Everything You Need To Know About Juvederm

Calgary Juvederm Specialists

In today’s busy world, our patients want to look their very best yet may not have the time to recover from invasive surgical procedures. That is why Perfexion offers dermal filler treatments - a popular, minimally invasive alternative for facial rejuvenation and sculpting.

A family of injectable dermal fillers, Juvederm is the top recommended facial filler in Canada and worldwide. It is often used to refresh your look by smoothing away any unwanted lines and bringing back the natural contours of your face.

What is Juvederm?

The Juvederm collection of dermal fillers is composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in the body and combines with the water in your skin to naturally restore lost volume and eliminate unwanted facial lines, making you appear instantly younger.

Juvederm is ideally used for:

  • Restoring fullness in areas such as your cheeks and beneath your eyes
  • Improving the appearance of acne scars
  • Nasolabial folds (more commonly known as ‘smile lines’ or ‘laugh lines’)
  • Marionette lines
  • Adding volume to lips
