Juvederm is a soft but stable injectable gel made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic adic is a natural substance in your skin that assists in adding hydration and volume. Juvederm is placed in the mid to deep dermis to temporarily smooth wrinkels and fine lines.
The Juvederm dermal filler process is very fast (about 15 minutes) and you see immediate results. The downtime is minimal and you can get back to your normal routine right away. The Food and Drug Administration approved Juvederm in 2006 as the only hyaluronic acid filler that will last up to one year.
The Juvederm advantage is its supple gel uniformity that provides a more natural-looking appearance than some other products. Side effects are rare, but may include tenderness, redness, or mild pain at the site of the injection. This generally will decrease in a few days.
