JUVEDERM® Treatments Fight Early Signs of Aging
The aging process differs from person to person, and some individuals age faster than others. While some may not care about how they look, many are self-conscious about issues like facial wrinkles and age lines. There are hundreds of treatment options available in the market, but many either have side effects or don’t work as well as they are supposed to.
Dermal fillers are one of the best ways to reverse the signs of aging and give the face a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to elegantly and naturally smooth out folds and wrinkles. They have become a popular method of cosmetic treatment owing to the magnitude of their effects and the low risks involved. Plastic surgeons around the world are increasingly depending on dermal fillers to reverse the aging process. One of the best of the fillers available today is JUVEDERM.
What Is JUVEDERM?
JUVEDERM is a type of injectable facial filler that is used to fill certain scars and moderate to harsh wrinkles in the skin, which can make a person look much older than their actual age. JUVEDERM is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration and has been declared to be a safe procedure.
It is often used as an alternative for more invasive surgical procedures, which can have unexpected complications and long recovery times. Thus, it is an excellent choice for those who are not looking to go under the knife.
How Does It Work?
JUVEDERM is composed of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid easily binds with the surrounding elastin and collagen and facilitates the easy movement of nutrients throughout the tissue. It works by absorbing water from the surrounding tissues to swell up, causing the wrinkles to flatten out and restore a younger appearance.
The Effects of JUVEDERM
JUVEDERM is used to treat a variety of skin problems, like thin lips, sunken cheeks, and a variety of wrinkles around the nose and mouth. While JUVEDERM is a temporary solution, the effects last for about a year on average, and regular repeat treatments are often an option. Plastic surgeons can increase or decrease the treatment dose depending upon the level of correction required. Another important aspect of JUVEDERM is that it does not cause the skin to stretch beyond a given limit. Too much stretching can cause wear and tear.
