An Overview of Juvederm

You might’ve heard words like “parenthesis” or “marionette lines” utilized to explain one’s facial features. These include nicknames for the nasolabial folds; lines on the skin which run from the corner of the nose down to the edges of the mouth. As with other creases in the skin, nasolabial folds will deepen as we age. And — also similar to other wrinkles — fillers such as Juvederm include an increasingly popular method of making them vanish.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm, like Elevess, Perlane, and Restylane, includes a hyaluronic acid wrinkle filler. Such acid is a chemical that is already found inside the body, even though the hyaluronic acid inside dermal fillers is developed outside of the body. Juvederm includes a gel designed of hyaluronic acid which is injected right into your skin. Then, the gel fills wrinkles that are caused by aging, smoothing your skin and offering it a youthful look.

In 2006, Juvederm was approved by the Food and Drug Administration for treating mild to moderate creases in the face. Juvederm injections commonly are utilized to smooth out facial wrinkles, treat acne scars, and plump lips. Also, it may decrease lines on your brow and forehead, fill in under-eye hollows, plump eyebrows, enhance jawline and cheek volume, soften scars, as well as decrease hand wrinkles.

Juvederm is provided in a variety of formulations, which include Ultra Plus and Ultra. Juvederm Ultra includes Allergan’s version of a highly-linked HA (hyaluronic acid) filler which competes with Restylane; it’s more frequently utilized to fill superficial lines and may last 8 months to one year.

Side effects of Juvederm most typically reported include bruising, swelling, as well as bumps and lumps appearing following injection.
