Getting older is the main reason why individuals begin to experience a loss in facial volume. However, environmental factors and genetics can also play a role. As you begin to lose facial volume as you age, you will start to notice the appearance of more wrinkles and lines on your face. Also, your cheeks may become flatter and your skin will begin to sag. Even your lips will begin to lose their volume.
Many individuals have turned to dermal fillers in order to restore lost facial volume. Dermal fillers not only help a person to have more facial volume in their cheeks and lips, but these fillers can also help to improve the contour of the face. One of the most popular dermal fillers on the market is Juvederm®. This product is produced using hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that provides the skin with many benefits.
First, it adds volume. Second, it helps the skin to stay smooth and retain moisture. This helps you to have younger, smoother-looking skin.
The vast majority of individuals who are beginning to notice fine lines and wrinkles on their face are good candidates for dermal fillers like Juvederm®. As long as a person does not have any serious health problems or does not have a skin infection, they can qualify for this treatment.
Juvederm® treatment does not take much time. Most individuals are only in our office for about half an hour. The treatment can last from nine months to a year. This means that for only half an hour to an hour, a person will be able to experience a more vibrant, youthful appearance for almost a year.
Most patients do not feel much discomfort when the product is injected into their face. As soon as a person finishes their treatment, they can use a mineral makeup over the area that was treated. This allows them to return to their normal activities without anyone ever knowing they came into our office for treatment.
Juvederm® and other dermal fillers have been able to help many individuals in the United States and in other countries to restore lost facial volume. Not only does this help them to look more attractive physically, but it also gives them a confidence boost. This helps them to improve their personal and business relationships and helps them feel like they can conquer the world.
