For those looking for a treatment for facial wrinkles and/or thin lips, there is a product available whose main ingredient is naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid. The dermal filler, Juvederm®, works below the skin’s surface to fill in gaps left by the natural loss of hyaluronic acid and, in so doing, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds. The results are often immediate and remarkable.
As we age, our bodies have more difficulty producing and retaining some of the naturally-occurring substances that are necessary to keep us looking and feeling as good as we did in our younger years. One such substance, a sugar called hyaluronic acid, is a key component in the fight against wrinkles. Skin aging is associated with a loss of moisture. Hyaluronic acid has a unique ability to bind and retain water molecules, helping the skin to look youthful.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a dermal filler available as a smooth injectable gel and is used to provide months to a year or more of improvement for signs of aging and other issues. Its main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in your skin. It works by holding in water precisely at the point where it was applied, which adds volume and provides a smoother appearance to your skin. For most, the desired effect will be seen in just one treatment.
Where is Juvederm® Used?
Primary areas of treatment are around the cheeks, nose and lips, though it can be used to treat other areas. Simply check with our experts to find out exactly where you can use this product. If you have been looking for a non-surgical way to enhance your lips, Juvederm® could be perfect for you!
