What is Juvéderm™?
Juvéderm is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid (HA) – a material that is a naturally present in the skin, joints and tissues of all living things. It plays an important role in moisturizing your skin and helps give skin its elasticity.
Hyaluronic acid is also the main ingredient in Restylane. It is a complex sugar that maintains its three dimensional shape in the body by attracting and holding large numbers of water molecules.
Among its many natural functions, hyaluronic acid maintains the volume and structure of the skin and the eye.
As we age, we lose hyaluronic acid from the skin losing its volume and structure.
Injecting Juvéderm into skin folds and wrinkles restores the volume lost with aging, restoring the youthful appearance of the skin. When injected into the dermis, Juvéderm replenishes natural hyaluronic acid and hydrates the dermis by absorbing and holding the water molecules, giving your skin back its volume and initial form.
Juvéderm comes in two formulations—Juvéderm Ultra and Juvéderm Ultra Plus.
Juvederm Ultra is used for mild wrinkles and folds. Juvederm Ultra Plus is used on those with moderate to severe creases & folds.
These products are available with lidocaine (numbing agent) to significantly reduce injection site discomfort.
