Juvederm in Charlotte, NC
Approved by the FDA in June 2006, Juvederm™ is a non-surgical, injectable gel used to restore the skin’s volume and correct wrinkles and nasolabial folds. From the creators of Botox® Cosmetic, Juvederm™ is considered a “next generation” injectable; it is a dermal facial filler made of a smooth consistency gel that is composed of cross-linked hyaluronic acid.
Juvederm is a family of injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used to provide 9 months to one year of correction for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth).
The JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made from hyaluronic acid (HA). What’s interesting about HA is that it’s a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made from a modified form of HA.

Juvederm™ maintains corrective results for an average of six months. Some patients experience a longer-lasting effect. Additional injections and touch-ups may be needed to achieve optimal correction. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance and will gradually absorb into the body.
