Juvederm and Its Benefits

By Christopher Hankins, MD

Juvederm is dermal filler used in treatments of facial wrinkles. This is a FDA approved drug for cosmetic use on the face and body. The treatment can successively reduce the visibility of Nasolabial folds commonly known as the smile lines. Increase in the total mass of the face, removing scars and giving a fuller look to the face is effectively performed with this treatment. Other than correcting the Nasolabial folds the medicine is also widely used for correction of lips and to give them a more voluptuous look.

The benefits of using Juvederm:

  • The main constituent of the drug Juvederm is hyaluronic acid, which is naturally a constituent of the skin, muscles and tendons. When hyaluronic acid in the form of Juvederm is injected into the skin, it forms cross linkage and absorbs water as much as 1000 times of its own weight thus adding volume to the injected area.
  • Hyaluronic acid, which is the principal constituent of Juvederm, is a natural product and gets absorbed into the skin naturally within 12 hours of application under normal conditions. So the side effects of this medication are actually less. Moreover, it binds with the collagen and elastin of the skin and provides better nutrition to the cells; this naturally improves on the skin condition and texture.
  • The effects of Juvederm are exceptionally long lasting, which is the other main reason for the drug being a preferred choice of the cosmetic practitioners and patients. Once injected, the drug forms cross links and turns to gel that lasts for a longer period of time. The effect of the treatment lasts for at least 6 to 9 months depending on other health and environmental conditions. In case the patient feels like touching up the effect in between, he or she can undertake lower potency touch ups of the medicine under medical guidance.
  • The other benefit of Juvederm that has made it particularly favourite to the practitioners is the free flowing nature of the drug which provides exceptional ease of injecting. The formula is a more liquid substance and can be directly injected to the skin.

Juvederm is available in different potencies, and formulations. The Juvederm Ultra 4 is a high potency treatment that is often preferred for targeted treating of deep set wrinkles. Juvederm Volbella provides best results when applied to the lips; whereas, Juvederm Hydrate is the best medication to keep the skin hydrated naturally. All the variants of the drug are available in the online drug store at wholesale price.
