Have we discovered the fountain of youth? Research shows that the active ingredient in JUVÉDERM®, hyaluronic acid (HA), refills the facial volume loss we experience with aging. 90% of patients receiving facial fillers use an HA filler. JUVÉDERM® is the world’s #1 selling collection of fillers.
Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in our body, as each of our cells uses hyaluronic acid to keep our skin and body hydrated and plump. Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of this naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid. But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin. The lack of hyaluronic acid causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds – like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM® will smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours.
Using a JUVÉDERM® dermal filler is a safe and effective way to replace the hyaluronic acid your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. Whether you want fuller lips or to simply minimize the fine lines around your lips, JUVÉDERM® will do that! If you’d like to smooth the “parentheses” or “smile lines” around your mouth (also called nasolabial folds and marionette lines), JUVÉDERM®’s smooth gel will do this subtly and naturally.
