Let’s face it, if we were given the option, we would choose to stay looking young for as long as we possibly could. The interesting thing is that when we are young, we take for granted our youthful appearance. And it is during our youth that we have the ability to do the most to keep our youthful appearance in check. Unfortunately, we don’t understand how precious or how valuable the youthful appearance we have is, and so we do foolish things like spending time in the sun, not watching our diet and not using moisturizers on our face.
Now that we are in our late thirties or early forties, we are starting to see the negative results of the poor decisions we made earlier in life. Thankfully, we live in a time when cosmetic procedures are available that can help us undo some of the damage that we have caused to our own skin.
This is especially the case when talking about static wrinkles. Static wrinkles are the wrinkles that are constantly present on our face regardless of our facial expression. They are the result of a loss of facial volume. Juvederm® is a product that has been approved by the FDA as a way of reversing facial volume loss.
The primary ingredient in Juvederm® is hyaluronic acid. Research and various tests have proven that Juvederm® not only improves the volume of your face, but it also creates benefits that last for up to one year.
The injections are frequently used as a way to address facial wrinkles, but they can also be used to add volume to your lips and in some instances reverse or diminish the appearance of acne scars. Some use Juvederm® to clear out wrinkles on the forehead, address hollowing underneath the eyes and achieve an attractive jawline.
Juvederm®’s ability to treat static wrinkles makes it the perfect complement to BOTOX®. To be clear, Juvederm® is not designed to be an alternative to BOTOX® because both treatments address different types of wrinkles.
One of the nice things about Juvederm® is that when it is properly applied, it leaves you with a natural-looking face. You do not look like you’ve had work done, but instead your skin just looks healthier, vibrant and younger.
Juvederm® is safe because its primary ingredient is hyaluronic acid. The beauty of hyaluronic acid is that it is something that is naturally found in our bodies. When you use this injectable, you do not need skin testing because no animal or artificial products are used.
Thanks to its base of hyaluronic acid, Juvederm® is often the product of choice when it comes to reducing wrinkles caused by a loss of facial volume.
