Juvederm ®, the latest dermal filler advance from Allergan, makers of BOTOX ® Cosmetic (Botulinum Toxin Type A), is a ‘next generation’ smooth gel, non-animal dermal filler offering a natural look/feel and long-lasting results for up to six months or longer. Juvederm ® dermal filler lasts long because it’s the only dermal filler currently available with the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid and a special formulation process. This process creates a smooth gel that flows easily into the skin, creating smooth, natural looks.
Cosmetique now offers treatments of Juvederm in Culver City in two forms so we can tailor treatment to your unique needs. Juvederm ® Ultra provides versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm ® Ultra Plus is a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles. Call us at (310) 837-5555 for a complimentary consultation and learn whether this treatment may be right for you.
What is Juvederm?
Top of the page
Over recent years, hyaluronic acid (HA) has emerged as the miracle compound for filling in wrinkles. HA is a natural substance that is found throughout your body. It gives volume to the skin, lubricates the joints and gives the eyes their shape. HA is a naturally occurring substance (complex sugar) found throughout the body in all living organisms. In the skin, HA fills the space between collagen and elastin fibers — replenishing the natural support layers lost with aging — while delivering essential nutrients and hydration. Over time, HA is gradually reabsorbed into the body.
The active ingredient in Juvederm ® dermal filler, hyaluronic acid, is a naturally occurring, biodegradable complex sugar found in the human body and in all living organisms. Among other things, hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin and adds volume, contributing to the overall appearance of the skin.
Like BOTOX ®, which has been available for more than 16 years and is approved to treat 20 conditions in more than 75 countries around the world, hyaluronic acid has been used for more than 20 years to treat multiple medical conditions, including those associated with the eye and the knee.
Juvederm is an FDA-approved dermal filler that can last up to one year. Juvederm is used to instantly restore your skin’s smoothness, offering long-lasting results that can smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. If you have smile lines or frown lines, or “parentheses” – the creases that run from your nose to your mouth – you could be a candidate for Juvederm. Juvederm is available in Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus. Contact our Los Angeles med spa today to see which formula is right for you.
