Juvederm, a dermal filler is the latest advance in dermal filler options from Allerga, the makers of BOTOX Cosmetic. This malleable smooth gel that flows easily into the skin, creating a smooth, natural look and feel that provides long lasting correction of facial wrinkles and lip enhancement. In addition Juvederm contains the highest concentration of non-animal, cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any dermal filler currently available. These unique attributes provide optimal results with a single treatment in the majority of patients and deliver sustained results for up to nine months or longer.
The active ingredient in Juvederm dermal filler, hyaluronic acid, is a naturally occurring, substance found in the human body and in all living organisms. The ability of the cells to produce hyaluronic acid diminishes with age, often resulting in the formation of wrinkles and folds as the skin loses volume. Among other things, hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin and adds volume, contributing to the overall appearance of the skin.
