Juvéderm® from Allergan is a range of smooth consistency gels which are injected to restore volume, fine lines, wrinkles and folds and redefine lips (Lip Enhancement) The smooth consistency is due to it’s advanced formulation.
As we age the hyaluronic acid (HA) content of our skin-which is important for water retention-decreases. Oil-producing glands become less active and skin becomes drier.The skin also loses fat, so it looks less plump and smooth. The skin loses its youthful colour and glow.
Unlike other fillers, Juvéderm® is not granular which means that it is able to flow easily into the skin. This results in a smooth and natural appearance.
It comes in a range of different strengths depending on the individual case.
Mr Ferrando has been using Dermal Fillers for many years and believes that Juvéderm® products are superior to other products on the market. He will always use the best advanced aesthetic treatments for his patients.
Juvéderm® fillers can be completed in as little as 15 min and also contain lidocaine, a local anaesthetic which helps to make the treatment process more comfortable.
The duration of the effect depends on age, how much filler is injected, where it’s placed and the quality of the skin. With the Juvéderm® range, however, the beneficial effects can be expected to last up to one year after treatment.
Juvéderm® ULTRA 2 treats medium wrinkles, especially those around the corners of the eye and those very close to the surface of the skin.
