Juvéderm Ultra® and Juvéderm Ultra Plus® Beverly Hills
This Juvéderm® family of products (that include Juvéderm Ultra® and Juvéderm Ultra Plus®) are dermal fillers that are used to smooth out and improve deep facial wrinkles and folds. These include the lip lines, smile lines, marionette lines, as well as other unwanted lines on your face. Because Juvéderm® products are very smooth, it can also be used for lip augmentation to give very soft and natural results.
Juvéderm® is composed of hyaluronic acid particles that are found naturally within our own bodies and is considered very safe with minimal adverse effects. In some patients, as time passes they lose their own natural hyaluronic acid and collagen and this causes the unwanted fold and facial lines. Juvéderm® is a great way to replace that lost hyaluronic acid and collagen and to restore your natural, and more refreshed appearance.
Dr. Attenello is considered an expert in the field of non-surgical fillers and injectables and has published articles and book chapters in these specific areas. She strives to provide superior results that still appear very natural and balanced.
