As you age, your skin changes. For example, it reduces 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. Juvéderm™ injectable gel replaces the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
What makes Juvéderm™ different?
While other HA fillers on the market have a more granular consistency, Juvéderm™ injectible gel is the first smooth-consistency HA gel. This is due to an innovative manufacturing process called HYLACROSS technology. HYLACROSS gives Juvéderm™ its unique smooth-gel properties as well as an optimal gel structure that holds up over time. That’s why Juvéderm™ 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 Juvéderm™ injectable gel treatment? Wrinkle correction with Juvéderm™ is a quick, in-office procedure with immediate results and no downtime. Common side effects with Juvéderm™ 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.
