San Francisco patients longing for smoother, younger-looking skin often undergo Juvederm treatments, advanced anti-aging wrinkle filler. Juvederm is an FDA-approved, gel-based substance, also known as hyaluronic acid (HA). By injecting Juvederm into the skin, Dr. Beck helps patients restore youthful facial appearance.
Juvederm is available in three formulas, including: Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus. We also offer Juvederm Voluma XC for volume loss in the cheeks and mid-face. Each formula varies in intensity and dosage levels, which allow Dr. Beck to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. In addition to adding volume and restoring youthful facial appearance, Juvederm hydrates the skin, thus making the results appear natural.
Who is a candidate for Juvederm in San Francisco?
Juvederm is the best option for patients who want to fill in facial wrinkles, scars and facial folds created as a result of aging. Because Juvederm is a naturally occurring substance, it rarely leads to any allergic reactions and/or complications.
How is Juvederm procedure performed?
Juvederm is injected into the dense inner layer of the skin that is composed of a complex network of nerves and blood vessels. During the procedure, Dr. Beck uses fine needles to minimize any discomfort and inject the gel into previously identified problem areas of the face, which vary from one patient to another.
Juvederm is administered within 15 to 20 minutes. Results are immediate and typically last anywhere from six to 12 months. Some Juvederm San Jose /San Mateo patients may experience minor swelling and/or bruising at the injection sites for one to two days. Juvederm is a temporary facial enhancement procedure and often requires follow up injections.
Most San Mateo / San Francisco plastic surgery patients are thrilled with the results of this advanced anti-aging treatment and wish to maintain their new, youthful facial appearance. This can be achieved through a number of techniques and advanced San Francisco cosmetic enhancements, including Botox in San Jose and laser skin resurfacing. Patients looking for permanent results should ask Dr. Beck about surgical procedures, including San Mateo facelift, which is often used in conjunction with Latisse, a revolutionary new treatment that promotes the growth of eyelashes.
