For some of us, aging means the loss of many aspects of an attractive face. Full lips and cheeks can decline, becoming thin and gaining hollows. In their place, you can develop some deep facial folds. Fortunately, Juvéderm lets you erase some of these signs of facial aging to restore a youthful appearance. Even better, it can give you features you never enjoyed before, such as full lips and high cheekbones.

Juvéderm is a versatile treatment that can be used to rejuvenate and alter your facial appearance. It is commonly used on:

  • Parentheses lines (nasolabial folds)
  • Marionette lines
  • Hollow cheeks
  • Tear trough (dark, sunken area under eyes)
  • Thin lips

The combination of rejuvenation and facial sculpting makes Juvéderm a very powerful and popular treatment.

Smile Lines

Smile lines around the mouth have many names (and there are many different lines that get called “smile lines”). What we’re referring to are the the lines that make parentheses around the mouth, which is why they’re called “parentheses lines.” They run from the corners of the nose and curve around the lips, which is why they’re called “nasolabial folds.” They are caused by the curve of the smile pushing up against the descending fat pads from the cheek. Juvéderm can fill these lines in, reducing them significantly.

Marionette Lines

These lines start at the corners of your mouth and run down to the chin. They can make you look like a marionette, which is where the name comes from. Juvéderm fills these lines in to reduce or eliminate their appearance.

Hollow Cheeks

As we get older, our body can remove fat from our cheeks, causing them to grow hollow. In addition, the cheeks can descend, increasing the hollowness. Juvéderm has a stronger formula called Voluma that can fill and lift the cheeks.

Voluma can even be used to transform the appearance of the cheekbones. It’s sturdy and can build up the appearance of high cheekbones.

Tear Through

As the cheek pad sinks, the area under the eye grows hollow, shaded. This creates a dark, curved area known as the tear trough. Juvéderm can fill in this area, which usually only looks dark because it’s in shadow.

Thin Lips

Full lips are a sign of feminine youth and beauty. Though not everyone is born with them, everyone experiences some degree of thinning lips with age. Juvéderm can be used to plump lips. It’s a smooth filler that gives natural-looking results, even under the thin skin of the lips.

What Is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is a facial filler that is made of a moisturizing molecule that’s commonly found in your skin, eyes, and joints, hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a great material for a filler not only because it’s natural, but because it is good at maintaining volume. HA naturally draws water to it–as we said, it’s a moisturizer. As the body breaks down the HA, the water helps the filler maintain its volume. That’s why Juvéderm can achieve such long-lasting results, at least six months and sometimes as much as two years.
