Conveniently located to serve Los Angeles
Treatment with JUVÉDERM®️ in Los Angeles plumps up wrinkles and folds, creating a more youthful look. When injected into the skin, this injectable dermal filler fills in moderate and harsh age lines, depressions, and certain scars. It can also be used to improve lip volume.
How Does JUVÉDERM®️ Work?
JUVÉDERM is made from hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the body. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that helps to keep your skin moisturized and hydrated. JUVÉDERM’s synthetic HA connects to water molecules, increasing the volume of the skin.
Who Are Good Candidates for JUVÉDERM Treatment?
JUVÉDERM dermal fillers are best for adults who want to reduce signs of aging like age lines and thin lips. It is important to have realistic cosmetic goals before undergoing this treatment.
Patients who have fine lines like crow’s feet and horizontal forehead lines are not ideal candidates for JUVÉDERM. These patients can benefit from Botox injections.
Types of JUVÉDERM Fillers
JUVÉDERM Ultra XC and JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC are injectable fillers that can be used to improve the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds. They’re especially effective at treating the nasolabial folds, which are the deep folds that stretch from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth.
The fundamental distinction between the two fillers is their consistency. JUVÉDERM Ultra XC is a significantly thinner formulation than JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC, which is substantially thicker.
The thicker consistency makes JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC especially effective for treating mid-face volume loss, moderate-to-severe facial creases, and thin lips. Ultra XC is a better option for lighter age signs.
JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC can last significantly longer than JUVÉDERM Ultra XC. They are, however, both extremely effective and can be used based on your demands and aesthetic goals.
What Happens During a Consultation?
Prior to receiving JUVÉDERM treatment, you will discuss your cosmetic goals and expectations with Dr. Dishakjian. Since the procedure is less invasive, it is usually performed on the same day as the consultation. Dr. Dishakjian will advise you to stay away from certain medications that raise the risk of bleeding and bruising at the treatment site.
Alcoholic drinks and cigarettes must also be avoided prior to JUVÉDERM treatment, since they can cause bruising. Any allergies or sensitivities should be discussed with Dr. Dishakjian.
What to Expect During the Procedure
Dr. Dishakjian will use a small needle to inject the chosen JUVÉDERM filler directly into the skin of the area that requires treatment.
JUVÉDERM is already formulated with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, so there is no need to numb the injection site beforehand. Depending on the size of the treatment area and the number of treatments required, the treatment might take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes.
When Will I See Results?
The results of JUVÉDERM injections are visible right away. The duration of the treatment can be aided by maintaining a regular skincare regimen and leading a healthy lifestyle.

Usually, patients can get back to their regular routines right after receiving JUVÉDERM filler treatment. Dr. Dishakjian advises you to refrain from strenuous activity for the first 24 to 48 hours in order to prevent exacerbating swelling and bruising.
Mild redness and numbness are to be anticipated after receiving JUVÉDERM injections. However, they can be relieved in a few hours or days by using ice or performing a light massage.
