Most prominent of all aging signs is a hollow, shallow facial skin surface. Much of the volume is gone, and the result is an old, tired look. Creases and folds also become more visible. The areas around the mouth and eyes are full of fine, thin wrinkles and crow’s feet. If you’re a mature adult and don’t wish to look years older than you are, dermal fillers may be just the treatment you’ve been seeking. JUVÉDERM® is one of the most popular of these filler gels, and it’s available in several forms, each of which is formulated to treat a specific problem.
When we consult with our clients who bring us their concerns about lost facial volume, we almost always recommend an acid-based filler gel. JUVÉDERM® is easy to inject, the results are almost immediate, and the client enjoys a more youthful appearance that lasts for up to a year.
How Do Acid Fillers Work?
When injected directly into and beneath the skin layers, JUVÉDERM® gel settles in and immediately begins to attract and bind with water molecules. The additional water results in a slight plumping effect, and this effectively smoothes away wrinkles and fine lines. It also improves the overall contours of the facial skin and brings about a more youthful appearance.
Choosing The Right Filler Gel
The consultation is very important because we need to examine the facial features, note the strength, suppleness, and thickness of the skin in the affected areas, and determine the suitable injection sites. JUVÉDERM® comes in several forms, and these vary in terms of the amount of acid particles and gel malleability.
The injection procedure can be completed in just minutes. The gel stays in place for quite a long time, and after it goes neutral, it’s flushed from the body along with other waste. No harmful residue builds up. Within two or three days after treatment, the client notices visual plumping and rounding of skin contours. The treatment is effective at targeting problem areas near the corners of the mouth, along the sides of the nose where nasolabial folds form, on the nose bridge, and even near the eyes.
Advantages Of JUVÉDERM®
Some individuals may feel that their only option is skin ablation or repositioning, but this involves a surgical procedure. Abrasive resurfacing is another option, but this can scar the skin and cause variations in skin tone. Besides, resurfacing isn’t effective for adding volume. JUVÉDERM® is considered non-invasive. It doesn’t affect the skin tone, but it certainly improves the look of the skin texture. The acid in the filler gel is non-animal source, making it suitable for those with certain reactions to animal products.
Dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® can also be used for lip augmentation. This is simpler and more reliable than implants or fat transfers.
