What is Juvederm?
Juvéderm is a same-day treatment that can be used to give you a long-lasting and natural beauty lift. It can smoothen wrinkles and folds, give your mouth a fuller, more sensuous form, or restore facial volume which has been lost with age. Results are immediate and discrete, with little or no recovery time.
Juvéderm is made from NASHA gel (Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid). HA is found naturally in our skin. The resilience and youthful contours of your skin and its ability to counter the effects of time, wind and weather, owes much to hyaluronic acid (HA). Juvéderm Volite contains cross-linked hyaluronic acid which allow the duration of efficacy to be much longer than the normal HAs. It can absorb water 100 times its weight to give our skin its youthful, plump appearance. This marvelous molecule is now used in most dermal fillers to delay aging. Commonly known as “Liquid Facelift” which not only restores lost volume, but also fills up wrinkles, and lifts aging skin. This treatment can improve skin’s hydration in 1 treatment for up to 9 months.
The consistency of the NASHA gel in Juvéderm is custom tailored to match the tissue structures in your skin. Nutrients, oxygen and hormones pass freely though the gel, maintaining the health and vitality of your skin. Injections of Juvéderm stimulates your body to produce more of its own natural collagen in the treated areas, and this can contribute to improve which you will experience gradually. Since the body has its own system for absorbing hyaluronic acid, it slowly disappears over time without a trace.
Juvederm Volite is one of the products that can be used to hydrate the lips as well.
