JUVÉDERM is the smooth gel filler that Dr. Thakur uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking with the improved comfort you want.
Juvéderm is FDA approved for treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and creases. We typically use Juvederm to reduce the appearance of the nasolabial folds – the “smile lines” that travel from your nose to each side of your mouth.
Juvéderm has also been used to treat conditions such as these:
Marionette lines – lines that extend downward from the mouth
Sunken cheeks – age related loss of facial volume
Hollowness under the eyes
Everyone will notice, but no one will know. A precise injection of Juvéderm can be really effective in correcting such age-related imperfections, so your skin maintains its youthful volume.
Using a fine needle, Dr. Thakur injects Juvéderm into the tissue at a specified depth. Anesthetic or nerve blocks can be used to manage discomfort during treatment. In fact, many Juvéderm treatments are actually pain-free. After injection, the area may be massaged to ensure a smooth result. The treated area may feel fuller than normal right after treatment, but this condition should resolve on its own quickly.
Although the cosmetic results of Juvéderm treatment will typically last about 6 months, many patients (about 80 percent) can benefit from a follow-up treatment a few weeks later. This will ensure a longer lasting, more satisfying cosmetic improvement.
Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds – like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth.
Using a dermal filler like JUVÉDERM is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
