Parentheses have a place…but NOT on your face!
As you age, your skin changes. For example, it reduces production of a naturally hydrating substance called “hyaluronic acid (HA)”. Over time, 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. A breakthrough in HA dermal fillers, JUVÉDERM® is the first smooth-consistency HA gel and the only HA filler that’s FDDA approved to last up to a year!
What Makes JUVÉDERM® different?
While other HA fillers on the market have a more granular consistency, JUVÉDERM® injectable 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 1 year.
High Patient Preference
When JUVÉDERM® was tested in a clinical setting among people who didnt’ know which filler they were getting, nearly 90% stated a preference for JUVÉDERM®. In addition, JUVÉDERM® injectable gel has been tested on all skin phototypes, both male and female, so everyone can enjoy the benefits of JUVÉDERM®.
What You Can Expect During and After JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel Treatment
Wrinkle correction with JUVÉDERM® is a quick, in-office procedure with immediate results and no downtime. Common side effects are usually mild or moderate. The most commonly reported side effects are temporary injection-site redness, swelling, pain/tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps, and bruising. Exposure of the treated area to excessive sun and extreme cold weather should be minimized until any initial swelling and redness have resolved. If you are taking medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or blood thinners, let your physician know before injection.
JUVÉDERM® should not be used in patients who have severe allergies, or history or presence of multiple severe allergies. JUVÉDERM® should not be used during pregnancy, breastfeeding, or in patients under 18 years of age.
