What is Juvéderm®?

Like a band member in the Rose Parade, time marches on year after year, robbing your face of its firm, supple skin and allowing creases and furrows to take hold. Every year after you turn 20, your body creates one percent less collagen, so at 50 you’re producing 30 percent less collagen than in your younger days. And since collagen provides your skin’s underlying support system, it’s no wonder things start to sag and droop. Gravity has its way, too, pulling everything downward, and eventually weakening the muscles that keep your facial tissues from sagging. And in L.A., the sun and environment play a role, damaging our skin and breaking down underlying collagen and elastin.

But you don’t have to take all this lying down! You can fight the effects of facial aging with dermal fillers expertly injected by the team at L.A. Vein Center. Juvéderm® is one of our most popular filler lines, with three different options to treat different areas of the face. Contact our Los Angeles office today to schedule your appointment

What is a dermal filler?

Injectables basically employ two methods for filling wrinkles, creases, and areas with volume loss. Certain wrinkles such as crow’s feet develop from years of repeated muscle contractions when we perform certain behaviors like squinting. Neuromodulators such as Botox and Xeomin target those wrinkles, temporarily paralyzing them. When the muscle doesn’t contract, the wrinkle above it doesn’t form.

Dermal fillers are more true to their name, basically filling the wrinkle from beneath. Dermal fillers push the depressed skin back upward in the injection area.  

What is Juvéderm® made of?

Juvéderm®is made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that is responsible for keeping the skin plump, firm, and hydrated. It does this by binding with water molecules.


What Our Patients Are Saying:

“Dr. Lee and all of her staff are the best. I have been a patient for a couple of years and the results I have gotten with Dr Lee are superior than anywhere else I have gone before. She is now stuck with me forever. My experience with and her team has been wonderful. She takes the time to explain everything in detail and gives me clear guidance to my choices. She then asks me what I would like to do. She does not push or persuade me in one direction. Quite the opposite, her honesty and medical advice has always gotten me the results I wanted. I am so happy to have her as one of my doctors.” -Lucy R.


Three formulations for different issues

Juvéderm® is one of the world’s most popular injectables because it lifts, smoothes, and plumps the skin, making wrinkles and lines disappear or become far less visible. At L.A. Vein Center, we offer three different Juvéderm® options.

  • Juvéderm® Voluma XC

Experts call it “age-related midface volume loss.” You call it sagging cheeks. Over time as you lose the collagen to support your skin and as your underlying muscles weaken, your cheeks flatten. Juvéderm® Voluma XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area. Plump cheeks are a tenet of a younger look.

  • Juvéderm® XC

Parentheses are good when noting an aside in a conversation in a novel, but they’re no good on your face. As the skin loses elasticity and moisture, some people form relatively deep parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. These are also referred to as nasolabial folds. You hear about all sorts of “anti-aging” serums and creams, but they only moisturize the skin’s surface. Juvéderm® XC adds volume beneath the skin to smooth these lines and folds.

  • Juvéderm® Ultra XC

You may not think about your lips with facial aging, but our lips thin as we get older, losing the same support as our skin. Other women have never been happy with the fullness of their lips. Juvéderm® Ultra XC provides or returns fullness and fills the vertical wrinkles that form on our lips.
