Our office is committed to providing patients with the safest and most effective procedures. Juvéderm® is an injectable gel filler made from hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is naturally found in our skin it helps the skin retain moisture, softness and volume. As we age, our skin begins to lose its HA. The loss causes skin to appear dry, hollow and wrinkled. The rate of HA loss varies person to person. Juvéderm® safely and effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles, increases volume and enhances the texture of the skin. This makes it a popular adjunct to BOTOX®.
How Juvederm® Works
Juvéderm® nourishes and moisturizes aged skinned, as well as increases volume. Administering the HA that your skin has lost, results in smoother, fuller looking skin. Needed volume is returned beneath the skin’s surface. Patients’ skin will feel and look younger.
HA naturally occurs in liquid form. In liquid form the results could fade in a day. Juvéderm® has used a process called “cross linking”. It targets the HA’s chemistry and is able to change HA into a gel. Your body absorbs the gel much slower than the liquid. Results normally last 9-12 months.
What makes this treatment so powerful is HA’s ability to absorb so much water. It can absorb 1,000 times its own weight causing skin to moisturize and look plump. HA will bind with collagen and elastin. This will return elasticity to your skin. The result is healthy young looking skin. Juvéderm® treatments will take years off your appearance.
