What is JUVEDERM®?
JUVEDERM® is a special type of dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid and lidocaine. It helps to restore both facial volume and hydration. JUVEDERM® dermal fillers is actually a family of products that work on different areas of the face and lips. The type that works best for you depends upon your needs and goals and can be determined at your consultation.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is something that you may be familiar with as a popular ingredient in a number of skin care products. In addition to its external use, hyaluronic acid works extremely well when delivered via injection. Hyaluronic acid’s main function is to draw moisture into your tissues and skin cells. As you grow older, you lose hyaluronic acid in both quantity and quality. As this important substance depletes, your skin grows continually thinner and drier, which leads to the formation of wrinkles.
How Does JUVEDERM® Work?
JUVEDERM® works by restoring your normal hyaluronic acid levels in your skin to help partially reverse the thinning and drying process that leads to the development of lines and wrinkles. Just one treatment goes to work immediately to begin smoothing and plumping your skin. Your skin will literally drink in the product and continue to retain moisture as long as it is present in your skin.
What Makes JUVEDERM® Different from Other Types of Dermal Fillers?
For one thing, the product is formulated into a very silky-smooth gel that flows easily under your skin. Other dermal fillers have more granulated gels that do not incorporate themselves as well as this form of treatment. JUVEDERM® dermal fillers also contain lidocaine that helps you become comfortable during the treatment process.
Thousands of patients have seen dramatic improvements in the condition of their skin by undergoing JUVEDERM® treatments.
