What is JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel?

As we age, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form.

JUVÉDERM® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases JUVÉDERM® injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).

The Procedure

Dr. Ayala performs brow and forehead lifts to raise eyebrows and reduce ridges and furrows on the forehead, thus creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. Browlifts are usually combined with other procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and facelifts to improve the look of the eyes and overall appearance of the face.

With JUVÉDERM® the injection process takes only about 30 minutes and results are immediate. The nurse will apply a topical anesthetic in order to numb the treatment area and make injections more comfortable. Next, she will inject Juvéderm under the skin where your wrinkles and folds occur.

Because there is minimal recovery or downtime, you can step into your doctor’s office for treatment and step right back into your life.

Like Juvéderm™ Ultra, Juvéderm™ Ultra Plus is used to improve facial contours and diminish lines, and is specifically formulated to correct deeper wrinkles and folds, such as the nasolabial folds, which form between the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth.

Results last for up to one year, and with follow-up treatments can last even longer.
