JUVÉDERM® is a dermal filler (also referred to as an injectable gel filler) designed to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and soften the appearance of facial folds. This FDA-approved filler can be used for a variety of goals, including achieving fuller lips, smoothening the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and lifting and contouring cheeks that have lost volume due to age. JUVÉDERM can be provided in conjunction with several other cosmetic treatments, such as BOTOX®.
What is it that makes JUVEDERM such a great non-surgical option for restoring your skin? Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is a natural substance in the body that delivers volume to the skin. Modified HA is the main ingredient behind JUVÉDERM®, which is what makes the treatment so effective for rejuvenating the skin.
Before administering JUVÉDERM, a local anesthetic or topical cream may numb the area. Then a very fine needle guides the gel just under the dermal layer and into the treatment area. Since dermal fillers are a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure, recovery time is minimal and you should be able to go back to work following treatment. Even better, results are immediate.
Many patients wonder what the difference is between BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM. BOTOX targets lines and wrinkles that are present during facial movement, such as crow’s feet and forehead lines. JUVÉDERM is a dermal filler that focuses on areas that lack volume while the face is at rest. Visit our BOTOX page to learn more.
