Facial wrinkles, folds, and creases are the most common aesthetic issue our clients want to resolve. In the past, dermal fillers could improve the appearance of wrinkles and folds, but for only about six months, after which another treatment is needed. At Laser Cliniqúe in San Diego, we are pleased to offer Juvederm Vollure XC, a treatment that helps to improve the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds with results that last up to eighteen months.
