Dermatologists Dr. Goldman and Dr. Dubow are expert injectors with both Juvederm and Restylane and located in the Cedars-Sinai building in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles.
Goldman Dubow Dermatology offers the most state of the art rejuvenation for aging and photodamaged skin. We are among the most experienced practices in Los Angeles for the injection of the hyaluronic acid fillers Juvederm and Restylane. All of our procedures are performed by a Physician (Dr. Goldman or Dr. Dubow) and never by a nurse or assistant. We take great pride in providing our patients with a natural rejuvenated look and avoiding an overdone, plastic or expressionless appearance.
Juvéderm® and Restylane® are the two most popular hyaluronic acid fillers approved by the FDA. They are both a gel filler used to smooth away wrinkles around your nose and mouth. Both Juvederm and Restylane are derived from a natural substance that is found within your body, therefore eliminating any sensitivity issues.
Facial wrinkles and creases begin to appear in your lips and skin as the underlying collagen and elastin fibers begin to break down and wear out. Juvederm or Restylane can be used to counteract these aging effects. Dr. Goldman and Dr. Dubow can use Juvederm or Restylane to treat problems such as:
Juvederm and Restylane treatments are quick and simple. Juvederm and Restylane injections are put into the skin to create volume, resulting in a healthy and rejuvenated appearance. The treatment helps to ‘fill out’ and smooth away wrinkles and lines, and when injected into the lip can restore a more natural and sensuous look. Results are immediate and yield minimal recovery time.
While the effects of Juvederm and Restylane vary from patient to patient, most experience results for ~9 months. Once the effects wear off, you can repeat the Juvederm or Restylane treatment as necessary.
Call our office in Beverly Hills to schedule and appointment to come in for a consultation with Dr. Goldman or Dr. Dubow. We will assess your personal needs and let you know how much your Juvederm or Restylane treatment will cost. But on average, the 1st syringe of either Juvederm or Restylane is $650, and the 2nd syringe is $550.

A: Rest assured, a natural looking result is our #1 priority!
A: Juvederm and Restylane are made of hyaluronic acid, which adds volume to facial tissue.
A: Juvederm/Restylane will be injected directly into your skin in tiny amounts using an ultra fine needle. The procedure is simple and quick, and will be performed by Dr Goldman or Dr Dubow. This diagram shows how the fillers will actually fill in the depressions in your skin and smooth out the skin’s surface, resulting in the appearance of a more youthful complexion.
A: Treatments vary from patient to patient, depending on your particular needs. On average patients need about 3 treatment sessions, each 4 weeks apart.
A: Facial treatments will last up to 9 months.
A: You may have swelling, numbness and redness for a few hours following the procedure, but can go back to work as soon as you feel comfortable with the way you look.
A: Topical anesthesia may be applied before the procedure to minimize discomfort, but this is usually not necessary as the treatment is almost painless. We also mix every filler with a numbing agent to further ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
A: As with most injectables, common side effects include localized pain, tenderness, inflammation, redness, itching, bruising and/or swelling. These are normal side-effects from the result of an injection and will disappear within a few days. However, most of our patients experience absolutely no side effects.
A: You will be able to see the full results of your treatment immediately after the procedure. However, you may have some swelling giving your face a more volumized appearance, but within a few days the swelling will go down and you will be able to see the full results.
A: Yes, and in many cases Dr. Dubow and Dr. Goldman will recommend this combination wrinkle fighting technique. By preventing extreme muscle movement, Botox helps Juvederm/Restylane last longer. It’s a synergistic effect that seems to prolong the positive effects of both. Read real stories from other patients here and here.

To reduce the chance of bruising, avoid the following for 7 days before treatment:
Have you ever had a cold sore? If so, please call our office and we will write you a prescription for Valtrex (an anti-viral).
The intensity and duration of your side effects depends on the aggressiveness of your treatment and your individual healing characteristics, but can last up to a week after treatment. Side effects can include:
After Treatment Skin Care
Perlane®, just like Juvederm and Restylane, is a gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds. Unlike Juvederm and Restylane, Perlane is often better for injecting into areas where a denser filler is needed like a deeper nasolabial fold (smile line) or for volume in the cheeks.
