Another injectable filler option that is offered at Dr. Kerluke’s practice is JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel. From the creators of BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel was designed to restore the youthful skin that has been diminished by age and other skin changes.
The injectable gel filler, is a “next generation” dermal filler that has been FDA approved. JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration.
As a non-surgical procedure, Dr. Leslie Kerluke offers the filler. Dr. Kerluke will gently ease JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel under the skin into the mid to deep dermis of the face to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, “smile lines”, or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Unlike many collagen-based dermal fillers, juvederm Injectable Gel provides a smooth, natural, noticeable look and feel.
There are 3 different types of JUVEDERM® Injectable Gels and Dr. Kerluke will discuss which areas will bring the best results to your face. The most common areas where JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel is used are:
A JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel advantage is its pliant gel consistency, which may provide a smoother, more natural-looking appearance than some of its more rigid predecessors. According to Dr. Kerluke, another advantage to using JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel is it may last longer than collagen fillers, maintaining the improved appearance for six to nine months, if you have follow-up treatment a few weeks after the first treatment.
We invite you to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Kerluke and his staff to determine if JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel is right for you. They will speak with you about your specific goals and show you how you can obtain a smoother, youthful looking face.
