JUVÉDERM® is the number one selling dermal filler in the US. It is a hyaluronic acid filler, derived from a natural substance that is found throughout the human body. In its natural form, hyaluronic acid is a sugar found in the skin and joints. Hyaluronic fillers are synthetic, biodegradable versions of these naturally occurring sugars and are considered to be extremely safe.
JUVÉDERM® is a smooth gel filler that will instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. It works by helping to replace the hyaluronic acid your skin has lost with age, adding volume to 'fill out' and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm can smooth out the lines along the sides of your nose and mouth for up to one year with only one treatment. Juvederm is the only hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved to last up to 1 year with initial treatment.
Everyone’s skin ages differently and JUVÉDERM® may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas, from smile lines to vertical lip lines. Juvederm can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore your natural contours. JUVÉDERM® is available in two formulations—JUVÉDERM® Ultra for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus, a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and facial wrinkles.
Juvederm is priced per 1mL syringe.
