Do you find yourself increasingly unhappy with your skin’s condition due to fine lines and wrinkles, dry skin or a loss of facial volume? These complaints are very common among older people and those who have had significant exposure to the sun during their lives. Skin problems like these can go beyond being merely cosmetic, affecting one’s relationships and work.
The good news is that you no longer need to suffer with dry, thin skin any longer. Treatments like Juvederm® have helped many people restore moisture and youthful radiance to their skin without the need for cosmetic surgery that can be risky and require long downtimes.
Juvederm® and Hyaluronic Acid
If you are like most people, you have never heard of hyaluronic acid; however, this special substance plays an important role in skin health and appearance. It is produced by your own body in abundant amounts when you are younger. However, as you age, your body produces much less hyaluronic acid. Why is this important? Because hyaluronic acid makes skin tissue appear fuller.
Hyaluronic acid has the unique ability to attract and bind many times its own weight in water. So, when you have ample supplies, each individual skin cell contains more water and like a filled water balloon, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed away. As you age and produce less hyaluronic acid, problems like dry skin and wrinkles become more noticeable.
The good news is that this process can be reversed in spot locations on your body. Juvederm® is a product consisting of a gel that contains hyaluronic acid and lidocaine. By injecting the gel into your skin, we are replacing the hyaluronic acid that has been lost due to aging or environmental damage. The result is skin that is more moist and smooth, displaying fewer signs of fine lines and wrinkles.
In addition to hyaluronic acid, Juvederm® is unique in that it contains lidocaine. This substance has been used safely in hospitals for many years to enhance the comfort of the patient. This helps ensure that your Juvederm® treatment is as comfortable as possible.
The Juvederm® Treatment Process
This treatment is fast and simple. The gel containing Juvederm® is skillfully injected into your face where you have lost a significant amount of hyaluronic acid. Once it is injected, it can go to work immediately and attract and hold water within your skin cells.
After your treatment, you should notice immediate results. Your face and cheeks will appear smoother and fuller. If you had suffered from lost facial before, you should notice significant improvement in this area. Lines, wrinkles and dry skin in the treatment area should be significantly minimized.
The results of Juvederm® treatment are completely natural-looking and long-lasting. To see if you can benefit from this treatment, make an appointment at Nova Cosmetic Center in Orlando. Contact us today to schedule a consultation!
