The face is the human body's most expressive part, speaking for us when our tongues are occupied with stamps or busy flirting with our tonsils. Reward your face with today's Groupon: for $325, you get one syringe of Juvéderm at the practice of Christian N. Ford, MD, in Cohasset (a $650 value).
Having honed his ability to bolster natural beauty during a plastic-surgery residency at Stanford University Medical Center, Dr. Christian Ford combats signs of aging with Juvéderm Ultra injections. One dose of the filler is FDA-approved to soften folds framing the mouth or flatten wrinkles for up to one year, depending upon the patient's metabolism. The serum, which is infused with the same protein that abounds in youthful skin, restores moisture and volume to maturing tissues and is blended into a smooth gel that leaves no telltale bumps or conquering flagpoles on the skin's surface. Mild anesthetic soothes the prick of the needle, and fresh-faced patients may dive back into life as usual after their 20-minute visit. While some people can get full results from one syringe, additional syringes may be needed depending on skin condition.
