What Is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is a leading collection of dermal fillers designed to correct poor facial volume and moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. The main ingredient in JUVÉDERM® is a natural substance known as hyaluronic acid that adds volume to the cheeks, lips, and other areas of the face.
At his Beverly Hills practice, Dr. Chiu is always creating personalized treatment plans, ensuring that every patient’s cosmetic goals are fully accomplished. JUVÉDERM® treatment is specifically tailored to a patient’s concerns, providing youthful and natural-looking results.
What Can JUVÉDERM® Do?
Plump up Lips
Patients with thin lips can add volume to their lips with JUVÉDERM® fillers. JUVÉDERM® offers a unique line of hyaluronic fillers that develop a softer, more luscious, and naturally full appearance in the lips.
Smooth and Soften Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles near the nose and vertical lines around the mouth can be smoothed out with JUVÉDERM® Ultra, Ultra Plus, Ultra XC, and Ultra Plus XC.
Wrinkles can show up in the form of smile lines, smoker lines, and other unflattering creases. JUVÉDERM® fillers offer unique smooth gel technology that will fill out these areas while simultaneously hydrating and softening the skin.
Add Volume to the Cheeks
Facial fat in specific areas is a key characteristic of a youthful face. Men and women can develop a haggard appearance when a loss of this facial volume continues. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC can be injected underneath facial tissue to lift sagging skin and restore volume in the cheekbone area.
