Has your facial skin lost the volume and shape it once had? Are you ready to see the smile lines or creases around the bottom of your nose disappear?
The plump appearance of healthy skin is due to hyaluronic acid. Babies feel so nice because their skin is full of hyaluronic acid.
As you age, levels of natural hyaluronic acid in the skin decrease with time, sun exposure and other environmental factors.
In fact, one can define aging skin as the loss of hyaluronic acid.
The result? Lines, furrows and wrinkles.
Juvederm is a soft, replenishing injectable gel that is composed of hyaluronic acid. This acid is a naturally occurring sugar in the body and helps maximize the skin to help fill out wrinkles and thinning skin.
