Juvederm® is used to improve a patient’s appearance by lifting and increasing volume of wrinkles and folds in the facial area to be treated. It is a gel implant that augments and bolsters the elasticity of the skin to provide a smooth and supple look.
The Juvederm® gel is injected deeply into the dermis (subsurface skin layer containing connective tissue, nerve endings, sweat and oil glands, and blood vessels), and supplements the body’s natural hyaluronic acid that is depleted by the aging process. One of the main advantages of Juvederm® is its pliant gel consistency. This provides an improved, smoother and more natural appearance than results obtained from earlier more rigid dermal fillers.
The treatment lasts for up to six to nine months and can last even longer if there is a follow-up treatment a few weeks after the initial treatment.
