. I told Dr. L this and he said let’s try the oh shot for you to help regenerate that tissue around the urethra. Well can I tell you after YEARS of dealing with this I have had such an amazing reduction that I can enjoy normal activities like the gym, the movies, meditation class. All those things suffered because my life revolves around trickling urine. I don’t have leakage anymore, I don’t get up constantly in the night. I used to get up to use the restroom 3-5 times a night. It WAS AWFUL. I feel like a normal human being again!!!!!!! Oh, also I used to have horrible acne in my teens and 20s and now at 33 I feel and look healthier & younger than I did then!!!!"- J.C. / Google / Jul 21, 2019

Youthfully Smooth and Full
Juvéderm treatments generally only last around 15 – 30 minutes, based on the number of areas being treated. To minimize discomfort throughout the treatment, Juvéderm fillers contain lidocaine (a local anesthetic). Following your procedure, you can resume your normal routine; however, strenuous activity like exercise should be skipped for at least a day. You need to be cautious to not put your hands on your face immediately after your injections to prevent moving the gel into unintended areas.
You should see a visible enhancement immediately following your Juvéderm treatment, but you could also see light bruising or swelling in the injected areas of the face for about 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm injections typically last as long as a year; several patients notice that their improvements last over a year after a few years of injections. Talk to Dr. Levenson about how soon to schedule your next treatment at The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity to maintain your results.
Juvéderm Ideal Candidates
How much does Juvéderm cost?
The price of a Juvéderm injection will be dependent on the amount of filler that is needed to achieve your cosmetic goals. Before your injection treatment, a personalized injection plan will be created to match your aesthetic goals. Once this is done, Dr. Levenson can estimate your costs and discuss payment options.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
Though many patients don't think it's needed, a numbing cream can be massaged into the treatment site before injection if you're concerned about any discomfort. After the injection, you might experience mild to moderate bruising and swelling that should subside within a week. Please contact The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity if you have any severe discomfort or signs of an infection following your Juvéderm injection.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Injectable fillers and relaxers address facial wrinkles but in different ways. Wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX, work to smooth dynamic wrinkles created by frequent muscle movements. Juvéderm is an injectable wrinkle filler that improves static wrinkles and adds volume. Juvéderm is ideal for treating mild to moderate lines and wrinkles or to reverse volume loss in your cheeks and lips.
What results can I expect?
You may need to wait a few days to view the complete improvements from your Juvéderm injections. Typically, it takes only one treatment appointment to reach your desired outcome. However, you may make a follow-up appointment if you want to see more improvement or volume.
How long do results typically last?
Your results from a Juvéderm injection may last anywhere from 1 – 2 years. This can vary based on which formula is selected and the injection site(s). The length of your results will be faster or slower depending on the speed at which your body absorbs the filler.
