Juverderm® Facial Filler by Dr. Michael Wolfeld New York
When we are young our skin is smooth and elastic with a healthy glow. As we age, our ability to maintain that smoothness and elasticity diminishes, resulting in skin that becomes drier, thinner and less able to replenish itself. Our body's natural collagen and hyaluronic acid levels decrease and our skin becomes looser. This leads to our skin wrinkling and appearing older than it should.
Juvederm® Ultra and Juvederm® Ultra Plus are hyaluronic acid fillers that replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the skin by smoothing facial wrinkles and folds. They are very ‘smooth’ fillers that provide a very natural result. Juvederm® comes in two formulations—Juvederm® Ultra and Juvederm® Ultra Plus; the main difference is that Ultra Plus has a stiffer consistency. Juvederm® Ultra and Juvederm® Ultra Plus injectable gels are indicated for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases running from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth), the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows), the marionette lines (the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline), and the lips. Juvederm® Ultra is an excellent choice for lip augmentation, due to its soft consistency. This produces plump, natural-appearing lips that do not appear stiff and overdone.
When used for lips or facial contouring, Juvederm® will add shape and volume to the area. Juverderm® is able to create volume under your wrinkles, which are then lifted up and smoothed out. Dr. Wolfeld will discuss your individual desires and goals in formulating a Juvederm® treatment plan that suits you best.
Since no pre-testing is required, a filler treatment can be performed almost immediately. It usually takes about 30 minutes depending on the type of correction you want. Most people find the injections relatively painless, but a topical anesthetic can be applied to the area prior to your treatment. You will be able to see the results as soon as your treatment is completed. While patients should expect correction to persist at least four to six months, in some patients results from Juvederm® may last up to 1 year. However, this can vary from patient to patient.
Juvederm® is a clear transparent gel composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found throughout your body. Hyaluronic acid gives volume to your skin with a low chance of any side effects.
Juvederm® treatment provides a soft, supple correction that gives you a very natural, youthful result. If you are ready to get beautiful, long-lasting results with Juvederm® cosmetic filler, you may schedule a private consultation with Dr. Wolfeld by calling 212-281-1000.
