Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid used to fill lines and wrinkles via injections to the epidermis. It is most commonly used to enhance lips and smooth imperfections around the mouth area. Hyaluronic acid has become increasingly popular over the years and has been proven to be both safe and effective. Juvederm is not of an animal origin, and there is no need to pre-test. Juvederm fillers are not a permanent solution and regular upkeep is important to maintain the effect. The results of hyaluronic acid injections are difficult to predict for each patient as each individual has a different skin type and therefore different reactions. Generally, the desired result can last up to 6 months.
Due to its rapid increase in use, Juvederm is one of the most cost-effective hyaluronic acids to use for non-surgical cosmetic procedures. General prices for Juvederm in a London clinic starts at around £175-£200 for 0.5ml-1ml and can go up to £300. Some clinics have offers, such as ‘one lip for £200, both lips for £250’. It is worth shopping around, but remember that cheaper doesn’t always mean worse, just as more expensive practices don’t always guarantee better results.
When looking for a clinic in London, you will find that the majority are in West London, specifically on Harley Street and the surrounding areas. Reputable clinics include The London Dermatology Centre, The Face Clinic London, Cosmedocs, Cosmedics and Profile Cosmetic Surgery. For many of these clinics you can call up or email to arrange a free consultation or request a free brochure, and then take it from there. It is always wise to consult your GP before arranging any procedures, even if they are non-surgical.
