Wrinkles and facial lines often appear with age. There are options for smoothing and rejuvenating your skin. One of the most popular options for restoring volume and smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles is a dermal filler called Juvederm®. The procedure is minimally-invasive with long-lasting results. The dermal filler is a gel containing hyaluronic acid; this substance is in your body naturally. When injected, the result is a more youthful appearance. The most commonly treated issues are wrinkles and fine lines and a loss of facial volume. Although your results are not permanent, they are designed to last longer than the majority of similar treatments.
The Types of Juvederm®
Juvederm® Ultra XC is effective for the nasolabial folds between your nose and mouth. These folds are usually referred to as either smile lines or laugh lines. This product is also excellent for lip enhancement and the corners of your lips. This formula has received approval from the FDA. Lidocaine has been infused with these dermal fillers to help ensure you are comfortable during your procedure.
Juvederm® Voluma XC is perfect if you have a visible decrease in the volume of your cheeks or sagging cheeks. This dermal filler was formulated specifically to reinstate volume in the cheek areas. This is the only one designed to offer natural, subtle enhancement and improve definition changes that have occurred as time has passed.
