Juvederm is a gel filler used to treat problem areas around the mouth and nose. When we are young our skin contains a large amount of hyaluronic acid which works to hydrate our skin. As we age we lose some of our supply of hyaluronic acid resulting in the formation of wrinkles and folds.
Juvederm is used to restore our supply of hyaluronic acid. The gel is injected directly into the wrinkles and folds. It acts like a filler, smoothing out those problem areas. The treatment is administered in the doctor's office. The procedure takes about 15-20 minutes and can last up to one year.
