Juvéderm is an effective, Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved dermal filler that is used to address lack of hydration and volume, aid in smoothing wrinkles in the facial skin, and augment and shape certain important facial structures/features such as the cheeks, lips, and for lip augmentation, one of Dr. Chiu's most sought after procedures. Our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Chiu, offers all the different formulations of the Juvéderm family of injectables to help his Pittsburgh, PA patients achieve a more radiant and youthful-looking skin that defies the signs of aging.
Each Juvéderm variation is composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the skin/body, that promotes structure and support in the face, helping to fill in wrinkles around the nasolabial folds as well as adding hydration and volume to the cheeks and lips. If patients are seeking a nonsurgical way to rejuvenate their skin, then we encourage them to schedule a consult at Today's Cosmetic Surgery to learn more about the benefits of this injectable.
Dr. Chiu offers his patients as many options as possible when it comes to achieving natural, rejuvenating results for their skin and face. He provides his patients with different variations of the highly effective wrinkle filler Juvéderm, which have been FDA approved and designed to address different cosmetic concerns. Today's Cosmetic Surgery is pleased to offer:

"I've never had anything but great experiences at Today's Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Chiu is an artist and has never disappointed. I've been getting Juvederm injections in my lips from him for almost 2 years. My lips always look natural, full, and beautiful. Not only has Dr.Chiu consistently exceeded my expectations, but so has Sara, his wife who works at the front desk. She is always so helpful and kind. In fact, a few months ago I was having an allergic reaction on my face (unrelated to any procedures) and I couldn't get in anywhere to see a dermatologist. I ended up calling Dr. Chiu's office in hopes that maybe they had heard of something like this before as they are in a similar business. Sara is was nice enough to call a great Dermatologist in the area and pull some strings to get me in that same day. It ended up being a reaction to a facial cleanser that I was using, but Sara went out of her way to help me even when it had nothing to do with Dr. Chiu's services. I love going to Today's Cosmetic Surgery and I would recommend them to anyone. *I have attached pictures that I took a few hours after a procedure, so they are still a little swollen."- K.P. / Yelp / Nov 27, 2017
"Will Definitely Be Going Back, Worth Longer Drive - Pittsburgh, PA - Very friendly and did a careful and excellent job on my filler and Botox."- P. / RealSelf / Feb 18, 2011
"Three members of our family have gone to Dr. Chiu over the last few years for noninvasive facial procedures such as fillers, botox, and fraxel. I chose him after seeing some of the work he performed on others. The high praise he has received is more than well deserved. He takes all the time needed to answer questions, listen to every concern, and then offer his suggestions. His approach is definitely more conservative and will not perform a procedure that he feels is not necessary. In today's world of plastic surgery that is rare. I have never had any pain, and bruising has never been an issue. Most times you will not even be aware that he has completed the procedure. His work and technique is truly impeccable. Sara, who runs the office always offers total support before a procedure, as well as followup afterwards. This is a very hands on team offering wonderful patient care. I would highly recommend Dr. Chiu without any hesitation."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Dec 17, 2013
"Dr. Chiu is an eminently qualified Facial plastic surgeon. I wouldn't trust my face to just any plastic surgeon, especially one who didn't have further specialized credentials, no matter how much "cheaper" the procedures. I had facelift, brow and eyelid surgery with very little bruising, and i have had Botox and lip injections As well, and I love the way I look. I feel so much happier with my appearance."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Mar 07, 2014
"I’ve had nothing but great experiences at Today’s Cosmetic Surgey. Dr. Chiu and Sara are professional, compassionate, and experts at what they do. I have been getting Juvederm injections in my lips there for almost 2 years. My lips ALWAYS look amazing, natural, and just the right amount of full. I was very nervous when I went in for my first time because there are so many horror stories of lip injections. However, my lips have exceeded my expectations every time and Dr. Chiu is truly an artist. I would recommend him to anyone!"- C.P. / Google / Nov 19, 2017
The best candidates for Juvéderm:

- Have thin lips and desire plumper lips
- Have age-related volume loss in cheeks
- Desire long-term results
- Desire natural-looking results
What to Expect
Beforehand, Dr. Chiu will determine the appropriate formula, injection site(s), and the proper dosage to begin this in-office treatment. Juvéderm already has a numbing agent (Lidocaine) included, and Dr. Chiu will typically administer some topical numbing agent as well, making the treatment very well tolerated in most cases.The filler will be delivered through a fine needle to the lips, cheeks, and/or wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth. Patients may feel a small pinch or a pressure sensation from the injections. The appointment time typically lasts 45 – 60 minutes.
After the injection, there might be slight redness in the treated area. There could also be mild swelling, but it should go away rather quickly. Since there’s no downtime associated with Juvéderm, patients can return to their normal activities immediately, except for strenuous exercise. The face will be dramatically improved immediately after the treatment, and most patients can expect reliable results for up to 1 year.
