Dermal fillers can be used to improve a variety of facial skin irregularities. Most of the formulas target creases and fine wrinkles, and the effectiveness of these products lies in the strength and malleability of the gel as well as the components suspended in the gel. Acid-based fillers such as Juvederm? come in several different densities, and we choose one of the varieties based on our observations of the client’s skin and the concerns he or she brings to us.
Juvederm? is rather unique because the gel has a smoother consistency than most other volumizing dermal fillers. It works great for filling in lines and wrinkles, but it also can act as a very efficient skin surface plumping agent. Your self-confidence will elevate significantly when you experience just what this family of dermal fillers can do to restore natural contours to all areas of your face.
What is the Juvederm? Secret?
Actually, there’s no real secret here, just good science. This type of dermal filler contains hyaluronic acid, a natural polysaccharide produced by our own bodies. As we mature, this acid is in rather short supply because our liver doesn’t signal the creation of it in large amounts. This acid is what helps to keep our skin and other tissues moist because it easily binds to water molecules and in turn makes it easy for the water molecules themselves to bond together.
When a rather high concentration of non-animal sourced hyaluronic acid is injected as part of a filler gel, it draws in and holds moisture in place. This is why Juvederm? is so effective at smoothing away fine wrinkles and marionette lines. The skin plumps just a bit, and the surface becomes more taut and supple.
On a larger scale, this product can actually improve the overall contours of the cheeks, lips, and other areas of the face. During a consultation, we’ll describe the various members of the Juvederm? line of products and recommend one of them for the treatment of your facial lines, dimples, and areas where added volume is required.
Simple Injection Treatment
We’ll inject the gel in areas where the added water volume will correct such problems as cheek sag and dimples. The effect is almost immediate. Within one day, you’ll notice improvement in the contours of the skin in these areas. The product can also be used to add volume and shape to thinning lips.
The acid particles work to attract moisture for about seven or eight months. After this time, a repeat treatment will be necessary. This is much simpler and affordable than surgical correction, however.
The acid in the gel is collected from natural sources, but no animal tissue is used to create it. This eliminates the risk of allergic reactions. In most cases, we won’t even recommend a skin reaction test because these products simply don’t produce allergic reactions.
