A non-surgical solution for Orange County
Juvéderm is a long-lasting hyaluronic gel—a formulation of hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in your skin, but depletes as you grow older. Injected under the skin with an ultra-fine needle, these cosmetic dermal fillers instantly lift and add volume to the areas being treated.
- Hyaluronic gels are biocompatible, which means they’re safe and won’t cause your immune system to react
- A single treatment can last up to 18 months
Juvederm can be administered right in the office—using a local anesthetic, if necessary. In a matter of minutes, minor imperfections and signs of aging are softened or eliminated. Acting naturally but not irreversibly, your lips regain their sensuality and your face its smooth curves. Cosmetic dermal fillers are used to:
- Smooth wrinkles and deeper folds
- Enhance lips by plumping or defining the lip line
- Reduce or eliminate the appearance of scars

Juvederm variations for a more customized result
In recent years, Allergan, the manufacturer of Juvederm and Botox Cosmetic has expanded the number of products in the Juvederm family. These related products are all hyaluronic gels, but vary slightly in their consistency, hydrophilic nature (how much water they attract), etc. These new additions to the family are:
Typically used for fine lines like those around the lips. Can be used to discretely add subtle volume.
Typically used for deeper lines like those around the sides of your mouth (“parentheses” lines).
Typically used for cheekbone augmentation (subtle lift and volume around the cheekbone area).
