These products and techniques are used to treat depressions of the skin caused by aging, scars due to trauma, surgery, infection, illness or injury, or wrinkles that occur with the aging process.
The advanced dermal fillers which we use today provide longer lasting results than earlier products. Each of the dermal fillers has its own unique characteristics which are used to contour specific areas of the face and body.
As you age, your skin changes. There is loss of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid. This results in facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm is an injectable gel that replaces the hyaluronic acid your skin has lost, bringing back the normal volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
Because Juvederm is a gel, the result is a soft and smooth consistency in the injected area. This is obviously advantageous in most structures such as the lips. The concentrated Juvederm gel is the only hyaluronic acid filler that is FDA approved to last up to one year.
Juvederm is frequently used in the nasolabial folds, depressions along the lower eyelid margin, and facial wrinkles.
