Confidence is key – an aspect which both personal and professional life is moulded by. Appearance can also affect confidence massively, and to feel you are putting your best forward, looking and feeling your best, dermal fillers could be the solution.
As time passes and looking less youthful plays on our minds, dermal fillers can be used for lines and wrinkles caused by the loss of fat that occurs during the ageing process – a result of genetic or lifestyle factors. The ageing process also effects the amount of HA or Hyaluronic acid found naturally in the skin, resulting in loss of skin moisture as well as laxity. Because of this, dermal fillers containing HA can be used to erase the effects that time has on the skin.
More so, fillers in the form of a liquid or gel are injected into the skin to restore natural – looking plumpness that growing age decreases, as well as to sculpt lips and the cupids bow. As well as this, the most common areas to be treated include the nasolabial folds (between the mouth and nose) and the lines extending from the lips. This is done by injecting the filler into the dermas or cutaneous of the skin.
Juvederm or Intraline?
So, the plunge has been taken and it’s been decided that the non- invasive treatment of dermal fillers is the best route to take for lines, wrinkles, or sculpting. However, which one to choose? With so many fillers on the market, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed with choice.

What are the benefits?
In regards to Juvederm, this filler replenishes the plumpness and volume in the cheek area that may flatten due to ageing and is also non – invasive – a gel is injected beneath the skin making it a non – surgical process. More so, with this dermal filler, longevity is a plus with clinical tests showing results lasting between 6 months and 1 year with the client requiring less product on the next course of treatment. More so, another reason some prefer this particular filler is because of the amount of hyaluronic acid it possesses which works by holding in water at the injection site and acting as a cushioning agent. Because of this, a smooth finish and temporary volume is added to the skin. Juvederm has been used by professionals since 1996 making it tried, tested, safe and used worldwide.
Intraline is derived using a proprietary bacterial fermentation process and follows years of Swedish research to utilize an innovative specification of molecules. This means that this filler has a beautiful, smooth result. As well as this, the filler is never animal – based or derived in comparison to Botox.
These particular fillers should not be used in patients who have severe allergies marked by a history of anaphylaxis or a history or a presence of multiple severe allergies. Juvederm should not be used in patients with a history of allergies to Gram-positive bacterial proteins.
