What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a collection of injectable fillers used to reduce fine lines and fill cheeks and lips. Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance that occurs throughout the skin and body. Hyaluronic acid is key to the process of healing and tissue repair in the skin and also helps the skin retain moisture and softness. Finally, hyaluronic acid adds volume to the skin, making it ideal for a number of different uses.
Juvederm is a great way to replace the HA in your skin, plumping folds, reducing wrinkles, or adding volume in the right places.
Cosmetic physicians use the collection of Juvederm gel fillers for three main uses:
- Cheek filler. Juvederm is proven to lift and contour cheeks, giving users a more youthful appearance for up to two years after one treatment.
- Lip filler. With optimal treatment, Juvederm can give you fuller, plumper lips for up to a year.
- Line and wrinkle filler. Juvederm can be used to treat moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, especially parentheses lines around the mouth. Treatments last up to one year.
