Juvederm is one of the safest and most popular dermal fillers when it comes to non-surgical facial rejuvenation. It is also greatly revered for its lip augmentation effects and long-lasting results, which can extend up to 12 months in some patients.
Avalon Laser in San Diego and Carlsbad is thrilled to be able to offer Juvederm to both men and women who are concerned with age-related loss of facial volume, thin lips and hollow cheeks. Please call us at 800-896-1138 to discuss this popular injectable treatment during a free consultation.
What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is composed of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance in the body. Hyaluronic acid is an essential substance in all mammals that adds volume to the skin. By using Juvederm, Dr. Reza Tirgari is able to restore facial volume, fill in facial scars and wrinkles and augments various parts of the face.

Here is what one of our Juvederm patients had to say about her Juvederm treatment and her treatment experience at Avalon Laser.
How Does Juvederm Work?
Juvederm is delivered as an injectable. At Avalon Laser we offer the latest Juvederm XC. This formula offer the cross-linked hyaluronic acid for long-lasting results and includes a numbing agent for maximum patient comfort during injections.
Juvederm XC is carefully injected into treatment areas previously identified by Dr. Tirgari. The treatment is completed within 30 to 40 minutes. Juvederm offers results that can last anywhere from six to 12 months. The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm provides volume that is usually lost over time. By restoring volume various facial lines, wrinkles and scars are filled in.
Recovery and Aftercare
Just like most injectables and dermal fillers, Juvederm does not require any recovery time. Aftercare is minimal and patients are often instructed to apply ice to the injection area or take anti-swelling, over-the-counter medicine to minimize swelling. Mild bruising and swelling is common at the injection site, but can easily be covered with powder and facial make up. These side-effects usually subside within 24 to 48 hours after treatment.
Patients can call us at any time after treatment with any aftercare questions. Juvederm results are usually visible right away and continue to improve for several weeks. Touch-up treatments can be applied within six months or so.
During your complimentary consultation, Dr. Tirgari will talk to you about your concerns and determine if Juvederm is right for you. He may also recommend using this treatment in combination with Radiesse or BOTOX® Cosmetic. The best course of treatment is determined based on each patient’s unique needs, aesthetic concerns, skin characteristics and medical history.
