How Do JUVÉDERM® Fillers Work?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) molecules is a natural element of the human body, bringing nutrients, maintaining hydration, and keeping your skin glowing and healthy. JUVÉDERM® fillers build on this principle. Linking different sizes of HA molecules in a variety of ways, Allergan, JUVÉDERM’S® manufacturer, produces a line of gel fillers to address a host of aging problems we all face as we get older.
Cross-linking is an art form. Fewer cross-links makes for more stretch in the gel’s consistency, resulting in a thinner, more spreadable gel ideal for treating tiny flaws in delicate areas of the face and adding volume to subtly boost lips. More cross-links closer together creates a more robust, thicker gel that holds its shape and can be molded to fill deep lines like nasolabial folds, or add volume to cheeks to restore that apple roundness specific to youth. Cross-links in the middle correct moderate lines and wrinkles, or add more dramatic volume to lips for a plump pout. JUVÉDERM® is a comprehensive line of dermal fillers designed to address a multitude of aging signs.
