No matter how well you care for your skin, at some point, your face is going to start to show signs of aging. Wrinkles, lines, and sagging are all natural effects of aging. However, just because they’re natural, that doesn’t mean we have to like them or live with them. In addition, all these issues can make us look tired and worn out. Also, they can also make us look and feel a lot older than we want. The good news is, there’s a solution — and it doesn’t involve surgery.
Restoring Your Youthful Appearance with Fillers
There was a time not too long ago when reversing and reducing the signs of aging meant having a facelift, and that meant dealing with a lot of surgical risks, discomfort and recovery time, as well as high costs. But thanks to major advances in science and a much deeper understanding of the aging process, today a lot of those age-related issues can be “fixed” using cosmetic fillers like Juvederm©. Fillers work in a few important ways:
- They “plump up” your skin to fill in wrinkles and lines, creating a smoother appearance.
- Fillers add volume to areas like your cheeks, gently lifting the skin to reduce sagging and prevent the “hollowed-out” appearance that often occurs as we get older.
- They stimulate the skin’s natural collagen response, helping skin produce more collagen so it looks and feels firmer and more resilient.
How Juvederm Treatment Works
Juvederm uses a gel solution composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that’s found in your body. Hyaluronic acid plumps up your skin while also helping it retain plenty of moisture, so it stays resilient and youthful-looking.
While some fillers have one formulation, Juvederm has several formulas for use in specific areas of your face, including the area around your nose and mouth, your cheeks, and even your lips. Different formulations mean your treatment can be tailored for a very precise and predictable result, so you can feel confident you’ll get the results you’re looking for.
Juvederm treatment takes about a half hour to an hour, depending on the aras you’re having treated. There’s no downtime afterward, so you can go back to your regular activities. You’ll probably have some mild swelling or light bruising in the injection area, but they’ll resolve within a day or two.
