Juvederm is a largely hyaluronic acid-based filler used by cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists to soften deep folds and reduce wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a substance normally found in the skin, muscles, and tendons of mammals. Juvederm's primary use is removing nasolabial folds, or smile lines, which are the creases running from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth. It is also used to plump lips and to fill in hollows and facial scars.
WHAT TO EXPECT
You will discuss your aesthetic expectations with your practitioner, and the treatment itself will take about 30 mintes. Like all hyaluronic acid facial fillers Juvederm is eventually absorbed back into the body, usually within six to nine months. Therefore repeat injections will be required to maintain the look.
Youthful, fresh look; reduced lines and furrows; plumped out facial features.
With all fillers there is a chance that the treatment will look overdone.
