The JUVEDERM family of dermal fillers are made of a smooth gel form of injectible hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is normally found in the skin and other tissues of the body. Injectible hyaluronic acid works by drawing water into the area and holding it at the injection site. It also acts as a cushioning agent. The newly injected area has temporary volume. The skin now appears smoother and more youthful.
Dermal fillers can help you look younger and more refreshed without the need for surgery.
JUVEDERM is a FDA approved family of dermal fillers used for moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. They are used to:
Smooth marionette, parenthesis, corner or lip lines around the mouth
