Few things will make you look older than a loss of facial volume and the development of lines and wrinkles on the face. Many people in Salt Lake City would like to have some type of treatment for aging skin, but they don’t know where to turn. Some people falsely believe that the only real choice is surgery, and they would like to avoid such a procedure that they see as being extreme or offering results that can appear unnatural. The good news is that treatments like Juvederm Vollure® XC have become available that can help even the average person significantly reduce wrinkles and folds that can leave you looking older than your actual age.
Juvederm Vollure® XC
Juvederm Vollure® XC is a type of dermal filler that can restore volume and smoothness to your skin. Dermal fillers contain ingredients that fill in lines and wrinkles, hydrate skin, and add volume and fullness to the face. Juvederm Vollure® XC is special because it is the sole hyaluronic acid facial filler that is FDA-approved for the treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles and nasolabial folds.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a very special substance that your own body produces in abundance during your youth. It has the unique property of holding many times its own weight in water molecules within your skin. It acts much like an internal sponge that increases skin hydration and fullness.
Think of a water balloon filled with water. It is quite round and bouncy. As water is released from the balloon, it become less round and more flat. Folds and creases begin developing. Your skin has the same result when it loses hyaluronic acid due to environmental damage or aging. Skin that was once taught and moist becomes flabby and dry.
How Does Juvederm Vollure® XC Work?
Juvederm Vollure® XC contains hyaluronic acid in the form of an injectable gel. Once injected into your skin, it goes to work to replace the hyaluronic acid that you have lost over time. This immediately results in smoother skin that is moister and displays fewer signs of wrinkles and folds.
In addition to providing immediate results, Juvederm Vollure® XC offers results that are long-lasting. The product is famous for offering results that can last for as long as 18 months. After that, you will require additional treatments at our office in Salt Lake City to maintain the results.
