Deep folds and creases in your skin can be a dramatic change from the youthful fullness and shapely contours of years before. With Juvederm and other dermal fillers at our greater Main Line Philadelphia practice, our oculoplastic surgeons can rejuvenate these youthful facial qualities.
Juvederm can treat many different types of wrinkles that are caused by volume loss in the face.
Common treatment areas include:
These facial creases are caused by aging, sagging skin that has lost elasticity and volume. As the skin droops downward, these deep folds and hollows are created. You may feel that you look older and more tired than you would like to look. While BOTOX softens lines caused by muscular activity, Juvederm softens those wrinkles caused by changing qualities of your skin as you age.
Certain types of wrinkles are caused by the loss of hyaluronic acid in your skin. HA keeps your skin plumped with moisture.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in your skin. Part of what it does is to hydrate your skin. It also makes the skin more elastic and prevents some of the damaging effects of free radicals. Hyaluronic acid keeps your skin looking plump, young and fresh. But over time, this component begins to diminish. Juvederm works by restoring lost facial volume with hyaluronic acid. This loss of structure and support in your skin causes deep folds and hollows to form on your face.
At your appointment, we will inject Juvederm into the treatment areas. The surgeon injecting the filler is important because he is educated in the musculature of the face and understands the contours and what it takes to soften the lines and hollows. Prior to the injection, you and he will discuss whether local or topical anesthetic is needed. You can return to work, socializing and any other activities immediately after your appointment. There is no downtime for Juvederm.
Your results should be immediately apparent, and they will continue to finalize for the next few days. Juvederm results last between 6 and 9 months for most patients, at which point another treatment would be necessary to refresh your results.
VOLUMA®, VOLBELLA® and VOLLURE® (VOLIFT® outside the US) are the three latest fillers from Juvederm. They are formulated with a 90% low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid and only 10% high-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid (HMWHA). Most fillers are 100% High molecular weight hyaluronic acid.
*Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume.
