If you are getting older, you may be noticing the obvious signs of aging on your skin, like fine lines and wrinkles and overly dry skin. Most people would like to correct these problems, but lack sufficient information to make an informed decision or simply assume that surgery is the only way to address these types of issues. The good news is that treatment methods are available that can correct problems like wrinkles and a loss of facial volume without the need for surgery. Dermal fillers are one such technology, and of the fillers available, Juvederm® is one of the best.
Treatment with dermal fillers is increasing in popularity as a safe and effective alternative to cosmetic surgery. Dermal fillers contain various ingredients to help restore lost facial volume.
Juvederm® is a superior dermal filler because of its ability to replace a substance called hyaluronic acid in your skin. This important skin component helps attract moisture to your skin but becomes degraded as you age.
Since hyaluronic acid is produced by your own body, its loss leads to a loss of moisture, structure and volume that is particularly noticeable in the facial area. Juvederm® helps reverse this process by supplying hyaluronic acid in the form of a gel that is injected into areas of the skin that have lost volume.
Safety and Effectiveness
Juvederm® is manufactured using patented HYLACROSS technology, which gives the gel a very smooth texture. Since Juvederm® also contains lidocaine, your comfort is enhanced during your treatment. One reason why Juvederm® is considered to be such a safe treatment is the hyaluronic acid it contains is very similar to your own body’s hyaluronic acid, making an allergic response highly unlikely.
This treatment is very effective at restoring lost facial volume, which leads to a smoother skin surface. Smoother skin also means that facial lines and wrinkles will be reduced in appearance. You should also notice increased hydration in your skin, even without using a moisturizer. This is because your skin will become moisturized from within.
Although the results of a Juvederm® treatment are impressive, they are temporary. Since the product will be gradually absorbed and broken down by your body, you will need touch-up treatments in order to maintain your results.
