Read on to explore how Juvéderm can help you achieve younger, wrinkle-free skin.

Behind aging skin

To better understand why Juvéderm is so effective, it’s helpful to quickly review what happens to your skin as you grow older. First, the many years of exposure to the elements, namely the sun’s ultraviolet rays (which are plentiful here in California), begin to add up as your skin cells prematurely age.

While the sun exacts a toll from the outside, there are processes on the inside of your tissue that aren’t helping matters. Beginning in your 30s, your body naturally produces less collagen and elastin — the two structural proteins responsible for the elasticity and tone in your skin. While this decline isn’t great (just 1% a year), the deficit can begin to add up as you enter your 40s, 50s, and beyond. Not to mention, for women passing through perimenopause and menopause, collagen and elastin production can drop off considerably.

What all of this means is that your skin is less able to bounce back as it once did and wrinkles and fine lines begin to form. As well, without its structural support, your tissue succumbs to gravity and begins to sag, which is made all the more pronounced by the loss of fat that once provided youthful volume in your face.

Filling it in

If you find yourself in front of the mirror, pulling your skin up to regain that lost face of youth, we can help you maintain this fleeting effect with Juvéderm. These dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is a substance naturally found in your body, and they help restore volume to sagging skin that’s developed deep folds and lines.

With Juvéderm, we can accomplish a number of improvements in the lower half of your face, including:

With a few simple injections, we can lift and plump your skin to great effect, without resorting to more invasive procedures.

The process

As we mentioned above, Juvéderm is an incredibly easy procedure, if you can even call it that. When you come in, we sit down with you to review your problems and your goals, and then we set to work. In just minutes, we can administer the Juvéderm through several injections, and then you’re free to go.

Your results are immediate as the filler provides instant volume. And these results can last from four months to a year, depending upon how quickly your body naturally processes the hyaluronic acid. Whenever the effects wear off, however, you simply return for a touch-up treatment.

If you’d like to achieve younger, wrinkle-free skin with Juvéderm, simply give us a call or use the online scheduling tool to set up an appointment.
