La Fontaine Aesthetics is proud to be a preferred provider for the treatments of Juvederm® . Recently approved by the FDA, Juvederm® injectable gel is a “next-generation” dermal filler. The smooth consistency gel helps to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your ‘smile lines’ or ‘parentheses’ (the creases that run from the bottom of yout nose to the corners of your mouth).
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a smooth consistency gel made of croos-linked hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin. Natural and biodegradable, Juvederm® is made from a non-animal source that results in a flowing and malleable gel. Juvederm® is softer and smoother than Restylane®. I like to use Juvederm® in the lips and the under-eye hollows, where as, Restylane® offers more support in the nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
How Juvederm® works
Juvederm® injectable gel is a non-surgical, minimal downtime, physician -administered treatment for facial lines. A fine needle is used to place Juvederm® beneath the skin to add volume and diminish wrinkles. Results can be seen instantly and can last longer than 6 months. Common areas treated include the laugh lines (on the side of your mouth), the nasolabial lines (from nose to the side of your mouth) and the marionette lines (from the corners of your mouth downwards).
What is the treatment like?
Juvederm® is a non-surgical treatment, with minimal downtime. Most treatments are performed in the office and can last about 20 minutes. Pain is minimized with topical numbing cream or local anesthesia.
