Allergan Health Care developed and produces the dermatology products Juvéderm fillers and Surgiderm fillers. Juvederm is an injectable dermal filler for the face tissues, to iron out wrinkles and plump up the skin. Popularly used by patients who want to hide deep nasolabial folds. Surgiderm, also developed and produced by Allergan Health Care, is a range of injectable hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers that is used to smooths wrinkles, add volume to lips and reshapes the contours of the face.
Dermal fillers work by restoring lost volume to certain areas. Injectable dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases, or enhance facial contours. Juvederm and Surgiderm fillers are based on hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance in the skin that diminishes with aging.
Hyaluronic acid stores moisture and gives the skin a plump and hydrated appearance, adding volume and reducing wrinkles and fine lines.
