"I can't say enough about Dr. Leong! I have struggled with stubborn unwanted fat around my middle section for years. Regardless of diet and exercise, I always seemed to have a muffin top that left me feeling insecure and uncomfortable. It only took one short meeting with Dr. Leong for me to finally feel confident with having her shape by middle through Liposuction and Thermage. I was previously very reluctant, but after meeting with her, I felt excited and ready. Dr. Leong's honest and straightforward, yet kind and pleasant approach put me right at ease. The proceedure itself went very smooth and Dr. Leong and her staff were helpful and available every step of the way. It has now been six months since my procedure and I am totally blown away with my results. They exceeded every possible expectation and I truly could not be happier!!"- S.K. / Yelp / Sep 19, 2018
"Lower face and neck lift - I’ve done every injectable from Botox to Sculptra and I wanted a more permanent fix to my aging face and neck. I had heard about Dr. Leong through a friend and I decided to make a consultation. When I met Dr. Leong I had my doubts about what this seemingly young doc could do for my 70+ year old face. How could she know what a woman my age needed? As we began to discuss my areas of c..."- E. / RealSelf / Mar 28, 2018

"Five Star Experience! - I have seen Dr. Leong for both medical and cosmetic visits. Her personality is very down to earth but precise which made me feel very comfortable going to her for multiple issues. I first saw Dr. Leong for a few minor skin tags, moles and cherry angiomas that were all over my body which I didn't like esthetically. She removed them with simplicity, quickness and I felt absolutely no pain. She..."- J. / RealSelf / Mar 11, 2018
"What a difference a great physician makes! - A year ago, I had the pleasure of consulting with Dr. Karen Leong for a minor lip asymmetry correction and augmentation.

Juvéderm injections typically only take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on which areas are being corrected. Your face will be cleaned and injection spots will be selected. To reduce discomfort during the process, Juvéderm dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic. After your treatment, you are allowed to go back to your daily routine, but strenuous activity including exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You should be careful to not touch your face after your treatment to avoid massaging the filler into other areas.
What to Expect
You typically experience a noticeable improvement immediately after your Juvéderm procedure, but you may also develop mild swelling or bruising in the treated areas for approximately 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm dermal fillers usually are visible for 4 – 6 months; some patients find that their improvements last longer after multiple years of treatments. Talk to Dr. Leong about when to book a touch-up or full session at her office to keep your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Juvéderm cost?
The price of Juvéderm will vary based on how much filler is necessary for the treatment area. The more filler that is used, the higher the cost of the treatment. Prior to your injection treatment, a customized treatment plan will be created to fit your aesthetic goals and budget.
Will the treatment be painful?
Though most patients do not find it necessary, a local anesthetic can be applied to the treatment area prior to injection if you are worried about any pain. Following treatment, you may experience some slight swelling and bruising that will usually subside within a week depending on the treatment area. You should contact our office if you experience any significant pain or abnormal side effects after your Juvéderm treatment.
What is the difference between a dermal filler and a muscle relaxer?
There is a great difference between dermal fillers and muscle relaxers such as BOTOX. Where BOTOX works to relax wrinkles and help prevent future wrinkles, Juvéderm helps to add volume to the face. Juvéderm is ideal for filling in deep-set wrinkles including smile lines, and it is also beneficial for creating fuller lips.
What results can I expect?
It may take a few days to see the full results of your Juvéderm treatment. Typically, it only takes one treatment session to achieve your desired outcome. However, you can schedule a follow-up appointment if you would like to add more volume than received with your initial treatment.
How long do results typically last?
The effects of one Juvéderm treatment can last anywhere from 4 – 6 months. This may vary based on the area in which the filler was injected. The longevity of results can also depend on how the patient’s body breaks down the filler over time.
