Below are some additional frequently asked questions about our Los Angeles Juvederm services.
Q: What is Juvederm?
Juvederm Los Angeles is a FDA approved injectable cosmetic filler that is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that naturally occurs in the human body which helps to hydrate and add volume to the skin. In addition to its use as an aesthetic treatment, hyaluronic acid has also been used for more than 20 years for injection into arthritic joints to aid movement, as well as for eye surgeries and wound repair..
Unlike previously available HA fillers, results with Juvederm can last up to one year. Juvederm works to restore volume, reduce sagging and smooth visible wrinkles in the face.
Q: What kind of results does Los Angeles Juvederm offer?
Juvederm is an injectable gel that adds volume and firmness to the face and reduces fine lines and wrinkles for up to one year after treatment. Allergan’s manufacturing process gives the gel a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, which means long-lasting results. The smooth consistency of the gel flows easily into the skin and provides a natural-looking result and feel. Other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers currently on the market are made of granular consistency gels.
Q: Can any skin tone or type use Juvederm?
Sunset’s Los Angeles Juvederm services are an effective treatment for any skin type or skin tone. Studies with JUVÉDERM as reported by Allergan showed no increased risk of hyperpigmentation or hypertrophic scarring in patients of any color.
Q: Should I avoid anything after getting a Juvederm treatment?
You should avoid the following for at least 24 hours after treatment:
– Strenuous exercise
– Consumption of alcoholic beverages
– Extended exposure to sun or heat
Exposure to any of the above may cause temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the injection sites. If there is swelling, an ice pack over the swollen area can help. Be sure to report any redness and/or visible swelling that lasts for more than a few days, or any other symptoms that cause you concern, to your doctor immediately.
