Juvederm® is an FDA-approved injectable that is used to treat a variety of age-related blemishes including nasolabial folds, smile lines, and sunken areas of the face. Not only are the results almost instantaneous, but many of our patients also enjoy smooth and firm skin for up to a year following their treatments. We encourage you to consider just a few of the benefits of Juvederm® and how this unique product works.
Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen, and Elastin
Many people don’t realize that skin is actually a complex organ that utilizes many different substances to protect itself. Hyaluronic acid is a carbohydrate that can be found in soft tissue throughout your body. This carbohydrate acts as a web that traps key proteins such as collagen and elastin near the surface of your skin. When we are younger and our bodies have an abundance of these substances, our skin tends to look much firmer and healthier.
As the years go by and your skin becomes damaged, you will most likely develop at least some age-related blemishes near your mouth, nose, cheeks, and forehead. Fine lines and wrinkles are typically caused by dry skin and the loss of subcutaneous fat. Some over-the-counter products can be used to delay age-related blemishes, but reversing the signs of aging is nearly impossible without professional services.
Juvederm® and Hyaluronic Acid
The primary ingredient in Juvederm® injections is a special form of hyaluronic acid. This material mimics the natural hyaluronic acid in your skin and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. It is suspended in an aqueous gel that immediately adds volume to your face, and most patients look younger within just hours of their treatments. As time goes on and your body begins to produce more beneficial substances, the results will continue to improve.
The Benefits of Juvederm®
Many people prefer Juvederm® over invasive cosmetic procedures because injectables have fewer side effects. Options such as lifts and tucks are effective, but patients often have to take weeks off of work after their procedures. Juvederm® has almost no unwanted side effects, and patients can head back to work the very same day if they’d like.
