Juvéderm is a cosmetic filler used to fill in facial wrinkles and deep folds. It is manufactured by Allergan, the same company that manufactures BOTOX. Juvéderm was FDA approved over ten years ago and has a record of incredible efficacy and safety. Since Juvéderm is made of hyaluronic acid, a compound found naturally in your skin, no skin tests are necessary to check for allergic reactions.
Juvéderm is a flexible filler that can be injected to correct many facial areas. The most common area is the nasolabial fold (parentheses lines running from the creases of your nose to the corners of your mouth. The lips, cheeks, hollows under the eyes, and marionette lines of the chin can also be treated with Juvéderm.
Juvéderm injections last 9-12 months depending on the area being injected and the amount of correction obtained with the treatment.
