What is Juvederm?
Juvéderm is a Dermal Filler, it was first launched in the UK in 2001. Since then Juvederm has been improved and a range of products have been added to the Juvederm portfolio.
It is made from a cross-linked hyaluronic acid similar to the body’s own natural collagen.
It is non-animal in origin and does not require a patch test.
The hyaluronic acid slowly breaks down over months eventually leaving no trace of the filler.
The gel is injected into the skin with a very fine needle or a cannula. It plumps out the skin; filling lines, and deeper folds it can also restore signs of ageing by volumising the face. It is a safe treatment available in different formulations.
Juvederm Ultra has been available since 2008. It was the first filler to contain local anaesthetic for improved comfort.
Dr Johnson has seen how this filler can last up to a year if not longer. How long the filler lasts depends on the treatment area it also depends on the metabolism of the individual.
