What is Juvederm?

Top of page

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.

What is Juvederm used for?

Top of page

Whether your healthcare professional recommends Juvederm Ultra or Juvederm Ultra Plus, the dermal filler is used as an injection into the mid and deep dermis to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.

Is Juvederm offered in different levels?

Top of page

Juvederm is an injectable gel gel, and our Los Angeles Juvederm treatments are available in two formulations to meet your individual needs: Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus. Juvederm Ultra offers volumizing and contouring for wrinkles and folds. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a more robust formula for correcting deep facial wrinkles and folds.

How is Juvederm different from other fillers?

Top of page

Juvederm is the only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can last up to one year. Currently, all other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are granular in texture, while Juvederm is made of a smooth consistency that allows it to restore smoothness to the skin for a more natural look and feel. Hyaluronic acid is created naturally in all mammals, helping to hydrate and add volume to the skin. It is also injected into arthritic joints to help ease movement.

Is Juvederm injection painful?

Top of page

Juvederm injections may cause discomfort to some patients. Made of hyaluronic acid, Juvederm is made of a smooth consistency gel that allows it to be injected into the mid to deep dermis with a fine needle to reduce any discomfort. You can also ask your physician to use a numbing anesthetic at the treatment area to further minimize discomfort to your face.

How long does it take to administer Juvederm?

Top of page

While our Los Angeles Juvederm injection appointments generally last about 15 minutes, you should plan on consulting time with your doctor before your Juvederm treatment. Some people require numbing cream, so plan an extra 30-60 minutes for that to take effect prior to your injection.

How long does Juvederm last?

Top of page

While Juvederm is FDA approved to last for one year, many patients may need touch-up or repeat injections to maintain optimum effects. Consult with your physician if you are unsure of the lasting effects of your Juvederm treatment.

Are there Juvederm side effects?

Top of page

Juvederm is FDA approved and any possible side effects are typically short in duration, lasting one week or less. Most side effects are mild to moderate, including facial redness, pain or tenderness, swelling, bruising, itching, firmness, lumps/bumps and discoloration at the injection site. As with all other skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection. Ask your doctor if you have questions about Juvederm side effects.

Can Juvederm be used on all skin tones?

Top of page

Juvederm injectable dermal filler is made of hyaluronic acid, proven to be safe for all skin types and skin tones. Studies have shown no increased risk of hyperpigmentation or hypertrophic scarring in patients of color or who have a deeper pigment.

We have been going to Dr Sarshad & his staff at Cosmetique since 2005. We have used them for Botox, laser hair removal, B-12 IV's and wellness injections, IPL facials and many other things. The staff is fabulous, courteous, kind, friendly and very helpful.

Got mold removed - no pain, much gain - it seriously didn’t hurt, took 30 seconds and you can’t tell it was ever there. Great job and many thanks. Highly recommend!

I have been going to Dr. Sarshad at Cosmetique Esthetics for awhile now and have experienced the utmost level of professionalism, care and 100% satisfaction in the myriad of services I have received. Rose is exceptionally caring and kind and Dr. Sarshad takes his time and is so comforting so I never have bruises from injections. Ada, the receptionist, always greets me with a smile and asks if I would like something to drink while waiting for a few minutes. I have now lost 11 lbs from the MJ shot and am exceedingly pleased with the excellent results. I have 4lbs to go and then maintenance. Never felt better in my life. Thank you all for helping me achieve the results I wanted to bc my best new self. I appreciate the extra mile you have gone in all my care, you are the absolute best in your field. Overjoyed I have found you!

Absolutely love this place! The staff is wonderful and friendly. I had several balding spots on my head so I went to Cosmetique for help. The doctor started me off with prp injections for the scalp and believe me, that stuff works!!! My bald spots are almost gone and my hair feels thicket than ever. I couldn’t have had the confidence I have now if it wasn’t for Dr Sharshad and his knowledgeable staff. Plus they will work with you to get you the best bang for your buck! Definitely a must go place for me. I highly recommend it.
