At Trilogy Health, we trust the JUVÉDERM collection of five different dermal fillers made by Allergan, makers of Botox.
How do JUVÉDERM fillers work?
These gel fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our body that makes young skin look smooth since it has the unique ability to hold up to 1000x its weight in water. Hyaluronic acid also plays a key role in the production of the body’s own collagen. As we get older, our skin loses some of its own naturally created moisture or collagen and wrinkles and folds appear.
Injecting one of the JUVÉDERM fillers into these undesired wrinkles and folds fills these areas up with hyaluronic acid and replenishes moisture and collagen to diminish these lines. These injections also contain a small amount of lidocaine that acts as an anesthesia to increase comfort during treatment. One treatment may even provide more than 12 months of more youthful-looking skin.
