Juvederm is soft and replenishing
Juvederm is a soft, replenishing, injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring sugar found in your body. It works by giving volume to your skin to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and thinning skin. It also works to enhance and define lips, cheeks and jaw line.
Juvederm: How Does It Work?
Hyaluronic acid injections have been shown to stimulate collagen production. Best of all, the results are instant and natural looking. In addition, there is no downtime for our Juvederm patients, and this facial filler can be used on all skin tones.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural, complex sugar found in all living cells and an important component of the skin, along with collagen and elastin. HA retains water like a sponge, absorbing more than 1,000 times its weight. This helps to attract and maintain water, hydrating your skin and increasing its volume and density.
Sun exposure, hormonal changes, and aging can all have an impact on your skin’s appearance. Over time, your skin begins to lose hyaluronic acid and collagen, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of fullness and elasticity. Talented cosmetic surgeon Dr. Douglas Grace can now reverse these signs of aging by correcting the wrinkles and folds and adding volume to your skin.
Juvederm is injected directly into the skin using a fine needle to reduce injection discomfort. The smooth consistency gel of Juvederm allows it to be administered easily and smoothly.
The unique formulation of Juvederm provides results that last up to one year. After this time, many of our Juvederm patients choose to repeat their treatment in order to maintain a supple, youthful facial appearance.
