Westlake Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery in Austin was awarded Black Diamond status in the Allergan Partner Program, indicating that we are in the top 1% of Allergan partner accounts in the nation. Allergan is the maker of BOTOX Cosmetic and Juvederm.
Juvederm® Injectable Gel is the “next generation” of dermal fillers. Created by Allergan – the manufacturer of Botox®, Juvederm provides a smooth, long-lasting correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Dermal fillers are used to restore volume and fullness to the skin, giving a healthy, youthful appearance.
How does Juvederm® work?
Juvederm® contains the highest concentration of non-animal, cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any dermal filler currently available. It is currently the only approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in patients of color.
Juvederm® is developed using the proprietary Hylacross technology, a technologically advanced manufacturing process that results in a malleable, smooth gel that flows easily into the skin and creates a smooth, natural look and feel. All other currently approved hyaluronic acid dermal fillers utilize a gel particle suspension formulation. These gel particles can be seen under magnification as opposed to the smooth formulation used in Juvederm®.
Juvederm® is available in two formulations to allow for a tailored treatment to your unique needs. Juvederm® Ultra provides versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles.
How is a Juvederm® treatment performed?
Juvederm® is administered in a smooth-flowing injection, allowing your provider a high level of control for individualized, tailored facial contouring and for achieving a smooth, natural look. The procedure is simple and quick, and the results are practically instantaneous. Numbing cream may be used before the treatment to optimize your comfort during the short procedure. We also offer the option of Juvederm® XC, which is formulated with Lidocaine for a more comfortable experience.
How long does Juvederm last?
Juvederm® typically provides optimal results with a single treatment. Juvederm® is the only hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved to last up to one year.
What areas can be treated with Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is most commonly used to correct smile lines, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines (lines formed near the chin). It can also help to define the lip border and give the appearance of a fuller lip.
