Using the naturally occurring substance hyaluronic acid, Juvederm delivers long-lasting results without requiring surgical treatment. HA dermal fillers create a bright, vibrant appearance in the skin and restored volume. Juvederm is also a go-to treatment for anti-aging, as it minimizes the overall appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This dermal filler treatment is reputable for being an extremely safe and effective non-surgical option. Each patient will require a different number of injections based on their target areas, severity of skin conditions, and desired results.
What Is Hyaluronic Acid, and How Is It Beneficial?
You may have used skin care products with hyaluronic acid before. This powerful substance has become increasingly popular as a skincare ingredient within the last few years. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body, and acts as a lubricant for the skin, eyes, and joint fluid. It attracts and binds to water molecules, so when it is placed underneath the skin, it gives a boost of volume and hydration.(2) Hyaluronic acid is also hugely beneficial for the body, as it employs several vital properties that help with anti-aging, reverse of sun damage, reduced scarring, and even wound healing. Shown to be a powerful method of acne treatment, hyaluronic acid injections can significantly reduce the appearance of acne scarring. (3)

Benefits of Juvederm
The consistency of Juvéderm creates natural-looking contours and definition to the face, while flawlessly diminishing fine lines, creases, and skin imperfections. The hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm is biocompatible just like the kind that our bodies naturally produce. However, the HA in these fillers is engineered to be longer lasting, and to have the necessary consistency to treat specific concerns, making it a versatile injectable that lets patients customize their treatments. Juvéderm is also a great choice for those with busy schedules, as well as patients who are looking for a non-surgical solution. Juvéderm doesn’t require any downtime, which means you are able to resume normal activities immediately after treatment. To top it off, Juvéderm results are instant, appearing right after injections are applied. Juvéderm is proven to be effective, providing patients with a low-risk and long-lasting reward.
An ideal candidate for Juvéderm is in good health, has mild to severe lines and wrinkles, or is seeking a simple, non-invasive treatment to offer skin a noticeable lift. Many patients begin treatment in their early 20’s to address early signs of age and keep skin looking vibrant and youthful. In addition, the treatment is suitable for all skin types and tones. It may not be best for patients with severe skin laxity, as Juvederm cannot adequately reverse this type of skin condition. Shine Cosmetic Surgery offers other procedures such as the face lift that can better address severe laxity. If you’re not sure whether you’re the right candidate for the treatment, our team can answer any questions you may have and determine your candidacy during an initial consultation.
A personal consultation is the very first step in your Juvederm journey.

During the personal consultation, we will establish a personalized treatment plan that’s right for you. You will also learn the specific type of Juvederm filler that will best achieve your desired results.

Preparing for Juvederm Treatment
While Juvederm is a minimally invasive procedure, there are still a couple of important tips to prepare. Before treatment, it is recommended to protect your skin from any irritation by avoiding sun exposure and tanning, and using gentle skincare products the week before your appointment. On the day of your treatment, you should avoid wearing makeup in the areas to be treated, since we will need to cleanse and disinfect the area before injecting.
We may also ask you to temporarily avoid taking blood-thinning medications in order to reduce your risk of bleeding or bruising. It’s also best to avoid drinking alcoholic beverages 24-48 hours before the treatment, as alcohol dehydrates the skin and impacts your blood’s ability to clot.
Your expert injector will cleanse the skin and check to make sure there are no active skin irritations that could be affected by injections. Next, you will receive a topical numbing cream that will ensure enhanced comfort during each of the injections.
Once the skin is numb, your injector will apply the dermal filler under the skin with a thin needle. Once filler is applied to the target areas, it instantly lifts the skin, initiating noticeable results. Your injector will carefully mold the treated areas to ensure that the desired effect is achieved.
Once your injection session is complete, you will see an immediate difference, however, it will take a few days for your final results to become visible. Post-treatment, you’re likely to see increased volume in the cheeks and midface, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin texture, fuller lips, and an overall youthful, vibrant appearance in your skin. After you leave the appointment, you can return to your normal daily life with no downtime required.
After treatment, it’s essential that you protect the injection sites from irritation. You can avoid potential irritation by staying away from harsh skincare products, exfoliating treatments, and direct sun exposure for about one week post-treatment. Be conscious not to overly touch, rub, or press on your skin for at least 48 hours. This ensures that the filler is able to properly settle in your skin.
Get ready to see brighter, smoother, and more youthful skin! You’ll be able to see the incredible results right after injections are applied, which should stay fresh for the next six months to two years depending on your customized treatment. We make receiving touch-up injections quick and easy, so whenever additional treatments are needed, don’t hesitate to contact us!
Corresponding & Complementary Procedures
Laser Skin Tightening
Another quick and painless treatment, Laser Skin Tightening is a great way to improve the skin’s appearance and promote anti-aging. This non-invasive treatment uses laser energy to stimulate the production of collagen for firmer, smoother skin. In addition, it can be applied to most areas of the body.
The Hydrafacial treatment simultaneously cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes skin. It’s an effective way to “detox” your skin, as it used vortex technology to clear debris from pores while also removing dead and damaged skin cells. During the procedure, the skin is also infused with a serum containing vitamins, and antioxidants to give skin a glowing, radiant appearance.
The liquid facelift is a combination of injectable treatments, so that patients can acheive comprehensive rejuvenation without surgery. The team at Shine Cosmetic Surgery will design a customized plan that best fits your needs. Dermal fillers and neuromodulators like Botox are used to target lines and wrinkles, contour specific areas, replace lost volume, and promote collagen production.
How Much Does Juvederm Cost in West Covina?
The cost of Juvederm varies based on your unique and personalized treatment, specifically the the number of injections you receive, and the amount of filler used during the procedure. During your personal consultation, our team will provide you with an accurate estimate of your treatment’s cost, as well as discuss your individual needs and goals.
Are there side effects of Juvéderm?
Juvéderm’s active ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance within our skin. As a result, there are little to no risk of allergics reaction from treatment. However, you may see some mild redness, swelling, or soreness at the injection sites which should subside a day after your treatment. Let your injector know if you have an allergy to lidocaine, since the line of Juvéderm XC products contains small amounts of lidocaine to enhance patient comfort.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
One of the best perks of Juvederm is that it is virtually painless. While face injections may sound intimidating at first, Juvederm patients receive powerful numbing cream that prevents pain from occurring. Juvederm also contains lidocaine which helps to ease any discomfort.
How long does do filler injection sessions take?
Dermal fillers can be injected in as little as fifteen minutes, although the length of time the appointment will take depends on the number of injections you’re receiving.
How long does Juvéderm last?
Juvederm fillers are absorbed into the patient’s body over time, so touch-ups are typically needed to maintain optimal results. Depending on the specific formula of Juvéderm being used, the areas being treated, results can last from a few months up to a year.
