Among the most common signs of aging are fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. These indicate a decline in natural collagen production, a progressive breakdown in the structure of the skin and volume loss. Fortunately, it’s possible to quickly and effectively address these issues with Juvederm® injections. This cutting-edge dermal filler can smooth out creases across the visage. It is especially effective when it comes to treating nasolabial folds.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is an FDA-approved dermal filler that is largely made up of hyaluronic acid, or HA. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body and is found at the foundation of the dermis, where it exists to provide structural support. The HA in Juvederm® is strategically cross-linked to ensure optimal results when injected into the skin.
During a treatment session, the filler will be skillfully injected into areas that are showing noticeable signs of volume loss or wrinkling. The HA in Juvederm® will bind with nearby skin cells and attract water molecules. Within a matter of hours or days, this process will have a noticeable plumping effect and will smooth creases and hollows across the treated area.
Why Use Juvederm®?
There are countless reasons why Juvederm® is fast-becoming one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for facial aging. These procedures are unlikely to entail serious side effects or significant downtime. The injections are also capable of producing near-instant results. While the full effects of these procedures may take up to one week to manifest, you’ll have plumper, smoother skin around your mouth immediately after your injections are complete.
It is important to understand that this is a temporary solution to facial wrinkles and volume loss. Given that hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the human body, the HA in Juvederm® is eventually recognized and absorbed. As such, treatments will need to be repeated in order to maintain the results.
