The signs of aging are no fun. You are not going to find anyone who says that they look forward to developing wrinkles, having their hair turn gray or their skin starting to sag. The truth is that the aging process can take a number on the face. Understandably, this affects people mentally and emotionally. It is no wonder why so many people are turning to Juvederm®.
Our face is the most visible part of our body. So when the aging process and environmental factors change the way our skin looks, maybe causing us to have deepened lines or wrinkles or to lose volume in the middle area of our face, it can be quite disturbing.
There are a lot of reasons why our skin develops wrinkles and lines as we get older. However, all of these different reasons usually boil down to our face losing collagen and hyaluronic acid. These two compounds work together to serve as the basic building blocks of our skin. As these compounds are gradually depleted with age, facial volume, the smoothness of our skin and the radiance of our appearance gradually diminishes.
A few years ago, people had very few options when it came to dealing with the loss of hyaluronic acid. However, thanks to Juvederm®, a revolutionary dermal filler, the loss of hyaluronic acid in our skin can be reversed.
One of the nice things about Juvederm® is that it allows you to selectively choose where hyaluronic acid is restored. In the hands of our trained professionals at Facial Aesthetic Concepts, Juvederm® is a powerful weapon that can leave you with fewer wrinkles, increased facial volume and an increased production of the moisture-trapping hyaluronic acid.
Most Juvederm® treatments are given in the mid-face. The results from the injections can be seen even immediately. The injected areas immediately show an increase in volume, and fine lines and wrinkles melt away.
Another benefit of Juvederm® is that since it is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure, most patients do not experience any downtime. Some will even opt to use their lunch hour to have the procedure performed. Once it is performed, patients can usually go right back to their everyday activities.
While Juvederm® provides long-lasting treatment results, it is not a permanent fix. After about nine months or so of having the treatment, you will likely need to get some touch-ups to keep the results. This is because the hyaluronic acid that is injected into your body is absorbed by your body and disappears over time.
If you are considering Juvederm®, it is good to examine your physical health as well as your mental health. The healthier you are physically, the better your body will respond to the treatments. If you are emotionally healthy, you will walk into the procedure with a realistic view of what the procedure can do for you and will walk out happy with your end results.
