Is juvederm a natural alternative for reducing wrinkles? I'd like to have some age lines and wrinkles filled in, but I don't want to pump my body full of chemicals. A co-worker told me that juvederm isn't really a drug, that it's some sort of sugar-water.

Juvederm: Juvederm is a drug that can only be administered by a physician or a trained nurse injector in your plastic surgeon's office. Juvederm injectable gel is composed of a hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occuring sugar that is found in the body, but the hyaluronic acid in juvederm is cross-linked so it is more difficult for your body to break down, and hence it lasts for several months to a year. The product is used to fill in wrinkles in specific areas on your face. By adding volume, you get a smoother appearance. With any injectable product, there are risks including infection, pain, bruising, firmness, and lumps/bumps.
