- JUVÉDERM is from the makers of BOTOX® Cosmetic. This filler works well to minimize nasolabial folds (smile lines). JUVÉDERM is made with hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in your body so it is non-allergenic. JUVÉDERM is a gel with a very smooth consistency, allowing it to flow easily into the skin to produce a result that looks natural.
- Restylane is often used for lip augmentation and to reduce wrinkles or scars. It uses a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid that is non-allergenic and absorbed by your body over time.
- Perlane is similar to Restylane but contains larger particles of hyaluronic acid. These larger particles give Perlane the ability treat deeper wrinkles and last up to 12 months. Perlane can be placed deeper in the skin for more dramatic volume enhancement.
- Collagen injections have been among the most popular cosmetic procedures for many years. A simple allergy test will determine if you are able to receive injections of collagen in San Jose, CA.

Dermal filler treatment usually takes less than one hour. Dr. Hoffman will use a very fine needle to gently place the product under your skin. Most patients feel only minimal discomfort that has been described as a slight sting or feeling of pressure; this can be alleviated with topical anesthetic.
Recovery and Results
You can return to work or carry on with your daily routine right after your treatment. Even better, you won't have to wait to see results. Some patients experience mild bruising, swelling or redness at the injection site for a brief period after treatment. These versatile treatments last many months before they are harmlessly absorbed by the body. They may be repeated regularly with consistent results.
Some patients consider more permanent options for wrinkle treatment. San Jose face lift patients achieve dramatic and lasting reduction of wrinkles and sagging skin on the lower face after surgery. Dr. Hoffman can help you decide which plastic surgery procedure is right for you.
