Juvederm is a Hyaluronic Acid (HA) gel that is approved by the FDA to smooth facial wrinkles and folds. It is the first hyaluronic acid cosmetic filler to be FDA approved for up to 1 year.
Juvederm Injectable Gel is especially effective medical spa treatment for correcting moderate to severe nasolabial folds (creases or “parentheses” running from the nose to the mouth area). The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm bonds to the water naturally present beneath the surface of the skin creating added fullness. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occuring substance that is formulated by Allergan, the maker of Botox Cosmetic, into a smooth consistency gel that can instantly take years off of the appearance in both women and men. Juvederm can also be an effective spa treatment for adding volume to thin and aging lips. Juvederm is also used in the cheek area for volume.
