It’s natural to see changes to your skin as you get older. But you may not be particularly happy about the way these changes are making you look. If you want a long-lasting solution to your aging concerns, our Juvederm treatments at South Lake OBGYN in Clermont, FL can help.
How Long Does Juvederm Last?
Many injectables will last just a few months, meaning you’ll need to stay on top of your follow-up appointments to keep your results. One of the benefits of getting this particular dermal filler is that it’s incredibly long-lasting. As long as you take good care of your skin after treatment, you can expect your results to last for anywhere between one to two years.
What Exactly Is Juvederm?
This is a dermal filler that is injected into the targeted areas of your face using a fine and precise needle. Its main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which is a chemical found naturally in various parts of your body including your skin, eyes, and connective tissues.
When it’s injected into your skin, the hyaluronic acid takes up space and attracts moisture molecules. This helps provide fullness to the places where it’s been injected while also helping your skin to maintain its hydration. Additionally, hyaluronic acid helps stimulate your skin’s natural production of collagen.
What Causes Wrinkles?
To better understand how exactly this dermal filler helps you look younger, it might be useful to learn more about what causes wrinkles in the first place. Your skin is comprised of several chemicals. Along with hyaluronic acid, there are things like collagen and elastin that help your skin stay elastic.
As you get older, the amounts of these chemicals begin to diminish. This means your skin looks less full, and it begins to lose its elasticity. Instead of smoothing out after making facial expressions, lines begin to become permanent with repeated facial movements.
What Does It Treat?
Some people naturally have very thin lips. Others may have lost volume in their lips as a result of aging. Whatever the reason, thin lips can make you look older as well as very serious.
If you would like to help your lips look fuller, this injectable is a perfect solution. One of its formulas, Volbella, is designed to help the lips look fuller. This is also a great solution for people with uneven or asymmetrical lips.
Because your cheeks are one of the fullest parts of your face, when you begin to lose that volume, it tends to be fairly noticeable. You might find that your face looks much more hollow with age.
The Voluma formula is designed to put more volume into the cheek area. This will help you look much more youthful while also adding more definition to your cheekbones. If you have any sagging skin and jowls forming, this formula will lift the skin.
These wrinkles, also called laugh lines, are the parallel lines that run from the corners of your nose to the corners of your mouth. Some people find that they like these lines because they are signs that one has laughed or smiled a lot. But they can also age your appearance significantly, which you may not be happy about.
Vollure is formulated to target the mouth area. Putting more volume into the area will help to smooth out the lines that have been forming here, making you look much younger.
Have you noticed lines going down from the outer corners of your mouth towards your chin? These wrinkles are called marionette lines, and they can make you look far older than you really are.
This is another issue that the Vollure formula can target. When you receive this injectable to treat your marionette lines, you’ll find that you have a softer, much more youthful appearance.
What Is Getting Treatment Like?
Before the Appointment
To ensure that your results are effective and that your treatment is as safe as it can be, there will be a few important things that you need to do to prepare for your appointment. The doctor applying your treatment will give you a full list of instructions.
You will need to avoid certain things before your appointment. This includes drinking and smoking tobacco for at least 24 hours before your injections, as well as certain over-the-counter medications that could thin the blood. This will help to prevent any bruising.
During Your Appointment
When you get your treatment from a qualified practitioner, you can expect it to be safe and the entire process to be a comfortable one. At our clinic, we’ll begin by cleaning your skin carefully and then marking the areas where we’ll be injecting the filler.
Once your skin is ready, a very fine needle will be used to begin injecting the filler. We will use multiple strategic injections to ensure that you get the natural-looking results you want from your treatment.
After Your Appointment
Because this treatment is non-invasive, you won’t need to worry about dealing with a lengthy recovery time after you get the treatment. Instead, you’ll be able to leave the clinic right away, and the recovery process should be quick and painless.
What Are the Benefits of Juvederm?
See Results Quickly
One of the biggest reasons why so many patients and dermatologists love this treatment option is that you’ll see noticeable results quickly. With other treatment options, you may need to expect to wait a few weeks before you see the results of your treatment.
You won’t need to wait when you get this dermal filler. Immediately after your appointment, you should notice a subtle change in the appearance of your face. The product takes up space beneath your skin, smoothing out wrinkles and providing fullness. Full results will be apparent after just a week or two.
Results Look Natural
Many people avoid getting cosmetic treatments because they are concerned that the results won’t look natural. They may be concerned about getting awkward questions from friends and family, or that their faces look fake or plasticky. If this is a concern of yours, you won’t need to worry when you get this injectable.
Because the results from this filler are subtle, your results will look entirely natural. While you’ll still notice a difference in the way you look, you won’t have to worry about fielding awkward questions from friends or family members about whether you’ve had work done.
Treatment Is Safe
When it comes to any kind of cosmetic treatment, safety is often the main concern, and for good reason. Certain treatment options come with a lot of risks and potential side effects, especially things like surgical procedures. If you’re looking for something that you’ll know is safe, consider this treatment.
Juvederm is carefully formulated to be extremely safe. Its main ingredient is something that you can already find in various parts of your body. When you receive your treatment from a qualified practitioner like those at our clinic, you can expect the process to be very safe and effective.
Surgical procedures can offer highly effective and permanent results for people looking for a younger appearance. However, these procedures are not right for everyone. Because they are a more invasive option than injectables, there are things to consider like recovery time and the healing process.
This treatment option is non-invasive, which is a huge benefit to many people. Only a very fine needle is used to apply the product, and the entire treatment process is fast and should take under an hour. You also won’t need to worry about a lengthy or painful healing process.
It Can Be Preventative
You can use cosmetic treatments to treat common aging concerns like wrinkles and sagging. But one of the best ways to deal with these concerns in the first place is by preventing them from coming up.
If you’re in your 20s or early 30s, now is the time to start finding preventative measures as your skin experiences more and more changes. This dermal filler can easily be used as a way to keep skin looking young before it even shows signs of aging.
