The Juvederm Family of fillers
Juvederm is a collection of fillers used to treat volume loss and enhance facial features across the face. While many people refer to their filler as “Juvederm”, the term Juvederm refers to a family of different fillers (under the Juvederm Umbrella) that were all developed with a precise formulation to treat different aspects of the face. The fillers under the Juvederm Umbrella are as follows:
Think of the collection of Juvederm products as different paintbrushes designed to give the artist (a.k.a Board Certified Dermatologists at Village Dermatology) the precise effect needed for maximum results. Each product was specifically designed to do something unique in each area of the face and that is why we love these products and the results they give our patients.
Allergan is the company that makes Juvederm products and is the same company that makes Botox, Kybella, and Coolsculpting. Since coming into the US market back in 2006, the Juvederm family has established itself as the #1 dermal filler brand in the US. All the products are made with hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a naturally occurring substance in your body. Furthermore, the safety profile on HA fillers, like Juvederm, makes it an ideal choice for use in a wide range of patients. Many patients (and medical providers) like the fact that HA dermal fillers can be dissolved if needed or if the patient desires to return to baseline.
