Frequently asked questions about Juvederm
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an injectable gel that is colorless hyaluronic acid. It gets injected into the facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth.
What makes Juvederm different from other dermal fillers?
Juvederm is the only hyaluronic acid filler that is FDA approved to last up to one year. The process of making Juvederm creates a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid for long-lasting results. Its consistency is smooth so that it flows easily into the skin and provides a completely natural look and feel.
How does Juvederm work?
Dr. Khemsara uses a fine needle to inject the gel into the mid to deep dermis. The Juvederm fills in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as “smile lines” (nasolabial folds) and “marionette lines” (oral commissures). Juvederm temporarily adds volume and smoothness to facial tissue and thereby restores a more youthful appearance to the face. Results typically last six months to one year.
Juvederm, a hyaluronic acid, can absorb up to 1000 times its own weight in water, thereby adding new volume under the surface of sagging skin. It also binds with collagen – the material that supports human facial skin – and elastin to move more basic nutrients into the skin. Juvedem also continues working as time goes on by adding more collagen to the face.
