A Lunchtime Facelift with Juvederm
Ask any woman over a certain age what her beauty biggest complaint is and she’ll undoubtedly reply, “Wrinkles!” Crow’s feet, laugh lines, lip lines, fine lines, no matter what you call them, they all fall into the same category: unwanted. After spending umpteen years on the earth, collagen and elastin fibers are less apt to bounce back into place. Heap UV exposure, smoking, stress and even the way you sleep onto the dog pile and you’ve got a perfect storm for premature ageing. While going under the knife is one way to save face, there’s a far less painful, more natural-looking way to restore the skin of your youth: Juvederm.
What is Juvederm?
When it comes to eradicating unwanted wrinkles, Juvederm is the most advanced dermatological filler on the market. Thanks to its silky consistency and lightweight composition of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring protein found in skin tissue – Juvederm offers unparalleled, long-lasting results when administered under Dr. Alexander Rivkin’s [link] care. Unlike thicker gel fillers, Juvederm offers visible yet natural-looking results with the least amount of downtime and the fewest side effects.
Am I a Candidate for Juvederm?
To ensure Juvederm is the right choice for your specific concerns, Dr. Rivkin encourages new patients to set up an individual consultation at Westside Aesthetics. During this initial appointment, Dr. Rivkin will review your medical history and any relevant allergies before scheduling a treatment since certain conditions can impair Juvederm’s efficacy.
Typically, Dr. Rivkin recommends Juvederm as a solution for:
- Pronounced wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyebrows
- Deep-set laugh lines and wrinkles around the mouth and lips
- Acne scarring
- Sunken hollows around the eyes and/or pronounced dark circles
Before the Procedure
Before any treatment, first-time patients meet for a complimentary one-on-one consultation at Westside Aesthetics. In addition to reviewing your medical history, Dr. Rivkin will inquire about your personal treatment goals, and together you will set realistic expectations for the procedure. Our centrally-located Los Angeles office is convenient to get to and our friendly, highly-trained staff of professionals is available to answer questions to ensure you feel at ease throughout the entire process.
Why Choose Our Practice?
A Yale-trained, board-certified cosmetic surgeon and a UCLA faculty member [link], Dr. Rivkin was among the first doctors in the United States to offer Juvederm after its introduction from Europe. He has undergone extensive training in the art of using this groundbreaking filler and he was handpicked by Allergen to participate in Juvederm’s clinical trials before it was released in the US.
Dubbed the “lunchtime lift,” a Juvederm treatment with Dr. Rivkin typically takes about 15 minutes and patients can immediately return to work. He will carefully and precisely inject the filler into key locus points to ensure the most accurate outcome. Results are manifest immediately.
After the Procedure
Minimal swelling, bruising, and redness may occur after your Juvederm injection, but will fully subside in about three days. You will be able to return straight to work and can resume normal activities immediately after treatment. In general, Juvederm is relatively risk-free and painless, offering you unparalleled results with the shortest recovery period.
