Our skin changes as we age. Over time, wrinkles and folds form and the natural volume of youthful skin begins to fade. However, this can be prevented with JUVÉDERM. JUVÉDERM is an FDA approved injectable gel that is a “next-generation” dermal filler. This smooth consistency gel aids in restoring your skin’s volume and smoothens facial wrinkles and folds. It helps get rid of “smile lines” and “parentheses” (nasolabial folds – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). JUVÉDERM is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance in your skin that adds volume and hydration. JUVÉDERM is eased under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel that everyone will notice.
JUVÉDERM injectable gel is the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has been FDA approved and is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color. The injection process takes about 45 minutes and results are immediate, and there’s virtually no down time. Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus are injected into the mid to deep dermis for correction of medium to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Side effects are usually mild to moderate and include temporary injection site reactions like redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps.
