Juvéderm is a dermal filler composed of hyaluronic acid gel, a substance that naturally occurs in the facial tissues.
The intended use of the product is to temporarily enhance lips, restore facial volume, and reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, folds and other visible signs of aging.
To precisely meet the needs of each individual patient, Juvéderm is available in two formulas: Juvéderm Ultra and Juvéderm Ultra Plus, with the latter formula made for deeper wrinkles or folds.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring chemical in the body that gives volume to the skin and hydrates the tissue. Over the course of time, the body’s supply of hyaluronic acid gets more and more depleted, leading to conditions like wrinkles or a sunken, hollow appearance. The injection of Juvederm can work to correct these signs of aging and restore facial volume.
In 2006, the United States FDA approved Juvéderm for treating mild to moderate facial creases. Anyone concerned about facial wrinkles, lines and folds should consider using Juvéderm. There are a number of related conditions that Juvéderm can treat, but patients should seek a consultation with Dr. Pancholi to discuss possible alternatives.
A thorough consultation is necessary for Dr. Pancholi to understand the expectations, desires and your needs, so he can recommend the best treatment option for you.
During the procedure, Juvéderm is placed beneath the skin and sometimes massaged into place. The entire process may be as brief as 30 minutes. Afterward, you might experience some mild swelling but should be able to return to their normal routine with a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
