Juvederm is a group of filler gels used by dermatology patients all over the map. It's a temporary filler that can be used on several different parts of the face. The gel is prized for its smooth consistency, making it able to easily replicate regular, natural tissue. Here at A E Skin of Encino, CA, Dr. Alex Eshaghian excels at providing his patients with several kinds of high-quality Juvederm injections.
How Can Juvederm Help My Face and Skin?
To be more specific, Juvederm is a substance known as a hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that the body produces naturally. It serves to enhance skin moisture and provide lubricant to joints. This substance, when injected in gel form, can restore or enhance definition in the face, cheeks, lips, chin, and other areas. The body naturally processes the gel out, so additional injections are needed periodically to maintain the results.
At A E Skin in Encino, CA, we offer three types of Juvederm, known as Voluma, Volbella, and Vollure. Each one is optimized to treat a different section of the face. Voluma is used in the cheeks and midface, Volbella is used in the lips, and Vollure is great for skin wrinkles.
Who Is Juvederm For?
Many people use this gel to enhance their natural features or to lessen the unwanted effects of aging. Those losing definition in their cheeks or jaws due to illness or age may also benefit. Most people who seek out fillers or other augmentations do so because other types of treatment haven't worked in the past. Juvederm has almost no side effects besides those that directly follow the injection. Those on immunosuppressants who are anemic or allergic to lidocaine should inform the provider of this before undergoing Juvederm treatment.
Anyone over the age of 21 who is experiencing unwanted skin sagging or lack of definition is eligible for Juvederm treatment.
