Juvéderm® HYDRATE is not a traditional filler. It is used to improve elasticity, hydration and skin laxity and is used in a treatment technique known as mesotherapy, whereby the product is superficially injected in minute quantities into the upper layers of skin, improving hydration, resulting in a smooth, bright, natural appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, which means that it attracts and retains up to 1,000 times its own weight in water. When used in mesotherapy, it draws in moisture and retains it, reducing the dryness, fine lines and wrinkles associated with ageing and is also recommended as an early treatment for crow’s feet and fine lines around the mouth.
Juvéderm® HYDRATE is designed to improve skin hydration and elasticity by replacing HA lost through ageing. It is not a traditional filler; instead it acts as a hydrating agent, attracting moisture, retaining it within the skin to maintain a healthy glow. It is administered as tiny injections to the face, neck, hands and décolletage.
Juvéderm® HYDRATE is classed as a CE marked medical device having been given a European CE mark in December 2009.
