WHAT IS JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is a top selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the US. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume.

Different formulations are approved to either lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, smooth vertical lip lines or plump the lips. The results are subtle and long lasting.
