Continue reading to learn more about what you need to know about Juvederm.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is an injectable filler that is derived from hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance that is found underneath the surface of a person’s skin. Once injected, Juvederm can restore fullness in the face, smooths out any wrinkles and eliminates fine lines.

How does Juvederm work?

Over time, our body will naturally slow the production of hyaluronic acid. This occurs due to the natural aging process, sun exposure and exposure to free radicals. Juvederm replaces lost hyaluronic acid and targets the problem areas such as the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It helps your epidermis maintain that smooth facial structure you had when you were younger and produced more hyaluronic acid.

How long does Juvederm last?

Although the results are long-lasting, Juvederm isn’t a permanent solution. In some cases, it can last up to one year, depending on the patient’s metabolism. Everyone can react to Juvederm differently, so results will differ from person to person. Juvederm is 100 percent safe and can be touched up at any time with very little to no side effects.

If you’re ready to rejuvenate your appearance and restore lost volume, Juvederm may be the right for you. Contact NuWave Medical and let us help you recapture a more youthful appearance.
