Dermal Filler and Age related changes
Complexities of facial aging are more than just loose, sagging skin, wrinkles and folds that require tightening. Volume loss in the face is a complex component of facial aging. The body natural slows production of the primary building blocks (collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid) that give us that youthful looking skin.
Hyaluronic acid is a component made by the body naturally. Hyaluronic acid is responsible for transporting vital nutrients to your skin, increasing moisture levels, and maintaining the strength and elasticity of skin. As we age, the reduced production causes us to lose structure and volume.
Age is not the only reason for changes we see happening to our face. Sun exposure, smoking, poor diet, drug use, illness and weight loss can contribute to the breakdown of these youthful building blocks. These changes overtime can lead to hollowed cheeks, sunken in under eyes, nasolabial folds, fine lines to mouth area as well as a sagging jowl line. The juvaderm collection of Dermal fillers can help to soften, restore some of these changes.

The Juvederm collection of fillers can be used to refresh and revitalize your appearance. Two main ingredients found in Juvederm products are hyaluronic acid and lidocaine. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally produced by your body. It is a type of sugar that can hydrate the skin since it holds water, and it creates a kind of natural cushion that pumps up volume wherever it is injected. Lidocaine, the second ingredient, is a mild local anesthetic. This helps reduce discomfort when the gel is injected into the skin.
Each one of the Juvederm fillers is unique in its viscosity (thickness and consistency), therefore perfect to meet a variety of different aesthetic needs. Patients will see their results right away, and enjoy a rejuvenated appearance for up to a full year.
