Our skin is constantly aging, but we may only notice it when fine lines and wrinkles start to appear on our face. The aging process is a natural regression when the skin’s collagen and cell renewal process slows down. Aging often begins deep under the skin where we do not even notice its initial effects. By the time it reaches the surface, you may notice a loss of skin elasticity and a less vibrant overall appearance. If you are seeing that your face is starting to lose its once youthful look and fine lines and wrinkles are starting to take over, then the injectable filler Juvéderm® may be a great skincare solution for you.
Medical Director, Dr. Jerry Lewis and his team of cosmetic specialists at NOVO Med Spa in Frisco, TX, are well-versed in modern skincare advancements to help patients restore their youthful appearance while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. If you are considering injectable fillers to get back that youthful look, learn why Juvéderm® is one of the top choices amongst patients.
Juvéderm® is an FDA approved injectable filler, also known as a dermal filler. It is commonly used to fill moderate lines and smooth away wrinkles, restoring facial contours, that appear over time on the forehead and face. Containing an active ingredient known as hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm® adds volume to your facial tissue by stimulating the producing collagen. Juvéderm® can be used to target troublesome areas around the cheeks, nose, mouth, and lips.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the human body but, with age, production decreases resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. Juvéderm® is made from synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA) that stimulates your body’s natural supply of HA and collagen around those troublesome areas.
Customized treatment areas
Some of the most common signs of aging appear on the forehead. Juvéderm® helps fill those deep lines that may suddenly surface. These deep lines include those stubborn “number 11” lines between the brows. Juvéderm® is a fantastic solution that allows you to have natural facial expressions.
In addition to forehead lines, Juvéderm® can also help to smooth wrinkles in the upper face that appear around the eyes. Patients who have moderate to severe “crow’s feet” can enjoy a smoother, more even appearance.
Nose and Mouth
Juvéderm®XC and Vollure™ are used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and lines on the face, like parentheses lines and other wrinkles around the mouth and nose, by adding volume and making the lines more discreet. Included in this are the nasolabial folds, which are the lines that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth.
Juvéderm® XC and Volbella® are used to enhance the upper lip, lower lip, or both while correcting the appearance of fine, vertical lines on the lips. Juvéderm® is injected into the lips and then massaged to add volume and plumpness.
Juvéderm Voluma® restores contour to the cheeks to treat thinness in the mid-face. The filler is injected into the cheeks to add depleted suppleness and resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Good candidates have wrinkles
The right candidate for Juvéderm® in Frisco is an adult who has wrinkles and wants them corrected. You must also have realistic expectations regarding the outcome of the treatment. While Juvéderm® can significantly help to restore a more youthful appearance, it cannot eliminate every single visible wrinkle. Typically lasting about a year, ongoing maintenance is required to maintain the desired look.
When you are ready to proceed with Juvéderm® injections, the actual procedure takes about 30 minutes or less. The exact time of the procedure is dependent on the number of areas to be injected. Careful consideration by the experienced team at NOVO Med Spa in Frisco is made to choose the correct injection sites. Juvéderm dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic which aids in minimizing discomfort.
Once the filler is injected, wrinkles and lines will diminish as your self-confidence and overall happiness with your appearance increases. Best of all, the recovery is minimal. The procedure is quick, and you can resume your normal day after leaving our Frisco office. It is encouraged that patients avoid strenuous activity for the first 24 hours. It is not uncommon to have some mild swelling or bruising around the injection site for about a week. Patients are also advised to not touch their face after treatment to avoid massaging the filler into other areas.
Juvéderm® dermal fillers can provide visible results for up to one year. For some patients in Frisco who have done several rounds of fillers, the results can last even longer.
If you have been considering dermal fillers to help with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, then Juvéderm® may be your solution. With a reputation for producing natural results, Juvéderm® is a safe and effective way to reduce the visible facial signs of aging.
