Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler generally used to smoothen facial wrinkles and enhance facial volume. When injected into specific facial tissues, it adds volume underneath the skin to improve your contours and reduce wrinkles. Juvéderm is available in numerous formulations — each carrying a different consistency of hyaluronic acid. The cosmetic provider selects the ideal formulation for your unique needs.
Hyaluronic acid is the primary component in Juvéderm and most other dermal fillers. It’s a naturally occurring substance that makes your skin look soft, smooth, and supple. As you grow older, your skin’s ability to retain hyaluronic acid is compromised, leading to wrinkles and the loss of facial volume. Juvéderm fillers reverse the effects of age — they can also make your jawline and cheeks appear sharper.
