Juvéderm TM injectable gel is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment. Your healthcare professional eases Juvéderm TM 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. Juvéderm TM 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).
Juvéderm TM is a "next-generation" filler. It is made from hyaluronic acid -a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to hydrate and add volume. Hyaluronic acid may diminish with age, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm TM injectable gel works to correct this by restoring hyaluronic acid in your skin, helping to smooth wrinkles and folds.
