What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an FDA-approved dermal filler that is used to erase wrinkle lines and add fullness to specific areas of the face. Depending on your needs, Dr. Romo will recommend the appropriate type and brand of dermal filler to address your age-related facial concerns or desired facial changes.
Juvederm is made with hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the body. This acid works with collagen and elastin to add volume and support to the skin in desired areas of treatment. The full family of Juvederm fillers offered by NYC’s Romo Plastic Surgery includes: Juvederm Ultra XC, Juvederm Voluma XC, Juvederm XC, and Juvederm Vollure XC.

Juvederm may be used to:
- Noticeably smooth wrinkles and signs of aging in the face

Juvederm Injections Procedure
If you are considering Juvederm, it’s important to understand that while it is not a surgical procedure, having dermal fillers done at a salon or other non-medical environment by someone who is not a board-certified professional is not advisable. You may be putting your health at risk. A top facial plastic surgeon will be able to provide the specialized technique and careful placement necessary in order to achieve the best and most natural-looking results.
