How Does Juvederm Work?

Juvederm® is a non-surgical, injectable skin treatment that is popular with many of our Phoenix-area patients. However, it’s not quite as well-known as BOTOX®, and you might not be completely aware of how this treatment works.

Juvederm® is part of a family of injectable treatments known as “dermal fillers.” It contains hyaluronic acids, which are naturally occurring substances in your body that keep your skin plump, moisturized and attractive.

With age comes a decrease in the amount of hyaluronic acid our bodies produce. This can leave the skin of your face looking worn, aged and sunken. This can prevent you from achieving the youthful, vibrant appearance you desire.

Juvederm® works by introducing more of the hyaluronic acids under your skin. It plumps and adds volume to the skin in the treatment areas, which can include:

  • Around the mouth
  • Around the nose
  • The cheeks
  • The lips

Because Juvederm® is made from naturally occurring substances, there’s little risk of allergic reaction. It’s a widely performed procedure and comes with few side effects or complications. Our knowledgeable cosmetic surgeons will help you determine if the procedure is right you.
