An alternative to collagen dermal fillers, Juvederm™ uses cross-linked strands of hyaluronic acid to create an easily injectable gel, which has been proven to improve the skin's fullness, texture, and elasticity.
Juvederm™ is similar to Restylane in its use of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that is vital to maintaining healthy volume and vibrancy in the skin. Like collagen, this compound begins to diminish as you age, bringing on the onset of fine lines and wrinkles such as those that cause dark under eye circles. To combat this, Juvederm™ injections provide the body with a refill of hyaluronic acid in the form of a smooth gel. This long-lasting gel flows easily into the skin, working in harmony with the body's system and binding natural elastin with existing and newly formed collagen molecules. The result is firmer, smoother skin and a rejuvenated look that can last as long as six months.
Since earning FDA approval in 2006, Juvederm™ has risen up the ranks of commercial facial rejuvenation products, both for its success in wrinkle removal and lip augmentation. In terms of wrinkle treatment, Juvederm™ has proven particularly effective in eliminating nasolabial folds (also known as "smile lines"), and as a lip filler, Juvederm™ treatments offer patients the opportunity for results comparable to invasive surgery, without the risk factors or long recovery time.
Juvederm™ has been proven safe and effective with patients of all skin types, and it's also environmentally safe, biodegradable and devoid of any animal ingredients.
Like all injectable fillers, repeated treatments are required to ensure the best results with Juvederm™. For potentially longer lasting treatments, however, there are two sister products available—Juvederm™ Ultra and Juvederm™ Ultra Plus, which can last up to a full year.
