What is Juvederm and how does it work?
Juvederm VOLUMA® is an injectable hyaluronic volumiser that provides long-lasting restoration for facial volumes through injection. The results are immediate, even, and very natural looking.
Juvederm facial fillers used by skin are based on hyaluronic acid, which increases water in your skin to plump and smooth the texture of the skin.
Juvederm can restore the face’s balance and heart-shaped proportions, revolumising facial hollows and lost volume and recontouring the cheeks, cheekbones, and nose for a fuller, softer, more youthful appearance. Juvederm helps recapture the facial volume that age and weight loss can diminish.
How does Juvederm benefit?
Juvederm restores youthful volume to cheeks, cheekbones, and chin that have become hollow or thin due to weight loss or age-related facial fat loss. It can also rejuvenate the effects of a sagging facelift.
