Juvederm is a natural dermal filler that actually fills facial wrinkles and folds for non-surgical wrinkle treatment. Made from a smooth consistency, water soluble substance that is already present in your skin called hyaluronic acid, Juvederm restores volume to your skin and smoothes out wrinkles. Juvederm wrinkle treatment can help you look younger and more relaxed without surgery. Juvederm is also used for lip enhancement.
The wrinkle-reducing effects of Juvederm injections are not permanent, but results are instant. Although results vary, they typically last six months or longer, and can be repeated as necessary. Juvederm is injected into the skin with thin needles, causing facial wrinkles and folds to be “filled,” adding volume to areas that have become creased as a result of aging. The injection process only takes about ten minutes, and most patients do not need anesthesia, although a topical anesthetic can be applied, if desired.
