Fortunately, many non-surgical treatments are available that can help rejuvenate the skin and restore its youthful appearance. One of the most popular of these treatments is Juvederm®, a family of dermal fillers The Juvederm® family of fillers can address many different signs of aging for smoother skin and more defined features.
What is Juvederm®?

What is Juvederm® Made Of?
Juvederm® is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that helps hydrate and plump the skin by holding onto water molecules. Each Juvederm® formula uses a different type of cross-linking to give it unique properties. These include:
- Juvederm® Volbella™ to plump and enhance your lips
- Juvederm® Voluma™ for adding volume and definition to your cheeks
- Juvederm® Ultra Plus for erasing lines and wrinkles
Many Juvederm® formulas also contain lidocaine. This local anesthetic numbs the area, so you feel less with each injection. Ensure your injection specialist knows if you have ever reacted to lidocaine or another injectable numbing medication.
