If you have noticed deep wrinkles in the folds on the side of your mouth, or are concerned about the vertical lines between your eyebrows, you may be a candidate for a dermal filler injection. The most common filler is JuvedermTM.
Juvederm is a dermal filler that does not require allergy testing. Juvederm is injected in the office, and should last about 6 to 9 months. Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid, so no allergy testing is needed – you can get an injection on your first office visit. The only drawback is that you will need approximately 8 to 10 injections over the next five years to get long-lasting results.
