Juvederm® Dermal Fillers
Wipe Out Your Wrinkles and Restore Your Youthful Face

The fact is, if you want to maintain your fresh and youthful skin, you need to shell out considerable money for anti-aging products, supplements, and even facial cosmetic surgery.
But going under the knife is not an option everyone is comfortable with.
If you’re one of those people looking for a more cost-effective and non-invasive way to reverse the signs of aging on your skin, Juvederm® dermal fillers might be the best choice for you.

What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a family of injectable dermal fillers that contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that retains water in your skin, keeping your tissues well-lubricated.
As time goes by, you start losing hyaluronic acid, causing your face to lose moisture and volume. It then leads to the development of the classic signs of aging, like jowls on the cheeks, deep wrinkles and fine lines, and skin elasticity loss.
Juvederm® injections add temporary volume to the skin, resulting in a smoother and more youthful facial appearance. It can treat fine lines and wrinkles and plump up different areas of your face, such as the cheeks, lips, and nasolabial folds.
These fillers are created using Hylacross technology, a unique manufacturing process that gives Juvederm a smooth, gel-like consistency, making it last for a long time.
What are the Fillers in the Juvederm® Family?
Juvederm® sports a variety of dermal fillers specially made to treat specific areas of the face.
When choosing a type, cosmetic plastic surgeons and patients often consider the following qualities:
- G Prime (G’) – refers to a filler’s elasticity or firmness, or its ability to retain its shape during movement. High G’ fillers can be used to lift and fill deeper lines and folds, while low G’ fillers are best for more delicate areas.
- Water Affinity – describes a filler’s ability to retain moisture
- Hyaluronic Acid Concentration – the higher it is, the thicker and more gel-like the consistency is
- Cohesivity – refers to a filler’s ability to spread
Check out the following filler types under the Juvederm® family.
