JUVÉDERM is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that keeps it hydrated. As we age, our skin begins to lose its concentration of hyaluronic acid, which contributes to formation of wrinkles and folds.
Dr. Peterson injects the gel into problems areas using a fine needle. JUVÉDERM has a smooth consistency, and flows easily into the skin during the injection process. This results in a smooth, natural look and feel not possible with other hyaluronic acid fillers that are made with a granular consistency.
If you are looking to add volume to your cheek area, we also offer JUVÉDERM VOLUMA services. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss.
