Juvederm® is a ‘next generation’ family of smooth, long-lasting gel dermal fillers and the latest advance in hyaluronic acid cosmetic filler technology. It is made from hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to hydrate and add volume. Hyaluronic acid may diminish with age, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds. Juvederm® injectible gel works to correct this by restoring hyaluronic acid in your skin, helping to smooth wrinkles and folds.
Juvederm® treatment for wrinkles around the mouth
Juvederm® injectible gel is great for your “laugh lines,” “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds), or “marionette lines” (oral commissures).
- Parentheses lines arc around the corners of the mouth and look somewhat like a set of parentheses. They are the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth.
- Oral commissure lines form at the corner of the mouth where the upper lip meets the lower lip. The oral commissures usually experience a gradual depression over time. In many individuals, the depression contributes to the formation of wrinkles and lines, as well as contributing to a more angry or stern appearance. Oral commissure lines may extend downward from the corners of the mouth giving an individual an unnatural puppet or marionette-type appearance. In other instances, oral commissure lines may fan out from the corner of the mouth.
Hyaluronic dermal filler nonsurgical wrinkle removal procedure
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers like Juvederm® injectible gel offer a safe and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing facial wrinkles and folds. In fact, they are the fastest growing nonsurgical aesthetic procedures in the United States according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. In the body, hyaluronic acid fills the space between collagen and elastin fibers of the skin. It is present in all living cells; attracting and binding water, hydrating and giving the skin smoothness and volume. As the body ages, the ability of the body’s cells to manufacture its own hyaluronic acid is diminished, resulting in the loss of skin volume, producing folds and wrinkles.
Juvederm® is a “next-generation” non-animal dermal filler
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that plays a vital role in hydrating your skin and replenishing its natural volume. Since it is not created from an animal source, there is little chance of allergic reaction. No allergy skin tests are needed prior to receiving treatment. Dr. Simpson eases Juvederm® injectible gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Juvederm® injectible gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.
Remove wrinkles immediately with Juvederm® dermal filler
With Juvederm® the injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate. Plus, there’s minimal recovery or downtime. So you can step into your doctor’s office for treatment and step right back into your life. Juvederm® is injected into the mid to deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds).
Juvederm® dermal filler lasts for 1 year and is FDA approved
Juvederm® is the ONLY hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved* to last up to 1 year. Allergan’s unique manufacturing process provides a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid for long-lasting results. It also creates a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel. Only Juvederm® is so smooth—other hyaluronic acid fillers currently on the market are made of granular consistency gels. These gels utilize a suspension process with particles that can be visibly seen. The particles in Juvederm® gel are so small that it is completely transparent. The smoother formulation makes Juvederm® easier to fill with and should produce more natural, even filling effects with patient discomfort minimized at the injection site.
Juvederm® injectible dermal filler gel is available in two formulations
Allowing Dr. Simpson to tailor treatment to meet your unique needs.
- Juvederm® Ultra for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds
- Juvederm® Ultra Plus is a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles.
