What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a facial injection that rids your skin of unattractive lines and wrinkles. It reduces the appearance of smile lines, which stretch like parenthesis from your nose to the sides of your mouth. This product also makes your skin firm, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, and softening deep folds.

All of these uses are really wonderful, but this particular injection does even more than that. Besides reducing the look of wrinkles and lines, Juvederm also has a couple of other uses.

What are the Uses of Juvederm?

Because Juvederm can be used to reduce wrinkles, it can also be used to fill in the marks from scars. Scars can be filled in in a similar way that wrinkles are, since they are both indents in the skin. When you inject a filler that plumps out the skin beneath, making your skin firm and rejuvenated, your wrinkles, lines, or scars will be minimized and your face will be clear in no time.

Juvederm has another use as well. As we age, not only do we get lines, but our lips begin to lose some of their luscious volume. Well, this injection can help keep your lips plump and shapely for a young and glamorous look.

How Does Juvederm Work?

This injection is made largely of hyaluronic acid, which is a protein found in skin, muscles and connective tissues. It’s naturally occurring in your skin, and is part of what makes your skin look nice and youthful.

As we age, sunlight and other damage reduces the amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin, which is why wrinkles and lines form. By replacing this protein by injection, you get natural looking, long lasting smooth skin.

After only an hour of your time to get the injection, you will enjoy your fresh youthful skin for months. What could be better?
