Juvederm® is an FDA-approved injectable dermal filler based on hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps skin cells hold moisture and retain volume. Over-exposure to sunlight and aging can inhibit the production of hyaluronic acid resulting in skin that looks wrinkled or dry.
The dermal filler is injected to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or folds and results are immediate.
The recovery period is minimal and any slight redness, swelling or discomfort at the injection site usually disappears within a few days. Bruising is possible. Results usually last for 12-15 months.
