WHY JUVEDERM FILLERS?
Juvederm facial fillers are an effective way to create a dramatic improvement to your appearance without undergoing a surgical procedure. The skin naturally contains collagen and hyaluronic acid, which help the skin maintain its moisture and volume. With time, the body reduces its production of collagen and elastin, causing thinning, wrinkles, creases, and grooves to appear in the skin. Juvederm fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, and are used to plump the skin and lips to create a natural looking, more youthful appearance. Studies of long term use of hyaluronic acid fillers have also show to have anti-aging benefits by stimulating collagen.
