JUVEDERM is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that helps replace lost volume in the lips and nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in the human body therefore is very bio-compatible making allergies and sensitivities extremely rare. As we age the skin loses its ability to bounce back because of lost fibers that hold the skin together. The aging process results in lost volume and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and thinning lips. Juvederm can also be used to fill in the triangle and folds (parenthesis) around the nose and mouth.
JUVÉDERM® XC is an effective dermal filler that is used for volume loss in the mid-to-deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds). JUVÉDERM® XC is made with lidocaine and virtually creates a pain-free treatment.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC with lidocaine is the newest member of the Juvederm family and is for significant facial loss. The product is FDA approved for replacing lost volume in the cheeks and temples and all areas of the mid-face. Some popular treatments you may have heard are “liquid face-lift” or “facial rejuvenation”. Voluma is an excellent product to use for mid-face volume and reshaping the aging face.
