Juvederm is a dermal filler manufactured by Allergan, the company which also manufactures Botox. It is a hyaluronic acid based filler similar to Restylane. However, JUVDERM is a smooth gel that flows consistently and easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel. Juvderm is effective in smoothening “smile lines” or parentheses (nasolabial foldsthe creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last up to 6 months or more. Juvederm can be used virtually anywhere on the face, with most success in the lips, nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth), and the marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth downward to the jawline).
