Juvederm is a gel filler that can be used to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. A single Juvederm treatment can last up to one year, depending on the area of treatment.
By replacing the hyaluronic acid that your body has lost, Juvederm helps to reduce the appearance of deeper wrinkles that form in the inner layers of skin. Hyaluronic acid is one of your body’s natural moisturizers. It works by attracting water to itself and holding it, somewhat like a sponge.
Juvederm is one of the most long-lasting dermal fillers available on the market, it is the only one that is FDA approved to last up to one year per treatment. It is made of an exceptionally smooth gel, where most other dermal fillers have a slightly more granular consistency.
Juvederm is also the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler for use in people with darker skin. Juvederm has shown no increase of hyperpigmentation or hypertrophic scarring.
