How Juvéderm Dermal Fillers Work
Since 2006, Juvéderm has held the distinction of being approved by the FDA. In the years since, countless Boston, MA area individuals have turned to the dermal filler for fuller lips, smoother skin, softer facial lines, and more voluminous cheeks. Juvéderm is made from a substance called hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally within human skin. As one gets older, the skin’s levels of hyaluronic acid can significantly diminish, which results in wrinkling and loss of volume -two of the main reasons patients visit our Boston, MA area practice for Juvéderm.
The “XC” after the name of the Juvéderm formulas indicates that the injection contains an anesthetic right in the formula. This ensures a comfortable injection for our Boston, MA area patients – and is just another reason Juvéderm is one of the world’s most popular dermal fillers.
More than 2.5 million procedures using hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers – including Juvéderm – are performed worldwide annually. Each Juvéderm product has been uniquely designed to have its own specific density, texture, and injection depth. Depending on their own personal areas of concern, different Boston, MA area patients will benefit from different Juvéderm dermal filler formulas.
