Lines and wrinkles form in the face for many reasons. A lifetime of facial motion and sun exposure as well as a genetic predisposition all contribute. Depending on the area of the face and the type of wrinkle involved, a particular type of injectable may give you an amazing result.
Soft tissue fillers are injectable gels that provide more volume to the face and the hands to smooth the appearance of wrinkles and folds. There are many types of fillers and we can help you determine which is best for you. Treatments are recommended every 6-12 months for optimum results.
Juvéderm™ injectable gel is a next-generation dermal filler. It is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially those around the nose and mouth, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds: the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
Over recent years, hyaluronic acid has emerged as what some call a “miracle compound” for filling in wrinkles and facial contouring. New studies show how crossed-linked hyaluronic acid promotes collagen deposition in the deeper part of the skin, which helps thicken the skin and provide more longevity. Meaning, it temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face that feels very natural.
Juvéderm™ is a hyaluronic acid in the form of viscoelastic gel, which is transparent and homogeneous. That gives it four major benefits:
• It is obtained by bacterial fermentation and is of non-animal origin
• It does not require prior skin testing
• It is highly biocompatible
Based on your specific needs and desired results, you will be treated with one of the following formulations:
• Juvéderm™ Ultra is a highly cross-linked formulation with versatility in contouring and giving volume to facial wrinkles and
• Juvéderm™ Ultra Plus is a more robust formulation used for adding volume and correction to deeper folds and wrinkles.
