JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel
JUVÉDERM® is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance, called hyaluronic acid. The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, gentle and safe to your skin. Results can endure for 6-9 months. Dr. Medalie is an expert at Juvaderm injections and offers them in his Beachwood office.
He typically use Juvederm to fill in “sunken” cheeks or laugh lines between the nose and mouth and augment the lips. He also finds that it is very effective in reducing the dark circles around the eyes formed by the descent of the cheek in relation to the lower eyelid.
