Fine lines and wrinkles are a natural part of aging, but you don’t have to just put up with them. Juvéderm is a great way to smooth out those lines and add volume to the face for a more plump and youthful appearance.
How Your Face Changes As You Age
There are many reasons why your face is likely to change over time:
Your body will naturally produce less elastin and collagen over the years. These proteins are essential in keeping your skin youthful and healthy. Your body’s lowered production of these proteins may increase your chances of developing wrinkles. Additionally, the cumulative effects of environmental factors (like excessive sun exposure) can increase your risk of developing wrinkles.
Wrinkles aren’t the only sign of age. You may lose some of the fat that keeps your face youthful and full as you age. Your skin may also become lax and loose, and the structure of your bones may shift. These subtle changes can make your face look hollow and less youthful.
Fortunately, you don’t have to accept wrinkles and lost volume as an inevitable part of the aging process. Juvéderm can improve these imperfections and give you a more youthful, attractive look.
What Is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm is made of a modified form of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a sugar naturally produced by the body that retains moisture in the skin. It’s a type of cosmetic injectable that temporarily restores volume loss in certain areas of the face, providing long-lasting, natural-looking results. The Juvéderm Collection of Fillers consists of six different products. Each is tailored to target specific areas of the face.
- Juvéderm Voluma XC adds volume, contour, and lift to your cheeks.
- Juvéderm XC and Juvéderm Vollure XC address the loss of skin elasticity and fill out wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth.
- Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Volbella XC diminish moderate to severe facial folds and add volume to the lips.
- Juvéderm Volux XC defines and shapes your chin and jawline.
How Does Juvéderm Work?
The HA in Juvederm provides support and hydration to your skin to restore its volume and smooth texture. A fine needle injects the product into the dermis (the dense inner layer below the skin surface) to erase folds, wrinkles, and fine lines, fill sunken tear troughs, provide facial contouring, and rejuvenate or enhance lip architecture.
