Juvederm is a facial filler, injected into the face, and used by cosmetic, dermatological and plastic surgeons to soften the face and, of course, reduce the visibility of wrinkles. It’s made of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found in the skin anyway—as well as muscles and tendons. The US FDA approved of Juvederm’s use in 2006 for removing smile lines and other creases in the skin such as crow’s feet. It can also be used as lip filler and help reduce the appearance of scars. However, because of its organic make up, Juvederm is absorbed and metabolized by the body, making injections necessary every six to nine months.
The process to correct wrinkles with Juvederm is a quick, non-invasive in office procedure. There is little downtime and the results are virtually instantaneous.
How Are Wrinkles Corrected?
Wrinkles in the facial fold are smoothed when the skin is brought back up to the surface—negating the years of gravity pulling it away. This is accomplished by adding volume under the skin. This is accomplished with injections known as “dermal fillers” which, when injected into the skin, achieve a temporary smoothness. Fillers, such as Juvederm, can also be used to create fuller lips, as well as achieving fullness in the nasal labial folds, and the gabellar area between the eyebrows.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is actually a sugar complex, found in all human beings, and located in the skin, bone and muscle. HA retains water, much like a sponge, and can absorb up to 1,000 times its weight. As it does this, it increases in volume and density, causing a tautening and smoothing effect in the areas around it. HA is essential to healthy skin in general, as it plays a vital role in the transfer of essential vitamins and nutrients to the skin’s viable cells.
