Juvederm is a dermal filler based on hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the human body. It is used to help people address facial signs of aging, such as sagging and wrinkling of the skin. Juvederm works by adding volume to facial tissue through its active ingredient, hyaluronic acid, which stimulates the production of connective tissue that fills the skin (collagen). The Juvederm family consists of several products, each with different binding and concentrations of hyaluronic acid.
Each product is adapted to address specific problems when injected in different areas and depths. Juvederm fillings have a soft, jelly-like consistency and contain a small amount of lidocaine, which reduces pain. Most people notice the effects of Juvederm right away or after swelling subsides. The results usually last between six months and two years, depending on the Juvederm product used.Before undergoing a treatment with Juvederm, it is important to talk to a medical professional about your goals and aesthetic expectations.
It is also important to note that Juvederm can be safely used all over the body and will not cause cancer. However, more serious side effects are usually associated with unprofessional handling, such as inadvertent injection of Juvederm into a blood vessel.Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm and Macrolane, were previously used for non-surgical breast enhancement. However, it is important to note that these fillers are not approved for this purpose and should not be used for this purpose.
