JUVEDERM® in Long Beach is an injectable filler used to improve moderate to harsh lines and wrinkles and to restore volume to the face for both men and women. This non-surgical anti-aging treatment is an ideal option for those who want to avoid weeks of surgical downtime.
How Does JUVEDERM® Work?
As we age, our faces begin to change. We notice our natural volume begins to melt away in areas like the cheeks, and wrinkles start to form in the midface region.
JUVEDERM® injectable gel is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that instantly helps restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration, so it is safe to inject into the face.
JUVEDERM® can smooth away harsh nasolabial folds, the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth (also called smile lines or parentheses lines). This injectable filler can treat marionette lines and perioral lip lines, and it can even be used as a lip filler to plump thin lines
The JUVEDERM® Treatment Process
JUVEDERM® injectable gel is a non-surgical physician-administered “walk in, walk out” treatment. At the start of the JUVEDERM® treatment process, the injection sites are marked as a guide. JUVEDERM® is then placed under the skin using a fine needle to fill the soft tissue of the dermis to add volume and reduce wrinkles.
Because JUVEDERM® contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, the process is very comfortable. The injection process takes approximately 15-20 minutes with immediate results.
After JUVEDERM®, there is little to no downtime or recovery time needed. Some patients may experience mild bruising and swelling for a couple of days, however nothing that should keep them from their regular daily activities.
Price varies when it comes to JUVEDERM® treatments. The cost of JUVEDERM® is based on factors like the number of injections needed, the number of areas requiring treatment, and various other factors.
