What Does Juvéderm Do?

Juvéderm in La Jolla is a popular dermal filler composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. It works by replenishing lost volume, smoothing wrinkles, and enhancing facial contours. Juvéderm adds hydration and plumpness when injected beneath the skin, restoring a youthful appearance by filling in areas with creases or hollows. Its versatile applications make it effective for softening lines, enhancing lips, and rejuvenating various facial features. Dr. Bolitho's expertise ensures precise placement and natural-looking results tailored to your specific aesthetic goals.
