Parentheses are a pair of signs used in a sentence to interject an explanation. If you find that you’re seeing parentheses on either side of your mouth, you’d probably looking for an explanation as well. The truth is your skin looses its elasticity over time — especially in the areas around your mouth, as natural muscle movement causes the skin’s volume to decrease and wrinkles to form.
Those marks around your mouth and other wrinkles on your face can become pronounced as years go by, causing embarrassment and insecurity.
JUVÉDERM™ injectable gel can help reverse the signs of age and help your skin to maintain its original tautness and vigor.
Say goodbye to those laugh lines and facial parentheses. You’ve got the last laugh now.
A “next-generation” dermal filler, JUVÉDERM™ uses hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring chemical in human skin that hydrates and adds volume, thus smoothing out wrinkles. Because it’s a natural substance found in the skin, no allergy tests are needed before treatment can be administered. Other advantages to JUVÉDERM™ are that it’s the only dermal filler of its kind formulated to be smooth instead of granular. This means its smooth consistency causes the treatment to be longer-lasting than other fillers. Additionally, JUVÉDERM™ is the first treatment of its kind proven to be safe and effective for people of color.
Two formulas are available to meet an individual’s needs. JUVÉDERM™ Ultra provides counter and volume to wrinkles and folds while JUVÉDERM™ Ultra Plus works to correct deeper wrinkles and folds on the face.
JUVÉDERM™ is suitable for people of all ages, except those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have an infection in the area to be treated. An allergy test is not needed for the procedure. Those who have neuromuscular disorders should proceed with caution, as they may experience serious side effects from the treatment. Speak with Dr. Moore if you have such a disorder or any other concerns.

I had consulted with several doctors – and after consulting with Dr. Moore – I felt comfortable with them as a team. Everyone was helpful, encouraging, and supportive. Those attitudes are so important to your recovery. – CL
In most cases, the procedure will be performed on an outpatient basis and will typically take about 15 minutes.
Generally, JUVÉDERM™ injections do not require anesthesia, although sometimes our injectors use topical anesthetic cream to numb the area. The skin is injected with the gel to fill or augment wrinkles and folds.
After the procedure, avoid excessive activity like strenuous exercise or prolonged exposure to the sun. Doing so will decrease your chances of experiencing some side effects, such as itching or infection. Other possible side effects include pain, swelling, bumps, firmness, and redness.
Discuss with your injector when touch-up treatments are needed to achieve and keep the desired results.
You will love your new smoother appearance, which will happen immediately. Avoid makeup for a short while after the treatment, but feel free to go about your daily routine as soon as you’d like.
Costs depend on your individual goals and needs.
