A New Cosmetic Injectable With Long-Term Results

Aug 18, 2007
Juvederm, this injectable is creating quite a sensation, since it's the first hyaluronic smooth gel available and produces a longer lasting, young and natural look that patients have long desired. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps to hydrate and add volume to skin.

The desire for products to halt or reverse the aging process of skin is not a new phenomenon. Researchers and physicians have been working on developing ways to restore volume and structure to aging skin for more than a hundred years! In 2003 the FDA approved the first hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler, and according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers are the fastest growing non-invasive procedure in the United States. (Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps to hydrate and add volume to skin.)

Early in 2007, a new cosmetic injectable filler, Juvederm, was FDA-approved and introduced in the United States dermatology market. This injectable is creating quite a sensation, since it's the first hyaluronic smooth gel available and produces a longer lasting, young and natural look that patients have long desired. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps to hydrate and add volume to skin.

When looking at the growing choices in filler injectables, the new Juvederm is surely one to consider. This recently-released product contains the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any dermal filler currently available; further, it's malleable and smooth, and is the least likely of all fillers to produce any lumpiness. This is due to advances realized through state-of-the-art technology, which renders its gel particle suspension formulation superior to many other products.

Dermal fillers like Juvederm are a great way to address facial lines and wrinkles without surgery, if you aren't dealing with excess laxity of the skin (if skin is too lax, surgery is a better option). There are two types of Juvederm products. One is called "Ultra" and the other is called "Ultra Plus." Both types offer the benefit of the new smooth product. The "Ultra" product provides versatility in contouring and volumizing of facial wrinkles and folds. The "Ultra Plus" product is a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles. Both products deliver results that last up to six months and sometimes longer.

Juvederm is generally tolerated quite well, so if you are considering a cosmetic injectable, this is one product you'll want to discuss thoroughly with your doctor. As with all cosmetic procedures, you only want the injection to be administered by a qualified health care professional. Experienced, board-certified physicians have an in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy and are versed in all the different injectable products available. Their medical experience and knowledge will benefit you in both physical safety and desired outcome.

Note: The specific risks and the suitability of Juvederm for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation with a physician. All procedures have some degree of risk. The information provided here is not a substitute for a consultation.
