As you age, your skin changes. For example, it reduces the production of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). Over time, the loss of HA in your skin results in facial wrinkles and folds, like those “parentheses” lines around your mouth. That’s why Joseph A. Russo MD in Boston Juvederm is used to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
What makes Juvederm different?
While other HA fillers on the market have a more granular consistency, Juvederm injectable gel is the first smooth-consistency HA gel. This is due to an innovative manufacturing process called HYLACROSS technology. HYLACROSS gives Juvederm its unique smooth-gel properties as well as an optimal gel structure that holds up over time. That’s why Juvederm injectable gel is the only HA filler that’s FDA approved to last up to a year.
What can I expect during and after a Juvederm injectable gel treatment? Wrinkle correction with Juvederm is a quick, in-office procedure with immediate results and no downtime. Common side effects with Juvederm injectable gel usually are mild or moderate. Patients who are using substances that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, as with any injection, may experience increased bruising or bleeding at injection site. You should inform your physician before treatment if you are using these types of substances.
