What Is Juvéderm®?
JUVÉDERM is an injectable facial filler derived from hyaluronic acid. Allergan, the manufacturer of JUVÉDERM, describes it as a “next generation” filler, and it has two significant differences from other hyaluronic acid fillers. JUVÉDERM is produced with more cross-linking between the hyaluronic acid molecules, which may make them more resistant to absorption by the body, and it is produced with a smoother texture than other hyaluronic acid fillers.
What Does Juvéderm®Treat?
Like other facial fillers, JUVÉDERM is used to treat the lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds and other skin folds and wrinkles due to a loss of facial volume or skin tone. Like Restylane®, it can be a complementary treatment to BOTOX® injections. JUVÉDERM is also FDA cleared to be used in the lips and the vertical lines often seen around the lips.
JUVÉDERM Ultra is designed to target fine lines in the face that are more superficial in nature. This FDA-approved treatment is composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural component of the human body, and often has results that last six months to a year.
Juvéderm® Ultra Plus
JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus is a member of the JUVÉDERM family that is designed to rejuvenate the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles in the face. This injectable gel is more concentrated in its composition, allowing our physicians to treat deeper facial folds and wrinkles, with results that can often last up to a year.
