As we age, the loss of fat and collagen contributes to the depletion of volume in our faces. Without as much fat and collagen, the skin on our faces not only begins to droop and sink, but also shows wrinkles and lines more easily. Thankfully, there is a convenient and safe way to limit these signs of aging and restore our youthful appearance. That solution is Juvederm.
The providers at Derick Dermatology use Juvederm for patients looking for a solution to age-related facial volume loss. Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is a carbohydrate in gel form that attracts water. The effect of this acid causes the skin to plump up to a youthful, healthy-looking volume.
Juvederm is FDA approved for injection in the nasolabial folds (the parentheses around the mouth). Off-label, Juvederm can also be used for the following cosmetic improvements:
- Increase Fullness in Cheeks
- Reduce Appearance of Circles Around the Eyes
- Lip Augmentation
- Rejuvenation of Aging Hands
The results of Juvederm injections are immediate and can last up to a year. Over time, the effects will fade, as the hyaluronic acid will slowly disintegrate into the body. Regular injections may be needed to maintain optimal results.
