JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel
JUVÉDERM® is an injectable gel that replaces the hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally hydrating substance in the skin, that’s loss as we age. JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel adds volume augmentation for the lips, deep folds, and facial lines. JUVÉDERM® is a non-animal based substance, making it a safe alternative for those patients allergic to collagen. Results are apparent almost immediately. JUVÉDERM® is a smooth-consistency HA gel that is FDA approved to last up to a year.
Restylane® is also an FDA approved HA gel that is an excellent alternative treatment filler for lip enhancement, and facial wrinkles and folds. This filler is also used for volume augmentation, however, repeat treatments are suggested every 6 months. Results from Restylane® are apparent almost immediately and typically, last much longer than collagen.
