- Juvederm (often misspelled Juvaderm) was approved in 2006 by the US FDA for the treatment of mild to moderate facial creases. Juvederm injections are commonly used to smooth out face wrinkles, plump lips, and treat acne scars. It can also reduce lines on the forehead and brow, plump eyebrows, fill in under-eye hollows, enhance cheek volume and jawline, soften scars, and reduce wrinkles on hands.
- Juvederm is offered in different formulations, including Ultra and Ultra Plus. Juvederm Ultra is Allergan's version of a highly linked hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that competes with Restylane; it is most frequently used to fill superficial lines and can last 8-12 months.
- Juvederm side effects most commonly discussed on RealSelf include swelling, bruising, lumps, and bumps appearing after injection.
