Welcome to my blog! My goal here is to get more personal - and simply share stuff with my friends, family, and patients! I want to share compelling and what I consider interesting things that get you thinking, enjoying, talking, learning and laughing. You can expect some posts on the latest advances in cosmetic surgery and laser vision correction (although it seems like there’ll be a fair amount of music-related posts - they’re too much fun to make!) I also expect that we’ll have more contests and free stuff, special events and even very special guests! See ya later!

Juvéderm – The Next Generation in Beauty

Newport Beach, CA, October 19, 2006 Newport Beach, CA – Richard A. Weiss, M.D., a leading expert in cosmetic facial surgery and procedures in Orange County, is pleased to announce the next generation in beauty – Juvéderm.

Because of his expertise in facial aesthetics, Dr. Weiss is one of a select group of physicians to participate in the Juvéderm Experience Trial, in advance of national product availability in January 2007.

Juvéderm gel is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that, because of advanced manufacturing methods, provides a smooth, soft, long-lasting correction of facial wrinkles and folds.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance which is naturally present in the dermis and maintains the hydration of tissues, becoming absorbed slowly over time. Injection of Juvéderm is a replacement source of hyaluronic acid, which disappears gradually with age. Juvéderm offers the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid available.

Dr Weiss has been the Senior Instructor for an official Botox instruction course at the American Academy of Ophthalmology for the past 3 years and is on the National Education Faculty for Botox Cosmetic.
