JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel
JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler from Allergan the company that introduced BOTOX® Cosmetic to the market.
While BOTOX® Cosmetic is widely used to relax muscles and give skin a smoother appearance, JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is recommended to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles, deep frown lines and folds around the nose and mouth.
Results last up to 9 months and can be made to last even longer with a simple follow-up treatment a few weeks after the initial injection.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that has been clinically proven to replenish volume lost to the aging process and genetic characteristics.
Characteristic of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, over time they are absorbed by the body and need to be replenished.
One to two touch-ups per year are recommended and should be considered part of a regularly established skin care regimen.
