Juvederm in Los Angeles
Juvederm is a gel made of hyaluronic acid that has a smooth, flowing consistency. Juvederm is placed under the skin to fill lines and depressions creating a natural, youthful look and can be used by both men and women. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that adds volume and provides hydration.
Juvederm can be used to fill the nasolabial folds (the grooves running from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth), the marionette lines (the lines coming down from the corners of the mouth), the hollows under the eyelids, the lips and lines radiating out from them, and many other areas.
Treatment with Juvederm is safe, fast, and effective. Treatment takes approximately 20 - 30 minutes, and results are immediate. Some patients may experience mild swelling and bruising, and allergy testing is not required.
Juvederm comes in two formulations - Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus. Juvederm Ultra Plus is used to correct deeper folds and deformities since it is a more robust product. Juvederm Ultra costs $525 per syringe, and the cost of Juvederm Ultra Plus is $575 per syringe. Dr. Osman will evaluate the depth or your wrinkles and folds prior to treatment to determine which product would provide the best results.
