Juvederm is a dermal gel filler that can instantly smooth away wrinkles around the mouth and nose. Just one treatment can achieve soft, smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year. Juvederm can be used to treat:
Smile lines or nasolabial folds. These lines extend from the nostrils to the corners of the mouth.
Marionette lines. These are vertical wrinkles and folds under the corners of the mouth, giving the appearance of sagging or a frowning expression.
Vertical lip lines. These lines are formed around the lips as a result of moving the lip muscle over time, excessive sun exposure, smoking and/or stress.
Young and healthy skin contains plenty of a naturally-occurring moisturizer called hyaluronic acid (HA). However, aging, sunlight exposure and other environmental factors deplete the HA in the skin, causing the skin to lose volume and definition. This causes unwanted facial wrinkles and skin folds. Using Juvederm is a safe, non-invasive and effective way to replace the HA that the skin has lost, bringing back its fullness and diminishing the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds. With a fine needle, Juvederm combined with lidocaine is injected under the skin to fill the soft tissue of the dermis. Juvederm adds fullness and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and nasolabial folds instantly.
