Enhance your facial features by restoring volume and reducing moderate and deep age lines with Juvederm in Beverly Hills. Rejuvenate your thinning lips, smooth away your deepening wrinkles, and restore your facial contours with the Juvederm collection of dermal fillers.
What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a collection of hyaluronic-acid dermal fillers that provide non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body, where it attracts and retains moisture. This creates new volume. Juvederm injections add volume to restore or redefine the contours of the face. It has been FDA-approved for patients ages 21 and older.
Which Juvederm Products Are Available?
The Juvederm family of injectable treatments comes in several different formulations, each designed to target various concerns.
Juvederm Ultra is often used to plump the lips. However, we feel caution must be taken to use this product conservatively if used at the lips to reduce the risk of migration and an unnatural appearance. We more commonly used this filler at the nasolabial folds.
Juvederm Ultra Plus has a thicker consistency than Juvederm Ultra, which is ideal for filling deeper lines. This is a great product for treating deeper nasolabial folds and for restoring volume to hollow areas.
Volbella has a very soft gel consistency that is commonly used for lip augmentation. It volumizes the lips and can also reduce smoker’s lines around the lips.
Vollure is used to smooth away moderate and severe lines and wrinkles such as the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and parentheses lines around the mouth.
Voluma is a thick structural gel that lifts the cheek area to reduce hollowness in the midface region. This restores youthful fullness to the cheeks.
Juvederm injections are suitable for men and women who are looking to address signs of aging, such as moderate and severe wrinkles and volume loss, without undergoing surgery.
If you have a history of severe allergies or are pregnant or nursing, then you may be recommended for other treatment options. Since the formula contains lidocaine, it cannot be administered if you are allergic to this substance.
To determine your eligibility for Juvederm injections, a skin examination will be performed. Your skin tone and elasticity will be assessed to develop the best treatment plan for you.
Your medical history will be reviewed, including pre-existing conditions and current medications and supplements. Discuss your motivations, along with any concerns, and feel free to ask questions at any time.
The Treatment Session
To begin your Juvederm treatment, the target area will be cleansed and sanitized. The injection areas will be carefully mapped out and marked. Various numbing techniques can be utilized to ensure comfort, especially if you are particularly sensitive to pain.
Next, the Juvederm injections will be carefully administered to the target areas with precision and utmost care. The lidocaine in the formula will further numb the region for increased comfort.
A light massage may follow to even out the distribution of the substance. The whole procedure can take as little as 15 minutes or as long as an hour.
There is no significant downtime or recovery period necessary after Juvederm injections. There may be swelling, redness, or tenderness on the treated areas, but these should disappear shortly. There is possibility of bruising, but this can usually be concealed with makeup.
Avoid touching and rubbing the treated areas for the first few days until the fillers have settled into place. Stay away from intense heat or strenuous exercise.
How Much Does Juvederm Cost?
The cost of Juvederm treatments is based on a number of factors, including the type of Juvederm product administered. The number of syringes used and the total number of treated areas can also impact the overall price.
