Juvederm Injectable Gel is a long-lasting, soft-tissue filler, made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. This smooth gel filler is placed directly under the skin, instantly smoothing fine wrinkles and severe facial folds. Juvederm can also be used to successfully restore lost facial volume, sculpting features and improving facial symmetry.
The unique injectible is created using Juvederm’s cutting-edge Hylacross technology, providing the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid available, in an extremely smooth gel formula. This allows for minimal discomfort during the injection process, along with natural and long-lasting results.
Good candidates for Juvederm Injectable Gel can include both men and women. Anyone desiring an improvement in the early signs of aging, such as wrinkles, deep facial folds, and a loss of volume may see significant results with Juvederm. The injectible is safe for all ages, ethnicities, and skin types.
*Each patient is unique and individual results may vary.
There is no downtime needed after Juvederm injections, meaning patients are free to return to work and other routine activities immediately. The benefits of Juvederm can be seen right away and will last for six to twelve months.
During your Juvederm consultation at Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery, additional techniques and physician-grade products may be recommended, helping you to achieve optimal facial rejuvenation.
