What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is an injectable, smooth consistency gel filler made from cross-linked hyaluronic acid used to instantly smooth and “fill in” moderate to severe facial lines, furrows and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. It can also be used to decrease the appearance of “smoker’s lines” around the mouth, reduce eye bags, and to rejuvenate and restore volume to the hands. Juvéderm® is the first FDA-approved dermal filler proven to be safe and effective in persons of color with no increased risk of hyperpigmentation or hypertrophic scarring. Juvéderm® comes in two formulations: Juvéderm® Ultra and Juvéderm® Ultra Plus. Our team at VITAHL Chicago will help you determine which formulation is the best fit to help you reach your aesthetic goals. Multiple sessions may be necessary to achieve desired results.

Juvéderm® vs. Botox®, what’s the difference?
Botox® is not a filler, it is a form of botulinum toxin that is injected into the facial muscles causing them to relax and temporarily reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Results can be noticeable 24-48 hours after treatment and last up to four months. Juvéderm®is a smooth gel dermal filler used to restore volume to the skin and treat wrinkles and folds resulting from loss of volume. Results are immediate and can last approximately 12 months.
