As we age our face begins to lose its fullness and volume, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Juvéderm® Injectable Gel, a longer lasting FDA- approved hylauronic acid dermal filler, can replace what has been lost to the aging process.
Juvéderm, which is made by Allergan-the creators of Botox® Cosmetic, is an injectable filler made of hylauronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of this type of acid in the body is to hydrate the skin by binding to water. Juvéderm restores a smoother appearance to the skin while adding volume supplementing your own hylauronic acid.
A breakthrough in dermal fillers, Juvéderm is the first smooth-consistency gel and the only filler that the FDA approved to last up to a year. Because hylauronic acid is found naturally in the body there is virtually no risk for an allergic reaction.
