What are Los Angeles Juvederm Treatments?

February 11th, 2010 | Posted in: Juvederm Treatments |

Los Angeles Juvederm treatments are an exciting new option in the fight against aging. Juvederm is a cosmetic filler that can be injected under the skin to reduce the wrinkles and folds which develop in the skin as the skin ages. Juvederm is hyaluronic acid and has been approved by the FDA since 2006.

Cosmetic surgeons have successfully used Juvederm Los Angeles treatments in a variety of ways. These treatments can plump up lips. Los Angeles Juvederm treatments are considered especially effective for smile lines. Some surgeons also use the filler to make scars less visible.

Like many subdermal fillers, the effects of Los Angeles Juvederm treatments are not permanent, so patients do not have to worry about being stuck with a specific look forever. In most cases, to upkeep a specific look, patients will need to return for Los Angeles Juvederm treatments every six to nine months. However, patients have found that Juvederm tends to last longer than other filler injections, partly because Juvederm is cross-linked, which makes the product form into a gel. This, in turn, makes the product last longer once it has been injected under the skin.
