Juvederm is a hyaluronic-acid wrinkle filler designed to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Surgeons all over the United States prefer Juvederm for its smooth, non-animal composition and attractive results.
At Advanced Cosmetic Surgery, we use Juvederm as indicated by FDA guidelines, for treating nasolabial folds. Other uses may include the following:
- Treatment of marionette lines
- Treatment of tear trough deformities
- Lip augmentation
- Treatment of sunken mid face tissues
- Treatment of glabellar lines or forehead lines
There are two formulations of Juvederm - Ultra and Ultra plus. Ultra is used for the majority of applications, treating moderate facial wrinkles and folds. Ultra plus is great for adding volume and treating deep wrinkles.
With a fine needle, Dr. Frenzel injects Juvederm into facial areas that need augmentation. Pain is very minimal and can be reduced with topical anesthesia. Immediately after treatment, patients may experience some swelling and bruising, and may look fuller than expected. These issues will resolve rapidly, at which point you’ll be able to appreciate the aesthetic improvements of Juvederm.
To get optimum results, we will often use Juvederm in conjunction with Botox Cosmetic.
