We have received an increasing number of queries about Juvederm here at our Cleveland facial rejuvenation practice for the past months. This may have to do with the FDA approval of Juvederm Voluma last Fall. If you’ve been thinking of getting Juvederm but is still baffled on what it can specifically do for you, read on below to learn more about the popular dermal filler!
A Quick Lesson on Hyaluronic Acid
Before we delve into how a Juvederm injection can help you, let’s get to know hyaluronic acid first. As a naturally-occurring substance, hyaluronic acid is abundant in your skin, making it appear plump and youthful. As you age, your supply of hyaluronic acid is diminished resulting to the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and folds. Lack of hyaluronic acid is one the main reasons of the appearance of nasolabial folds (lines around your nose and mouth).
Juvederm Replenishes Your Supply of Hyaluronic Acid
Men and women who had problems with nasolabial folds were overjoyed when Juvederm was introduced. As a dermal filler with smooth consistency, it contains hyaluronic acid which has been proven to be biocompatible, safe and effective in restoring facial volume.
Specifically, Juvederm is the ideal filler to improve the appearance of folds and other areas that has lost volume. There are different Juvederm formulations but all of them are made from hyaluronic acid which is a natural to our body.
Juvederm Ultra is less viscous making it a better injection for fine wrinkles and lips. On the other hand, Juvederm Ultra Plus has higher viscosity and is more appropriate for facial folds around the nose and mouth area. Juvederm Voluma, the most recent formulation, is the first and only hyaluronic acid-based filler which can restore volume loss in the cheeks.
