As we age, wrinkles and sagging skin are inevitable. Unfortunately, for women and men alike, aging skin goes hand in hand with lowered confidence. Luckily, there is a way to boost that confidence back up by adding volume to sagging cheeks, smoothing out pesky wrinkles and providing an overall more youthful appearance.Jevederm

What is Juvederm? 
Juvederm is an FDA-approved injectable gel filler, used to plump cheeks and smooth wrinkles. It is a family made up of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, with lasting results of up to a year. Approved for cosmetic use in 2006, Juvederm has two forms:

  • Juvederm XC: This form of Juvederm is used to smooth lines and wrinkles around the mouth, such as marionette lips, smile lines, vertical lip lines and corner lines. Juvederm XC contains lidocaine, making the procedure less painful, and patients can see results for up to one year.
  • Juvederm Voluma XC: Juvederm Voluma XC is used to plump the apples of the cheeks and the surrounding areas. It can provide results for up to two years, and contains lidocaine to promote comfort during the procedure.

While made by the same manufacturer as Botox, the two work differently. Botox targets the muscles lying under the skin, essentially reducing the activity of those muscles to cut out the source of lines and wrinkles. Juvederm actually fills the skin to smooth wrinkles and plump cheeks.

What makes Juvederm different from other fillers?

  • Versatile: Juvederm has been studied in all skin types and is the first hyaluronic acid filler proven to be equally effective in persons of color.
  • Lasting: Since the Juvederm XC formula uses Hylacross technology, providing cross-linked hyaluronic acids, results are immediate and last for up to a year with just one session.
  • Easy: Juvederm contains lidocaine, an option that comes at an extra cost with other fillers. Typical treatments last only about 15 minutes with minimal downtime.
  • Safe: Since hyaluronic acids are biodegradable, Juvederm breaks down over time and is safely absorbed into the body unnoticed and with no effects.
