Smoothing the facial skin is easy with dermal fillers. These injectable gels add volume in areas where the skin is depressed or where fine lines and wrinkles exist. The skin isn’t resurfaced, and there’s no bleaching involved. Juvederm® is one of the most popular dermal fillers in Salt Lake City and elsewhere because it works immediately and promises long-lasting results.
Your facial wrinkles are likely age-related and are being caused by sun exposure, a lack of moisture in the dermal layers, and a decrease in the amount of collagen in the skin. While Juvederm® can’t turn back the aging clock, it can significantly reduce visual signs of aging. We highly recommend this quick cosmetic fix for our Salt Lake City clients who bring us their concerns about their facial wrinkles and creases.
Juvederm® is a gel compound mixed with hyaluronic acid particles. This natural sugar substance binds with water molecules. We have it in our skin, but only in small amounts as we age. When the gel is injected into certain areas, it attracts and holds water in place. It won’t balloon up the skin surface, but it will provide a cushioning effect that smooths the surface and makes fine lines, wrinkles, and creases all but disappear.
Any healthy adult who is experiencing fine wrinkles, especially static wrinkles, is most likely a good candidate for Juvederm® injections. So long as the individual hasn’t been diagnosed with a serious skin condition in the treatable area, Juvederm® should be safe to use. Adults with nasolabial folds can also benefit from this type of dermal filler. We will explain how Juvederm® will work when we consult with the client, and we will explain why we will choose to use a particular dosage as well as describe the results that can be expected when the gel is injected into certain areas of the face.
A Simple Treatment
Juvederm® is injected in the comfort of our office. At once, water begins to bind to the acid particles. The gel stays in place and acts as a firm base for the skin, and the increased water retention means a slight plumping and filling in of creases and depressions.
The gel is eventually discarded by the body, but repeat treatments at our office in Salt Lake City are just as simple to perform as the initial one. There’s little to no downtime after the treatment.
The added volume in the skin tissues and the tissues that support the skin means a smoother surface. Juvederm® can be used to treat areas near the corners of the mouth, on the sides of the nose, above the nose bridge, and even below the eyes. The treatment doesn’t involve surgery, skin abrasion, or skin layer removal. It’s suitable for all skin types.
