Have you ever wondered how celebrities who are aging gracefully without plastic surgery manage to still look youthful and beautiful? Chances are that dermal fillers are a regular part of their beauty routine! Juvéderm dermal fillers are an FDA-approved, non-surgical, injectable treatment that can smooth away deep wrinkles, brighten eyes, and provide natural-looking lip augmentation. When administered by an expert, hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can even be an alternative to plastic surgery for cosmetic improvement such as cheekbone contouring. At Before-N-After, our dermal filler specialists are thrilled to offer a full range of Juvéderm dermal filler procedures for patients in North County San Diego.

Benefits: What can Juvéderm Treat?
Juvéderm offers five different dermal fillers in their collection made by Allergan, and each can be used to target specific signs of facial aging. During your dermal filler consultation, your anti-aging specialist will ask you about your personal goals and frustrations, then customize treatment to suit your unique needs. Juvéderm fillers address three main areas or signs of aging:
Over time, a loss of collagen can make cheeks appear flatter or hollowed. This not only reduces the definition of facial contours, but can also take away from structural support of facial tissues, causing them to migrate downward. With Juvéderm Voluma®, we can restore contours in the mid-face and jawline to reduce the appearance of jowls and create an overall more youthful look.
Fine lines and wrinkles on the face are one of the first signs of aging, and something our patients commonly wish to address. Juvederm XC® and Vollure® are injectable gels that can be used to “fill” moderate to severe facial wrinkles and creases, including smile lines (nasolabial folds), marionette lines (parentheses), crow’s feet, and more.
Whether you were born with naturally thin lips or your once-full lips have lost volume over time due to a loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid, we can help plump your pout with Juvéderm. Juvéderm Volbella XC can be used to perform lip augmentation that lasts for up to a year. We can also use dermal fillers to address vertical lip lines that form around the mouth, commonly known as “lipstick lines.”
How Do Juvéderm Dermal Fillers Work?
Juvéderm dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid (HA) formulas. HA occurs naturally in the body, but your natural levels of HA can become depleted by aging, genetics, or stress. HA is a natural hydrator that plumps and smooths skin, so a lack of natural HA can result in facial wrinkles and a loss of facial volume and elasticity. Juvéderm restores HA and also works to increase collagen production to rejuvenate, refresh, or recontour.
Preparing for Your Appointment
Dermal filler injections are typically a quick treatment and minimal prep is required before your appointment. You can minimize your chances of swelling and bruising by avoiding alcohol and blood-thinning medications like ibuprofen in the days leading up to your injections.
What to Expect After Juvéderm Treatment
You may experience some common side effects such as swelling, bruising, redness, or temporary numbness at the injection site after dermal fillers, and your recovery will vary based on your unique experience and the area being treated.2 No downtime is required after treatment with Juvéderm: patients typically get back to their regular day-to-day right after treatment.
Your Juvéderm Treatment
First we’ll cleanse the treatment area. Juvéderm formulas contain an anesthetic ingredient, lidocaine, to prevent discomfort; an additional numbing cream can also be applied to your skin depending on the type of injection and your level of sensitivity. Dermal filler injection treatments usually take between 10 and 30 minutes depending on the type of treatment.
