Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm® are made from a substance called hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the skin.
This acts to draw in water to an area, thereby giving a fuller, more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers can be used to restore the volume lost from areas such as the cheeks, tear troughs, and temples, as well as for lip enhancement.
Juvéderm® is combined with a local anaesthetic to keep discomfort from the injections down to a minimum. Results can be expected to last between 6 months and a year.
