Given today's busy lifestyle, convenience is at a premium for most people, and our patients are no exception. Non-surgical alternatives offer our patients the most convenient options for facial rejuvenation with superior safety and efficacy. At our practice located in San Francisco, also serving Walnut Creek and Danville, Dr. Chow uses JUVÉDERM® Ultra injectable gel and Restylane® to quickly and easily treat wrinkles, frown lines, and other symptoms of facial aging for a more youthful appearance. With the Jan Marini line of skin care products, our patients can take advantage of the ultimate convenience of at-home treatment for skin imperfections.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Injectable Gel
JUVÉDERM® Ultra injectable gel contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound that quickly and safely adds volume to the face. Dr. Chow uses JUVÉDERM® Ultra injectable gel to fill wrinkles, fine lines, and other skin imperfections for our San Francisco-area patients, creating a smoother, more youthful complexion that lasts. JUVÉDERM® Ultra injectable gel produces subtle results that look amazingly natural and can take years off a person's appearance. The benefits of JUVÉDERM® Ultra are long lasting but temporary, making it an ideal option for patients who want to avoid the permanent commitment required for cosmetic surgery.
As with other injectables, JUVÉDERM® Ultra injectable gel treatment is quick and easy. The entire treatment process takes no more than an hour. There is no recovery period; after treatment, patients are free to return to their normal daily activities immediately. The benefits of JUVÉDERM® Ultra injectable gel may last six months or more, and as the body absorbs the hyaluronic acid, the skin is moisturized for even longer-lasting results.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus Injectable Gel
Like JUVÉDERM® Ultra injectable gel, JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus injectable gel is a hyaluronic-acid-based injectable filler. JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus injectable gel is more highly concentrated, making it ideal for the treatment of deeper wrinkles and facial folds. The benefits of JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus injectable gel last for about six months, and maintenance treatments can be administered as needed to preserve optimal results. Patients who visit our practice in San Francisco for JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus injectable gel treatments are frequently amazed at how long their results last.
In addition to JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel, our San Francisco practice also offers non-scarring Restylane® injections. Restylane® is a clear gel that effectively reduces the appearance of fine wrinkles in the forehead, cheeks, and chin, as well as around the lips and mouth. Restylane® is completely natural, containing no animal proteins, and is safe and painless. After a 30-minute treatment, superficial lines will be dramatically less perceptible. These results can last for months, and treatment can be repeated as necessary.

These physician-strength, glycolic-based products include Age Intervention® cream for the face and hands; Factor-A and Factor-A Plus lotions with Retinol, ideal for cleansing the skin and treating acne; and Bioglycolic Facial Lotion RX, a breakthrough skin care product that is available by prescription only.
