JUVÉDERM® in Torrance, CA

As we age, the lower half of the face often reveals noticeable signs of aging, such as loss of volume and deepening lines. At South Bay Aesthetics Plastic Surgery in Torrance, CA, we address these changes directly, helping patients to look and feel their best by revitalizing their facial appearance.

JUVÉDERM is designed to address facial concerns by smoothing wrinkles and restoring volume where it’s been lost. Tailored to fit the unique contours of each patient’s face, JUVÉDERM specifically targets key areas to enhance a youthful and revitalized look.


JUVÉDERM, a product of Allergan, the creators of Botox, is a smooth gel consisting of densely cross-linked hyaluronic acid in the highest concentration available, enhancing its durability. The unique manufacturing method developed by Allergan produces a consistent gel that flows smoothly upon injection. This leads to a more even and smoother outcome for the patient.

JUVÉDERM is part of a group of non-animal sourced, highly cross-linked hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Its lack of animal derivatives means that no pre-treatment skin testing is necessary. Hyaluronic acid, a sugar molecule known as a polysaccharide, occurs naturally and is a fundamental component of the skin.


  • Smooth Fine Lines and Wrinkles: JUVÉDERM filler is designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by restoring volume beneath the skin’s surface, leading to a smoother, more youthful complexion.
  • Fill Nasolabial Folds: The pronounced lines that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth, known as nasolabial folds, can be softened with JUVÉDERM fillers, helping to refresh the overall facial appearance.
  • Enhance Lips: For those looking to add volume or define the contours of their lips, JUVÉDERM lip treatments offer a non-surgical solution to achieve fuller, more balanced lips.
  • Augment Cheeks: JUVÉDERM treatments are effective at enhancing cheek volume which can lift the entire face and reduce the sagging that comes with age.
  • Treat Under-Eye Hollows: JUVÉDERM dermal fillers are useful for addressing the hollows that appear under the eyes as we age, helping to reduce shadows and giving a more rested and rejuvenated look.
  • Contour Chin and Jawline: To define and sculpt the lower face, JUVÉDERM can be used to enhance the chin and jawline and create a more pronounced and aesthetically pleasing profile.

What Are the Benefits of Treatment With JUVÉDERM? 

The primary role of hyaluronic acid is to retain moisture, enhancing volume. It functions as a natural absorber, capable of holding up to 1000 times its weight in water. This hydration boosts the ability to bind with collagen and elastin and may even shield these fibers from degradation by the body’s enzymes.

The outcome of this treatment typically includes diminished facial wrinkles and an enhanced appearance of the skin. The specific cross-linking in JUVÉDERM helps maintain moisture even as the body processes the filler, extending its effectiveness for up to 12 months.
