While BOTOX Cosmetic is widely used to relax muscles and give skin a smoother appearance, JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel is recommended to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles, deep frown lines and folds around the nose and mouth.
Juvéderm is a brand new injectable filler made of a substance called “hyaluronic acid”, but it is different in that it is much easier and less painful to have administered.
Juvederm is the next generation of hyaluronic acid dermal filler. It provides a smooth, long-lasting correction of facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm contains the highest concentration of non-animal based, highly cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any dermal filler currently available. The smooth consistency gel helps to instantly restore your skin’s volume and hydration to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds like “smile lines” or “parentheses.” The unique formulation of Juvederm seems to result in a longer duration of effect, around 7-9 months.
One to two touch-ups per year are recommended and should be considered part of a regularly established skin care regimen.
