Los Angeles Juvederm Injections
Cosmetic Dermatology Services You Can Trust
Two versions of Los Angeles Juvederm Injectables exist, both of which may be used to restore facial volume and eliminate a “sunken” appearance. For example, if Juvederm is applied to the mid-cheek area, the face no longer appears sunken, but instead enjoys a slight lift that eradicates naso-labial folds, or folds between the nose and the mouth. Juvederm may also be used to fill lines, wrinkles, hollow areas where facial scars persist.
This wrinkle filler has become the#1 lip augmentation choice among dermatologists. The softest substance to inject into the lip line, Juvederm is easily molded to produce the desired effect. Patients who have undergone lip augmentation with other fillers report our Los Angeles Juvederm Treatments feel as though nothing was ever injected.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Juvederm Work? Hyaluronic acid works as a hydrating agent addition to functioning as a binder for collagen and elastin. It is injected into needed areas with a small, fine needle. Because hyaluronic acid is combined with an anesthetic, the treatment is essentially pain-free. Our physician quality Juvederm injections are in-office procedures that take 15 to 20 minutes and produce immediate results.
How Long Does Juvederm Last? Los Anegles Juvederm Injections last anywhere from six to 12 months, with each patient reacting to the wrinkle filler differently. Factors such as degree of movement and sun exposure contribute to how long the filler lasts or not.
Are There Side Effects? Side effects from our Los Angeles Juvederm are mild and usually include injection site bruising. We emphasize the importance of taking Arnica pills starting three days prior to treatment, and to continue with the pills until bruising disappears. Aspirin and nonsteroidal, anti-inflammatory treatments such as Advil and Aleve should be avoided 10 days before treatment to minimize bruising. Any patients with cardiac disease must talk to their cardiologist before discontinuing or changing medications. Other potential, if rare, side effects include swelling, nodule formation, and bluish skin tint. Swelling and bruising usually disappear after a few days, while other side effects are easily corrected by your physician. We encourage patients to call or come in to correct side effects.
Are You a Juvederm Candidate? Juvederm may be used on any patient regardless of nationality or skin type. However, in order to determine which anti-aging treatment is best for a particular patient, it is necessary they meet with the physician performing the treatment to discuss all possible methods of skin rejuvenation.
Should You Spend Less for Juvederm at a Day Spa? As with any service, cosmetic treatments can be obtained at bargain prices. Since you are a prospective Juvederm Los Angeles patient, a few simple reminders may help you decide where to go for your treatment. Firstly, not all patients are alike; there are differences with regard to race, sex, and anatomy. At the Kopelson Clinic, you will receive your treatments from a board certified dermatologist. You will never be treated by a nurse or an assistant. Also, you never have to worry that the Kopelson Clinic is “watering down” their Injectables. Using diluted Juvederm injections in Los Angeles may allow practitioners to lower their prices. This not only decreases efficacy and longevity, it can also cause the spread of the substance resulting in potentially harmful effects. As a patient, you deserve to have the best treatment, make sure you choose the Kopelson clinic. The best dermatologist in Los Anegles with years of experience.
