What JUVÉDERM?

JUVÉDERM can replenish lost facial volume. Faces often lack volume for a number of reasons, but weight loss and age are commonly to blame. These injectable fillers work by injecting the dermal filler beneath the skin to fill in the sunken or hollowed areas. JUVÉDERM is an excellent, nonsurgical alternative for San Francisco, CA men and women wanting to smooth fine lines, elevate sagging skin, and/or conceal wrinkles to create a younger-looking face. Alone or in combination with our other aesthetic services, the JUVÉDERM family of dermal fillers will temporarily provide results without the need for surgery. Our board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Charles K. Lee, will get to know you better in a consultation. After selecting which JUVÉDERM product to use, Dr. Lee will implement the fillers on the same day. We invite you to visit L Plastic Surgery to discover how you can benefit from injectable fillers.

Do I Need JUVÉDERM?

The best candidates for dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM would be anyone interested in minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without undergoing a surgical facelift. In most situations, those who have recently lost significant amounts of weight have areas on their face that are sunken and shapeless. These attributes make them good candidates for injectable fillers. JUVÉDERM is also a great option for those who are not comfortable with the scars that can occur following a surgical facelift.

Dr. Lee's Injection Technique

Before your injections, Dr. Lee will meet with you to gain insight into your desired results, and decide which product will best deliver them. To begin the actual injections, Dr. Lee will administer a topical anesthetic to minimize the discomfort of the injections. Dr. Lee will slowly and meticulously inject your JUVÉDERM through a very fine needle. Keeping the desired result in mind, he may implement a portion of a syringe or more.

What to Expect

This procedure can be completed in our office quickly and with very few risks. Because of the anesthetic formulated within the product, the injections should not be uncomfortable. You may see some bruising and swelling immediately after, but these symptoms should resolve themselves quickly. Results can last from three months to a year based on the type of filler used and the area of injection. Touch-ups may be needed to maintain results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does JUVÉDERM cost?
Your injectable filler treatment fees will vary depending on the brand selected and the amount injected. In your initial consultation, Dr. Lee will create a customized treatment plan that matches your needs and goals, which will include an estimated fee schedule.

How do I know which injectable filler is right for me?
Dr. Lee will take out the guesswork for you. He will make recommendations based on many years of experience in aesthetic injections. He will take your goals into consideration before suggesting the filler or fillers that will deliver better results. We also want you to have results that you love when you look in the mirror.

What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM?
A wrinkle relaxer, such as BOTOX, addresses dynamic wrinkles (particularly on the brow and near the eyes) by relaxing the movement of facial muscles. Fillers like JUVÉDERM increase volume to fill in lines, wrinkles, and depressions in the skin (like acne scars).

What areas of my face can be treated with JUVÉDERM????????
Dermal fillers can address signs of aging throughout your face by adding volume or smoothing lines. Fillers can be used on parentheses, marionette, and fine lines around your mouth and nose. They can also add volume to your cheeks and lips.
