Juvederm in Philadelphia, PA

Dr. Lohner sees patients from Bryn Mawr, Main Line, Rosemont, Philadelphia, and other cities throughout Pennsylvania for Juvederm® treatments.

Juvederm®, Juvederm® Ultra, and Juvederm® Ultra Plus are trade names for FDA-approved products that consist primarily of hyaluronic acid, an injectable gel that can help fill out areas beneath wrinkles and lines and make skin appear smoother. Juvederm® is most commonly used to reduce smile lines, augment lips, and to fill in scars and other areas in a patient’s face.

The Hyaluronic acid treatment

Hyaluronic acid is an attractive alternative to other “fillers” because it is non-allergenic, and treatments can take as little as 15 minutes. It is a naturally occurring compound in human skin and other tissues. However, like most other fillers, this substance is gradually absorbed by the body and requires re-treatment every six to twelve months to maintain its effectiveness.
