JUVÉDERM® is the latest dermal filler advance from Allergan, makers of BOTOX® Cosmetic (Botulinum Toxin Type A), it is a ‘next generation’ smooth gel, non-animal dermal filler offering a natural look/feel and long-lasting results for up to six months or longer. At cosmetic center of Irvine, we offer Juvéderm® in two forms so we can tailor treatment to your unique need.
* JUVÉDERM® dermal filler ultra, a highly cross linked formulation for more versatility in “contouring and volumizing” of facial wrinkle and folds.
* JUVÉDERM® dermal filler ultra plus, a more highly cross linked robust formulation for volumizing and correction of deeper folds and wrinkles.
Over recent years, hyaluronic acid (HA) has emerged as the miracle compound for filling in wrinkles. HA is a natural substance that is found throughout your body. It gives volume to the skin, lubricates the joints and gives the eyes their shape. HA is a naturally occurring substance (complex sugar) found throughout the body in all living organisms. In the skin, HA fills the space between collagen and elastin fibers — replenishing the natural support layers lost with aging — while delivering essential nutrients and hydration. Over time, HA is gradually reabsorbed in the body. The active ingredient in JUVÉDERM® dermal filler, hyaluronic acid, is a naturally occurring, biodegradable complex sugar found in the human body and in all living organisms. Among other things, hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin and adds volume, contributing to the overall appearance of the skin.
Like BOTOX®, which has been available for more than 16 years and is approved to treat 20 conditions in more than 75 countries around the world, hyaluronic acid has been used for more than 20 years to treat multiple medical conditions, including those associated with the eye and the knee.
