Juvéderm is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to hydrate and add volume by stimulating the production of collagen. Hyaluronic acid diminishes with age, contributing to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm gives you a smooth, natural and refreshed-looking appearance by softening fine lines, wrinkles and restoring natural contours. The effects of Juvéderm usually last 9 months, since the hyaluronic acid content is currently one of the most concentrated on the market. This effect varies depending on the types of skin, areas, amounts injected and the injection technique.

What is the treatment like?

The Juvéderm range is suitable for patients of all ages. It is also an ideal implant to prevent the development of wrinkles in fragile areas in young people and to smooth imperfections. Injections of Juvéderm must be seen as a treatment. Your doctor will design a personal time course of injections suitable for your own case and prolong the aesthetic results.
