From the creators of Botox® Cosmetic, JUVEDÉRM® Injectable Gel was designed to restore the youthful skin that has been diminished by age and other skin changes. The injectable gel filler is a “next generation” dermal filler that has been FDA approved. JUVEDÉRM® Injectable Gel is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration.
As a non-surgical procedure, Dr. Zaydon gently eases JUVEDÉRM® Injectable Gel under the skin into the mid to deep dermis of the face to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, “smile lines”, or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Unlike many collagen-based dermal fillers, JUVEDÉRM® Injectable Gel provides a smooth, natural, noticeable look and feel.
There are 3 different types of JUVEDÉRM® Injectable Gels and Dr. Zaydon will discuss which areas will bring the best results to your face. The most common areas where JUVEDÉRM® Injectable Gel is used are:
- Nasolabial folds (the lines just lateral to the mouth/nose)
- Marionette lines (the lines just below the lip corners)
- Tear trough (area along the orbital rim)
A JUVEDÉRM® Injectable Gel advantage is its pliant gel consistency, which may provide a smoother, more natural-looking appearance than some of its more rigid predecessors. According to Dr. Zaydon, another advantage to using JUVEDÉRM® Injectable Gel is that it may last longer than collagen fillers, maintaining the improved appearance for six to nine months, if you have follow-up treatment a few weeks after the first treatment.
