Juvederm is a type of dermal filler that works well for patients who want to get rid of the wrinkles and lines around their mouth and nose. Juvederm works by adding volume to the face, and Juvederm injections will add shape and will help contour the face, giving patients the look they desire.
Juvederm is an injectable made from hyaluronic acid (a natural sugar found in people’s skin, joints, eyes and cartilage) and it is a colorless gel. After it has been injected, it will add volume to the face, which will also smooth out any wrinkles or facial folds. Juvederm is an effective treatment for 9 months, or up to a year. This is the top dermal filler that is sold in the United States.
There are four different types of Juvederm treatments available, and they include:
- Juvederm Ultra Plus:
This treatment is injected into the skin and it smooths and softens moderate to severe wrinkles and facial folds, especially those located around the nose or mouth
- Juvederm Ultra XC:
