JUVÉDERM in San Diego

You may be a candidate for Juvedérm if you have wrinkles on your face or around your lips that you wish to diminish.

Juvéderm is approved by the FDA for volumizing and correcting deep folds and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds (the “smile lines” between the nose and the corners of your mouth).

Same Day & Late Appointments

Juvedérm treatments can be done in our La Jolla office by appointment. It usually takes 30-45 minutes for a Juvéderm appointment. Your first appointment may take a little longer as we’ll include a thorough skin evaluation and consultation.

You may be able to come in on the same day you call! We reserve time in our schedules for fillers and Botox appointments. We can also see you during your lunch break or in the evening on certain days of the week. Call (858) 452-1981 to check availability.

Juvéderm Treatment Areas

One of the reasons Juvéderm has become so popular is because it can do so much! This versatile injectable has no shortage of indications, including:

  • Jawline Refinement: A little filler can go a long way in terms of sharpening and defining your jawline.
  • Chin Augmentation: Nonsurgical chin augmentation balances your facial proportions and gives your look a little extra structure.
  • Nose (Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty): Dr. Kiersten Riedler uses VOLUMA® XC to achieve a nonsurgical “nose job.”
  • Tear Troughs (Under-Eye Fillers): If you have hollows under your eyes that make you look perpetually tired, tear-trough fillers can smooth them away.
  • Cheek Volume: Adding fullness and definition to your cheeks gives your face a youthful and beautifully contoured shape.
  • Nasolabial Folds: Juvéderm is a favorite for treating these lines that run from the sides of your nose around your mouth.
  • Marionette Lines: These lines that run from the corners of the mouth down to the chin are no match for a little filler.

Can Juvéderm Be Used for Lip Enhancement?

Yes! We often treat our San Diego lip injections clients with Juvéderm Ultra Plus because of the softness it provides for lip enhancement. Many women worry that getting lip filler injections will make them look like a duck, but having Juvéderm injected into the lips can be quite subtle.

Watch below as our certified physician assistant Lauren Amico Reed uses lip filler to create fuller, more defined lips for one of our lovely LJC visitors.

Juvéderm vs. BOTOX® Cosmetic

Not sure about the differences between these injectables or which one you need? Here’s a quick rundown:

  • Juvéderm is a dermal filler that adds volume beneath the skin. It enhances contours and fills in lines and wrinkles caused by volume loss, such as nasolabial folds.
  • BOTOX is a neuromodulator. It interrupts signals telling certain muscles to contract, which smooths away dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and frown lines.

Often, our clients see the best results when they combine these treatments to address both types of concerns at once. This is sometimes called a “liquid facelift,” and it’s a highly popular nonsurgical facial rejuvenation option.

Enjoy pain-free filler injections with add-on option PRO-NOX™

Every patient deserves a comfortable experience, so we now offer an add-on option to use PRO-NOX™ during injectables, laser treatments, and other medical spa services.

What is PRO-NOX™?

PRO-NOX™ is a self-administered nitrous oxide (laughing gas) system that allows you to be in full control of your comfort. If at any point you need something to take the edge off, simply breathe through the PRO-NOX™ mouthpiece for instant relief from pain and anxiety.

Unlike oral pain medication, PRO-NOX™ takes effect in seconds but wears off minutes after your treatment, leaving no trace of the chemical in your body. You can safely drive and return to your normal routine without worrying about side effects.

Ask us about adding PRO-NOX™ to your treatment at your consultation, or contact us for more information!

How Long Does Juvéderm Last?

Juvéderm produces smooth and natural results that can last up to 6 months or longer. It can fill in and reduce the depth of the nasolabial fold or depressed acne scars. Its hyaluronic acid with gel particle suspension formulation creates a smooth gel that flows easily into the skin, creating volume.

  • VOLUMA XC to improve cheek contour, refine the nose, and add natural volume
  • VOLLURE® XC  for the long-term treatment of nasolabial folds

A Few More Juvéderm FAQs

Q: Is Juvéderm or BOTOX better?

A: It’s less a question about which option is better and more a question about which option is better for you, If you’re looking to boost your contours and fill in sunken wrinkles or folds, filler is probably your best solution. If you want to smooth out dynamic wrinkles, BOTOX might be a better choice. When you visit us for a consultation, your injector will have an in-depth discussion about your concerns and goals before recommending the right fit for you.

Q: What happens when fillers wear off?

A: Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvéderm wear off gradually over time as your body naturally breaks them down. You’ll notice a subtle decrease in volume after several months. At that time, you can choose to either let your results fade completely or come back in to re-up your look.

Q: Is one syringe of Juvéderm enough?

A: It depends on what you’re looking to treat. For smaller areas such as the lips or tear troughs, one syringe is often enough to create a great-looking result. For larger areas such as the cheeks, however, you may need an extra syringe or two to achieve a look you love.

Q: Is there anywhere that you shouldn’t inject fillers?

A: Fillers can be safely injected into many different areas of the face and hands. Some regions carry slightly higher risks than others because of the many blood vessels in the area, including the tear troughs and nose. That’s why it’s so important to choose a credentialed injector: Injectors need to have in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy to steer clear of any potential complications. In the hands of an experienced nurse or board-certified plastic surgeon, there’s no need to worry. We also carry an enzyme that dissolves hyaluronic acid quickly in the rare case you experience any issues.

Q: What are tear trough fillers?

A: Tear trough fillers are dermal fillers injected into the tear troughs, or the hollow areas (dark circles) below the eyes. Thanks to genetics, some of us have shadows in these areas that always make us look just a little tired, no matter how much coffee we drink. Filling the tear troughs creates a more rested and refreshed appearance, and it also achieves a smoother transition between the upper cheek and the lower eyelid.
