Wrinkles are universally acknowledged as one of the most common and unwanted signs of aging. Although they are inevitable, premature aging is not. If you are a Florida resident who is dealing with the sudden appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face, a treatment with a facial filler like Juvederm® could help.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is an injectable gel containing hyaluronic acid that is used to restore lost facial volume and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. It is manufactured with HYLACROSS technology and supplemented with lidocaine, which ensures your comfort throughout your treatment. Juvederm® offers you significant anti-aging benefits without the need for surgery.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance that is created by your own body in large amounts when you are young. As you grow older, your body produces less hyaluronic acid. Juvederm® is intended to replace this hyaluronic acid and restore your youthful levels.
One of the reasons that hyaluronic acid loss leads to skin aging is its role as an attractor of moisture. In fact, hyaluronic acid has the unique property of attracting and binding many times its own weight in water molecules. Just as a water balloon is round and smooth when full, your skin cells are smooth when they contain adequate hyaluronic acid and the moisture it attracts. A hyaluronic acid deficiency leads to skin that is thinner and dry, which makes it more prone to the development of lines and wrinkles.
Your Juvederm® Treatment
Juvederm® works by increasing facial volume through an increase in moisture. The treatment is safe and effective for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds on the face. At some point, the product will be metabolized by your body and require periodic replacement injections at our office in Florida in order to maintain your results.
