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!
Juvederm ® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration.. Your healthcare professional eases Juvederm ® injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
Juvederm ® provides 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.
What makes JUVEDERM different?
Jevederm injectable gel is produced through Hylacross technology creating a high degree of cross-linking and promoting duration for up to 6 months or longer. Hylacross technology results in a smooth consistency gel, which is a primary factor in the long-lasting, smooth, natural look and feel that is a hallmark of Juvederm wrinkle correction.
What will it accomplish?
Juvederm Ultra injectable gel will help to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last about six months.
What should I expect following the procedure?
Your medical practitioner will tell you what to expect following treatment with Juvederm Ultra injectable gel. Within the first 24 hours, you should avoid strenuous exercise, extensive sun or heat exposure, and alcoholic beverages. Exposure to any of the above may cause temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the injection sites. If there is swelling, you may need to place an ice pack over the swollen area. You should ask your physician when makeup may be applied after your treatment.
Does the correction last forever?
No, correction is temporary; therefore, touch-up injections as well as repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal correction.
