Juvederm® is currently considered to be the gold standard in facial fillers, and for good reason. With its vast range of applications and its naturally-occurring primary ingredient, this popular injectable makes it possible for men and women to alter and improve their physical appearances. Best of all, with Juvederm®, there’s no set downtime and no serious risk of scarring. These are just some of the many reasons why a fast-increasing number of San Diego residents are undergoing these injections.

The Magic Behind Juvederm® Injectables

To understand why this injectable is used in any cosmetic application, it is first important to know how it works. This is a hyaluronic acid-based injectable. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is something that you naturally produce. It supports the connective tissues throughout your body and can be found in the skin and other areas. HA promotes increased hydration for ensured fluidity and elasticity. When HA is introduced into aging areas as part of a Juvederm® treatment, it instantly binds itself to nearby skin cells. Then, it starts attracting water molecules and retaining them. This produces a remarkable plumping effect that manifests as increased volume and fewer lines and creases at the surface of the skin.

Restore Lost Volume in the Face

Facial volume loss is something that everyone will experience at some point in their lives. As people grow older, bone density is lost, natural collagen stores are diminished, and even select areas of facial fat grow thin. Moreover, this usually occurs at a time when noticeable changes are also occurring in the overall integrity of the skin. This can lead to a tired look. When these changes manifest, small amounts of this powerful and FDA-approved solution can be inserted into targeted facial areas to restore the lost volume.

Get Rid of Lines and Wrinkles

One of the most noticeable and severe forms of facial aging is the development of lines and wrinkles. Fortunately, the rapid and impressive plumping action of this injectable product can instantly fill these bothersome creases in.

Augment Your Lips for a Fuller Pout

Apart from its application in wrinkle reduction, this product is also well-known for its role in non-surgical lip augmentation. If you’ve ever wanted a fuller and more sensuous-looking pout, Juvederm® injections can help you reach your goals in a quick, safe, and reliable way. When properly performed, these treatments can create a more appealing lip shape, greater balance across all facial features, and increased overall lip volume.
