San Mateo residents are the same as everyone else when it comes to aging. We all do it, and our skin loses its’ elasticity and so we start to get wrinkles, lines around the eyebrows, sagging skin around the neck and jawline.: Juvederm is an “injectable” which can make your skin look younger.

Now today, we are in the 21st century, so we have a very large range of different treatments that can be used to halt the aging process, and, indeed, reverse it as far as appearance goes. Unfortunately, we haven’t got to the point where we can halt aging, but at least we can do something about the look that it produces.

At Silicon Valley Aesthetic Dermatology in Foster City, we have an expert team who can provide whatever is the most appropriate treatment for each individual patient. Everybody is an individual and what is the best treatment for one may be not the best for someone else.

Among other things, there is a range of what are known as “injectables” for the simple reason that they are products which can be injected into the skin in order to produce a younger-looking you. This means that there is no need for any sort of surgery such as that carried out in what is known as a face lift, although the end result will be very similar.


One of the injectables that we provide is called Juvederm and it is one of the most sought-after brands. If San Mateo Juvederm is the right injectable for you, you will want to know that it is based on Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which is a natural substance in the body that helps to add volume to the skin. As we get older, the skin loses its’ elasticity, and Juvederm effectively plumps it up again.

Juvederm will soften those lines and wrinkles producing a softer, smoother, younger look by increasing the volume in the skin. Results can last for as long as 18 months before you might need a further treatment.

However, San Mateo Juvederm may not be the most appropriate treatment for your skin condition. At Silicon Valley Aesthetic Dermatology, we are “vendor neutral”. In other words, we won’t promote one particular product over another because it happens to be the most expensive, for example, but we will advise you of the product which will best suit your needs and produce the result that you want. That may, or may not, be San Mateo Juvederm.

If it is not the best solution for you that is not a problem. Don’t worry. We have several other injectables. We also use laser treatments, microdermabrasion, facials, ultrasound, and so on. We will offer you the best solution for your particular needs.
