Another injectable filler option that Dr. Anitha Reddy, Medical Director of M.D. Aesthetics and Wellness Institute in Tampa Florida, offers is JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel. From the creators of BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel is designed to restore the youthful skin that has been diminished by age and other skin changes. JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. The injectable gel filler is a “next generation” dermal filler that is FDA approved.
As a non-surgical procedure, Dr. Reddy offers JUVEDERM®. Using JUVEDERM® is a straight-forward procedure. First Dr. Reddy 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 types of dermal fillers, JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel provides a smooth, natural, noticeable look and feel.
There are 3 different types of JUVEDERM® Injectable Gels and Dr. Reddy will discuss which areas will bring the best results to your face. The most common areas where JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel is used are:
- Nasolabial folds (the lines just lateral to the mouth/nose)
- Marionette lines (the lines just below the lip corners)
- Tear trough (area along the orbital rim)
A JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel advantage is its pliant gel consistency, which often provides a smoother, more natural-looking appearance than some of its more rigid predecessors. According to Dr. Reddy, another advantage to using JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel is it can 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. Reddy to determine if JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel is right for you. She will speak with you about your specific goals and show you how you can obtain a smoother, youthful looking face. Contact us or call us today 813-855-5600.
