The Benefits of Injectable Fillers with a Hyaluronic Acid Base: JUVÉDERM® – Part 3
JUVÉDERM® injections are another popular way to reduce facial wrinkles without having to undergo a surgical face lift (or it may magnify the rejuvenating effects of surgery.) The key ingredient of JUVÉDERM® is also hyaluronic acid, which as was mentioned above, is a major component of the skin and helps skin tissue to maintain its volume and elasticity. It is synthesized somewhat differently from Restylane with a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid. JUVÉDERM®, in both Ultra and Ultra Plus forms, is used as a treatment for moderate to severe wrinkles and facial folds and its effects may last up to a year or longer. JUVÉDERM® now comes in a formulation with a local anesthetic, JUVÉDERM® XC (extra comfort) to minimize discomfort.
Many injectable fillers are now available to help soften facial folds and wrinkles for patients in Conecticut. These can be extremely effective in enhancing the results of facial surgery or providing improvement to areas of concern when one isn’t quite ready for a surgical procedure. Dr. Felice will review the various materials available and their relative advantages.
