Juvederm Plastic Surgery Fillers

Juvederm was approved in June 2006 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Cosmetic, dermatological, and plastic surgeons use the product to soften deep folds and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The main component of the product is hyaluronic acid, a natural substance evident in mammals. Juvederm is primarily used  to remove nasolabial folds, which run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth. It can also be used to enhance the lips, fill in hollow places and scars on the face, and to lose the internal shape with regular ageing. These facial fillers are absorbed by the body within six to nine months, requiring the patient to repeat injections in order to maintain a youthful look.

The Hyaluronic acid evident in Juvederm adds new volume under the surface of the skin. The acid is binded with collagen and elastin, providing nutrients to the skin, and allowing older faces to become rejuvenated with youthful aspects. Dr. Backstein finds that a flushed complexion, pain and tenderness during injections, as well as swelling and bruising are temporary expected side effects of the procedure. Immune system complications that lead to the formation of facial lumps and bumps known as granulomas are more serious reactions that physicians find more difficult to treat.
