Hyaluronic acid in the body fills the spaces between the collagen and elastin fibers of the skin. Hyaluronic acid is present in all living cells, hydrating the skin, and giving it smoothness and volume. But as the body ages, the ability of the body’s cells to make fresh hyaluronic acid is diminished, resulting in the depletion of skin volume, creating lines and wrinkles. JUVEDERM hyaluronic acid injections can replace that lost volume safely and beautifully.
JUVEDERM ® hyaluronic acid gel is a biosynthetic product (not of animal-based origin), so there is a very small chance of allergic reaction to JUVEDERM ® cosmetic injections. No allergy testing is required prior to treatment as JUVEDERM side effects are extremely rare; JUVEDERM ® has undergone rigorous clinical testing, and has been proven safe and effective for patients of all skin types.
One difference between JUVEDERM ® and other popular HA hyaluronic acid fillers is that JUVEDERM ® is produced with a special formulation process that makes it smoother than other popular gels. Other gels utilize a suspension process, with particles large enough to be seen by the naked eye. The particles in JUVEDERM ® are so small that the gel is entirely transparent.
JUVEDERM ® is long-lasting (up to 6 months or more), with minimal treatment discomfort. JUVEDERM ® Voluma can last up to 2 years.
The Juvederm ® family of fillers begins with the finest formulation (smaller molecules): Juvederm ® Ultra XC, ideal for the lips and thin, superficial lines and wrinkles. Lidocaine is added for treatment comfort.
Juvederm ® XC is the most commonly used formulation, and corrects moderate facial lines and wrinkles. Lidocaine is added for treatment comfort.
Ultra Plus ® XC is a thicker formulation, meant for deeper filling of the mid-face area. Lidocaine is added for treatment comfort.
Juvederm ® Voluma XC is a special density formulation created to restore lost volume to "apple" area of the upper cheek. Results with Voluma can last up to 2 years or more.
Lidocaine is added for treatment comfort.
