What is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® injectable gel is a smooth gel filler your provider eases under your skin to instantly smooth out those wrinkles or folds that look like parentheses along the side of your nose and mouth. Not only are the results instant, they’re also smooth and natural. Everyone will notice, but no one will know.
Your healthcare professional can tell you which JUVÉDERM® formulation is right for you: JUVÉDERM® Ultra injectable gel, optimally formulated for versatility in contouring and volumizing wrinkles and folds, or JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus, a robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper wrinkles and folds. Look smooth and natural with JUVÉDERM® injectable gel.
The appearance of wrinkles and facial folds can be smoothed by adding structure and volume underneath and bringing sunken skin back up to the surface. Generally, this is done by injecting materials into the skin to achieve a temporary effect. When administered by a trained healthcare professional, you can be sure that the materials have been proven safe to use. One example is hyaluronic acid.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural complex sugar found in all living cells, and one of the major components of the dermis connective tissue matrix, along with collagen and elastin.
HA retains water like a sponge, absorbing more than 1,000 times its weight. This helps to attract and maintain water, which hydrates your skin and increases its volume and density.
Allergan, Inc., has found ways to produce, purify, and package HA to make it available for wrinkle correction.
What Makes JUVÉDERM® Different?
JUVÉDERM® injectable gel is produced through HYLACROSS™ technology, which creates a high degree of cross-linking and promotes duration for up to 6 months 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 JUVÉDERM® wrinkle correction.
What Happens During and After JUVÉDERM® Treatment?
Your healthcare professional will assess your facial wrinkles and folds to determine if JUVÉDERM® treatment is right for you. Wrinkle correction with JUVÉDERM® is a quick, in-office procedure with immediate results. Common side effects with JUVÉDERM® injectable gel usually are mild. Some redness and bruising may occur.
