If wrinkles or facial folds are becoming more noticeable than you would like, a long lasting filler may be the solution you are looking for. Don’t spend another day adding worry lines to your most prominent feature.
Approved by the FDA In June 2006 Juvederm TM is a non-surgical, injectable gel used to restore the skin’s volume and provide correction of wrinkles and nasolabial folds. From the creators of Botox Cosmetic, Juvederm is considered a “next generation” injectable: it is dermal Facial Filler made of a smooth consistency gel that is composed of cross-linked hyaluronic acid.
The most common areas where fillers are utilized include:
• Nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the mouth)Cheek bones
• Marionette lines (lines beneath the corner of the mouth)
• Pre-jowl sulcus (indentation on the side of the jowl)
• Tin Lips
• Hands (aged hands lose fat and have more prominent tendons and veins)
• Lower eyelid rejuvenation
• Correction of nose bumps
• Acne Scars
Approximately 15 minutes, depending upon number of injections required to correct the target areas.
Dental Block Available upon request
Redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. Most reactions will subside in seven days or less.
Recovery & Resuls
The treated area may feel fuller than normal right after treatment, but this condition should resolve on its own quickly.
Results of Juvederm will endure for about 6 months, but many patients can benefit from a follow-up treatment a few weeks later. Additional injections and touch-ups may be requested to achieve optimal correction. Because hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance, it will gradually absorb into the body.
There is a small risk of injection (as with any injection procedure). Because of the biocompatibility of hyaluronic acid, Juvederm carries little risk of allergic reaction.
