Juvéderm® is one of several filler products to be approved by the FDA. It is made of hyaluronic acid and is used for corrections such as smoothing and diminishing facial folds and lines, restoring lips to a more youthful volume and definition, and providing volume to areas of the face where the process of aging has caused hollowness. Juvéderm® is a smooth gel and therefore lends itself to a more natural looking correction of imperfections. It has been demonstrated to be safe on all skin types and ethnicities and is appropriate for all ages. There is no risk of allergic reaction with the use of this product.
As with all dermal fillers, Juvéderm® is injected directly into the skin with a micro needle. There is little risk of any side effects.
Women who are pregnant or breast feeding, or patients with weakened immune systems are not candidates for treatments with Juvéderm® .
