Juvederm is one of the most popular injectables used by the skin care experts at our Beverly Hills med spa, which helps erase the fine lines and deep wrinkles we get with age to restore the smooth, natural contours of our youth.
Young skin contains plenty of collagen and hyaluronic acid – keeping skin looking plump and full. As we age, collagen depletes, causing the skin to wrinkle and sag.
The good news is Juvederm is a fast, effective solution. It easily re-plumps and rejuvenates areas where you've lost volume, making you look younger and more beautiful. This treatment is sometimes called the liquid facelift, and it gives you smooth, gorgeous skin without the need for an actual facelift surgery. Our specialists here at Cassileth Skin Care are trained to offer among the finest results in Juvederm Beverly Hills has available.
Juvederm is a smooth gel substance (the consistency of Jell-O) composed of hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring component in our joints, connective and neural cells). This FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment is the quickest, no down-time way to create a more youthful, refreshed look.
The consistency of each product varies: Perlane (thicker, containing more hyaluronic acid) is good for deeper folds, while Restylane and Juvederm are used to fill fine lines and the delicate under-eye area. Juvederm is the softest filler, which makes it great for plumping your delicate lips. Once we evaluate your face, we'll create a filler plan tailored for your needs, using the best solutions and excellent injection techniques.
We will create a personalized treatment plan to address your concerns and provide you with excellent results worthy of the term liquid facelift. Before treatment, we'll clean the area and apply numbing cream for 10 – 15 minutes. During the treatment, we use a very fine needle to place the product in the areas you need it. You'll get to see the results and look younger right away! The liquid facelift using Juvederm takes from 30 minutes to one hour at our Beverly Hills med spa, depending on number of treatment areas. We are proud to offer among the most beautiful results with Juvederm Beverly Hills provides!
Everyone reabsorbs filler at different rates, so it's difficult to say exactly how long filler will last for you, but the range is typically from six months to one year.
There is a risk of bruising, lasting from a few days to one week, which can be covered with makeup. However, to be extra safe, we recommend that you book your appointment at least 2 weeks prior to any major functions, appearances or events.
A week prior to your Juvederm treatment, avoid the following products. They are blood thinners and can increase your chances of bruising:
If you have a tendency to bruise easily you may bruise a bit following your treatment. To reduce swelling and bruising, apply an ice pack during the first 24 hours. Any remaining bruises can be easily covered with concealer.
To decrease the likelihood of bruising and swelling, we recommend that you prop your head up when you sleep and try not to sleep (put pressure) on the treated areas for one to two nights.
Avoid sun and UV sunlamp exposure until swelling and redness have disappeared. To reduce the chance of bruising and minimize the length and severity of bruises, we recommend the oral supplement Arnika Forte. It contains the homeopathic remedy Arnica Montana (which helps with bruising and swelling), Bromelain (a natural anti-inflammatory found in pineapples), grape seed extract and Vitamin C. This powerful combination of purified elements helps reduce the length and severity of bruises. Some of our patients feel that it even prevents bruises from ever happening! In addition to our facial fillers, we also offer treatment using Botox in Beverly Hills, which can provide additional youthful effects.
