Many people are not aware of all the uses Juvederm Fillers have. They are made of hyaluronic acid, naturally found in the human body that stabilize and form into a gel like structure. With the combination of water, these gel substances create a plump, soft tone to the skin that radiates a look of youth.

During the aging process, a lot of collagen and elasticity is lost from our bodies. This process is most evident on our facial skin. Juvederm fillers are used to plump up the skin that gave way to gravity, stress, and age. In combination with Botox treatments, Juvederm can be applied to deep lines and grooves around the eyes. Juvederm can be applied to the corners of the mouth and sides of the chin to reduce marionette lines. Dr. Goulko and many dermatologists find that Juvederm is highly effective in the nasolabial folds, the lines formed when smiling or laughing. Aging, smoking, stress and not adequate sleep can cause vertical lip wrinkles. Any one that has smoked for about a year can tell you that not even the best quality of makeup can cover those harsh marks on one’s face. When Juvederm is applied by a skilled dermatologist, such as Dr. Goulko, the filler can plump up and reduce the deep wrinkles above and around the lip.

Juvederm fillers are used to enlarge the upper and lower lips in lip augmentation procedures. Many chose to do this for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. But there are a lot of patients that find that there is a slight unevenness between their lips causing a look of a swollen lip. Juvederm fillers can correct and smooth away imperfections.
