Juvederm is a smooth consistency gel, made of hyaluronic acid, which provides a smooth, natural look and feel to your skin. Juvederm is used to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose and requires just one treatment.
Our skin changes as we age and over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form.
Juvederm lasts up to one year and the injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are seen immediately. There is minimal recovery or downtime.
