JUVÉDERM is made with synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that is also found naturally in the body and contributes to healthy, supple skin and collagen production. Each product in this product family is made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that occurs naturally in the skin, but that begins to decline as we age. It can hold up to a thousand times its weight in water, making it an important moisturizing agent for the skin.
Thus, when its production slows down, our skin can dry out and lose its elasticity. The HA molecules in Juvederm Voluma, Volbella and Vollure are modified using a patented technology called Vycross. There is little to no downtime and fewer office visits are required, as Juvederm products outlast their rivals.
