We all want to look our best, and every single person in the world could easily identify at least one part of their physical appearance they’d like to change or improve. Luckily, advancements in dermatology treatments makes it possible for men and women of all ages to change some of their physical attribute to achieve a desired look.
For some people, improving their appearance means enhancing existing features of their bodies and for other, it means reversing the signs of aging. But many patients shy away from such treatments because they’re not sure if the outcome is worth the price tag. So just how long can you reap the benefits of injections?
Dermal fillers, also referred to as facial fillers or just fillers, are a great option to help combat the physical signs of aging. As we age, our faces begin to lose subcutaneous fat and results in our facial muscles sitting closer to the surface of skin. This makes fine lines and wrinkles more visible.
Juvederm is a newly FDA-approved derma filler containing hyaluronic acid (HA). Other fillers rely on collagen to achieve desired results, but hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar found in your skin. It contains no human or animal DNA, making it one of the safest fillers on the market. Juvederm treatments also cause less discomfort and puffiness than other fillers on the market. This is because it has a smooth gel consistency and requires thinner needles for injection.
Juvederm can be used to plump up lips, add volume to the cheeks, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles in the face. Hyaluronic acid fillers, like Juvederm last 8 to 24 months depending on the type of filler and location it is used. This produces longer-lasting results than most other wrinkle reducers.
That means that most patients can go almost two years without having to worry about laugh lines or crow’s feet!
