Question: Do you recommend Juvederm, injectable filler, as a viable option to reduce wrinkles while avoiding surgery?
Answer: Use and indication of Juvederm as a filler depends on the individual patient, his or her anatomy, needs, skin type, etc. Some things can be corrected with Juvederm and some things cannot. Conversely plastic surgery may not correct certain things that Juvederm filler injections can. For example, nasolabial folds or smile lines are much better treated with Juvederm or Restylane than with a facelift or other cosmetic surgery short of a mid face lift.
