What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a dermal filler that is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to hydrate and plump the skin. Juvederm is a popular choice for patients who want to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, add volume to the lips, and restore volume to the cheeks and other areas of the face.
How does Juvederm work?
Juvederm works by adding volume to the skin, which helps to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. When injected into the skin, the HA in Juvederm binds to water molecules, creating a gel-like substance that adds volume and hydrates the skin. The results of the treatment are immediate and can last for up to one year.
