Juvéderm® in Los Angeles, Santa Monica

As your skin ages, your cells lose their ability to produce hyaluronic acid. This causes the skin to lose volume, often resulting in wrinkles and folds that can appear on the lower half of your face. While volume loss can make a face look sunken and older, a filler such as Juvéderm® ?available at Younique Cosmetic Surgery in Los Angeles can make a difference for up to a year.

Juvéderm® works quickly to smooth out wrinkles not just fine lines, but moderate to severe grooves and folds that develop in one of the most active areas of your face: around the mouth and nose.

Contact Dr. Mark Youssef to discuss Juvéderm® for patients in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and beyond. To schedule a free consultation or get more information, call (310) 434-0044.

What's YOUnique about Juvéderm®?

Juvéderm® is a hyaluronic acid filler used to restore volume to the areas of the face that have lost elasticity. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent. With just one Juvéderm® treatment, you can have results that last up to a year.

The filler works on all skin types and reduces the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth and nose. The main problems targeted for treatment are

  • smile lines, also known as ?parenthesis?
  • marionette lines
  • vertical lines

These wrinkles combined can give you a grouchy, grumpy look due to the way they create a downturned expression. Thick lines on either side of the mouth give the impression of a permanent frown of disgust. Juvéderm® eases the harshness of those lines, allowing others to see a more accurate and welcoming you.

What else does a Juvéderm® treatment involve?

Juvéderm® side effects are usually mild and go away with time. They include redness, tenderness at the treatment site, swelling, mild to moderate pain, and itching.

Juvéderm® can be administered in as little as 15 minutes, and requires very minimal downtime. It is a good idea to avoid alcohol, lengthy sun exposure, and serious exercise in the 24 hours after getting the treatment.
