Juvederm Injectable Gel
BOTOX® injectable botulinum toxin is the leading non-surgical anti-wrinkle treatment in the country. In 2008, over 2.4 million patients received botulinum injections. However, there are a variety of other dermal injections available to treat fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, frown lines, acne scars, forehead creases, dark under eye circles, and even plump lips or rejuvenate skin. JUVÉDERM® is a hyaluronic acid-based gel used to literally fill in wrinkles and refresh skin’s youthful appearance.
JUVÉDERM’s® filler gel plumps weak and deteriorating skin tissues to temporarily compensate for reduced collagen and loss of skin elasticity. A beneficial effect of JUVÉDERM’s® natural-based formula and mechanism is that it can also be used to plump lips and correct fat loss in the face. Botulinum toxin can only be used cosmetically to correct wrinkles but has other beneficial medical uses such as treatment of migraines and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).
