JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel
Facial fillers such as Restylane, Radiesse, Perlane, and Juvederm are naturally occurring gels that are injected into the skin as a “filler” in order to add volume to aging skin, lips and to lift up wrinkles and folds.
If you’re considering treatment for your facial wrinkles and folds, we encourage you to learn about these facial fillers and how they provide structural support and lift to your facial crease, wrinkles and folds. These injectables can be used alone or in combination with Botox to help you reach your goal of a more youthful appearance. The procedures are non-surgical, minimally invasive, and their effects are immediate.
During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will discuss with you the different products available and their different characteristics. They will work with you to choose the right combination of products to maximize your result. Each product is slightly different, lasting various amounts of time.
The procedure consists of injecting the filler directly into your skin in small amounts by an ultrafine needle. As with all injections, some patients may experience discomfort. To increase your comfort, your doctor will assess your need for pain management and determine what technique is right for you.
