Juvederm injectable gel is a smooth gel filler eased under your skin to smooth out unwanted wrinkles or folds. The results aren’t just instant, but also they are so smooth and natural that everyone will notice but no one will know. There are two types of Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus. Dr. Whetstone will discuss which Juvederm is right for you.
Juvederm injectable gel is produced through Hylacross technology creating a high debree of cross–linking and promoting duration for up to 6 months or longer. Hylacross technology results in a smooth consistency gel, which is a primary factor in the long-lasting, smooth, natural look and feel that is a hallmark of Juvederm wrinkle correction.
With time, exposure to the sun and other elements, skin components break down and the skin loses struction and volume. Unwelcome lines and wrinkles then appear. We can now correct wrinkles and facial fols, reversing the signs of aging.
The appearance of wrinkles and facial folds can be smoothed by adding volume underneath which then brings sunken skin back up to the surface. This is done by injecting materials into the skin, to achieve a temporary effect.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural complex sugar found in all living cells and one of the major components of the dermis connective tissue, along with collagen and elastin. Hyaluronic acid retains water like a sponge and absorbs more than 1000 time its weight. This helps to maintain water and hydrates your skin, which increases its volume and density.
