Juvederm® is currently the most popular dermal filler technology on the market. This brand has designed a number of FDA-approved solutions for restoring lost volume, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and strategically reshaping or enhancing the lips. The formulas are primarily comprised of a naturally-occurring acid called hyaluronic acid (HA). This acid is found deep within the structure of the skin, where it exists to provide volume and support. The injections are short and capable of providing remarkable results in almost no time at all.
Eliminate Static Wrinkles
The first step in any effective anti-aging plan is to identify the source of all signs and symptoms that are presenting. Facial wrinkles can be either dynamic or static in nature. Dynamic wrinkles appear when the face is in motion and are usually the result of muscle tension. Static wrinkles, however, are the result of volume loss that has occurred over the years. These creases are visible at all times, whether the face is moving or relaxed. With static wrinkles, dermal fillers can be used to correct volume loss and to fill out loose skin, hollows and severe facial wrinkling. Juvederm® is an acceptable and extremely low-risk alternative to invasive facelift surgeries.
Understanding How Juvederm® Works
Our experienced provider will skillfully inject the Juvederm® solution into the preselected areas. Juvederm® is designed to attract water molecules and bind to nearby skin cells. These activities are what create the noticeable plumping effect that quickly fills in deep creases at the surface of the dermis.
Plumping the Lips
Even the lips are not impervious to the signs of aging. As people grow older, noticeable, vertical lines can begin to appear at both the top and bottom of the lips. These are known as perioral lines or “smokers’ lines”. Fortunately, Juvederm® can be injected into these lines to create a fuller and far more youthful-looking pout overall. It may also be used in cases where the lips have always been thin.
A Short-Term Solution to Facial Wrinkling
Since Juvederm® is largely comprised of HA, the body invariably recognizes its basic ingredients and ultimately metabolizes them. As such, to prolong your results, repeat treatments will eventually be necessary.
