Juvederm Fills Age Lines Instantly
The mythical “Fountain of Youth” may have never been found, but the real Fountain of Youth lies in the wide variety of modern age-defying procedures now available on the market. These are all thanks to advances in modern medical and cosmetic science.
Everyone desires to retain their youthful vigor and good looks well into middle age and beyond. Signs of old age like wrinkles, baldness, and drooping skin appear over the course of our lives, and as they do, we do our best to reverse them.
One of the most important factors that contributes to a youthful appearance is smooth, wrinkle-free skin. Taut skin free of age lines will go a long way in making you look young and fresh. To help you retain or restore that youthful look, we offer Juvederm.
Juvederm is the trade name for a range of hyaluronic acid-based injectable gels used to treat wrinkles and folds in the skin. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body and plays a vital role in the repair and rejuvenation of the skin. It helps to address the daily damage we suffer due to dust, pollution, sun exposure, and all the rigors of modern life. Hyaluronic acid is key in the body’s natural healing mechanism.
The body becomes less and less efficient with age, and hyaluronic acid production is not exempt from this. Production of hyaluronic acid starts dropping after the age of 20, when our lives are often incredibly busy and stressful.
One must take measures to preserve the health of their skin as they age. But sometimes, the damage will be more than the body’s normal rate of hyaluronic-acid production can keep up with. Thankfully, we have an effective way to restore our body’s depleted hyaluronic acid: Juvederm injections.
Hyaluronic acid does not cause any allergic reactions, since it is naturally present in the body. The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm is sourced not from animals but from bacterial cultures, so you can use it guilt free.
How Does One Use Juvederm?
Juvederm is an injectable product, meaning it is injected via a syringe directly into the skin, into the deep layers, where it works its magic from within. Typical wrinkle-reducing products like topical creams and ointments cannot reach these deeper layers, so they can only achieve so much.
A session of Juvederm involves several injections with a syringe. The doctor may use up to three syringes for a longer session. Injections can reduce the appearance of the nasolabial folds, parentheses lines, marionette lines, and many other wrinkles. Juvederm can also be injected into the lips to enhance their volume and aesthetics.
There are no significant risks, but there can be discomfort due to the injections. This can be mitigated through application of numbing creams and local anesthesia.
