Juvederm

Juvederm Santa Ana & San Clemente

Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler used to restore volume to areas that need it. It lifts and adds volume to facial wrinkles and folds, in addition to enhancing lips. It is injected beneath the skin and supplements the body’s natural hyaluronic acid, Hyaluronic acid is a natural complex sugar found throughout all living organisms that retains water — absorbing more than 1,000 times its weight — and adds volume to the skin’s surface. Juvederm is a highly cross linked form of hyalouronic acid. Cross-linking refers to a process in which the individual chains of hyaluronic acid are chemically bound (or “cross-linked”) together, transforming the liquid hyaluronic acid into a soft solid, or “gel.” The firmness of the gel depends on the degree of cross-linking of the individual hyaluronic acid chains. The body metabolizes cross-linked hyaluronic acid more slowly, resulting in a longer duration of effect. In addition, hyaluronic acid binds with collagen and elastin and transports essential nutrients to these fibers. The triple combination of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid provides structure, elasticity and volume to the skin and contributes to its overall appearance.

As the skin ages and is exposed to environmental pollutants and ultraviolet rays, the cells lose the ability to produce hyaluronic acid. As a result, the skin begins to lose volume, often resulting in the formation of facial wrinkles and folds, appearance of sunken eyes, and gaunt face. Dermal fillers comprised of cross-linked hyaluronic acid are used by physicians to help temporarily replace lost hyaluronic acid and to restore skin volume and a smooth, natural appearance. The Juvederm molecules are smaller than the molecules in Restylane, therefore Juvederm absorbs less water and results in less swelling and a more natural appearance for lip enhancement. Hyaluronic acid fillers offer longer lasting results than collagen-based fillers. Results can last about three to twelve months. Side effects may include redness, bruising, tenderness, swelling, pain and itching.

"I have used Advanced Laser & Cosmetics, Dr. Roham for 7 or 8 years. He is my go-to guy. I get my botox and fillers through him, I have had laser on my face to remove sun damage. He has done my upper eyes and performed a tummy tuck with liposuction.  All have had absolutely amazing results. I look young without looking over done. I trust Dr. Roham to tell me when I am ready for a procedure and when I am not. The staff are wonderful, understanding, available and always ready to make the extra effort so every experience I have had is top notch. I have great regard for Dr.

November 2016 I received botox and fillers from Dr. Roham and the results are fantastic! I look better than ever and not overdone.  While I was in the office, I took advantage of their Latisse special so my eyelashes are fabulous too!"
