Non-Surgical Dermal Filler in San Francisco
As you get older, your face goes through several changes. The added years of sun damage, gravity and heredity cause your skin to lose collagen and elasticity, causing a loss of facial volume, depressions in the skin and wrinkles. Juvéderm is a popular hyaluronic acid based dermal filler used to fill in these areas beneath the skin to restore a youthful look. At Wave Plastic Surgery in LA, you can be treated with Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC to achieve that naturally younger look you remember from years before.
How Does Juvéderm Work?
Juvéderm uses a hyaluronic acid-based gel to fill in the area beneath the skin and restore volume. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that is naturally occurring in your body, so it is completely safe for your skin. In your skin, HA acts as a sponge, absorbing water and moisturizing your skin from the inside-out keeping it looking young and healthy. Over time, your skin begins to lose hyaluronic acid due to external factors such as sunlight and environmental damage.
By injecting hyaluronic acid back into the skin with Juvéderm, we are able to treat common signs of aging such as:
- Loss of facial volume
- Moderate to severe lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth
- Nasolabial folds (Parentheses)
- Thin lips (non-surgical lip augmentation)
During your consultation, we will carefully go over your Juvéderm treatment so we are best able to provide you with your desired look. Feel free to bring an older picture of yourself so we may have a better idea of what look you are aiming for.
Because the results of Juvéderm are immediate, you will be able to see the results in your face as each injection is administered by your San Francisco plastic surgeon. This way, we will be able to work together to achieve your optimal results.
How Long Will it Take to Recover from Juvéderm?
Juvéderm treatments require no recovery time. You may experience some slight discomfort or redness, but these should pass over the next day or two. It is important to avoid excessive sun exposure and wear sunscreen when you go out – especially if you’re taking a trip to the beach.
Results from your Juvéderm Ultra Plus treatment can last for up to a full year! It is the first and only of its kind to be approved by the FDA to provide results that last this long.
Once you feel the results begin to fade, you are more than welcome to return for touch-up treatments. For the best overall results, many of our patients choose to supplement their filler with different non-surgical treatments such as Botox.
