Have you noticed changes in the way your skin looks as you have aged? Even with a proactive skincare program, healthy diet and careful protection against the Phoenix sun, your skin will eventually show the signs of age. Changes in the production of collagen and other factors affect the elasticity and firmness of your skin. Juvéderm™ is one option to cosmetically enhance your skin, giving you a more youthful appearance.
How Does Juvéderm™ Work?
Biological changes in the skin can lead to wrinkles, lines and other feature changes equated with aging. Topical creams can only go so far in reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles; to smooth the skin, you may need to go deeper. Juvéderm™ is an injectable gel form of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that wanes in the skin as you get older. Hyaluronic acid improves the moisture, volume and elasticity of the skin, helping smooth wrinkles, plump cheeks and reduce bags under the eyes.
Juvéderm™ is an FDA-approved solution to cosmetically enhance your skin without plastic surgery. Labeled as a dermal filler, the gel is injected in to problem areas that are susceptible to aging. Treatments can reduce lines around the mouth and nose, plump cheeks and soften bags under the eyes. Lips can be smother and fuller for a sexier, youthful smile.
Benefits of Juvéderm™
There are many different dermal fillers available, each with their own pros and cons for fighting the signs of aging. Juvéderm™ has the benefit of being the first FDA-approved dermal filler for the specific purpose of reducing lines and wrinkles. Some of the other benefits include:
• Instant results
• Minimal discomfort – Juvéderm contains lidocaine to reduce pain during treatments
• Lasting results – often results can last up to one year, two-years for Juvéderm™ Voluma XC
• No downtime – many patients can get treatment during their lunch break and return to work
• Safe – the hyaluronic acid is human-based, reducing any chance of allergic reaction or sensitivity
At Arcadia Wellness Center, we offer both Juvéderm™ and Juvéderm™ Voluma XC. The Voluma XC is used for adding volume deep into the cheek area, while the main product is used to combat lines and wrinkles.
