WHAT IS JUVÉDERM®?
Juvéderm® is a type of dermal filler that works in two ways: it smooths away fine lines and wrinkles all for a softer, more youthful appearance. It is typically used to restore volume in our cheeks causing them to “lift” and smooth lines around the mouth and nose. Juvéderm® is not a permanent treatment and cannot give you the same results as plastic surgery. Juvéderm® is one of the leading hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers on the market, from Allergan, the makers of Botox®. All Juvéderm® fillers are natural fillers because they are made of mostly hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is found naturally in the body and works by delivering nutrients to our skin and this helps retain moisture and softness and adds volume. As we age, hyaluronic acid in our skin decreases, causing the skin to lose its fullness. Our skin then begins to droop, sag, and wrinkle. The Juvéderm® formula is non animal-based and has a very low risk of allergic reaction or rejection.
IS JUVÉDERM® RIGHT FOR ME?
Anyone over the age of 35 could use at least a little help with loss of volume as a result of natural aging. Juvéderm® is an excellent solution if you are looking for a quick fix for lines, wrinkles, scars (such as those caused by acne), or cheeks that have lost fullness. You can plan on the results lasting up to a year, depending on the body part that is injected and the individual receiving the injections. Juvéderm® may not be as effective if you have severe scarring, thinner skin, or looser skin. For the best results, it is recommended to avoid medications that cause your blood to thin. Even aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) should be avoided about a week before treatment to reduce bleeding and bruising at the injection site. It is not recommended to get Juvéderm® injections if you are pregnant or nursing. In general, you should be in good health, avoid smoking, and should have a realistic, positive outlook.

"I have been going to Dr. T for my BOTOX now for nearly 5 years, he is a perfectionist in the work he does! He takes his time with me, listens and the results are the best! Highly recommended!"- N.M. / Google / Aug 21, 2018
"In December 2020, Allure Plastic Surgery Center in Red Bank, NJ launched their 12 days of Beauty giveaway on Instagram. I must have been feeling lucky that day since I was selected to win a few free services including the O-Shot. At the time of entering the contest, I was unsure what the O-Shot was. After research, my interest was piqued when I learned there is a non-surgical way to increase sexual arousal and rejuvenate the vagina. Past Experience I have always struggled in my adult life being able to reach orgasm. In my last relationship of 2 years this was a serious topic of conversation as my boyfriend lost confidence in himself along with a bruised ego when he was not able to get me to climax. Reaching orgasm can feel elusive or even impossible for many women. Some can’t climax at all. This is normal but it’s worth determining whether there’s something getting in the way of having an orgasm. I have always been comfortable with my own body and was able to be more relaxed when I was alone with the help of vibrator devices. O-Shot Experience On the day of the appointment, I met with Dr. Thomas Theocharides and his assistant Nadine Russell for a 30-minute consultation. During the consultation Dr. Theocharides wanted to ensure I was a good candidate for the procedure, so we discussed the pros and cons of my sexual history and what I was hoping to achieve after the procedure. Dr. Theocharides made me feel very comfortable while discussing the most intimate things. He then began to explain the procedure which involves taking a vial of my blood, spun in a centrifuge to extract the plasma followed by numbing cream on my clitoris. After 20 mins of numbing, a large needle filled with my platelet-rich plasma (PRP) was then injected into the vagina and clitoral area to stimulate new cell growth. Nadine was in the room while this took place, and she was very supportive by handing me a stress ball and held my hand if I felt any discomfort. The entire procedure was quick and painless as there was just slight pressure. Once complete, I left the office ready to experiment. Testing out the O-Shot My first rule of business was to test out the O-Shot using a vibrator as in the past I was able to attain a slight orgasm this way. Within a couple days after the treatment, the O-Shot was able to enhance the sensation in my clitoris while allowing me to achieve an orgasm faster and more intensely. Nadine advised me that it may take up to 8 weeks for the growth factors to fully engage. My thoughts were, WOW this can get better!! It’s now been 6 months since the O-Shot and it’s still going strong, except this time I am able to test it out on a new relationship and let me just say its 100% worth it. On average, the O-Shot lasts about a year and I would highly recommend this treatment to any women who enjoy intimacy, want to increase lubrication, sexual desire and improve stimulation. Thank you, Dr. Thomas Theocharides & Nadine Russell, for such a pleasurable experience."- K.A / Office Visit / Sep 28, 2021
"I have been dealing with Dr. T for a little over a year, and I’m impressed by his kind caring service not to mention that he listens to your concerns and MORE IMPORTANTLY stands behind his work.. He has a professional associate Nadine that is highly responsive to concerns and inquiries as well... All in all a refreshing experience from the ‘ norm’ in the medical industry."- Anonymous / Office Visit / May 28, 2021

"I was researching botox for men online when I came across something called “scrotox”. It is apparently becoming an increasing cosmetic thing for men. I suffer from urological conditions and have been experiencing testicular/scrotal discomfort and pain for years and have been miserable. I was curious if doing this cosmetic procedure could also help me with relief of my testicular/scrotal pain. I called a few places and then found Dr. Theocharides and Nadine. I was nervous asking about this at first but then they were so easy to talk to and I felt completely comfortable. Dr. T agreed to do the scrotox on me for cosmetic reasons only. I went and had the scrotox done. It really didn’t take that long and I did not feel any pain at all with the injections. Dr. T was cool to talk with the entire time also and I was not nervous at all. He is actually a really cool and nice person and it was an enjoyable experience. About two weeks after the scrotox procedure I started noticing results and maybe by week 3 I noticed my scrotum was completely relaxed and the best part was that I did not feel my scrotal/testicular pain anymore either. It has been about 2 months now and I’m still pain free. As for appearance my scrotum used to be tight all the time and my testicles were up near my body. They almost never hung freely. Now my scrotum is completely relaxed and testicles hang much lower. So now I am pain free and also enjoying the cosmetic appearance of having low hanging testicles. It has also improved my sex life as well. I am completely satisfied. If you are curious about getting scrotox I highly recommend Dr. T and Nadine. They are a great team. I will definitely be going there for all of my facial botox and scrotox treatments from now on. You will be in good hands if you do too."- CN / Office Visit / Mar 12, 2021
WHAT TO EXPECT
The procedure itself will last 15-30 minutes, depending on how many syringes are needed and the body part(s) that are being treated. A typical session uses 1 or 2 syringes of Juvéderm®. The syringe of Juvéderm® will be injected into the mid to deep dermis (below the outer layer of the skin). You will be able to see your results immediately! You may experience some minor swelling or bruising but this should resolve after a week. The results from Juvéderm® injections will last for a year depending on the body part being treated and it will naturally be broken down and reabsorbed by your body over time.
