How to Restore Volume and Refresh Your Appearance
Every year we grow older, our body’s production of hyaluronic acid (AH) and collagen – the two building blocks of healthy, supple skin – starts to slow down. Without their hydrating benefits, we lose the round cheeks and full lips associated with youth and gain the fine lines and wrinkles that announce our age to the world. To restore facial volume and refresh your appearance, Juvéderm family of fillers including Voluma, Volbella, Vollure, & Ultra are an effective alternative to invasive surgery. When injected by an experienced practitioner like Dr. Kristen Jacobs of Ooh La La Spa, Anti-Aging and Wellness in Glen Carbon Ill., this clear, FDA approved gel boosts the HA levels in your skin, filling in lines and plumping up tissue to subtly soften your look.
How a Loss of HA Impacts Our Appearance
Year after year, we naturally begin losing subcutaneous fat and HA in our face due to the aging process. If we smoke or spend time in the sun, the exposure can speed up the demise. Without that natural boost of hydration, our skin stretches and our facial muscles work right up to the skin’s surface. That’s when we notice the lines that appear when we smile no longer fade away when we stop. At the same time, HA loss can cause even the most naturally voluptuous lips to begin deflating and thinning as perioral lines, or vertical lines, start appearing on and around the mouth. The change can be especially apparent when our lip gloss begins settling in the lines around our lips instead of on them.
The Benefits of Juvéderm Dermal Fillers
Across the cosmetic and medical industries, HA restoration has become recognized for its efficacy in halting the aging process – at least when it comes to the skin. Although HA has become a coveted ingredient in many topical creams and serums, it’s only truly effective when injected into the skin. Juvéderm offers a complete line of dermal fillers for all areas of the face, but two issues that particularly benefit from injectables include:
Over time, the smile lines around our mouth can deepen from the loss of HA, giving the appearance of parentheses or puppet mouth. When injected into the tissue, Juvéderm dermal fillers restore elasticity and smooth away the lines around the nose and mouth for 12-18 months. Because HA is produced naturally in the body, Juvéderm is slowly absorbed over time for a safe, worry-free treatment of wrinkles.
Whether your lips have always been thin or are now losing their fullness due to aging, Juvéderm Volbella is a simple way to get the enviable pout you want. In addition to naturally-looking lip augmentation, dermal fillers diminish the vertical lines that automatically age you. In a study of Juvéderm Volbella, 80 percent of patients were still satisfied with their procedure a year later, and 75 percent continued to enjoy a line-free smile.
