Juvederm dermal fillers are a "next-generation" injectable gel that helps to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. As you age, your skin loses collagen and your facial structure begins to change. Over time, as the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish, facial wrinkles and folds begin to form. Several troublesome areas like your "smile lines" or nasolabial folds (creases from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth) can be improved by simply adding volume to your skin. Juvederm injectable dermal fillers have the FDA's seal of approval and provide a smooth, natural look and feel. The FDA has approved Juvederm for the following skin treatments:
- Nasolabial Folds
- Marionette Lines
- Vertical Lip Lines
- Lip Augmentation
All hyaluronic-acid dermal fillers, like Juvederm, are eventually absorbed by the body within about six to nine months. Since hyaluronic acid is a substance that is normally found in the skin, muscles, and tendons, the use of Juvederm is a safe and effective approach for facial rejuvenation and plumping of the lips. Unlike fat transfer, which is often used to treat broad areas of facial volume loss, Juvederm dermal fillers are used to target specific facial areas. A more advanced uses of Juvederm is for treatment of the hollows and grooves around the eyes. The results of facial rejuvenation using dermal fillers are excellent and can last several months depending upon the exact location of the treatment site.
