Although we try our best to keep our skin looking young and healthy, sometimes wrinkles and other signs of aging are inevitable. Luckily, there are ways to solve this problem with ease. Facial procedures that use injectable fillers like Juvederm® are incredibly popular and have admirable results.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a non-animal-based injectable filler made of hydraulic acid. It is FDA-approved. Hydraulic acid is a material that is in the joints of all living things; it is a complex sugar that attracts and holds many water molecules. Hydraulic acid makes the perfect ingredient for an injectable filler.
How Does It Work?
Juvederm® works through the hydraulic acid, which helps maintain the volume of the skin, keeps the skin hydrated, and maintains the shape of the area. As we age, our natural hydraulic acid begins to fade, which is why we lose contour and volume in our skin. Juvederm® works to add the lost hydraulic acid to help maintain younger-looking, attractive skin.
Is It Safe?
Yes! Since hydraulic acid is a natural-occurring material in our bodies, Juvederm® is safe. As always, consult with a qualified professional if you are considering this treatment so they can ensure that you are a qualified candidate.
What is the Difference Between Juvederm® and Other Fillers?
This is a great question if you are torn deciding between Juvederm® and another product. Juvederm® contains a higher concentration of hydraulic acid than a lot of other fillers.
Do I Qualify as a Candidate?
Almost anybody in good general health can qualify as a candidate, especially if you want to fix or fill in the following:
What Can I Expect?
