Juvederm


What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is an injectable gel that is utilized to smooth wrinkles and folds in the face, especially around the nose and mouth. Juvederm is an advanced form of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body, whose purpose is to deliver nutrients, hydrate, and act as a cushioning agent for the skin.


How does Juvederm work?

Juvederm injectable gel is injected into areas of the face where wrinkles and folds occur, thereby adding volume to the skin and restoring a smoother appearance to the face. Patients usually need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing. The results last for approximately six months or longer. Our patients request Juvederm mostly as a filling agent for their cheeks as well as around their nose and mouth. Many of our patients also like the effects Juvederm has when injected into their lips, stating that it maximizes the appearance of fullness and definition.


What to expect

Dr. Golshani will inform you about what to expect following your Juvederm treatment in his Beverly Hills or West Hills office. For example, within the first 24 hours, Dr. Golshani advises patients to avoid rigorous exercise and intense exposure to the sun. Overall, patients are quite content with the results that this filling agent provides.
