What You Should Know About JUVÉDERM®
In 2006, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Allergan’s JUVÉDERM® as the next generation of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. JUVÉDERM® is said to provide longer-lasting, smoother results than its competitors. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring complex sugar found in living organisms that creates structure and elasticity in the skin. With age, the body’s production of hyaluronic acid decreases and injectable fillers help restore facial volume. JUVÉDERM®, however, is unlike other hyaluronic acid fillers in that it consists of a smooth gel containing higher levels of non-animal and cross-linked acid, leading to longer-lasting results. The ideal candidates for JUVÉDERM® treatments include individuals with moderate to severe folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth area.
Benefits of JUVÉDERM® include:
- Immediate improvement in facial volume
- Minimized appearance of wrinkles and folds
- Longer-lasting results
- Minimally invasive treatment with no downtime
