In the category of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, Juvederm® is one of the most popular. Hyaluronic acid soft-tissue injections are a type of minimally invasive treatment that is widely implemented for correcting signs of aging such as folds and wrinkles. The injection is especially preferred for corners of the mouth, smile lines, and lip enhancement.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin and muscles and is capable of absorbing up to 1,000 times its own weight in water, which is how it helps create more volume and fill wrinkles on the face. Approved by the FDA in 2006, the hyaluronic acid filler Juvederm® is one of many dermal fillers effective for producing a lifted and fuller look that can last up to nine months after the procedure.
