Juvéderm™ is a soft replenishing injectable made from hyaluronic acid which adds volume to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and thinning skin. Hyaluronic acid injections have also been shown to stimulate collagen production.
Best of all, the results are instantaneous and natural-looking, with minimal downtime and it has been demonstrated to be safe for all skin tones (approved by Health Canada).
