How Does Juvederm Injectable Gel Work?
Juvederm injectable gel is infused with lidocaine to reduce discomfort during this effective cosmetic treatment. Juvederm injectable gel acts like a sponge by creating volume in the face by holding moisture in. Juvederm injectable gel uses the body’s own internal moisturizer, hyaluronic acid to keep the skin moist and full. With age, the amount of hyaluronic acid that the body produces tends to diminish. Juvederm injectable gel works to restore hyaluronic acid in your skin and helps to reduce wrinkles and nasolabial folds (commonly known as laugh lines or smile lines).
About the Juvederm Injectable Gel Procedure
Juvederm injectable gel treatment is a nonsurgical, physician-administered procedure for nasolabial folds (laugh lines / smile lines) and other facial wrinkles. Dr. Schwartz injects Juvederm injectable gel under the skin using a fine needle to fill the soft tissue of the skin. Juvederm injectable gel adds volume and lessens the appearance of wrinkles and smile lines instantly.
