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 JUVÉDERM to be injected, and what needs to be accomplished to determine the appropriate formula and the amount. 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 VOLLURE™ XC can soften medium or deep wrinkles throughout the face (parentheses lines and lines around the nose and mouth).
- JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA™ XC 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™ XC can augment the dimension of your cheeks to relieve age-related volume loss.
Find out more about JUVÉDERM injections at a private consultation. We look forward to meeting you.

"Wonderful staff- Junior always answers phones quickly with a friendly & welcoming voice. Darcy is an excellent MA, who immediately makes you feel at ease. I see Dr. Ishaaya for both sleep medicine and internal med. He is very professional, compassionate, and thoroughly explains all options. He is very easy to reach if I have questions outside of my appt. I appreciate that he is fully integrated w EHR, which streamlines the workflow of everything. He is excellent with follow-up on even the little things, like letting me know that he received my medical records from another physician. I am very happy with my Dr. Ishaaya, and strongly recommend him."- M.B. / ZocDoc / Dec 17, 2021

Who is a candidate for JUVÉDERM?
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.
What to Expect During Juvéderm treatment
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 one day. You need to be careful to avoid touching your face immediately after your JUVÉDERM injections to prevent massaging the filler into other areas.
How Long is Recovery After Juvéderm?
You will 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 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.
Which JUVÉDERM product do I need?
There are several JUVÉDERM products to choose from, each with its own special aesthetic enhancing properties. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC injectable gel helps to fill out your cheeks from age-related loss in volume. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC help to plump up your lips and address fine lines. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE XC and JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC help to smooth out wrinkles and folds around the mouth. During your consultation, you can talk to Dr. Ishaaya about your aesthetic goals and he can help you decide which JUVÉDERM treatment is right for you.
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.
