What is Juvéderm® wrinkle filler treatment?

Young skin is moisturised and kept hydrated from within by hyaluronic acid (HA). As we get older, the hyaluronic acid content of our skin decreases and fine lines start to appear on the face. Sun, diet and genetic factors all play their part in causing wrinkles, with saggy skin and skin folds causing fat loss.

Juvéderm® is a leading range of dermal fillers formulated specifically for the face to fill fine lines and wrinkles instantly for a natural look and feel. Each facial filler is a gel made of hyaluronic acid – a substance that occurs naturally within the body. Juvéderm® is smoother than most hyaluronic acid dermal filler gels and therefore easier to inject and integrate fully just beneath the surface of the skin. The hyaluronic acid within the gel absorbs moisture which helps to keep the skin hydrated.
