It’s no wonder doctors and medical aestheticians around the world make use of the full Juvederm line.
What is Juvederm, and how to use it correctly?
As already mentioned, Juvederm is a dermal filler ideal for cosmetic treatments for those with visible signs of aging. Its active substance – hyaluronic acid (HA) – is very close to the one that occurs naturally in the human body. It also stimulates the body’s natural HA and collagen production, so the effect may last even longer and improve overall skin condition. Moreover, thanks to it’s natural characteristics, the product causes minimal side effects and doesn’t lead to severe complications or allergic reactions. Its consistency of a smooth gel makes the administration comfortable and painless, which is ideal for patients with low pain tolerance.
As with all dermal fillers, Juvederm products come in different variations and formulas, designed for various aesthetic purposes. The most popular ones include Juvederm Ultra 3, Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Volbella and many others. The various Juvederm formulations vary in their density, hyaluronic acid concentration, effect durability and are chosen by a specialist depending on the patient’s skin type and condition, age, problems in target areas, etc. Juvederm treatments can achieve not only youthful-looking skin in patients but can also help with facial contouring and lost volume restoration.
Juvederm dermal filler benefits
With the help of even just one treatment, Juvederm can help achieve a youthful appearance and natural-looking results. Not only that, but Juvederm is also the only dermal filler that is FDA-approved to last up to one year, while other fillers are mainly effective for six to eight months. Here are some other major benefits of Juvederm:
Juvederm lasts longer than other injectable fillers
If patients include maintenance treatments every 5-6 months into their routine, patients can significantly reduce facial wrinkles and saggy skin for a very long time. Once on a consistent treatment routine, the aging process will noticeably slow down.
Juvederm doesn’t cause allergic reactions
As it is a non-animal hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler, it is absorbed by the body perfectly. Of course, there’s still a small possibility of complications and minimal side effects, but the chances are much smaller than other injectables.

Thanks to the hyaluronic acid in the product’s composition, not only skin volume and skin structure improves – the skin becomes more hydrated thanks to the natural production of elastin and HA, which are stimulated after the first injection.
