What is Juverderm?
Juvederm is a brand of a substance manufactured with hyaluronic acid as a gel dermal filler. This gel is then injected into the targeted areas of the skin for cosmetic benefits similar to Botox, but with a longer-lasting life. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is produced inside the human body which has made Juvederm a safe, and highly accepted substance to medical professionals. It is the only injection approved by the FDA with the ability to last up to one year from when the injection was first administered.
How Does a Juvederm Treatment Work?
As hyaluronic acid is proved scientifically to be a rapid water absorbed, that is the basis of how a Juvederm treatment works, as it accumulates volume and mass once introduced into the targeted areas of the skin by method of injection. When Juvederm is injected just underneath sagging or wrinkling skin, the gel soon increases in volume and stretches and smooths the skin that is above it. Hyaluronic acid also has the ability to latch on to collagen and elastin in the skin, and therefore promotes the distribution of essential nutrients to the tissues of the skin. This amazing innovative treatment is proving to be a rewarding investment for many patients.
