As part of the natural aging process, the skin begins to appear thinner due to a lack of collagen. This may be most evident on the face. Bothersome lines may form around the lips, which also can lose some of their fullness. Crow’s feet around the eyes also may become more prominent. Volume in the upper cheekbones may reduce, which can cause them to appear sunken into the face.
If you are experiencing one or all of these issues, there is no need to worry. It is possible to turn back the hands of time and gain a more youthful appearance with Juvéderm. This natural dermal filler is injected into the soft tissue beneath the skin to create a fuller look while eliminating wrinkles and lines. It also can make recessed scars less visible and reduce the appearance of shadows beneath the lower eyelids. At ZO Skin Centre in Dallas, TX, Juvéderm is one of several dermal fillers offered to address the many changes that accompany aging.
What is Juvéderm?
The skin is your body’s largest organ and can be very telling about your health. The skin is also one of the first places that shows the signs of aging. With all that people put their skin through, it is understandable that men and women in Dallas are highly conscious about their appearance. In order to combat those telling signs of aging, people are turning to injectable fillers to restore their once youthful look. FDA-approved Juvéderm is an injectable filler that adds volume and plumps the skin in areas where it is needed. It is composed of hyaluronic acid, a gel-like substance that is naturally present in the body and is tasked with keeping joints well lubricated, and the skin smooth and supple.
As we age, the body produces less hyaluronic acid. This impacts the skin’s ability to retain moisture. When coupled with a decrease in the production of elastin and collagen, the skin begins to feel drier. As a result, the face can begin to sag toward the jaw. Fullness slowly retreats from the cheeks, and deep wrinkles form on the forehead, as well as around the mouth and the eyes.
With injections of dermal fillers like Juvéderm, these effects can be quickly reversed. It’s no wonder why in 2016 more than 2 million dermal filler procedures were performed in the United States, making it one of the most popular noninvasive cosmetic procedures. Lines and wrinkles are dramatically smoother as volume returns to create a revitalized look that can remove years from your appearance. The experts at ZO Skin Centre share six reasons why Juvéderm continues to lead the pack among injectable fillers.
1. Juvéderm is versatile
Several areas of the face can be improved or enhanced with Juvéderm injections:
Besides building volume beneath the cheeks, it can be used along the jawline as well as on the chin to make these areas rounder and more youthful looking.
It can reduce the appearance of marionette lines (also known as laugh lines), the deep grooves that develop between the mouth and the chin.
Juvéderm is effective for correcting “tear trough” issues by smoothing and filling in circles that form beneath the eyes as we age.
Thinning lips that result from a loss of collagen can be plumped up, and mild scars such including those caused by acne may be bulked up so they are less apparent.
When used as part of a nonsurgical or “liquid” rhinoplasty procedure, small bumps on the nose also can be corrected.
2. No downtime or recovery is required
Because Juvéderm injections are nonsurgical, most patients do not need to take time off from work and other activities in order to recover from their procedure. In fact, some patients visit ZO Skin Centre in Dallas, TX during their lunch hour and receive their injections before heading back to work. Although it is possible to experience some minor bruising, redness, and swelling at the injection sites, these effects usually fade within hours or days of treatment. To optimize the results of Juvéderm, patients are advised to avoid strenuous activity, as well as direct exposure to sunlight and heat for a short time after the procedure.
3. Natural components equal natural results
Juvéderm features hyaluronic acid, which sometimes is referred to as “nature’s moisturizer.” It is found naturally in the muscles, skin, and tendons throughout the body. It has been used for decades as part of facial augmentation procedures. By injecting Juvéderm into targeted areas, it naturally adds fullness and boosts volume. Its effects usually are visible for many months before the gel is safely absorbed by the body.
4. Juvéderm results are long lasting
Most Dallas patients can expect to notice the results of their Juvéderm injections soon after their procedure is completed. It is important to be sure that injections are performed by a highly trained and experienced doctor, nurse, or aesthetician, such as those at ZO Skin Centre. He or she will know precisely how much filler should be placed and in what locations in order to achieve excellent, long-lasting outcomes. Depending on which areas of the face are treated, the restorative results of your Juvéderm injections may be visible for up to a year.
5. It plays well with others
To further enhance and extend the results of your procedure, it is possible to combine Juvéderm injections with those of other injectable fillers. For example, it is popular to pair Juvéderm with BOTOX. The latter works to improve or eliminate the appearance of dynamic wrinkles that form after years of performing repetitive facial movements such as squinting and frowning. As part of a procedure called a “liquid facelift,” Juvéderm and BOTOX injections work together to create results that are truly remarkable.
6. Treatments are customizable
One of the reasons why Juvéderm injections are so popular among women and men in Dallas is because treatment plans can be custom crafted. Several types of Juvéderm solutions are available, which can be combined to treat one or more areas of the face simultaneously.
Who doesn’t want healthy, glowing, younger looking skin? Juvéderm injectable fillers are one of the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, and with good reason. The injections work quickly to effectively revitalize the face by adding needed volume and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
