Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid gel that is injected beneath the skin to smooth wrinkles and folds on the face. Some of the main components of healthy skin are water, fat, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. Specifically, hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent. Therefore, Juvederm injections add volume to the skin, and restore a naturally smoother appearance to the face.

Similar to other hyaluronic acid based injectable fillers - such as Restylane Juvederm has been proven to last longer than collagen injections as it maintains its shape using the body's own moisture. Fat Injections, although typically much longer lasting, are a more involved procedure and typically require more down-time than Juvederm.
Lines, wrinkles, and fold form in aging skin due to volume loss
Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm are used to fill in and smooth out lines, wrinkles, and folds
Problems that can be improved by volume enhancement of the aging face using Juvederm injections include:
- Frown lines between eyebrows
- Deep-set eyes
- Tear trough area
- Nasolabial folds
- Droopy corners of the mouth
- Lip lines
- Thinning lips
- Sunken acne scars
Juvederm injections are performed every day of the week at the Naficy Center by our highly trained staff of injectors. Results are immediate although the treated area will continue to improve in appearance for a few days after treatment. As with all injections there is a small risk of bruising, which may be, minimized by avoiding medication that thin the blood.
