Find out by reading this guide to popular non-surgical anti-aging skin treatments like Juvederm, Perlane and more
JuvedermJuvederm is made by Allergan -- the same guys that brought us Botox. On February 1, 2010, Allergan announced that the FDA approved Juvederm XC, a "new formulation that contains the local anesthetic lidocaine, which numbs the treatment area within seconds from initial injection for enhanced patient comfort." The new product, which is great for wimpier types, is already on the market in some cities.
It works best on: Moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, especially the nasolabial "parentheses" folds.
How long it lasts: Juvederm is approved by the FDA to last up to one year.
One expert's opinion: Dr. Arcan says that she loves Juvederm. "It has the consistency of a smoothie. It lays down very nicely and gives a great, natural look."
Reader review: Total Beauty reader Leann told us on Facebook that "Juvederm is the best for plumping lips" and that despite the fact that it "hurts like hell," she'll "definitely" keep doing it.
