No one should have to feel like their skin is aging faster than their body. Thanks to JUVÉDERM I just look my age. And my theory is, when I find something that works, I want to share it. That’s why I’m talking freely about my JUVÉDERM treatments….I love the results of Juvederm. I’ve also used Botox Cosmetic which has provided great results as well!
We perform Juvederm injections in my practice quite often. It injects very nicely, and some studies have shown longevity of the product for a year. Overall, my only complaint about Juvederm is that the syringe size is 0.8 cc, and not 1.0 cc like Restylane. There are so many other fillers on the market nowadays (including Perlane, Prevelle, Artifill, Radiesse, and several others) that it’s easy for a patient to be confused about what to use. An easy recommendation for patients is that you can’t go wrong starting out with Restylane or Juvederm, as these are the two ‘workhorses’ of filler products, in my opinion. Some of the other fillers are more ‘niche’ players (kind of like a doubles specialist in tennis).
