The key to healthy looking skin is the abundance of two very important substances, collagen and hyaluronic acid. They support your skin and keep it looking healthy and smooth.
Hyaluronic acid as a natural sugar found in living cells that attracts and binds water hydrating the skin and providing volume.
Collagen is a protein that provides structural support for your skin.
Your supply of natural collagen depletes as you age. The procedure of injecting a natural substance into your skin will instantly erase wrinkles and will lift and increase your lip border.
In addition to BOTOX Cosmetic injections, we also offer Juvederm a cosmetic dermal filler. Juvederm can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead, cheeks, chin, and around the lips and mouth.
The treatments take approximately 30 minutes, while the results may last up to several months.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a ‘next generation’ family of smooth, long-lasting gel dermal fillers, and the latest advance in hyaluronic acid cosmetic filler technology.
Juvederm is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance that already exists in the human body.
Since it is not created from an animal source, there is little chance of an allergic reaction. Juvederm does not require any type of skin testing, so treatment can be performed the same day as your initial consultation.
How does it work?
In the body, hyaluronic acid fills the space between collagen and elastin fibers of the skin.
It is present in all living cells; attracting and binding water, hydrating and giving the skin smoothness and volume.
As our body ages, the ability of the body’s cells to manufacture its own hyaluronic acid is diminished, resulting in the loss of skin volume, producing folds and wrinkles.
What is the difference between Juvederm and other popular hyaluronic fillers?
Juvederm has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid, and is produced with a special formulation process that makes it smoother than that of other popular gels.
The combination of the higher concentration of hyaluronic acid and the smoother formulation make Juvederm long-lasting.
Juvederm is gradually absorbed naturally into the body.
