Yvette Hill: I got to looking at myself one day in the mirror and I just looked tired and mostly where I saw it was right here around my face, and I started to get these lines.
Reporter: These frustrations led Yvette Hill, a professional photographer and mother of two, to jumpstart a maintenance program for her skin. At only 42 years old, she was not ready for surgery.
Dr. Bob Basu: JUVÉDERM® is basically an injectable filler. We perform it here in the office and it takes about 10 to 15 minutes.
Reporter: The new procedure has already received a positive response from patients.
Dr. Bob Basu: The data shows that about 80 to 90 percent of patients are happy with their results beyond 6 to 8 months so we are seeing longer lasting results.
Reporter: Yvette Hill agrees.
Yvette Hill: It’s given me more confidence in the way I feel about myself. It makes me feel more like my age.
Dr. Basu: It’s really best suited for patients who are maybe not ready for surgical facial rejuvenation or just don’t need that just yet. It’s a great maintenance therapy to keep a younger, softer look.
Yvette Hill: First impressions are really important to me, so when I smile and people talk to me, I feel like they are looking at my eyes and not my wrinkles.
