JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body that provides fullness and volume to the skin. By both hydrating and augmenting the soft tissue of the dermis, it effectively fills in marionette lines and nasolabial folds (lines around the mouth) leaving your skin smooth and natural.
How Juvederm Works
In a simple 15 minute office visit Dr. Greenberg eases Juvederm under the skin using a fine needle to augment, or fill, the soft tissue of the dermis-the dense inner layer of skin beneath the epidermis-to add volume and diminish wrinkles and folds. There is no recovery time required, so you can return to your daily activities immediately afterwards. Juvederm injectable gel is used most effectively for those wrinkles and folds in the lower third of your face, like your "laugh lines," "smile lines" or "parentheses" (nasolabial folds), or "marionette lines" (oral commissures).
