Juvederm™ injectable gel is indicated for injection into the mid-to-deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and is generally well tolerated. The recommended treatment areas of Juvederm™ are forehead lines, nasolabial folds, vertical lip lines, oral commissures, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles.Juvederm™ injectable gel works by instantly filling in and smoothing out wrinkles and folds that look like parentheses along the side of your nose and mouth, creating a smooth, natural look and feel. Juvederm™ dermal fillers can deliver sustained results lasting up to 1 year.
The most commonly reported side effects are temporary injection-site redness, swelling, pain/tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps, and bruising. Exposure of the treated area to excessive sun and extreme cold weather should be minimized until any initial swelling and redness have resolved. If laser treatment, chemical peel, or any other procedure based on active dermal response is considered after treatment of Juvederm™ injectable gel, there is a possible risk of inflammatory reaction at the treatment site.
Everyone’s skin ages differently and JUVEDERM™ may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas. From smile lines to vertical lip lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours. When administered by an experienced physician, you can still smile, frown, and look surprise while glowing with confidence.
