What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a dermal filler or injectable similar to Botox. Juvederm differs from Botox in that it is made from a substance called Hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring sugar within the body. Juvederm works by holding in water at the injection site and acting as a cushioning agent. It adds a smoother appearance to skin. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal results.
The consistency of Juvederm is that of a smooth gel, contain lidocaine to reduce pain during the procedure. When people received Juvederm treatment they report a noteable, yet natural-looking reduction of the wrinkles on their face.
