Since the development of dermal fillers, Hyaluronic acid has been regarded as somewhat of a “miracle compound” for the reduction of lines and the improvement of facial contours. Among the various Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, Juvéderm™ sets itself apart with a smooth gel consistency, ideal for use in deeper lines around the nose, mouth, and chin, as well as the cheeks. The cross-linking technology used to make the Juvéderm™ filler promotes the regeneration of collagen in deeper layers of skin, aiding in the longevity of results. The depth at which Juvéderm™ injections are administered leads to beautiful, natural-looking volume.
Benefits of Juvéderm™ viscoelastic gel consistency include:
- Non-animal based Hyaluronic acid
- No skin testing required
- High biocompatibility
- Minimal swelling compared to other products

What is Juvéderm™?
Juvéderm™ is made of hyaluronic acid which is a normal component of our skin, people refer to it as a filler.
It is the filler I like the most because it seems the most natural, other fillers that I have used sometimes they are not as smooth. Juvéderm™ smoothens out very naturally.
Where can Juvéderm™ be used?
It is used mostly for deeper lines like around the mouth, from the corner of the nose down to the corner of the mouth and from the corner of the mouth down to the jawline.
So, the size of the chin is a very popular area where we give Juvéderm™.
Are there any side effects?
Usually, there are no side effects, but very rarely you can get a bruise. which can be covered with makeup.
How does it work?
It’s considered a filler so you really are putting back something you have naturally lost. So, if someone has deep folds around the mouth they appear much less, and usually, it lasts for around six months.
An interesting thing is that when people are consistent with it and get the injections about every six months it starts to stimulate our own collagen, and so sometimes people have to do it only every year or two.
