Juvederm ™ is a smooth, injectable gel that represents the “next generation” in dermal fillers. Like Restylane, Juvederm’s secret weapon is hyaluronic acid—a complex sugar that occurs naturally in the body and develops the volume and elasticity of the skin.

Since receiving FDA approval in 2006, Juvederm has become one of the most popular injectable fillers on the market. By cross-linking its hyaluronic acid components into a gelatinous state, Juvederm is able to flow easily into the skin, creating a smooth, natural look. The long-lasting gel essentially binds the body’s natural elastin and collagen together, maintaining a fuller, more youthful appearance for up to six months or more.  

Studies have shown that hyaluronic acid not only adds collagen to the face, but it also helps prevent the deterioration of existing collagen, as well. With the results to back up the research, Juvederm has quickly established itself as one the most successful, modern means of combating nasolabial folds—or smiles lines—as well as other hollow areas or scars on the face. Juvederm is also commonly utilized as an agent for lip augmentation.  

Whether you choose to undergo a procedure for wrinkle removal or lip augmentation, the results will be evident very quickly with Juvederm. Side effects are typically minor and temporary, and unlike a major surgical procedure, you won’t need a long recovery time to return to your normal, everyday life.  

For people who have struggled to find a compatible product for darker skin tones, Juvederm is the only hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has proven safe and effective with patients of all skin types and colors. It is also an environmentally safe product, free of animal-derived ingredients and fully biodegradable.  

As is the case with all dermal fillers, repeated injections over time will be necessary to maintain the desired effects. However, Allardan—the manufacturer of Juvederm—does offer two alternative brands, Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus, which are purported to last up to one whole year
