Juvederm Halyaronic Acid Dermal Filler
Hyaluronic Acid Based Injectable Filler
Juvederm® is a brand of facial filler that is hyaluronic acid based. As your skin matures, the amount of hyaluronic acid found in the skin naturally decreases which in turn causes that skin to become less hydrated. This leads to facial wrinkles and folds.
Juvederm® is a smooth consistent gel. Although the FDA has approved the use of Juvederm® to fill in moderate creases around the mouth, it is also commonly used for softening the appearance of scars and other depressed marks on the face. It can also be injected around the eye to lessen the appearance of dark circles. Its effects last from 6 to 12 months. There are no animal proteins in this product and, therefore, there is very little chance of an allergic reaction. As with other dermal fillers, Juvederm’s side effects tend to be mild. They can include temporary site redness, swelling, tenderness, firmness, lumps and bruising lasting seven days or less.
