How does Juvederm work?
When the skin contains an abundance of hyaluronic acid (HA), it will appear healthy-looking and young. As we age, sunlight and other factors reduce the amount of HA in our skin which cases skin to lose structure and volume, resulting in unwanted lines, wrinkles, and folds. A dermal filler like Juvederm is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
