Juvederm™ is the latest technology of dermal fillers; it is used to replenish areas of the face where youthful fullness may have faded. It is made from a compound that naturally occurs in the body, known as hyaluronic acid, which fills in the space between collagen and elastin fibers of the skin. As the skin ages, the presence of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid is reduced, creating a loss of volume in the skin, thus generating folds and wrinkles. The effects of Juvederm™ are often long lasting and following injection, the area can actually be molded to create the desired natural look.
Injections of Juvederm™ fill the natural folds to restore a full and smoother appearance.
Common areas of injection are:
- Nasolabial folds (lines near the corners of the mouth running to the nose)
- Wrinkles on upper or lower face
- Lipstick lines
- Lip plumping
