Juvederm is an injectable filler used to provide lift to the cheeks, smooth lines around the mouth, and add volume to the lips. It can also be used to fix acne scarring and diminish the appearance of age on the hands. It is a FDA approved filler made from a naturally occurring substance in the body called hyaluronic acid. Unlike certain fillers, your results are immediately noticeable. If you are looking for immediate results to enhance your look, Juvederm may be a great option for you.

Juvederm vs. other Facial Fillers
Juvederm is commonly compared to Restylane. Both are FDA approved and are made of hyaluronic acid. The main difference is the ability of Juvederm to settle more smoothly than Restylane. Juvederm is less likely to form a bump in the tissue but this also means it cannot be used to build up an area as well.
