Juvéderm™

What Is JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel?

As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. But, with Juvéderm™ injectable gel, you don’t have to just sit back and let it happen!

Juvéderm™ is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases Juvéderm™ injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).

Juvéderm™ provides a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! In fact, studies show superior results of Juvéderm™ compared to a collagen-based dermal filler.†

•Almost 90% of all study volunteers who were treated with both Juvéderm™ injectable gel and another dermal filler† preferred Juvéderm™!

•Juvéderm™ injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.

Immediate Results

With Juvéderm™ the injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate. Plus, there’s minimal recovery or downtime. So you can step into your doctor’s office for treatment and step right back into your life.*

Juvéderm™ is indicated for injection into the mid to deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds).

†The other dermal filler used in this study was ZYPLAST® dermal filler (bovine-based collagen).

“After Treatment, it feels smooth… it feels very natural.  I would definitely b treated again with Juvéderm™.”

Important Safety Information about BOTOX® Cosmetic

Serious heart problems and serious allergic reactions have been reported rarely. If you think you’re having an allergic reaction or other unusual symptoms, such as difficulty swallowing, speaking or breathing, call your doctor immediately. The most common side effects following injection include temporary eyelid droop and nausea. Localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness and/or bleeding/bruising may be associated with the injection. Patients with certain neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome may be at increased risk of serious side effects.

Take a Look at These Lasting Results

You’ve got to see it to believe it—and here you can! Juvéderm™ injectable gel—a “next-generation” smooth consistency gel dermal filler—offers smooth, natural looking and feeling results that can last for up to 1 year.

If you’re planning to talk to your doctor about Juvéderm™, you might want to take pictures of yourself before your first treatment. Then a week later take new pictures so you can see the results. Take pictures again after 3 months, 6 months, and so on. Your doctor might even take your first photos in the office. Chances are, you’ll like what you see!

Perlane

How does Perlane work?

Just like Restylane, Perlane adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).

Like Restylane, Perlane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to add fullness like your body’s own hyaluronic acid.

What makes Perlane different is the average size of the particles and the depth of injection.  On average, the gel particles in Perlane are larger than those in Restylane, which makes Perlane a good choice for wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection into the skin.

In three clinical studies of 150 patients each, on average 70% of patients maintained improvement for six months after just one Perlane treatment.

During your consultation, your healthcare professional will decide which product is right for you.

Restylane

Restylane is an injectable gel which should always administered by a trained, medically qualified practitioner.

Restylane enhances your natural looks by restoring your skin’s volume, creating softness and revitalizing your appearance.

How it works

Youthful skin is rich in hyaluronic acid. As we age, the distribution and function of hyaluronic acid in our skin gradually change, leading to the characteristic signs of aging.

Restylane gels work by enhancing your skin’s own stocks of hyaluronic acid, directly adding volume to either soften the signs of aging or enhance your features.

The procedure is quick. It usually takes less than 30 minutes. The benefits can be seen immediately.

Millions of people have used Restylane with confidence. It is the world’s most widely used product based on hyaluronic acid for esthetic enhancement.

Restylane is safe

Restylane safety and efficacy is proven beyond a doubt, with robust clinical data spanning a decade. Adverse reactions to Restylane are rare.

Restylane is natural

The uniquely produced hyaluronic acid gel of Restylane closely resembles natural

hyaluronic acid. This reduces the risk of an inflammatory reaction or other side effects.

Restylane is long lasting but not permanent

Restylane gives you flexibility and control over your looks. Because your face changes shape as you age, you want to avoid a permanent look you might regret in years to come.

Restylane is nonanimal

In contrast to some other hyaluronic acid-based products, the hyaluronic acid in Restylane is not extracted from animals. This means there is no risk of transmitting disease or eliciting allergic reactions if you are sensitive to common foods, such as chicken and eggs.
Restylane is quick and easy.

Restylane treatment usually fits in well with busy lifestyles, with minimal downtime, and gives results that can be seen instantly.

How Is Restylane Produced?

Restylane is produced by Q-Med AB in Sweden under strict laboratory conditions to obtain a high degree of product purity.

Q-Med is a rapidly growing biotechnology/medical device company. Q-Med develops, produces, markets and sells implants for esthetic and medical use. All products are based on the company’s patented NASHA™ technology.

Patented technology

If you injected hyaluronic acid in its natural form into the body, it would break down in just a few days, and any treatment benefit would be very short-lived. The unique stabilization process patented by Q-Med and used in the manufacture of Restylane results in a hyaluronic acid gel that closely resembles the body’s own hyaluronic acid. This provides long-lasting treatment benefits and minimizes the risk of a skin reaction.

Sculptra®, injectable poly-L-lactic acid

Sculptra®… a sculpting agent that restores volume to correct the signs of facial fat loss

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I need a skin test before being treated with Sculptra®?

A: No skin testing is required prior to use.

Sculptra® is an enduring treatment approved by the FDA for restoration and/or correction of the signs of facial fat loss, or lipoatrophy, in people with human immunodeficiency virus. It is the first FDA-approved product of its kind for this condition.

Facial fat loss, or lipoatrophy, is the loss of fat beneath the skin, which can result in sunken cheeks, indentations, and hollow eyes. Sculptra® is a safe, synthetic, and biocompatible material that is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss. It provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of folds and sunken areas. No skin testing is required.

Sculptra® has been safely used outside the United States since 1999 in over 150,000 patients under the trade names New-Fill™ and Sculptra®.

Q: How many treatments are required?

A: Your healthcare provider will decide the appropriate number of treatment sessions and the amount of Sculptra® you will need at each session. Patients with severe facial fat loss may require 3 to 6 treatment sessions.

Lasting Results

The effects of Sculptra® are enduring. In a clinical study, effects lasted for up to 2 years after the first treatment session in most patients. The results from Sculptra® are not immediate; Sculptra® provides a gradual increase in skin thickness. Your healthcare provider will see you again in a few weeks to decide if additional injections are needed. Touch-up treatments may be needed to maintain the desired effects.

People with mild lipoatrophy will require fewer treatments than those with severe lipoatrophy.
