Juvederm in Los Angeles, CA
Wrinkles, fine lines, sunken cheeks and deep creases are some of the more prominent signs of aging that take over the appearance. At Rejuva Medical Aesthetics, Kian Karimi, MD, FACS, and Chester Griffiths, MD, FACS, double board-certified plastic surgeons, use JUVÉDERM® on the residents of Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and Brentwood, CA, and the surrounding areas, to add volume and restore a smooth complexion.
What is JUVÉDERM®?
As a dermal filler for skin imperfections due to aging, JUVÉDERM® is a safe and effective treatment for moderate to severe wrinkles and lines. It is most commonly used to diminish fine facial lines, sagging cheeks, lip augmentation, and marionette lines.
JUVÉDERM® contains highly cross-linked hyaluronic acid (HA) particles in the highest concentration available which allows for the longevity of this material. HA is a natural substance produced in the body to add moisture to the skin. When injected into the skin, it brings moisture to the skin and increases volume, so skin looks smoother and more youthful. Since JUVÉDERM® has no animal origin and contains HA, there is no risk of adverse reaction to the skin.
Benefits of JUVÉDERM®
JUVÉDERM® contains HA to smooth the complexion and offers the following benefits:
- Long lasting
- Little to no discomfort
- No risk of allergic reaction
- No recovery or downtime
Who is the Ideal Candidate for JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is ideal for anyone who shows significant signs of aging. It is FDA approved for anyone who wants a more rejuvenated appearance but is not ready for or does not need invasive cosmetic surgeries to achieve a desired look.
What Do I Do to Prepare for My JUVÉDERM® Treatment?
There is no preparation for JUVÉDERM® injections. Because it contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, there is virtually no risk of adverse reaction; so no testing is necessary. If possible, you may want to avoid any blood thinning medications in the week before your treatment to prevent excess bruising or bleeding at the injection site. You should also avoid smoking especially if the vertical lines in your lips are treated as this may hinder the success of the treatment.
What Happens During My JUVÉDERM® Treatment?
We take great care so that your JUVÉDERM® treatment is quick, easy and painless. To start, we apply a numbing cream to the targeted area so that there is no discomfort during the injections. We inject the filler with a very thin gauge needle and gently massage the area to ensure the gel is evenly spread under the upper layer of skin. When the JUVÉDERM® is injected, the hyaluronic acid attracts water to the area which adds volume to the skin to make it smooth and fresh looking. After that, we apply ice packs to the injection sites to minimize swelling and redness.
How Long Does It Take to Perform JUVÉDERM® Treatments?
JUVÉDERM® treatments take no more than an hour to perform. It is ideal to have during a lunch hour or during the day just as any other scheduled doctor’s appointment.
What to Expect After JUVÉDERM® Treatments
There may be some slight redness and swelling at the injection sites, but that typically resolves itself within a day or so. Any redness is easily camouflaged with makeup. Most people continue with their day after their appointment.
When Will I See the Results?
You may start to see the results of JUVÉDERM® immediately following your appointment. The results continue to improve over the next few weeks and last for up to a year.
How Much Does JUVÉDERM® Cost in Los Angeles?
The cost of JUVÉDERM® is based on how many injections you require, the number of appointments it takes to achieve your desired look and whether this treatment is combined with others. We can discuss the cost with you during your consultation as well as our payment options. In addition to accepting cash, checks, and credit cards, we offer financing through CareCredit®.
