JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel is a modern dermal filler known for its flexibility. Based on hyaluronic acid, the active ingredient also used in Restylane®, it comes in a variety of formulations for different applications. This versatile product is an effective choice for filling in small, vertical lines around the lips, as well as deeper nasolabial folds. It can also be used for enhancing facial features, such as sculpting cheeks and chin, and adding volume to lips.
JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel works well for men and women from a variety of ethnic backgrounds. The effects last up to about a year.
Wrinkle filler injection treatments are performed in our Long Island, Brooklyn and Manhattan offices. Local anesthesia or topical creams are used to numb the treatment area. Very thin needles are used to gently inject the filler beneath the surface of your skin. Results are typically seen immediately, and you can return to your regular activities the next day.
Risks from injections are very minimal. The most common side effects are bruising at the injection site or swelling of the treatment area. These reactions diminish quickly and can be treated with ice packs or over the counter pain medication.
