How Juvéderm® Works
Juvéderm® is a specialized formula based on hyaluronic acid, a natural chemical that gradually and safely dissipates and is absorbed by the body. As a result, the age-defying results of Juvéderm® treatment are not permanent, lasting about nine months on average. However, with a few follow-up treatments that time can be extended significantly.
Hyaluronic acid has also been found to maintain or even accelerate the forming of new collagen. Our patients have been thrilled with the results, which are immediately visible.
Hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in your skin plays an important role in moisturizing the skin and helps to give it elasticity and tone. It is the fundamental matter in which the collagen fibers and elastin are immersed. It is a reduction in the natural hyaluronic acid in the skin over time which contributes to skin aging.
To keep your face looking young and radiant on a more long-term basis, one or two annual Juvéderm® touchups can be an essential part of your anti-aging skin care regimen.
A specially formulated smooth hyaluronic acid gel, Juvederm® comes in three concentrations to handle every problem from deep folds to fine lines. Injected into the dermis, it replenishes the natural hyaluronic acid and hydrates the dermis by absorbing and holding the water molecules and giving back to your skin its volume and initial form.
The Juvederm procedure is simple, painless, and requires little to no recovery time. Juvederm uses hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in our bodies and absorbs 1,000 times its weight in water. When this is injected into the problem areas of the face, it adds volume to the area, smoothing out wrinkles, lines and folds.
