Juvederm® Injectable Gel by Allergan, Inc.

Juvederm® Injectable Gel by Allergan, Inc. is a popular treatment for laugh lines and the lines around the mouth. The appearance of wrinkles and facial folds can be smoothed by adding structure and volume underneath and bringing sunken skin back up to the surface. Generally, this is done by injecting materials into the skin to achieve a temporary beneficial effect. When administered by a trained healthcare professional, you can be sure that the materials have been proven safe to use and that the procedure will be properly performed.

Juvederm® is a form of hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural complex sugar found in all living cells and one of the major components of the dermis connective tissue matrix, along with collagen and elastin. HA retains water like a sponge, absorbing more than 1000 times its weight. This helps to attract and maintain water, hydrating your skin and increasing its volume and density.

Juvederm® is a smooth gel filler that is eased under your skin to instantly smooth out those wrinkles or folds that look like parentheses along the side of your nose and mouth. The results are not just instant, they are so mooth and natural, only you and your healthcare professional will know! The special cross-linking formula developed by Allergan, Inc. can produce that last for up to six months or longer. Since each patient is different, results can vary.
