Juvederm is an injectable filler that adds volume to sunken or flattened cheeks, restoring a look of youthful plumpness and lifting sagging cheek skin. This filler is a gel substance that is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurning complex sugar that contributes to the volume and elasticity of the skin. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in all living organisms.
Juvederm injections are typically effective for 9-12 months and is currently one of the only FDA approved cosmetic filler injections in the US. Call us today for more information or to schedule and appointment.
While both Botox and Juvederm are designed to help with the appearance of wrinkles, there are distinct differences in the effects of these treatments. Botox is a procedure designed to block the nerve endings in muscles, cutting down on the movement and expansion of the skin which creates wrinkles. In contrast, Juvederm injections are fillers for your cheecks when the natural contour of the cheek has deteriorated over time. This gap between the skin and bone, creates sagging and wrinkles.
