As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. But, with Juvederm™ injectable gel, you don't have to just sit back and let it happen!
What is Juvederm ™:
FDA approved, Juvederm™ injectable gel is a "next-generation" dermal filler. The smooth consistency gel helps to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm™ is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid - a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration.
How It Works:
Your healthcare professional eases Juvederm™ injectable gel under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel - so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! In fact, studies show superior results of Juvederm™ compared to a collagen-based dermal filler.
Types of Juvederm ™:
Juvederm ™ is offered in two formulations: Juvederm ™ Ultra for use in areas where subtle volume enhancement is required, and Juvederm ™ Ultra Plus for correction of severely deep folds and wrinkles.
Juvederm ™ Procedure:
The Juvederm ™ procedure takes about 15 minutes and can easily be fitted into a hectic lifestyle. After injecting Juvederm ™, the treated area is gently massaged.
After Juvederm ™ Procedure:
To avoid the risks of temporary redness, itching or swelling, patients should avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours. Some patients experience injection-related reactions, including redness, pain, firming, swelling, or bumps. These are normally mild and clear up on their own within 7 days. An ice pack applied to the treatment area for a brief period can be used to alleviate these symptoms.
