Juvéderm™ is a dermal filler made of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid that plumps up the skin, effectively smoothing out unsightly facial lines and wrinkles without the risk of allergic reaction. Juvéderm can be used around the forehead, eyes, nose, and mouth, and it can even be used to add volume to the lips and cheeks to give you a more contoured appearance. In addition, Juvéderm can be used to temporarily fill in facial scars caused by acne and other conditions.

Because JUVÉDERM® is absorbed very slowly by the body, results are long-lasting. You can benefit from smooth, supple skin for up to one year.
Your JUVÉDERM® Procedure
Your JUVÉDERM® procedure can be completed in one short visit to our Los Angeles plastic surgery office. Dr. O’Toole will inject Juvederm into the mid to deep dermal layers of your facial skin. The hyaluronic acid in the JUVÉDERM® gel will lift and add volume to the wrinkles in the region being treated. Over time, this biocompatible material will be naturally absorbed by your body.
After treatment with JUVÉDERM®, you may experience some redness, bruising, or swelling at the injection site. However, these minor side effects dissipate rather quickly. JUVÉDERM® can be combined with blepharoplasty or nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedures such as chemical peels for enhanced results.
Benefits of JUVÉDERM®
JUVÉDERM® offers several benefits compared with other dermal fillers. Its pliant gel consistency gives you smoother, more natural looking results than some of the other alternatives available. It also lasts longer than many other dermal fillers, providing you exceptional results for up to one year. You can maintain these results fore even longer by returning to Pasadena Cosmetic Surgery for a follow-up treatment.
JUVÉDERM® also comes in two formulations, enabling Dr. O’Toole to more effectively customize your treatment to address your unique aesthetic goals.
