Sun exposure, hormonal changes, and aging can all have an impact on your skin’s appearance. Over time, your skin begins to lose hyaluronic acid and collagen, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of fullness and
elasticity. Healthcare professionals can now reverse these signs of aging by correcting the wrinkles and folds and adding volume to sunken skin.
Juvéderm® is a soft injectable gel filler that your doctor uses to help replenish and refresh your appearance. It uses hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring sugar found in your body), which combines with the
water in your skin to instantly restore lost volume and reduce lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic injections have also been shown to stimulate collagen production. Not only that, Juvéderm® works to enhance and define lips, cheeks, and jaw line. Best of all, the results are instant and natural-looking, and last up to a year.
WHERE CAN Juvéderm® BE USED?
Juvéderm® uses a patented technology called HYLACROSS™ that results in a gel that is smooth and consistent, with effects lasting up to one year. It’s this advanced technology that makes the results so natural looking. Plus, Juvéderm® is the first HA gel to have demonstrated its safety and effectiveness for all skin tones.
