Dr. Stephen Delia appreciates that every treatment or procedure is not suitable for every patient. Therefore he offers several different facial fillers to help reduce the signs of facial aging and wrinkles. One of these fillers is JUVÉDERM® ,also known as JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel
What is JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel?
From the creators of Botox® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel was designed to restore the youthful skin that has been diminished by age, sun exposure and other factors. JUVÉDERM® is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration.
This non-surgical procedure is not a substitute for facial surgery but can instantly restore your skin’s volume and help smooth away facial wrinkles and folds; “smile lines”, or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). JUVÉDERM® provides a smooth, natural, look and feel.
JUVÉDERM® can be used on several areas of your face. Dr. Delia will discuss which areas will provide the most improvement. The most common areas where JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is used are:
- Nasolabial folds (the lines just lateral to the mouth/nose)
- Marionette lines (the lines just below the lip corners)
- Tear trough (area along the orbital rim)
According to Dr. Delia, another advantage of using JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is, it may last longer than collagen fillers, maintaining the improved appearance for up to six to nine months.
We invite you to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Delia to determine if JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is right for you.
