Fillers enhance your face’s youthful appearance by adding volume and contour. The key is to still look very natural and that requires a combination of art and skill. At Aesthetics MD, our philosophy is plastic surgery so natural, you can keep it a secret.
— Dr. Mark Anton, Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon
No matter your genetics or lifestyle the signs of aging will eventually show up on your face ages in three ways:
Juvederm is an HA (hyaluronic acid) filler ideal for augmenting lips, cheeks, treating perioral lines, Marionette lines and chin wrinkles. All fillers to date are absorbed by the body over time, but Juvederm can last up to 18 months. Obviously, the results will not be the same over its duration and often maintenance injections are desired.
Anyone concerned with facial aging, wrinkles, and loss of volume, or those who desire more prominent contours of the face is a good candidate for Juvederm. Some medications, lifestyles and medical conditions may be contraindicated, restrict or prohibit treatment.
Treatment area(s) is numbed with a topical numbing cream for 30 minutes before the treatment begins. In the case of augmenting lips, a dental block can be provided for the patient’s enhanced comfort. Most of our Newport Beach Juvederm patients find lip enhancement quite tolerable with just a topical numbing cream.
Juvederm can be administered through a cannula (a small, blunt-tipped needle) or injected by needle. Both processes are made comfortable by the numbing cream, (dental block if necessary), and the steady hand of the injector. Our Aesthetics MD nurses are highly trained and skilled in creating natural enhancements that compliment your unique beauty so that you never look overfilled or overdone.
A complimentary consultation before a Juvederm procedure allows you and the nurse to discuss your concerns and desires and set realistic expectations. Changes from Juvederm injections can be subtle but make a dramatic overall improvement in appearance.

Following treatment, the face will remain numb for several hours. Slight bruising and swelling can occur but is resolved in 3-5 days. To minimize bruising, patients can apply pressure to the injection site for ten minutes following treatment.
Juvederm XC offers immediate results. Because the lips are rather vascular, bruising is a common occurrence. However, with the use of cannula in this area, bruising is minimal if at all. Some tenderness in the treated area is normal but resolves within 3-5 days. Massage is recommended in the treated area(s) for the first 72 hours following treatment.
Juvederm XC is clinically proven to last up to 8 months. However, each body absorbs HA fillers at its own rate. People with a fast metabolism and athletes can expect to absorb Juvederm XC and all HA fillers more quickly.
For best results, protect skin by limiting sun exposure and applying a physical sunblock daily, such as CORE made in the shade or Elta MD. In some cases, Botox may enhance Juvederm XC’s results and longevity. Brilliant Distinction and Beauty Bank Points and Discounts Apply
