You've had a lot to smile about over the years, and the lines on your face show it. Now Pasadena and Inland Empire residents have new reason to smile-those "smile lines" or "parentheses" (wrinkles running from the side of your nose to the corners of your mouth) can be smoothed away successfully using JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel to restore your skin's natural volume.
Better still, JUVÉDERM also can be used to smooth lines on the forehead, around the eyes, or around the lips. Injectable fillers like JUVÉDERM have proven to be effective and much less invasive than surgical skin smoothing options. You will see immediate improvement in areas treated with JUVÉDERM, with most patients needing only one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle reduction, and results lasting up to a year.
Over time, you have no doubt noticed that the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and creases form-but effective treatment doesn't just involve treating the skin directly. Instead, JUVÉDERM addresses the loss of tissue volume beneath the skin to help rebuild your skin's foundation, thereby removing and reducing the creases in your skin.
Now is the perfect time to schedule a JUVÉDERM consultation with Dr. Wang at our Pasadena, and Upland plastic surgery offices, serving Southern California including Pasadena and the Inland Empire. To understand your treatment options, request a consultation online or call Wang Plastic Surgery at (888) 360-6688 today to schedule your appointment.
Since there are so many options for non-surgical facial procedures, including BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane®, and collagen, and given Dr. Wang's considerable expertise with the best innovations for non-invasive facial treatments, it is important that you discuss all of your goals and desires for facial rejuvenation during your consultation. Dr. Wang will be able to determine the best treatment and treatment combinations to achieve your goals with the superior results his patients have come to expect.
What are the common benefits of JUVÉDERM treatments?
JUVÉDERM offers several unique benefits compared to other physician-administered wrinkle treatment options. As a smooth consistency gel, it flows easily into the skin, offering an even, natural look and feel. In addition, each of the specialized ingredients in JUVÉDERM is hypoallergenic. As a result, no allergy skin tests are needed prior to receiving treatment. Also, JUVÉDERM is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler that has been proven safe and effective for persons of color. Available in two formulations, JUVÉDERM can be used as part of an individualized plan to target your goals for wrinkle treatment and correction.
How are JUVÉDERM wrinkle treatments performed?
JUVÉDERM injectable gel is added under your skin to augment or fill wrinkles and folds. Following the injection, Dr. Wang will gently massage each treated area to ensure that the gel is applied uniformly.
How long do JUVÉDERM treatments take?
You can choose to have this quick and easy procedure performed at our convenient Pasadena or Inland Empire area plastic surgery offices. The injection itself usually takes about 15 minutes. Total treatment time will depend on the extent and area of treatment.
What can I expect after JUVÉDERM wrinkle treatment?
As with most injectable fillers, your recovery time will be minimal. During the day following treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and consumption of alcoholic beverages in order to help minimize the risks of temporary redness, swelling, or other discomfort at the treatment sites.
What is JUVÉDERM composed of?
JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel is a "next-generation" skin filler made from hyaluronic acid-a naturally-occurring substance that hydrates skin and replenishes its natural volume. JUVÉDERM is formulated using an exclusive manufacturing process to provide the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any currently available hyaluronic acid filler and provide long-lasting results.
