While many people are concerned about the development of fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin and hollow areas across the face are actually among the most noticeable signs of aging. In fact, it is this same loss of facial volume that is the greatest contributor to deep facial creases and severe wrinkling. As people grow older, natural collagen production declines and the skin starts to lose its elasticity and suppleness. These are cosmetic issues that topical ointments and creams cannot reverse.
The good news is that Juvederm® can be used to instantly turn back the hands of time. This revolutionary dermal filler can restore a look of youth and health to the visage by replacing lost volume and filling wrinkled, sagging skin.
What Juvederm® Is and How It Works
Largely comprised of hyaluronic acid, Juvederm® is an injectable dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid is an acid that’s naturally present within the human body and offers structural support at the skin’s foundation. When this product is injected, it will immediately fill out sagging and hollow areas, erase fine lines and diminish the appearance of deep facial creases. Juvederm® is also approved for use around the lips to create a fuller, more attractive mouth.
A Fast and Non-Invasive Cosmetic Solution
Unlike costly facelift procedures, Juvederm® injections do not require our provider to make any incisions or remove any tissue. Given that the injectable is largely made up of a naturally-occurring acid, there is also very little risk of allergic reactions or serious side effects.
During Your Appointment
You will meet with our provider ahead of your Juvederm® injections to discuss your concerns. Our provider will map out the treatment area based upon your cosmetic goals, your treatment history and the look and condition of your facial skin.
The injections only take about 20 minutes or less. There is absolutely no downtime with Juvederm®. This is why many people are having their injections performed right on their lunch breaks. After all of the injections are complete, a person can immediately resume any scheduled activities.
Juvederm® injections can instantly enhance facial fullness; however, you can expect to see a series of progressive improvements in skin suppleness and overall facial aesthetics for up to one week after your appointment. As the hyaluronic acid binds with the water in your nearby skin cells, your skin will take on a firm, healthy and increasingly youthful appearance.
Given its natural composition, hyaluronic is ultimately recognized and absorbed by the body. As a result, the results are not permanent. However, the improvements that you gain from the injections will last anywhere from six months to one year. Fortunately, you can use the treatment twice yearly to maintain your new look.
