Juvederm is a dermal filler that provides a non-invasive way to attain a youthful appearance. It is a non-surgical wrinkle treatment that restores the skin’s volume and hydration when injected into the skin. Juvederm is used to smooth away wrinkles and nasolabial folds, or smile lines.
A specially formulated gel, composed of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, Juvederm was developed by Allergan, the manufacturer of Botox, and approved for cosmetic use by the FDA in 2006. The smooth consistency of Juvederm allows it to be easily and accurately administered by your MedSpa specialist. Each treatment requires approximately 15 minutes, depending on the injections required. Results with Juvederm are immediate.
Your rejuvenated appearance is temporary and can be maintained for up to one year, with results varying from person to person. Hyaluronic acid is a natural protein, allowing Juvederm to absorb into the body gradually. Additionally, injections or touch-ups may be required to achieve and maintain optimal results. The natural protein used allows Juvederm to pose little risk of an allergic reaction and does not require an allergy test before treatment.
