Juvederm

Juvederm is an injectable gel that replaces the Hyaluronic Acid your skin has lost, bring back volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. Many of the lines around the mouth, like the ones from your nose to the corners of your mouth and the ones on your upper lip can be minimized with the use of Juvéderm. Juvéderm will typically last about 6 months.

Juvéderm is an injectable filler (injectable facial filler), is used by cosmetic, dermatological, and plastic surgeons to soften deep folds and reduce wrinkles in the faces of patients. The substance is largely hyaluronic acid, a substance normally found in the skin, muscles, and tendons of mammals.

Approved in June 2006 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Juvéderm’s prime use is removing nasolabial folds, or “smile lines,” creases of skin which run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth. It is also used as a lip augmentation agent, and to fill in hollow places and scars on the face. However, all hyaluronic acid facial filler products are eventually absorbed by the body, usually within six to nine months, causing the patient to undergo repeat injections to maintain the younger look.

Juvéderm is also used by physicians to plump lips, which also lose fat and internal shape with normal aging. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juv%C3%A9derm
