What a wrinkle is

With time, exposure to the sun and other elements skin components break down. The skin loses structure and volume. Unwelcome lines and wrinkles appear. Dr. Robinson now can correct wrinkles and facial folds, reversing the signs of aging.

How are wrinkles corrected?

The appearance of wrinkles and facial folds can be smoothed by adding structure and volume underneath the skin thereby bringing sunken skin back up to the surface. Generally, this is done by injecting materials into the skin, to achieve a temporary effect. When administered by a trained healthcare professional, you can be sure that the materials have been proven safe to use. One example is hyaluronic acid.

What hyaluronic acid is

Hyaluranic acid (HA) is a natural complex sugar found in all living cells, and one of the major components of the skin (dermal connective tissue matrix  along with collagen and elastin).

HA retains water like a sponge, absorbing more than 1000 times it's weight. This helps to attract and maintain water, hydrating your skin and increasing it's volume and density.

Allergan, Inc., has found ways to produce, purify and package HA to make it available for wrinkle correction.

What JUVADERM is

JUVEDERM injectable gel is a smooth gel filler Dr. Robinson eases under your skin to instantly smooth out those wrinkles or folds that look like parentheses along the side of your nose and mouth. Results aren't just instant, they're so smooth and natural, everyone will notice but no one will know.

JUVEDERM Injectable Gel
Important Treatment Considerations for Patients

In the US, JUVEDERM injectable gel is indicated for injection into the mid to deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds) and is generally well tolerated. The most commonly reported side effects are temporary injection site redness, swelling, pain/tenderness, firmness, lumps/;bumps, and bruising. Exposure of the treated area to excessive sun and extreme cold weather should be minimized until any initial swelling and redness has resolved.  Most patients tolerate the treatment well and achieve excellent functional and cosmetic results.
