Age has a way of showing up on our face in unexpected ways. Many of us knew that wrinkles were inevitable, but losing facial volume may have come as a surprise. Over time, our skin loses the essential components of collagen and hyaluronic acid. This results in sagging and flat cheeks. Luckily, there is something that can be done about this problem. JUVEDERM® is an amazing dermal filler that can restore lost facial volume.
Signs of Lost Facial Volume
There are a few areas of the face that begin to show loss of volume over time. The cheeks are often the most obvious area. They begin to look hollow, which in turn can make you look tired and older. A loss of volume can also be seen around the chin and lower jawline. In this area, it usually appears as jowls. Even bags under the eyes can be the result of lost facial volume. Age is the number one contributor to this issue but other things can contribute as well. Things that can add to this problem include heredity, weight loss, sun exposure, stress, and smoking.
What is JUVEDERM®?
JUVEDERM® is a filler that is hyaluronic-acid based. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that attracts water molecules and is responsible for hydration in the body. JUVEDERM® can help replace this important component to healthy, youthful skin that has been lost due to aging. Once injected, JUVEDERM® instantly adds some plumpness to your cheeks. As time goes on, the hyaluronic-acid attracts even more water, making your results long-lasting. Once this treatment is done, it will essentially be moisturized from within. The additional volume will also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the area.
One of the best things about this treatment is that lidocaine is included right in the injection. This helps keep you comfortable during and after your treatment. How many treatments you will need will depend on a number of factors. This can be discussed at a consultation, where a personalized treatment plan can be created to accommodate your personal needs and goals.
What are the Benefits of JUVEDERM®?
There are many reasons to choose this treatment over others, including:
- It lasts longer than other dermal fillers
- It makes your skin smoother
- Cheeks and other sagging areas regain fullness
- You get an increase in confidence
