Dermal Fillers in Orange County

Restore Volume and Rejuvenate Your Features

As you grow older, you may notice that your facial features are not as plump as they used to be. As a result, fine lines and wrinkles may start to creep in, facial hollows may become more noticeable and some areas may begin to turn downward and sag. These changes can make you look older than how you feel. But with JUVÉDERM dermal fillers, we can instantly reverse these common signs of facial aging by restoring lost volume.

JUVÉDERM is one type of injectable used in facial rejuvenation and enhancement. It can smooth out wrinkles, fill in facial hollows, plump the lips and enhance the cheeks. This versatile anti-aging solution can be used on almost any area of your face. And when paired with other injectables in what is known as a “liquid facelift,” it can practically make you look a decade younger.

At California Vein Specialists in Orange County, we offer a range of JUVÉDERM injections, each designed to address specific cosmetic concerns. These injections are one of our most popular services because they’re versatile, offer natural-looking results and can last for a long


JUVÉDERM is a family of FDA-approved dermal fillers developed by Allergan Aesthetics, the makers of BOTOX® and other trusted cosmetic treatments. JUVÉDERM fillers are made using a modified form of hyaluronic acid (HA) as its active ingredient. HA is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that keeps it hydrated, plump, and elastic. Our HA levels decline as we get older, leading to wrinkles, folds and loss of volume. JUVÉDERM replenishes this vital skin component, instantly smoothing lines and restoring youthful contours.

What Does JUVÉDERM® Treat?

JUVÉDERM dermal fillers have received FDA approval for a range of cosmetic purposes in anyone 21 years and older. These fillers can rejuvenate the face by smoothing out wrinkles and filling in areas with volume loss. They can also enhance your natural features by adding fullness and lift where desired.

At California Vein Specialist in Newport Beach, we use JUVÉDERM fillers to treat the following
cosmetic concerns:

  • Lines, wrinkles and folds in the lower face
  • Mild to moderate sagging in the jowls and cheeks
  • Hollow cheeks, temples and under-eye bags
  • Thin or thinning lips
  • Smoker’s lines and chin dimples
  • Flat or sagging cheeks
  • Mild facial asymmetry

Our office offers JUVÉDERM treatments as well as a range of other options to freshen and rejuvenate your appearance. Contact us to schedule a one-on-one consultation today.

How Does JUVÉDERM® Work?

JUVÉDERM fillers contain a modified form of hyaluronic acid. This HA is different from your skin’s natural HA because it is cross-linked and designed to integrate seamlessly into your skin, attracting and retaining moisture for long-lasting results.

JUVÉDERM is injected just underneath the skin using fine-gauge needles or cannulas. Once injected, the hyaluronic acid attracts up to 300 times its weight in water. This is the secret behind its natural-looking plumping and lifting effect.

The results are noticeable immediately after you get the injections. That is because JUVÉDERM fillers have a gel-like consistency that provides instant smoothing and filling. As the product “settles” into your tissues over the next two weeks, you will see your final results emerge. The benefits may not end there. Researchers believe that HA can also help stimulate collagen production, which may explain why some patients feel JUVÉDERM injections continue to
rejuvenate their skin after the initial benefits have worn off.

What JUVÉDERM® Fillers Are Available?

JUVÉDERM comes in different formulations, the most well-known being JUVÉDERM XC, JUVÉDERM® XC Ultra and JUVÉDERM® XC Ultra Plus. Ultra Plus works best when treating severe or deep folds and wrinkles in the face, particularly those that develop around the nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM Ultra is used to treat mild to moderate cases where facial lines are not quite so severe. Allergan has also introduced additional fillers with patented Vycross technology called JUVÉDERM Volbella, JUVÉDERM Voluma and JUVÉDERM Vollure. These formulations last longer and offer subtle or dramatic enhancement where needed.

The effects of JUVÉDERM injections depend on the type of formulation used. Some formulations are thinner in consistency, making them ideal for areas of the face where the skin is thin and needs subtle improvement. Others are thick to add dramatic volume or strong lift in areas such as nasolabial folds or the lips.
With JUVÉDERM, you can achieve natural-looking results that can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months, depending on the specific product and treatment area.

Areas Where JUVÉDERM® Can Help

JUVÉDERM dermal fillers have been approved to address problems in seven specific areas of
the face:

  • Cheeks
  • Under-eyes
  • Corners of the mouth and nose
  • The area around the mouth
  • Chin
  • Jawline
  • Lips

While other injectables are more suitable for the upper third of the face (e.g. Botox) or the neck area (e.g. Kybella), JUVÉDERM is ideal for the mid-face where cosmetic issues are often due to loss of skin and facial volume.
In the hands of an experienced injector, these products can also be used off-label to improve the appearance of hollowed temples, to lift the brows and to volumize the back of the hands.

The JUVÉDERM® Procedure – What to Expect

Injectable treatments are performed in the comfort of our office after a short consultation. During your consultation, your provider will review your medical history, talk to you about any medications or supplements you are taking, and assess your areas of concern. If you are deemed a good candidate for JUVÉDERM injections, the treatment can be performed immediately or at a future appointment.

Your provider will cleanse your skin and map out the injection points, then strategically inject the JUVÉDERM gel using an ultra-fine needle or blunt-tipped cannula. Most patients report minimal discomfort during the procedure, thanks to JUVÉDERM’s built-in lidocaine anesthetic. You will likely only feel mild pinching during your injections and no pain after. The entire treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes, so you can easily fit it into your busy schedule and get back to the important parts of your day.

JUVÉDERM® Aftercare

There is no required downtime after JUVÉDERM injections. You will leave our office with a refreshed appearance and can resume most of your usual activities. You may experience mild swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection sites, but these side effects usually resolve within a few days.

To ensure optimal results and minimize complications, follow your provider’s post-treatment instructions, which may include the following:

  • Avoid NSAIDs and blood-thinning supplements to reduce your risk of bleeding and bruising
  • Limit sun exposure and protect your skin with high-SPF sunscreen in the days after treatment
  • Avoid rubbing the area for one or two days to prevent product migration
  • Avoid vigorous exercise and exposing yourself to excessive heat from hot weather, saunas and showers to prevent swelling

JUVÉDERM® — The Results

Your JUVÉDERM results will be visible as soon as your injections are complete. The gel-like formula provides immediate filling and volume. Your final results will develop over the next one to two weeks as the filler integrates with your tissues. Your refreshed, rejuvenated appearance can last up to 18 months, depending on the specific JUVÉDERM product used and your individual response to treatment. Your body will gradually break down, absorb and remove the hyaluronic acid from your body. Taking good care of your skin, eating a balanced diet and following a healthy lifestyle can help prolong your results. If you are unhappy with your results or simply decide fillers are not for you, we can reverse this treatment with hyaluronidase injections. These contain an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid rapidly to dissolve the filler.

Why Choose JUVÉDERM®?

JUVÉDERM stands out among other dermal fillers for its:

  • Long-lasting, natural-looking results
  • Minimal downtime and side effects
  • Versatility in treating multiple facial areas
  • Ability to be combined with other treatments for comprehensive rejuvenation
  • High patient satisfaction rates

At California Vein Specialists, we are dedicated to providing personalized, state-of-the-art care to help you look and feel your best. Our experienced providers, led by Dr. Leary, will work closely with you to develop a customized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and goals.

What Are the Risks and Side Effects?

As a minimally invasive, nonsurgical procedure, JUVÉDERM injectables carry a very low side effect profile. The hyaluronic acid in this filler is biocompatible, so the risk of developing an allergic reaction is minimal. Other types of injectable filler treatments may trigger antibody reactions and counteract the filler’s effectiveness. JUVÉDERM’s chemical makeup will not. You may experience mild swelling or bruising immediately after the procedure is done. Symptoms of swelling typically subside within a day’s time. While JUVÉDERM does offer a safe, effective method for reducing signs of aging, women who are pregnant or nursing shouldn’t have the procedure.

Combining JUVÉDERM® With Other Treatments

Because facial aging and cosmetic concerns are rarely a result of one issue, combiningctreatments helps create balanced results. We often combine JUVÉDERM with other treatments, particularly other injectables like Botox.

While BOTOX can help address wrinkles and other concerns in the upper third of the face, JUVÉDERM can rejuvenate the mid and lower face. When these two types of injectables are combined, it is often referred to as a “liquid facelift.”

Personalized Care and Planning at California Vein Specialists

There’s no overestimating the importance of choosing an experienced doctor when electing to have any facial restoration work done. Expertise not only helps ensure the result is what you expect, but an experienced doctor also considers other options when planning your treatment. Dr. Leary has years of experience in performing a range of different procedures. At our medical practice, we develop a comprehensive treatment plan that’s tailored to your condition and the results you desire. If JUVÉDERM isn’t able to produce the overall look you want, other options can be combined with JUVÉDERM to address your concerns holistically and produce an overall youthful appearance. A one-on-one consultation with the doctor is the best way to determine which option is best for you.

JUVÉDERM® Cost Factors in Orange County

Since dermal fillers are elective procedures, your insurance will not cover the costs of treatment. Price is based on the number of syringes used during your treatment. Ultimately, the complexity of your case and the experience level of your provider will determine the total cost involved. Something to keep in mind is facial restoration procedures require a considerable level of experience to ensure the patient leaves the office happy with the result. In this respect, cost-effectiveness has as much to do with the result as it does with the cost of the product. California Vein Specialists’ years of expertise go a long way toward delivering the results you desire at a reasonable price.
