Throughout your youth, substances like collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid exist in abundance at the foundation layers of your skin. As you grow older, however, production of these skin-supporting agents invariably declines. This is what leads to the development of deep facial creases and facial hollows. In the past, surgical facelifts were the only way to restore the taut, youthful appearance of the visage. Now, however, Juvederm® injections can provide the same benefits, but with no cutting, no downtime, and no actual tissue removal. Best of all, these treatments at our office in Scottsdale are designed to produce beautiful and entirely natural-looking results.
A Closer Look at Juvederm®
Juvederm® gels are FDA-approved dermal fillers that can be injected into facial areas lacking adequate volume. There are multiple formulas currently being offered by the brand, and each of these is largely comprised of the naturally-occurring acid known as hyaluronic acid (HA). As such, Juvederm® ultimately replaces the HA that an aging person’s body is no longer producing at a rapid rate. This acid is found all throughout the body in the skin, joints and connective tissues. Not only does it help maintain the structural integrity of the facial skin, but it’s also extremely efficient in holding water. Thus, once a Juvederm® gel is injected into a creased or decidedly hollow area, the HA that it contains will quickly attract and retain nearby water molecules. This creates a noticeable plumping effect that fills the treated area in, even as it hydrates the skin at every level.
Why Choose Juvederm®?
There is currently no easier way to turn back the proverbial hands of time than getting Juvederm® injections with our team in Scottsdale. Moreover, this non-surgical procedure is also very low-risk. That’s because the solutions merely replace a substance that your body already recognizes and produces. This means that the likelihood of experiencing an allergic reaction to this injectable gel is almost non-existent.
Which Juvederm® Formula is Right for You?
Juvederm® is best-known for its ability to fill in deep facial creases along the nasolabial folds that are often called laugh lines or marionette lines. This gel can additionally treat facial aging at the brow, around the lips and eyes, at the jawline, and at the cheeks.
