For patients who have fine lines and wrinkles that are deeper or fixed-“static wrinkles”-our physicians may recommend the use of a non-surgical cosmetic treatment option called a ”dermal filler”. Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm™ act to “plump up” and “fill out” wrinkles. Juvéderm™ has undergone extensive testing and have received FDA approval in the United States. Juvéderm™ is derived from a substance called Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is a proven biocompatible material. Hyaluronic Acid has historically been used during cataract surgery for over 25 years due to its high level of compatibility with living tissue. Thus the use of Hyaluronic Acid has proven to be quite safe. Juvéderm™ is injected into the deeper fixed wrinkles pretty much anywhere on the face including the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the lips and in the crease between your nose and mouth. By “layering’ the injection, our physicians can achieve remarkable results in eliminating or diminishing static wrinkles. The effects of Juvéderm™ may last from 3 to 12 months depending on the area and the amount injected.
