What is Juvederm?

Juvederm® dermal filler is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved in 2006 for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds to improve skin’s fullness, texture and elasticity. Juvederm® is a non-surgical, injectable gel used to restore the skin’s volume which age has depleted. This gel implant consists of cross-linked strands of hyaluronic acid, a natural complex sugar that promotes skin elasticity, providing a smooth and supple appearance. Once the product is injected into the mid-to deep dermal layer of the face, it lifts and adds volume to the wrinkles and folds in the treatment area. This product is biocompatible, supplementing the body’s natural hyaluronic acid, and with time will naturally be absorbed into the body.

Juvederm® is offered in two formulations

Juvederm® Ultra, for areas where subtle volume enhancement is required (such as forehead wrinkles, frown lines in Baton Rouge Juvederm Specialists - he Oaks at Goodwood Med Spa
between the brow, perioral vertical lip lines), and Juvederm® Ultra Plus, for correction of severely deep folds and wrinkles (such as nasolabial folds, enhancing lip volume, and for reshaping cheek contours).

These facial characteristics make an individual appear older, angry, sad or tired.
