Aging is a natural process and one that both women and men throughout New Jersey try hard to slow down. When it comes to our facial appearance, there are a number of ways to turn back the hands of time and look years younger. One solution to the aging process is injectable fillers such as Juvéderm. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgery, since its introduction to the cosmetic world in 2006, Juvéderm soared to the top of the fillers list and quickly became one of the most popular fillers used to treat wrinkles and lines.
Collagen and Volume Loss
As we age, the collagen under the skin that is responsible for volume, fullness, and that healthy plumping effect slowly begin to decrease. A decrease in the production of this valuable resource causes skin to lose its elasticity therefore showing the early signs of aging with lines and wrinkles that slowly begin to appear. With a simple injection, Juvéderm can add volume back to these depleted areas and add a plumping effect, helping to smooth and soften the surface of the skin taking away those lines and wrinkles along with it.
Juvéderm is one of the most popular fillers we use in our greater New Jersey plastic surgery center. Juvéderm is an injectable soft tissue filler (also known as a dermal filler) that is made of hyaluronic acid injected just below the skin’s surface. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally produced resource found in the body that aids in the moisture, health, and fullness of the skin, which naturally decreases in production with the natural aging process and sun exposure. Juvéderm is typically injected to fight moderate to severe lines and wrinkles and to restore volume loss in the cheeks, laugh lines, and lip areas so that you can see results instantly!
The Benefit of Juvéderm
If you want a simple, instant fix without surgery then injectable fillers like Juvéderm can be the answer. The office visit is quick and easy so you can return to work or normal activities the same day. It is just recommended to not do strenuous activity or exercise for at least 24 hours. Wrinkles and fine lines fade away before you leave the office and you look refreshed not to mention years younger. The best part is Juvéderm can last almost 9 months and in some cases up to a year or longer. A regular routine of Juvéderm injections, added to your daily skin care regime, can fight the signs of aging without invasive surgery. Let’s look at the areas that Juvéderm can help.
7 Ways Juvéderm Can Help You
Fillers, like Juvéderm, do just that--they “fill in” the lines and grooves produced with natural facial expressions like smiling or laughing. With the natural aging process, skin doesn’t bounce back as easily due to the loss of elastin so those lines can “stick around”. Adding volume to the affected areas with an injectable filler can increase plumpness and enhance the way the skin looks making it appear refreshed and rejuvenated. New Jersey area men and women seeking facial rejuvenation may turn to Juvéderm to target certain areas of concern:
Juvéderm is often used around the eyes for deeper creases that some injections, such as BOTOX, cannot help. It can get rid of those pesky lines and smooth out the areas around the eyes to give them a softer look.
A common area for fillers, Juvéderm can erase the lines or grooves around the mouth or nasolabial folds also known as the lines that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth. These “marionette lines” are typically caused by laughing or smiling. Many women, in fact, turn to this filler when they notice their make-up settling in their laugh lines or when they see static lines appear in this area. Juvéderm adds volume to those areas making the lines smooth out and less apparent.
Juvéderm can “plump up” the appearance of thin lips making them look fuller and more voluptuous. It can then be massaged into surrounding areas around the mouth to add volume and decrease the look of fine lines. You can have fuller lips instantly!
Nonsurgical (“Liquid”) Rhinoplasty
With the help of Juvéderm, this filler can be injected in the nose to hide small nasal bumps, rounded tips, or noses that are too wide. It can help shape and contour the nose or simply help straighten out an irregular curvature. It is a non surgical nose job for minor adjustments to cosmetically change the aesthetics of the nose. This is growing in popularity and can make subtle yet dramatic improvements to the nose and facial appearance.
To add volume in order to lift and contour the cheek area, Juvéderm is the preferred injectable filler. Especially helpful, as a non-invasive option, for individuals who have lost weight or volume in their facial area mainly in the cheeks. Juvéderm can remove that “sunken” look by plumping up the area of the cheek bones leaving a healthy, refreshed look.
Another area where the signs of aging can hit the hardest is the forehead area. Juvéderm can fill in the lines, also known as the “number 11” lines, that form horizontally across the forehead still allowing for natural facial expressions to occur but with a more smoother appearance.
Scars or Other Blemishes
Juvéderm can help diminish or eliminate the appearance of scars on the face and other areas of the body. It can also help with scars left behind by acne depending on the size and severity. Juvéderm smooths out the appearance of scarring and can even be done with one treatment with results lasting up to a year or longer.
Candidates for Juvéderm
Anyone is a candidate for Juvéderm that wants help eliminating wrinkles and getting a more youthful look. Weight loss, sun exposure and the natural process of aging are all factors that can change the appearance of our skin. Dermal fillers, like Juvéderm, can be the answer by adding volume, reducing wrinkles and getting a rejuvenated look to your skin without surgery.
Non-invasive cosmetic treatments such as injectable fillers like Juvéderm can be a solution to ward off the signs of aging. As with all cosmetic procedures, a consultation with one of our Florham Park, NJ plastic surgeons at the Peer Group can identify where Juvéderm may best be used. Juvéderm is a safe and effective way to get you looking younger and feeling refreshed. Father time is just a number every year but you don’t have to look your age with the help of Juvéderm.
