Juvederm have long been commercially available and tens of millions of procedures have been carried out with them without any significant complications. A impressive advantage of hyaluronic acid-based fillers as opposed to other temporary fillers is the fact that hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the skin. This makes the risks of an allergic reaction or bodily rejection negligible. Juverderm can also be actively dissolved with Hyason, a solvent. In this way, small irregularities, any asymmetry or a surplus of volume can be easily remedied.
