Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring hydrating substance found within the body that helps keep skin looking plump, smooth, and youthful. As people age, hyaluronic acid begins to decrease, which in turn causes the skin to lose its voluminous appearance and definition. Much like a grape that slowly turns to a raisin, skin that loses moisture loses firmness and fullness.
At the Skin & Vein Center, we are able to offer cosmetic Juvederm fillers, which are among the newest types of fillers on the market today. Fully FDA-approved, Juvederm fillers are used to help restore what the skin loses with age and skin damage.
Juvederm is used by experienced cosmetic surgeons and doctors to restore volume and fullness to the lines in the face, especially in areas where the loss of such is more evident, such as around the cheeks, chin, cheekbones, and eyes. These areas of the face tend to be the first to show signs of age, and as a hydrating, plumping substance, Juvederm can take years off the face.
Though there are many fillers available to patients looking to add volume and restore a more youthful appearance, there are some very specific benefits that Juvederm patients enjoy. Among these benefits include an FDA-approved, standard, virtually pain-free procedure thanks to the lidocaine painkiller that is present in Juvederm, the relative quickness of a Juvederm session (most sessions are completed within half an hour), the ability to quickly return to normal activity almost immediately, and the longevity of the results. In fact, most patients can enjoy their improved appearance for up to two years following treatment.
