Over time, your face loses that volume that gives your face a young appearance. This is due to the loss of fat and collagen. This loss of collagen and fat can cause lines and wrinkles on the face to become more prominent while making the skin droop and sink. This process results in an older appearance. One popular method of combatting the volume loss associated with aging is to inject hyaluronic acid filler.
One such hyaluronic acid filler is Juvéderm. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that can help reduce or eliminate the lines, wrinkles, and deflated look of a patient's face due to aging. The hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm is a carbohydrate in a gel form that attracts water. With this treatment, you will see immediate plumping of the skin right after the injections. The results of Juvéderm can last up to a year. Over time, the effects will fade as the hyaluronic acid slowly disintegrates back into the body naturally.
Juvéderm is FDA-approved for injection in the nasolabial folds, which are the parentheses around the mouth. Off-label, Juvéderm can also be used reduce the appearance of circles around the eyes, plump the lips, and volumize the cheeks. Juvéderm has also been used for rejuvenation of the hands.
