As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. To combat these changes, Dr. Lopez and Dr. Perro often uses Juvederm injectable gel. You don’t have to just sit back and let your face show the signs of aging. Approved by the FDA, Juvederm injectable gel is a “next-generation” dermal filler. Dr. Lopez prefers Juvederm for the thinner areas of the face such as the lips and lower eyelids. The smooth consistency gel helps to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds.
Juvederm is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Dr. Lopez and Dr. Perro places Juvederm injectable gel under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel. In fact, studies show superior results of Juvederm compared to collagen-based dermal filler. In addition, Juvederm injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.
