What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® products are a smooth consistency gel, compared to some hyaluronic gel products that have a granular consistency. Juvederm® products are developed using the Hylacross technology to allow a smoother, malleable gel. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body. Hyaluronic acid works by holding in water at the injection site and acting as a cushioning agent. It adds temporary volume and a smoother appearance to skin. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal results.
How does it work?
Juvederm® works by adding volume to the facial tissue through its active ingredient, hyaluronic acid. As you get older, the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen decreases. This increases the appearance of sagging and wrinkling of the facial skin. During the procedure, your medical aesthetician will use a pen to mark the areas to be treated. Your medical aesthetician will then inject Juvederm® into the target area. They will also lightly massage the area to ensure an even distribution and reduce the chance of swelling. The entire procedure usually takes between 15 and 60 minutes, depending on the area treated.
