What is JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel?

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

Available at our med spa in San Antonio, 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 uses 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” wrinkles (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).

The Procedure

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.
