Juvéderm® dermal fillers are a type of hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that helps the skin retain its volume and hydration. The fillers operate by instantly adding volume to the skin, filling in lines, wrinkles, and creases to provide the appearance of a younger face. For a slight augmentation, several Juvéderm® compositions are specifically developed to impart volume to the cheeks or lips.
- Can be used to fill in wrinkles and folds in the face, as well as add definition to the cheeks and lips
- Results are immediate and can last up to a year or longer.
How Juvederm® Works
With its transparent gel formula, Juvéderm® adds instant volume to creases and folds while smoothing out their appearance. The hyaluronic acids in the filler hydrate the skin and aid in the formation of new, healthier cells. Juvéderm® formulae also contain a small quantity of lidocaine, which makes the injection process more comfortable for the patient. Depending on the degree of the patient's lines and folds, several injections will be given. The effects of Juvéderm® filler can last for one to two years depending on the formula, with your body eventually breaking it down and safely eliminating it.
