Eventually, the aging process catches up with all of us. Even if you take extra care to maintain healthy, beautiful skin, you’ll eventually see laugh lines, crow’s feet, and other common signs of aging set in. That’s because our skin changes over time and slows down in repairing cell damage and producing collagen. Collagen is the protein responsible for the skin’s elasticity and smoothness. So, as it diminishes, the skin becomes laxer and more prone to folds and sagging. In addition, subdermal facial tissues lose volume, causing a sunken in appearance that further contributes to wrinkles and sagging.
While you can’t turn back the clock on these changes in the skin, you can restore your youthful appearance with dermal fillers from Juvederm. There are several types of Juvederm facial fillers available. Each is designed to address a specific aging skin concern.
What Juvederm Treats
- Wrinkles – Fine lines and wrinkles easily give away your age. Often, you’ll see wrinkles in areas around the nose and mouth known as laugh lines, parentheses lines, or nasolabial folds. You might also see marionette lines in the lower face or bunny lines along the edges of the nose. These wrinkles develop along the natural creases of the face, and they only tend to get worse as you age. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC and JUVÉDERM® XC are both suited to treating these moderate to severe wrinkles in the lower face.
- Cheeks – Loss of volume in the cheek bones is another common effect of aging. Fortunately, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed specifically to address lost volume in the mid-face. This formula is injected deep into the cheek area to plump the subdermal tissue and restore a more youthful appearance.
- Lips – Some women are born with a plump, full pout. However, most women will need a little help achieving one. That’s especially true as we get older, since the lips tend to lose more of their volume and definition over time. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is an injectable gel that can plump the lips and restore volume for the full, luscious pout you crave.
How Juvederm Works
Each Juvederm formula is made primarily from hyaluronic acid (HA). This is a substance that naturally occurs in the body, so it is safe as a dermal filler. Each formula is distinguished by the size of HA molecules in it and the consistency of the injection itself. This will determine how much the solution spreads once it is injected under the skin. Different types of Juvederm are also injected at differing depths, depending on the targeted skin concern. Restoring facial volume in the cheekbones, for example, requires a deeper injection than filling in nasolabial wrinkles.
Juvederm treatment is temporary with effects lasting about 6-12 months on average. However, patients can schedule ongoing Juvederm treatments to maintain their amazing results. In addition, Juvederm has virtually no downtime, so it’s perfect to schedule as a lunchtime treatment.
