Juvederm is an FDA approved injectable dermal filler, containing hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the body that has a vital role in the maintenance of skin volume and hydration, joint lubrication and cushioning, as well as eye volume and shape.
It’s incredibly hydrophilic and retains water, absorbing more than 1,000 times its weight, therefore adds volume to the skin.
Hyaluronic acid also binds with elastin and collagen, providing essential nutrients to them, which provides elasticity, structure, and volume to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm is not derived from animal sources. It’s biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid and is biodegradable.
With aging, skin loses its elasticity and volume which leads to saggy appearance. It can be corrected and visibly improved by Juvederm injections. Juvederm is used for restoring the volume and elasticity of the skin, as a filler for facial wrinkles and folds, facial contouring and liquid facelift.
The effect of Juvederm usually lasts up to a year or more, depending on the individual’s skin and health characteristics, muscle movement, injector’s technique and the facial area where it’s injected.
The combination of neuromodulators (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport) with the hyaluronic acid-containing injectables prolongs the positive rejuvenating effect.
The incidence of side effects of hyaluronic acid containing dermal fillers is low.
There are, of course, some instances when the use of Juvederm is contraindicated.
