Juvederm is a dermal injection that is commonly used to fill wrinkles, particularly laugh lines on the side of the face. The nature of it’s chemical structure allows it to absorb water and bond with natural skin components, such as collagen and elastin. So not only does it hydrate the skin, it also adds volume and provides flexible support for tissue augmentation. Also, Juvederm is made of a sterile form of hyalauric acid, which is a common substance found in the body. When it is used to fill deep lines, the results are quite natural in appearance.
Hyaluronic Acid Filler Comparable to Juvederm- Video of Laugh Line Procedure
The results shown on the patient in this video are an example of smile/laugh lines that have been injected with a dermal filler called Hydrelle, which is no longer being offered at the Office of Dr. U. It is very similar to Juvederm. Both brands are made of hyalauronic acid and the results are identical.
Dr. Umar offers Juvederm XC, a combination of juvederm and lidocaine which is used to help reduce any pain associated with the injection. Comparative studies in research are performed on two different types of dermal injections, using one brand on one side of the face and another brand on the other side of the face. Juvederm managed to outperform another leading brand. Patients and other observers noticed a big difference between the nasolabial folds treated with Juvederm on one side of the face versus the other side treated with the older brand.
Juvederm requires ongoing injections approximately every 4-9 months, since it eventually gets absorbed by the body.
Although smile/laugh lines benefit quite remarkably from Juvederm, this dermal filler can also be used for miscellaneous lines and wrinkles as well.
Additionally, Juvederm is also used to add volume to lips because of its ability to augment, hydrate and provide structural support to tissue.
