Hyaluronic acid is a key component that helps your skin maintain a healthy, full skin tone and texture. Unfortunately, the aging process and sun damage cause a decreased production of hyaluronic acid, and you develop fine lines and wrinkles. Juvederm® contains hyaluronic acid to replenish the natural volume of your skin and fill in the lines and wrinkles.
What is Juvederm®?
Dermal fillers such as Juvederm® offer a quick, effective and safe way to erase wrinkles and folds by restoring skin structure and volume. This non-surgical method creates smooth, natural and youthful results that last for up to one year. Thanks to the special manufacturing process, Juvederm® consists of a smooth gel mixed with lidocaine anesthetic for comfort.
Juvederm® works by combining two methods. First, it physically fills creases and lines, plumping them up from the inside. Second, it boosts the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural moisturizer that holds water within the skin. As we age and expose our skin to the sun or other damaging factors, HA becomes reduced, causing the skin to lose moisture, structure, and volume. Thus, a wrinkle is born. By restoring the skin’s previous levels of HA, Juvederm® enhances volume and smooths out lines to recreate younger-looking and younger-feeling skin.
Juvederm® is a minimally invasive injectable treatment that is administered with a very small needle. Most patients experience little to no discomfort. The procedure takes less than one hour, and you see immediate results.

Benefits of Juvederm®
Juvederm® is an effective treatment for lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth, and the treatment gives you natural-looking results that last up to one year. Many patients prefer Juvederm® because the treatment does not use synthetic substances to reverse the signs of aging.
After the treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, alcoholic beverages, and prolonged exposure to heat or sun. Other than these cautions, you can resume your normal daily routine almost immediately. Some people notice slight tenderness and swelling at the sites of injection; these last no longer than one week.
Different types of Juvederm
Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area. It is the only filler proven to last up to 2 years in the cheek area. When treated again after 2 years, patients needed less product to achieve their results.
