Popular Juvederm Uses in Beverly Hills

Juvederm in Beverly Hills

Juvederm was the first dermal filler to receive FDA approval back in June 2006 and is the best selling injectable filler on the market with several versions to choose from depending on your age and the severity of your facial wrinkles. That is why it is so popular with patients in Beverly Hills and across the United States. We use all formulations of Juvederm in our practice here in Beverly Hills: Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, and Voluma.

Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus

There are a few types of Juvederm available. The original, named Juvederm Ultra, is commonly referred to as Juvederm. It is an effective product for improving lines and wrinkles on the face in the nasolabial folds and temples. Juvederm Ultra is composed of hyaluronic acid and cross-linked sugar chains. The results of this hyaluronic acid filler can last up to 6 months.

For facial volumizing or deeper wrinkles, you might want to try the thicker form of Juvederm called Juvederm Ultra Plus. Juvederm Ultra produces great results for lip augmentation and cheeks; Ultra Plus works well for more pronounced wrinkles. An experienced certified Beverly Hills injection specialist can help you decide which type is right for you. Our world-renowned doctors are highly experienced and skilled and provide among the best Juvederm Beverly Hills has to offer.

Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus benefits include the following:

  • They are nonsurgical and can be injected in a short office visit.
  • They are part of the most widely used family of fillers prescribed in the U.S.
  • They have an immediate, natural-looking effect that can last for 6-9 months.
  • Juvederm's Hylacross™ technology makes Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus the only smooth-consistency gels of their kind.

Juvederm Voluma

Juvederm Voluma in Beverly Hills

Allergan, the pharmaceutical company that makes Juvederm, has recently released a new version called Juvederm Voluma. It is another hyaluronic acid gel that has proven to be excellent for restoring volume to the cheeks while simultaneously lifting the lower face. It is a thicker version of Juvederm that was developed to temporarily replace facial tissue volume which has been lost over time.

Juvederm Voluma is also made from hyaluronic acid and cross-linked sugar chains. However, chains in Juvederm Voluma are shorter, which lowers its weight so that it has more lift. The Vycross™ technology makes the particles oval shaped and more uniform. The substance is easier to inject, and the extra cross-linking gives Voluma longer-lasting results -- up to 2 years, which is longer than any other injectable filler on the market.

Juvederm Voluma benefits include the following.

  • It provides instantaneous results that can last for two years.
  • It is nonsurgical and can be injected in a short office visit.
  • It is part of the most widely used family of fillers prescribed in the U.S.
  • Vycross™ technology makes Voluma molecules more uniform and easier to inject.

Juvederm XC Versions

The entire family of Juvederm products is now available in an XC version that contains lidocaine to reduce discomfort during the injection. Ask our Beverly Hills facial aesthetics professionals if Juvederm Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC or Voluma XC is right for you.

New protocols for office visits View Update

New protocols for office visits

May 12th, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have instituted many changes to your normal office visit. These changes have been introduced to protect everyone’s health and safety during your visit. All of our staff have been tested for COVID-19 and are negative. They are being monitored daily as well and will be practicing safety guidelines.

  1. If you are sick, do not come to the office. Call our front desk and we will reschedule your appointment promptly once you’re healthy again.
  2. Please wear a mask to your appointment.
  3. Do not bring someone else with you to your appointment. They will not be able to enter the office and wait for you. The only exceptions are for those who require medical assistance or translation assistance. Additionally, please do not bring any pets to the office with you.
  4. The day before your appointment, as in the past, you will be called to confirm your appointment. During that call you will be asked if you have any symptoms like fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste. You will also be asked if you have been recently exposed to COVID-19 or have been traveling on a commercial airplane within the last 2 weeks.
  5. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office from your car. A staff member will either tell you to come up to the office at that time or will ask you to wait in your car until they text you to come up. Before entering the front door of the office, you will be met by a staff member who will take your temperature with a no-touch forehead thermometer to be sure you don’t have a fever. They will again ask you if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. You will be given a mask if you don’t have one, as well as hand sanitizer since you touched the doorknob to enter the office. We will stagger appointments so that on the day of your treatment, you will not interact with any other patients.
  6. You will be taken directly to an exam room which has been cleaned and disinfected just prior to your arrival. There are also air filtration machines installed in each exam room which sterilize the air.
  7. Our medical assistants, who will be wearing N95 masks and protective eye shields, will take your history and prepare you for your visit. You will be asked to sign a new COVID-19 consent form in addition to any of the usual consent forms you may be used to.
  8. After your treatment, you will check out while in the exam room and any products you purchase will be brought to you. If you give us your credit card information the day before your appointment, we can handle the checkout without physically touching your card.
  9. Please try to make your follow up appointments during your office visit. With new scheduling changes and staggered appointments, last minute appointments may be difficult to schedule.
