Juvederm is a collection of fillers used to treat volume loss and improve facial features all over the face. It is made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid (HA), a molecule that occurs naturally in the skin. HA can hold up to a thousand times its weight in water, making it an important moisturizing agent for the skin. As we age, our skin can dry out and lose its elasticity due to the decline of HA production.
The HA molecules in Juvederm Voluma, Volbella and Vollure are modified using a patented technology called Vycross. Allergan is the company that makes Juvederm products and is the same company that makes Botox, Kybella and Coolsculpting. Juvederm Ultra XC is a unique dermal product with properties that make it ideal for filling in fine lines and wrinkles in and around the lips. There is little to no downtime and fewer office visits are required, as Juvederm products outlast their rivals.
