There are countless reasons why Juvederm® is currently one of the most popular anti-aging treatments on the market. This FDA-approved solution is at the cutting-edge of dermal filler technologies, and it’s capable of providing a broad range of impressive aesthetic improvements. Best of all, the injections are non-surgical and are virtually guaranteed to give you a fresher and more youthful appearance.
Treating Facial Wrinkles with Juvederm®
Fine lines and wrinkles are among the earliest and most noticeable signs of aging. These developments have two primary causes. When wrinkles appear around the mouth, across the brow and around the eyes, they are usually referred to as dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that are the result of facial expressions and movement. Dynamic wrinkles can be released if treated with purified protein solutions like BOTOX®.
The second type of facial wrinkles, however, are largely unresponsive to BOTOX® treatments. These are called static wrinkles and they’re caused by losses in facial volume that often occur over time. These creases tend to be deeper and more noticeable, and they remain visible even when none of the expressive muscles are engaged. Juvederm® has the ability to instantly fill these lines in. This dermal filler replaces lost volume in creases to create a smooth, youthful and virtually line-free visage.
Why and How Juvederm® Works
Juvederm® is primarily comprised of hyaluronic acid. This is an acid that’s naturally occurring in your own skin. It exists at the foundation layer of your dermis, where it is intended to provide structural support. As such, the body can easily recognize and metabolize Juvederm®, which makes it unlikely to cause irritation or unpleasant reactions. Once this filler has been skillfully injected into areas with volume loss, it will instantly bind to nearby skin cells and begin attracting water molecules. As water molecules are accumulated, the filler will have a noticeable plumping effect at the surface of the skin.
Given that the body metabolizes Juvederm®, its effects are only temporary. Your results will gradually begin to fade. The good news is these treatments can be safely repeated at our office for ongoing results.
