Cost & Financing
A treatment of Juvéderm in La Jolla typically starts at $650 per syringe. The final price will depend on the size of the treatment site, the number of syringes needed per area, and the number of additional treatment sessions required to maintain your desired results.
We accept cash, personal checks, and all major credit cards. We also offer various financing options to meet your needs.
Juvéderm, a transparent gel that is made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), is injected into the deeper tissues of the face. The product is popular among patients because it adds immediate volume to the treatment area and will slowly absorb water, increasing the overall volume in the skin. Juvéderm will be progressively absorbed over the course of 6 – 9months.
Now, a number of additional products are available that are manufactured using proprietary Vycross technology. Vycross technology employs a proprietary mix of low and high molecular weight HA, which results in a highly cross-linked gel that’s moldable immediately after injection, displays minimal gel swelling, and is designed to last longer than the earlier generation of fillers.
We offer a number of distinct formulations of HA fillers:
- Juvéderm Ultra Plus
It offers additional cross-linking that makes it more difficult for the body to break down the filler to provide longer-lasting results.
- Juvéderm XC
It harnesses the power of Ultra and Ultra Plus, with the addition of the anesthetic lidocaine built-in to the formula.
It has the lowest HA concentration which makes it the softest and most natural product excellent for challenging areas and for patients wanting a more natural result. The softness of the product makes it almost undetectable in the tissues.
It sits in an intermediate position within the Vycross line with respect to HA concentration. This allows a great deal of flexibility in the locations where this product can be of use.
It has the highest HA concentration which provides the longest lasting result and the most power to elevate and lift the tissues. This product is injected at a deeper level and ideal for the cheek and jawline.
WHAT TO EXPECT FOR YOUR
Bruising, incomplete correction
2 – 3 days
Local or topical anesthesia
Back to work: Immediate
More Strenuous Activities: 1 – 2 days
DURATION OF RESULTS
6 months or longer depending upon which product is used
Juvéderm and all of the Vycross products are generally well tolerated and the recovery is often immediate. Numbness in the treatment areas is expected and will depend on the anesthetic chosen for the treatment. Mild swelling and slight bruising can be expected due to the presence of the hyaluronic acid and the need for a needle to apply the product. Together with firmness, these issues will likely resolve within 48 – 72 hours and are easily concealed with make-up.
