Ridding your face of wrinkles is no longer just a dream. Injectable fillers are desirable to many people who want smoother skin with a more youthful appearance. These fillers work to restore a rejuvenated and wrinkle-free look to your face.
What Is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is one the most popular injectable dermal fillers. It is made with hyaluronic acid – a substance naturally made in our own bodies. When injected into the skin, it smooths wrinkles, adds volume, and fills in deep set lines and hollowed areas. JUVÉDERM® works best to turn back the clock on nasolabial folds (laugh lines formed from your mouth up to your nose) and facial wrinkles. One of our Chicago providers will gently ease the JUVÉDERM® gel under the skin in the target area. The injectable gel will instantly smooth away folds and wrinkles, as well as restore volume to the skin. JUVÉDERM® is also especially useful as a lip augmenter and can even be used to diminish facial scarring, such as acne scars. When compared with other collagen-based fillers, studies have shown with JUVÉDERM® produces superior results.
