It is natural for skin to lose volume over time, causing wrinkles and folds to appear. Dermal fillers are injections used to reduce the effects of aging by filling in creases and lifting the face. Juvederm XC and Juvederm Plus are just such fillers.
Juvederm consists of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in your skin. Hyaluronic acid helps provide your skin with fullness, elasticity and hydration. As such, treatment with Juvederm reduces folds and wrinkles and lifts the face, while leaving you with a natural look that takes years off your age.
Results typically last between six and 12 months. Popular areas for Juvederm injection include along the area from the smile lines at the mouth to under the nose, lips and around the mouth, and upper cheeks to provide facial lift.
