Unfortunately, our faces begin to develop creases known as wrinkles when we grow older because of a loss of facial volume. Although numerous factors like sun exposure, genetics, lifestyle choices and other factors can play a role, wrinkles tend to form when our skin grows thinner and drier. The good news is that a product called JUVEDERM® can help to restore lost facial volume and reverse the developments that lead to fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment offers you the ability to significantly reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles through the restoration of facial volume.
What is JUVEDERM®?
JUVEDERM® is a product line of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that are injected into the face for the promotion of increased skin thickness and hydration. It offers results lasting anywhere from months to a year for the correction of wrinkles. The products have been approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
What Makes JUVEDERM® Unique?
In contrast to other types of hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers, JUVEDERM® products contain a very smooth gel that flows easily under the surface of your skin. It also contains lidocaine for a more comfortable treatment experience. Lidocaine helps to numb the injection site. JUVEDERM® products are also manufactured with a special technology that results in a much smoother gel that is gentler on your skin.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
When you are young, your body produces hyaluronic acid in abundance. Its role is to attract moisture into soft tissues. Hyaluronic acid can attract and bind 1,000 times its own weight in water. This has a volumizing effect on every skin cell. Unfortunately, hyaluronic acid declines in both amount and strength as you grow older. This leads to skin that loses volume, which promotes the development of lines and wrinkles.
