You may feel young and vibrant, but does your face tell another story? Lines, wrinkles, and folds can make you look tired, which can affect how people perceive you. These signs of aging can also make you unhappy with the way you look, which affects your self-image.
What Is Juvederm®?
Wrinkles and folds are part of the natural aging process, a result of your body making less hyaluronic acid, a key part of your skin that maintains the volume and elasticity of your youth. Juvederm® replenishes your hyaluronic acid to make your skin smooth and more hydrated.
Is Juvederm® a Good Choice for Me?
Juvederm® is an effective treatment for deep wrinkles and folds on your forehead, between your eyebrows, and around your mouth. People between the ages of 30 and 65 who are in good overall health benefit the most from Juvederm® treatments and the product is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Dr. Shumway may recommend another course of treatment if you have certain medical conditions. Juvederm® can also be used for lip augmentation in certain patients.
