This facial rejuvenation procedure is one of the world’s most popular–offering a temporary solution to combat fine lines and wrinkles.
Our skin contains two very useful elements that give us young, glowing and healthy-looking skin: collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA). Both of these diminish substantially once we hit our mid-40s, which leads to the formation of lines, wrinkles, and eventually sagging.
Juvederm’s active ingredient is hyaluronic acid (HA), which is administered via injection. Dermal fillers typically contain ingredients that add volume to the skin, plumping up fine lines and wrinkles to minimize their appearance. They may also contain ingredients to stimulate the body’s own production of collagen.
There are a number of different types of Juvederm with slightly different applications. As well as adding volume to the face and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, it can also be used on the lips to add fullness.
