Changes in the texture and elasticity of the skin are among some of the first and most noticeable signs of aging. As the aging process advances, the skin can also take on a loose and sagging appearance. All of these things indicate a gradual breakdown in the skin’s structure along with significant decreases in both collagen and elastin production. Another important skin-supporting substance that decreases at this stage of life is hyaluronic acid (HA). Juvederm provides consumers with a simple and safe way to rejuvenate their skin from the inside out. This popular injectable instantly restores HA to refresh and hydrate the dermis. Following are several ways Salt Lake City residents can use Juvederm® to add volume.
Hydrate and Plump the Skin
Dynamic wrinkles like frown lines and crow’s feet are the result of tension that’s built up within the underlying expressive muscles. Deeper facial creases such as smile lines or marionette lines, however, are caused by volume loss and diminished skin structure. Due to the more advanced nature of this type of wrinkling, static wrinkles are not responsive to injectables like BOTOX®. Fortunately, however, these lines can be instantly filled in with Juvederm®. This top-rated, FDA-approved gel can instantly restore lost HA in wrinkled facial areas. As this acid attracts and retains water molecules, the resulting plumping effect will instantly fill in lines and wrinkles.
Reduce the Appearance of Smoker’s Lines
Juvederm® isn’t just for large or deep static wrinkles. It is also perfect for correcting relatively minor surface issues. For instance, in certain situations, this filler can also be used to minimize the appearance of vertical perioral wrinkles or smoker’s lines and other superficial creases across the visage.
Get the Perfect Pout
Currently, Juvederm® is making a name for itself in the area of lip augmentation. This is an incredibly low-risk treatment that takes mere minutes to complete at our office in Salt Lake City. The hydrating, plumping effect of Juvederm® leaves the lips looking full, moist, and incredibly soft. If you’re unhappy with the size or shape of your lips, this filler can help.
How Hyaluronic Acid Can Refresh Your Skin
Not only is injectable HA the perfect acid for rebuilding and adding volume to the dermis, but it’s also capable of infusing every level of the skin with moisture. Hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1,000 milliliters of water per every gram. Once Juvederm® has been injected into the treatment area, it will collect and retain local water molecules until the region is perfectly hydrated.
