JUVEDERMTM Injectable Gel - Hyaluronic Acid

HYALURONIC ACID a nontoxic polymer naturally found in human skin. It has the special property of being hydrophilic: it bonds with water molecules in the body -- and by doing so, over time, it is able to maintain fullness and bulk. The hyaluronic acid in JUVEDERM™ Injectable Gel is non-animal-based, which eliminates the risk of animal-based disease transmission and minimizes the possibility of allergic reaction. JUVEDERM, currently our most popular dermal filler, has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid available among dermal fillers, and is fabricated by an advanced process that creates a uniquely smooth gel. It's supplied in a range of formulations appropriate for a variety of conditions, including deeper wrinkles or folds.
