Can Juvederm Hydrate be used for chronically dehydrated skin?

My skin gets very dehydrated no matter what. I chalk it up to my genetics. Is Juvederm Hydrate something that would lessen/eliminate my skin dehydration problem?

Thanks for your question. I always recommend for skin care concerns that you make an appointment with a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon because we know more about these kinds of issues than anyone else. If your skin of the face is chronically dry and dehydrated, an appointment with a dermatologist may be warranted to make sure there is nothing else medically going on that may be causing this. If the skin is dehydrated, an appropriate skin care routine may do the trick: a derm-supervised skin care regimen with appropriate ingredients to combat the skin dehydration.

It is interesting that you mention Juvederm Hydrate, which is a great skin-moisturizing filler along with Restylane Vital . Both are sugar-containing fillers which can hydrate the skin, but neither is available in the US at this time, and each carries a cost that needs to be part of the overall equation as well. So check with the right provider and get the problem handled in the best way possible.

Fillers Like Juvederm For Skin Dehydration -- HYDRATE SKIN WITH FILLERS (BELOTERO or SILK)

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Fillers that hold water can be used to plump the skin can give it more hydration.  In the US the best filler options for this are belotero or restylane silk but juvederm ultra can be "thinned" or "mixed" to get a similar affect. I suggest you see an expert who knows how to prevent Tyndall effect and long term swelling.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Juvederm Hydrate

Thank you for your question and sorry to hear that you are having some concerns about chronically dehydrated skin.  Juvederm Hydrate is not FDA-approved and is not available for use in the US.  Juvederm is a dermal filler that is very effective at smoothing lines and correcting age-related volume loss.  There are many good options available for maintenance of skin hydration, including medical-grade moisturizers and serums.  I would advise you to obtain an in-person consultation with your doctor to best address your concerns.  Best wishes!

Thank you for your question.  Juvederm Hydrate is not approved for use in the USA.  This is a UK filler and thus should not be used in the USA.  If you are going to the UK to have this injected, yes it is for improving skin hydration and elasticity.  Regards, Dr. Matt Elias

Juvederm and hydration

Juvederm is a great injection to plump up wrinkles and give volume. It will not hydrate the skin.  If you are looking for hydration you need to look into serums and moisturizers and oxygen facials.  Best, Dr. Green
