Juvederm Newport Beach
Juvéderm™ is an injectable dermal filler which offers a safe and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing facial wrinkles and folds.
All facial lines and wrinkles are contour folds in the face that can become more noticeable with age. Previously, collagen injections were used to “fill” these folds or lines on the face as to decrease their appearance. Collagen was effective at improving facial lines, but the improvements did not last very long (2-3 months). Collagen injections required repeated allergy testing. Over the last few years, purified hyaluronic acid fillers have become very popular due to their longer last results and the ease of the treatments for both patients and their plastic surgeons. Dermal fillers are the fastest growing nonsurgical aesthetic procedure in the United States according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. But all dermal fillers are not the same!
Juvéderm™ is the ONLY hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved to last up to 1 year. The unique manufacturing process provides a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid for long-lasting results. It also creates a smooth consistency gel that flows consistently and easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel-so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! Only Juvéderm™ is so smooth-other hyaluronic acid fillers currently on the market are made of granular consistency gels.**
A “next-generation” filler: Juvéderm™ is a “next-generation” non-animal dermal filler that is made from hyaluronic acid-a naturally occurring substance that plays a vital role in hydrating your skin and replenishing its natural volume. No allergy skin tests are needed prior to receiving treatment. Juvéderm™ is available in two formulations- Juvéderm™ Ultra for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, and Juvéderm™ Ultra Plus, a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles. This allows your healthcare professional to tailor treatment to meet your unique needs.
Typically, Juvéderm™ Ultra is used for correcting lines over the eyes, lips, and cheek areas. Juvéderm™ Ultra Plus is used for correcting lines around the nose and middle cheek area and above the corners of the mouth.
Injections can be done in 5-10 minutes in the office. Although any discomfort with the injections may be quite tolerable for many, the areas of injection can also be numbed initially with numbing creams or injections of numbing medications such as lidocaine.
Down-time and recovery is typically minimal. Most everyone can resume full activity the following day.
