Juvederm Injection Toronto
Juvederm® has been approved for use in Canada since 2002, and is now one of the most well known dermal fillers due to its efficacy, safety and longstanding results*. Juvederm® injectable gel is made out of colourless hyaluronic acid (HA) which closely resembles the natural substance that exists in the human body, thus it's allergy free, suitable for all skin types and requires no pre-treatment skin test*.
Juvederm® injection is one of the fastest growing non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the world. Juvederm® is FDA approved to last up to 1 year. Some Juvederm® fillers contain a small amount of local anaesthetic, making the injection a uniquely gentle procedure, while other fillers can be more robust, ideal for deeper wrinkles and folds*. It also lasts a bit longer. During the procedure, Juvederm® is precisely injected into the treated areas with a very fine needle.Hyaluronic acid exists in the connective tissue of the skin, helping to hydrate and add volume to the skin. By restoring to certain level in the skin, the Hyaluronic acid can instantly soften wrinkles and lines (such as the nasolabial folds) and gently enhance lips, cheeks and jowls.

What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a "next generation" dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid — a naturally occurring substance in your skin. It combines with water in your skin to instantly restore lost volume, smooth out lines and wrinkles and enhance lips. Juvederm’s smooth gel provides results that are not only instant but long-lasting and natural-looking.
What areas can I treat with Juvederm®?
Juvederm® smoothes unwanted lines, restores natural contours and enhances lips to give you a smooth, natural and refreshed-looking appearance.
The most appropriate lines to treat with Juvederm® are those that are described as static—the lines you can see when your face is still. Juvederm® can also be used to enhance, or "plump up", your lips, for soft, subtle results that leave you looking your best*.
The unique formulation of Juvederm® provides results that last up to 1 year*, longer than other HA dermal fillers.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a complex sugar naturally found in many tissues of the body such as skin and cartilage. It binds to water to create more volume and elasticity in the skin to correct the appearance of wrinkles and facial folds.
"Uncross-linked" hyaluronic acid in its natural form is in a liquid state. "Cross-linking" is the process through which hyaluronic acid is made into a gel product that can be injected into the skin for long-lasting results.
