Juvederm is a new hyaluranon dermal filler for wrinkles and lines, lip enhancement and volume replacement
Juvederm from Allergan is a new hyaluranon dermal filler which is available for wrinkles and lines, lip enhancement and volume replacement. It differs in consistency to other hyaluranon dermal fillers - it is softer and tends to spread more uniformly in and under the skin for very natural results.
Juvederm comes in four forms:
- Juvederm Refine for very fine lines.
- Juvederm Ultra for fine lines and wrinkles particularly around the eyes and smile lines around the mouth.
- Juvederm Ultra Plus for filling folds like the area between nose and mouth.
- Juvederm Voluma which is the thickest product and is used for large area volume replacement such as the cheekbones, chin and cheeks to produce a liquid facelift. Voluma used in this way recreates youthful fullness to the face by providing support for the skin. This technique is sometimes referred to as the liquid facelift or volumising. At Palm Clinic we perform the procedure using a technique that makes bruising highly unlikely so that you can return to work straight away with confidence.
