Facial wrinkles are probably the most well-known sign of aging. Lines and wrinkles can make a person look older than their actual age and can even lower their self-esteem. Most people seem to think that the only answer to the development of wrinkles is simple acceptance or a facelift. In reality, a facelift is only one option for the treatment of facial wrinkles. Other, less invasive techniques are available for those who wish to avoid surgery that can cause complications and involve lengthy downtime.
Treatment options like Juvederm® injections are increasing in popularity. This is mainly because Juvederm® offers a non-invasive method of wrinkle reduction that is safe, reliable and effective. This simple treatment can provide a noticeable minimization of wrinkles that have left you looking older than you really feel.
A Look at Juvederm®
Juvederm® is a type of dermal filler that consists of a gel containing hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that adds volume to your skin. Hyaluronic acid is produced by your own body and attracts and binds water molecules. Once the water molecules have been captured, your skin grows naturally plumper from the increase in hydration, smoothing away fine lines and facial wrinkles.
One of the aspects of Juvederm® treatment that is appreciated by our patients is that their results appear soft and very natural. This is because we are only replacing the hyaluronic acid that once existed in your face. So, in effect, we are turning back the clock to a younger version of yourself. This makes Juvederm® very appealing to those who see facelift results as unnatural.
You might make a good candidate for Juvederm® treatment if you are an adult who is unhappy with your appearance due to fine lines and wrinkles and/or a loss of facial volume. You should also be in good general health and have reasonable expectations regarding your results.
The best way to determine if you are a candidate for Juvederm® is to schedule a consultation at Supriya Aesthetic Dermatology. During this appointment, our team of professionals can assess your facial features, review your health and medical history and then help you determine if Juvederm® is right for you. Smoothing your facial wrinkles may be a whole lot easier than you once thought thanks to this simple dermal filler treatment.
