What is Juvederm?
Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can restore lost volume to the face. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that’s naturally found in the body. It retains water and helps in nutrient delivery. As a person ages, their hyaluronic acid starts to decrease, but Juvéderm can add that volume back to the face. Juvéderm can be used on all types of skin and is safe for use in nearly all patients who want to add volume in specific areas of the face.
Benefits of Juvederm
- Smooths Parentheses Lines and Folds –
- Skin loses elasticity over time, resulting in wrinkles around the nose and mouth and parentheses lines. When used on wrinkles around the mouth and nose and parentheses lines, most patients see instant smoothing to the area, since Juvederm adds volume, offering long-lasting results.
- Plumps Lips and Smooths Vertical Lines –
- Lips often begin to thin over time, and vertical lip lines often become more noticeable with age. Juvederm can plump lips, adding fullness, while also softening the appearance of those vertical lip lines.
- Lifts and Contours Cheeks –
- Aging often results in volume loss in the cheeks, resulting to sagging, flatter cheeks. This age-related midface volume loss can be treated with Juvederm, which will add volume beneath the surface of the skin, contouring and lifting the cheek area.
