What is Juvéderm® and what is it formulated with?
Juvéderm® is a popular, reliable dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid. It is used to treat common imperfections such as wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging on the face. Juvéderm® is injected directly into one’s facial skin using a needle, and typically contains lidocaine, which helps to numb the area being treated. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the human body that attracts water, making it great for adding volume where it is needed in the face.
How Juvéderm® injections work
Juvéderm® is a facial injectable that temporarily adds volume to the skin. It works by filling in areas of the face that have lost collagen and elastin, resulting in a more youthful appearance. The most common areas to receive Juvéderm® injections are the nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of your mouth), marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth down to the chin), and lips.
Juvéderm® contains a substance called hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in the body. When injected into the skin, it binds with water molecules to create volume. Juvéderm® injections are considered safe and effective, with minimal side effects, when administered by a medical professional with the training and experience to ensure the best results.
What are some possible side effects of Juvéderm®?
Some common side effects after Juvéderm® injections include:
These side effects are typically mild and resolve on their own.
