If you suffer from pronounced wrinkles and/or folds, Juvederm may be able to help erase the lines of time.
Juvederm is an FDA-approved dermal filler that specifically treats moderate to severe wrinkles. A doctor injects a transparent filler, which includes hyaluronic acid, a natural complex sugar that boosts skin elasticity, into the area. The result -- a smoother and more youthful appearance. Juvederm works by lifting and adding volume to the wrinkles and folds being treated. It can last up to nine months, and for some patients, even longer, after which the compound is naturally absorbed into the body.
Side effects are rare, but may include tenderness and redness. Very few people experience swelling, bumps and bruises, all of which disappear within days.
