JUVÉDERM is an increasingly popular injectable filler that was FDA-approved in 2006 for the treatment of facial folds, wrinkles, and hollows. Using hyaluronic acid – a natural sugar found in your eyes, skin, and joints – Juvéderm improves your skin’s elasticity and smoothes out wrinkles for a more youthful overall appearance.
Juvéderm comes with a few notable advantages over other facial fillers, including:
- Biocompatible – Since hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance already found in your body, it is safer to use than some other injectables.
- Smooth gel consistency – The Juvéderm gel is smooth and even in its consistency, helping it provide superior results. Other injectable fillers can be more granular.
- Longevity – The results of Juvéderm can last anywhere from six months to a full year before follow-up treatments are needed.
- Convenience – Juvéderm is a non-surgical procedure that can be performed during a lunch break. It requires no downtime and a minimal recovery process.
