How Does Juvederm® Work?
The Juvederm® family of fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a material found in normal, healthy skin. Not only does hyaluronic acid act as a filler, but it also attracts and holds moisture inside the skin, providing more lift and volume. Because the body naturally removes the hyaluronic acid over time, Juvederm® lasts anywhere from six months to over a year, depending on the formula used.
The difference between the Juvederm® fillers comes from their arrangement of hyaluronic acid chains, which determine how the filler will behave. More viscous or thicker fillers work well for contouring and filling in deep lines and wrinkles, while more fluid fillers may work best in the lips or around the mouth. Renew MD uses these Juvederm® fillers, among others:
This dermal filler excels in the nasolabial folds and deep creases that run from the corners of the nose to the mouth. It also works well to support areas of the face that have lost volume or to reduce the appearance of scars.
This flexible filler works best in the lips, where it allows you to maintain natural movement while still adding plumping and hydration to give you fuller, more voluminous lips.
For hollow cheeks and areas under the eyes, this formula has enough resilience to add both volume and contouring to these areas. It returns natural lift and fullness, removing the appearance of hollowness and loose skin.
For the areas around the mouth, this filler can erase the appearance of lines and wrinkles while allowing all your natural facial expressions.
Am I a Good Candidate for Juvederm®?
Almost anyone can receive Juvederm®. Hyaluronic acid does not cause reactions because the body already recognizes it. Even people with a busy schedule can find 20-30 minutes to complete a treatment session and achieve the fullness and volume they want.
