Juvederm® Ultra Plus Beverly Hills
Juvderm® is FDA approved for lip augmentation and as a facial soft tissue filler for moderate facial wrinkles and folds, ie. smile lines. Juvederm® is often used around the eyes to improve the appearance of lower eyelid bags.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a clear hyaluronic acid based gel injection that is used as a general soft tissue filler to smooth out the appearance of wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is safe and is commonly used facial dermal filler because it is sugar molecule naturally found in the body. Juvederm® Voluma is used for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface volume loss.
How is the procedure done?
Juvederm® is an in-office procedure that takes just a few minutes. Dr. Dass will first asses the face and determine the areas of concern. A series of injections will be placed to improve the facial contours and/or lip augmentation. The injections contain Lidocaine (a local anesthetic) to make the procedure well tolerated. You may experience temporary redness and/or bruising due to the injections.
How long does it last?
You will see the results immediately after the injections are placed. The results are temporary because hyaluronic acid is slowly broken down by the body. The Juvederm® injections will last 9-12 months depending on the location in which it was injected. Areas in the face with minimal movement tend to last the longest. With repeat injections at 6 months, a technique called product layering, the improvement may last longer.
