What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a dermal filler composed primarily of hyaluronic acid. This is a substance already found in the human body that acts to provide volume to our skin. The other well-known filler composed of hyaluronic acid is Restylane®. In general these two fillers are very similar in terms of their indications, risks, and longevity of results. They represent the two most commonly used fillers on the market. Based on their subtle differences, some surgeons may prefer to use one product over the other and vary this based on the location of injection.
