What is a Juvéderm Injection?
Patients who are looking for a solution to smoothing out their facial wrinkles and folds can benefit from a Juvéderm injection. A Juvéderm injection is a colorless dermal filler that is made from hyaluronic acid that smooth out lines and wrinkles in the face. There are different Juvéderm formulations, all of which are made from hyaluronic acid, which is a natural to our body. Juvéderm ultra has less viscosity, making it a better injection for fine wrinkles, dermal injections and lips. Juvéderm ultra plus has higher viscosity and is more appropriate for more significant wrinkles and deeper injections. This works best for facial folds around the nose and mouth area. This is also a good treatment option for patients who want to add volume to their lips to make them fuller. Once introduced into the skin, Juvéderm will immediately add volume and restore skin smoothness and hydration.
The active ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body. Patients can have peace of mind when choosing this treatment because it is naturally occurring in the body, will cause no toxicity, and will be degraded by the body’s own natural processes.

The XC format contains lidocaine, which makes the procedure more comfortable for patients. Since it is made from hyaluronic acid, it makes the process convenient, since no allergy testing is required and the procedure has less downtime for patients compared to other cosmetic surgery procedures.
