What is Juvéderm?
From treating lines and wrinkles to creating full, plump lips, Juvéderm injectable dermal filler treatments at Optima Medical Spa provide natural-looking results. Our board-certified physician, Dr. Abraham (Avi) Ishaaya, offers the entire line of Juvéderm injectable dermal fillers at his Los Angeles, CA practice. He will meet with you to get to know more about what you are wanting to achieve with cosmetic injectables. Where you want the Juvéderm to be injected and what needs to be accomplished will determine the appropriate formula and how much. All Juvéderm products are made with synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA) and will boost your natural levels of collagen for supple, healthy skin. We offer:
- Juvéderm XC and Vollure can soften medium or deep wrinkles throughout the face (parentheses lines and lines around the nose and mouth).
- Juvéderm Ultra XC and Volbella can add volume to the upper lip, lower lip, or both while also reducing the look of fine, vertical lines in the lips.
- Juvéderm Voluma can augment the dimension of your cheeks to relieve age-related volume loss.

Can I have this filler?
Men and women (of the appropriate age) both make great candidates for Juvéderm. Fine lines, wrinkles, fat loss in the cheeks, thin lips, and an uneven lip line can all be addressed with this medical-grade product. There may be ingredients in the formula that you might be allergic to (like lidocaine). Dr. Ishaaya will go over your current medications as well to avoid an unnecessary reaction.
Juvéderm injection sessions last about 15 – 30 minutes. This is based on how many areas are being treated. Your skin will be cleaned and injection spots will be selected and marked. To decrease discomfort during the injections, Juvéderm dermal fillers contain lidocaine (a local anesthetic). Following your treatment, you may go back to your normal routine; however, strenuous activity, such as exercise, should be skipped for at least a day. You need to be careful to not touch your face immediately after your Juvéderm injections to prevent massaging the filler into other areas.
You see a noticeable enhancement immediately after your Juvéderm injection, but you may also develop some mild swelling or bruising in the first 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm dermal fillers can last up to a year. Some patients do notice that their improvements last more than a year after several retreatment injections. Talk to Dr. Ishaaya about when to schedule a touch-up or full session at Optima Medical Spa to keep your results looking fresh.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long do results last?
Your results from a Juvéderm treatment can last up to two years. This can vary, depending on what filler is used and the injection site(s). The appearance of your results will depend on how fast your body breaks down the Juvéderm.
What is the difference between a dermal filler and a wrinkle relaxer?
Fillers and relaxers both improve your skin, but each formula does it in different ways. Wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, stop the muscles where it is injected to smooth the lines. A filler is a gel that is injected into the skin to create a fuller look, a plumper lip, and a definition in the cheeks.
What results can I expect?
You may need to wait a few days to see the complete results of your Juvéderm injections. Generally, it only takes one session to achieve your desired outcome. However, you can make a follow-up appointment if you would like to improve your results.
