The aging process can wreak havoc on your skin, particularly on the face, since this is the most visible part of the body. Your face will change because of the aging process, but environmental factors and genetics are also part of the equation. As you grow older, you will probably notice changes in your skin’s appearance, normally experienced as deepening lines and wrinkles. Another aspect of aging skin is the appearance of volume loss, particularly in the midface area.
Your Skin and the Aging Process
One reason why skin develops fine lines and wrinkles, folds and discoloration is the loss of substances like collagen and hyaluronic acid. These substances are building blocks of skin, and their gradual loss leads to skin that loses its former volume, radiance and smoothness.
Recent innovations in cosmetic medicine now allow us to selectively make up for the loss of hyaluronic acid, delivering it where it is needed the most. The result is skin with fewer wrinkles and skin that regains most of the volume lost to the aging process.
Juvederm® Treatment for Lost Facial Volume
Juvederm® is a type of dermal filler. The treatment involves injections of a gel containing hyaluronic acid into areas of the skin that have lost volume, particularly the midface area. Once injected, Juvederm® goes to work immediately, plumping the skin and smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles. One of the great things about this treatment is that there is no downtime. This means that patients can resume their everyday activities immediately after their session.
Are the Results Permanent?
Juvederm® is a long-lasting treatment, but the results are not permanent. After about nine months or so, follow-up treatments will be required in order to maintain results because the product is gradually broken down and absorbed by the body over time.
Who is a Good Candidate for Juvederm®?
Good candidates for this injectable are in good overall health with realistic expectations. They also have the type of wrinkles that Juvederm® is meant to treat.
