Beverly Hills Injectable Gel, Juvederm®
Helping Patients Regain the Smoothness & Volume of Youth
Juvederm® is a popular wrinkle filler produced by Allergan, Inc., maker of Botox® Cosmetic. Hyaluronic acid is the main component in Juvederm® injectable gel, a substance that can be found naturally in the body. It acts as a cell protector, cushioning agent and space filler in the skin. Over time, your skin loses volume as hyaluronic acid gets depleted. Dr. Andre Aboolian offers this incredible technology for the temporary correction of facial wrinkles and folds at his Beverly Hills plastic surgery practice.
With a wrinkle filler like Juvederm®, we can restore that volume to reduce the appearance of conditions such as:
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
- Marionette lines
- Hollow tear trough area
- Thin lips or lip wrinkles
How Juvederm® Works
Juvederm® comes in several different formulas to treat skin wrinkles and creases of varying depth. The newest addition to the Juvederm® line is called “Ultra XC,” which contains anesthetic for a more comfortable injection.
Before your treatment, the skin is cleansed and a topical anesthetic is applied (if needed) to numb the area. Using a fine needle, the doctor injects Juvederm® using a special technique, placing the product at a specific depth below the dermis. A brief massage of the injected area will ensure smooth placement of the filler.
Beneath the skin surface, Juvederm®does the following:
- Combines with your naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid
- Binds with water
- Increases skin volume and hydration
What to Expect After Treatment with Juvederm® Injectable Gel
Juvederm® is biodegradable and long-lasting. After treatment, your body will begin to break down, metabolize, and eventually clear away the product. Your results can last 6 to 12 months but duration may vary, so ask Dr. Aboolian when you should return for a touch-up treatment.
During the first 24 hours after your injection(s), you may be advised to avoid certain activities such as exercise, sun exposure, and alcohol consumption. If you experience swelling in the treated area, Dr. Aboolian may instruct you to apply ice for a short period of time. Side effects of Juvederm® are typically mild or moderate in nature. They include but are not limited to redness, tenderness, firmness, swelling, bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. Ask us for more information if you are concerned about these adverse events.
