This is a non animal source, long lasting gel that is used to boost and lift areas to be treated. Juvederm is similar in composition to the hyaluronic acid that is naturally found in the body. It is safe to use, and ideally suited to boost and replenish the body’s natural supply of hyaluronic acid.

Juvederm can be used to fill out the lips or plump up the skin. It is created by a biosynthesis procedure, and is biocompatible. Because it is not sourced from animal products, there is no need for testing.
