Juvederm in Los Angeles

Q: What is it?

Juvederm Injections Beverly HillsDr. Kagan: Juvéderm® is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural complex sugar that contributes to the volume and elasticity of the skin and is found naturally in all living organisms. The hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm® is created during an advanced manufacturing process and is specially formulated as a smooth and malleable gel to ensure the most natural looking results possible.

Q: How does it work?

Juvederm Kagan Institute Los AngelesDr. Kagan: Your skin naturally produces hyaluronic acid, a sugar-based compound responsible for delivering and maintaining moisture and nutrient levels in skin cells, and which creates the appearance of volume and smoothness in young, supple skin. Unfortunately, with the progression of time, your skin's ability to manufacture its own hyaluronic acid diminishes. Juvéderm® is a smooth gel that is made of cross-linked hyaluronic acid particles. When injected into fine lines, wrinkles, furrows, or sunken areas of the face, Juvéderm® replenishes the hyaluronic acid that has been absorbed into your body over time, helping you achieve a more youthful appearance.

Q: What are the best areas of the face for treatment?

Fine Lines, Wrinkles, Furrows | Juvederm Los Angeles CA Kagan InstituteDr. Kagan: Juvéderm® filler may be a good option for patients who wish to fill in deep folds or creases in the face, or who would like to augment their lips. Juvéderm® is also effective on fine lines around the eyes. Excellent for lips, cheeks/chin enhancement, nasolabial folds, frown lines, depressions around eyes.

Q: What happens during the treatment process?

Dr. Kagan: Juvéderm® filler treatment is quite simple and is similar to other dermal fillers/ wrinkle reducers. It is injected into the area of the wrinkles and creases with minimal discomfort. Its effects are immediate and long-lasting, though some patients may wish to combine Juvéderm® filler with BOTOX treatment for an even more dramatic effect.

Q: How long do Juvederm results last?

Dr. Kagan: The average patient enjoys the results of a Juvéderm® treatment for six, nine months, though some patients have had results last for as long as a year.
