What is Juvéderm®?

Aging can cause skin to lose its youthful fullness. Our San Jose Juvéderm® treatment adds volume and fills lines and wrinkles by using high concentrations of hyaluronic acid, a synthetic form of a natural substance in the body. Hyaluronic acid depletes as we get older. HA, along with collagen form your skin’s complex connective tissues and make your face look full and youthful. It also maintains the water level in your skin, so it appears fresh and supple.

Juvéderm® XC (Juvéderm® with the addition of lidocaine) was the first hyaluronic acid filler in a gel formula, which causes less inflammation and results in a smoother and longer-lasting outcome.

The hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm® is non-animal sourced, and it does not require an allergy test, so it is safe to use on all skin types.

Your Juvéderm® Treatment

We will ask you to avoid aspirin and blood thinners for about a week prior to your injections. We administer Juvéderm® XC in San Jose using a very thin needle and although it is not a painful treatment, topical anesthetic can be applied to numb the site of your injections. In addition, the formula itself includes Lidocaine to further numb the skin and make the treatment more comfortable for you.

The injections themselves usually take no more than 30 to 45 minutes, as Juvéderm® XC’s gel formula glides easily into the skin. An ice pack may be applied to the area to reduce any minor swelling and you will be allowed to go home immediately.

What is the Recovery Time After Juvéderm® Injections?

Juvéderm® XC injections require no downtime but it is advised to avoid exercise several days after the procedure. You might have some minor bruising, swelling, tenderness, and itching where the needle was inserted. These symptoms usually only last a few days to a week and will resolve on their own. You can use makeup to cover any minor bruising you are advised to use sunblock any time you are outdoors.

Where is Juvéderm® most frequently used?

Our Palo Alto Juvéderm® XC injectables and other dermal fillers work on lines, wrinkles, and folds that are a result of lost volume in the face and neck. Juvéderm® is most effective on moderate to severe wrinkles such as:

  • Nasolabial folds that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth
  • Marionette lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin
  • Fine lines above the upper lip and at the corners of the mouth
  • Juvéderm® XC can also be used for lip augmentation. For lusher, plumper lips, this product creates a very soft, attractive enhancement.

Can Juvéderm® be used on frown lines?

For wrinkles caused by muscle activity, such as frown lines and crow’s feet, BOTOX® injections work best. Juvéderm® is generally used on areas such as the cheeks, lips and mouth to restore facial contours. After we examine you, we will be able to advise you which injectable product will provide you with the look you want. Sometimes, a combination of dermal fillers and BOTOX® is recommended.

How long will my Juvéderm® results last?

You will see immediate results following your treatment. Typically, your Juvéderm® XC results will become fully visible 2-3 weeks after your treatment. During this amount of time any swelling will have decreased, and you may opt for further injections of Juvéderm® XC. In a clinical study, patients reported looking 5 years younger up to six months after their treatment. For most people, Juvéderm® XC lasts about six to nine months, however, some patients have had it last as long as 18 months. Results have been shown to last up to two years for those that received injections in the cheek area.

Even with social distancing, we're still here for you.

As the current situation with COVID-19 is rapidly evolving, we are continuing to make decisions regarding our practice to keep ourselves and our community healthy. As the future of this virus is uncertain, it is mandated by Santa Clara County Public Health Department Officials that all non-essential businesses close their doors and shelter in place.

Because of this region-wide order, our office will be closed as of Tuesday, March 17th, 2020 and will be rescheduling all non-emergent treatments, follow up appointments and surgeries after Tuesday, April 7th, 2020.⁣ All future in-office events for March and April have been postponed until further notice.

To those patients that need to be seen urgently for post-operative or emergent appointments - please call our office phone number. Your call will be forwarded to an employee that can best help you as we will still have remote access to our schedule. They will make the necessary arrangements to ensure you receive the proper care. ⁣

We are confident that we will make it through this and become a stronger and smarter community because of it. Yes, most people do not die from COVID-19 and many can be asymptomatic - but the sooner we isolate from one another, the sooner we can make sure those statistics do not change.⁣

As physicians, we hold health to the utmost importance so we please ask those of you who can - work from home when possible, do not go to restaurants or bars, limit your public exposure and be cognizant of those who are sick, elderly or immunocompromised. In this time, we have to not only think of ourselves, but think of those that can be directly affected and do all we can for the sake of our community, our state, and our country.⁣

We do not believe this is a time to panic - but rather the opposite. It is time to be rational and act with extreme purpose. By preventatively closing our doors for the next 3 weeks - we may be helping change the course of a potentially life-changing event in history.⁣

We look forward to a future of health and happiness with you at Cheng Plastic Surgery!⁣

Caring and cautious regards,⁣

Dr. Elbert & Dr. Jacqueline Cheng
