Anti-aging Treatment: Juvederm

Juvederm is popular wrinkle filler that can help plump up the skin and eliminate the appearance of fine lines around the eyes or remove deeper wrinkles around the mouth. A series of Juvederm injections can give your face a more youthful appearance, and can also be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures to get the results you want.

Juvéderm injectable gel is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment. Juvéderm is eased under the skin using a fine needle to augment, or fill, the soft tissue of the dermis-the dense inner layer of skin beneath the epidermis-to add volume and diminish wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm injectable gel is used most effectively for those wrinkles and folds in the lower third of your face, like your “laugh lines”, “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds), or “marionette lines” (oral commissures).

Juvéderm™ is a “next-generation” filler. It is made from hyaluronic acid-a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to hydrate and add volume. Hyaluronic acid may diminish with age, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm™ injectable gel works to correct this by restoring hyaluronic acid in your skin, helping to smooth wrinkles and folds.

Prices vary according to the size and number of areas being treated, but Juvederm treatment typically costs $300 or more per injection. Juvederm costs will also vary according to doctor.
