JUVEDERM® is the next generation of facial fillers from Allergan, the makers of Botox. Using the latest technology in hyaluronic acid cosmetic filler technology, JUVEDERM® provides smooth, natural, long-lasting (up to six months or longer) correction of facial wrinkles and folds.
JUVEDERM® is an injectable gel of nonanimal-sourced hyaluronic acid (HA), which functions as a smooth, long-lasting dermal filler. Normally found in all living organisms, HA is used to correct facial lines and wrinkles. Because JUVEDERM® is the only dermal filler currently available with the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid and a special HYLACROSS formulation process, it is a smooth gel that flows easily into the skin, creating natural, long-lasting results.*
Similar to one of the body’s own natural substances, JUVEDERM® is a completely safe treatment. The hyaluronic acid in JUVEDERM® simply supplements the body’s age-depleted hyaluronic acid to plump-up lips or to raise the skin and fill in wrinkles and folds.
Many other dermal fillers use a gel particle suspension formulation. These gel particles can sometimes be visibly seen. However JUVEDERM® is produced with the latest HYLACROSS technology, resulting in a gel with many more cross-links. The smooth consistency of the JUVEDERM® dermal filler produces natural, even filling effects. Since the body absorbs cross-linked hyaluronic acid more slowly, the results of JUVEDERM® last longer. Additionally, patient discomfort is also minimized at the injection site.*
Hyaluronic acid is a natural complex sugar that retains water and is found in all living organisms. HA adds volume to the skin’s surface, restoring volume and correcting the appearance of facial folds and wrinkles. Because hyaluronic acid already appears in the body, the HA in JUVEDERM® is biocompatible.
