Juvederm (an alternative to Collagen injections) is a simple non-surgical treatment that uses hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar found in the body, to smooth and give volume to the skin. There are a few different types of Juvederm Dermal Fillers:
- Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus XC
- Juvederm Voluma – for the treatment of facial volume loss
- Juvederm Soft Lift – a combination of Juvéderm and BOTOX Cosmetic for the treatment of wrinkles and thinning facial features
- Juvederm Volbella – a filler that has been designed specifically for lips and other areas of the face with long lasting results

How Do Juvederm Kelowna Dermal Fillers Work?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring sugar used to help maintain volume and moisture in the skin. HA acts like a sponge for the skin, absorbing small amounts of water that keep the skin healthy and full. As people age, their bodies are no longer able to produce the same levels of HA needed to maintain the appearance of youthful skin. Juvéderm Dermal Fillers replace the lost HA in the body so as to diminish the signs of aging in the skin. With increased HA, the skin begins to revitalize itself, in some cases even stimulating the growth of new collagen.
