Juvederm and Hyaluronic Acid
Aging is a process that can affect many aspects of your physical appearance, especially your facial appearance. It begins on a small scale, but as time progresses, the changes to your face become more significant due to the underlying changes to your skin and various tissue that lie underneath.
In addition to aging, these changes can be brought on by outside environmental factors and genetics. The result is an aged look and the appearance of constant worrying due to the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. To help remedy an aged appearance, cosmetic treatments like dermal fillers are used.
Using Dermal fillers is a popular means of skin rejuvenation. They are composed of hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance in human skin that works to deliver smooth, healthy-looking skin. One such dermal filler that provides the skin rejuvenating benefits of hyaluronic acid is Juvederm.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an FDA approved filler that is incredibly popular among patients because of its ability to provide them with a smooth and wrinkle free face for up to one year. It targets moderate to severe wrinkles and works to smoothen them out. Juvederm is safe, effective, and provides exceptional results.
Producing the Juvederm Filler
Unlike other formulations that are extracted from animal sources, Juvederm is derived through the process of microbial fermentation of a strain of bacteria. It remains cross-linked and the same is reflected when it is injected into the skin. The hyaluronic acid particles that enter the skin remain cohesive and in place.
Hyaluronic acid concentration determines the effectiveness and the longevity of the treatment. This means that a higher concentration of Hyaluronic acid leads to longer-lasting results. Your treatment will be customized based on your needs and goals to provide the best results possible.
Injection Sites of Juvederm
When the percentage of crosslinked Hyaluronic acid is high, the formulation appears more viscous. These formulations are best suited to correct deeper lines and depressions in the skin. Juvederm Ultra Plus is generally the ideal solution for such procedures. On the other hand, Juvederm Ultra, a lower concentration, is used for face contouring and improving volume.
Benefits of Using Juvederm
Juvederm offers promising results to patients who want a long-lasting solution to facial aging. The treatment experience is comfortable and gentle, meaning you won’t have to worry about any discomfort during the treatment or after it is completed.
The results provided by Juvederm are outstanding. Unlike other fillers, Juvederm gel is smooth and provides results that look and feel natural. The results are instant and some patients only need one treatment to achieve the results they desire. The procedure is fast and efficient and can be done in as little as 15 minutes.
