How Juvederm® Fillers Can Give You Back Your Youthful Appearance

Acting your age is one thing; looking your age — or worse, older than your age — is entirely different. Fortunately, there are steps we can take to maintain a youthful appearance, even after our skin has started to age. Surgery is one option, but it comes with a lot of drawbacks, including risks of infection and scarring, high cost, and permanence. While the last one may sound like a benefit, consider how difficult it can be to predict the outcome of a facelift with real precision. If you end up with a result you’re not crazy about, you’re stuck with it! And of course, even after surgery, your face will continue to age, which means you’ll need to have additional surgery to maintain your results, especially if your “new” face ages in an unattractive way.

With so many “cons” to facelift surgery, it’s easy to see why so many people turn to dermal fillers to reduce the look of their wrinkles and lines, fill in sunken or “hollowed-out” areas, and even gently lift parts of their face. At NeoSculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center, we offer state-of-the-art Juvederm® treatments to reduce or eliminate unpleasant signs of aging, restoring a more youthful appearance using techniques that can be precisely customized for your facial structure and your goals. Here’s how it works.

The science behind Juvederm

Juvederm’s® patented formulations use hyaluronic acid, a substance that’s found naturally in your skin. Once Juvederm® is injected, it immediately plumps up wrinkles, fills in scars and depressions, and restores lost volume in the cheeks and other areas. Over time, the molecules of hyaluronic acid perform a second function, attracting moisture and holding it in so your skin looks and feels firmer, plumper, more resilient, and more youthful.

Juvederm® treatments take just a few minutes to perform, and before your treatment, you can have a topical numbing agent applied to reduce any discomfort you might have. Once the injections are complete, you might have some mild redness, swelling, and tenderness in the injection sites, and there might even be a little bruising if you have very sensitive skin. However, all of these issues are temporary and resolve soon afterward. There’s no downtime, so you can get back to your regular activities right away. Plus, your results can last from one to two years, and you can have touch-up treatments to maintain those results indefinitely.

Targeting the signs of aging

Juvederm® comes in different formulations. Each formulation is optimized both for the area that’s being treated and for the results you’re looking to achieve. As a result, Juvederm® can be used to restore a more youthful look in just about any area of your face. Some of the most popular uses of Juvederm® include these signs of aging:

When used to restore lost volume in the cheek areas, Juvederm® can actually provide a gentle lift to the lower face region, helping smooth very fine lines and rejuvenating your entire midface region.

Juvederm® is designed to treat static wrinkles that form as a result of sun exposure, genetic factors, illness, gravity, and similar factors. It’s not intended to treat dynamic wrinkles that form as a result of repeated facial movements (like crow’s feet and frown lines). But the good news is, Juvederm® injections are compatible with BOTOXTM treatments, and BOTOXTM is designed to treat dynamic wrinkles (but not static wrinkles). Many patients opt to have both Juvederm®  and BOTOXTM treatments to address both static and dynamic wrinkles throughout the facial region. This type of combined treatment is often referred to as a “liquid facelift.”
