What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a long-lasting gel dermal filler used to replenish volume and fullness to areas in the face where it has been lost. During a treatment, Dr. Kalantarian injects Juvederm into the deeper layers of the skin beneath the fold or crease, filling in lines for instant volume and fullness.
Juvederm is made up of hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar naturally found in the body that is FDA-approved for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. The main difference with Juvederm in comparison with other popular hyaluronic acid fillers is that Juvederm has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid and a smoother formulation. In Los Angeles and Orange County Juvederm is preferred by patients because it produces longer-lasting results that provide more natural and even-filling effects. Juvederm results typically last between 6 to 9 months; however, regular treatments may provide long-term results over time.
Plump lips are a sign of youth, as lips naturally tend to decrease in volume as the years go by. Juvederm is an indeal injectable filler to increase lip plumpness. Hyaluronic acid binds with the body’s collagen, and some studies show Juvederm can actually increase collagen production, producing longer lasting results. In less than 45 minutes you can have fuller lips with little downtime. Juvederm tends to produce less bruising and puffiness than other injectable fillers, making it possible for most patients to get injections on their lunch break, put on their make up, and get back to work right away.
