JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel
What is Juvéderm?
Everyone wants to look youthful, but not everyone is willing or requires surgery! Fortunately, JUVÉDERM can fill in lines and wrinkles in less than half an hour without surgery. The results look smooth and natural and can last for up to one year. The procedure’s affordability, ease, and quick recovery have contributed to its increasing popularity. JUVÉDERM has proven safe and effective for different skin types.
How does Juvéderm work?
While BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes the muscles under a wrinkle, JUVÉDERM wrinkle filler physically fills the crease or line with a smooth gel mixed with lidocaine, a numbing agent for comfort. In addition, JUVÉDERM replenishes the skin’s supply of a naturally-occurring moisturizer, hyaluronic acid (HA) that aging, sun damage and other factors deplete causing the skin to lose volume and structure. By replacing the skin’s HA, Juvèderm restores volume and smoothes out the folds. Its unique formulation has made JUVÉDERM the only HA filler that has gained FDA approval for lasting up to a year with just one treatment.
What can I expect during my initial Juvéderm consultation?
During your initial consultation, Elliot B. Duboys, MD will carefully examine your face and recommend the best treatment plan. JUVÉDERM works best for correcting moderate to severe folds and wrinkles, including nasolabial folds, labiomental and paragraph folds. JUVÉDERM Ultra XC offers extra versatility in adding contour and volume, while JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC provides stronger effects for deeper wrinkles and folds.
During your procedure, fine needle injections instill JUVÉDERM into the dermis. Immediately, skin volume is boosted and wrinkles appear diminished.
When can I return to normal activities?
After your treatment, you can return to your daily routine instantly with the exceptions of strenuous exercise, alcoholic beverages, and exposure to sun or heat.
