You may have noticed some major changes to the way your skin looks as you’ve gotten older. Want younger-looking skin? Our Juvederm treatments at Michael I. Jacobs M.D. Dermatology and Laser Center in New York, NY could be exactly what you’re looking for.
What Is Juvederm Used for?
Unhappy with the way your skin looks? Perhaps you’re noticing more and more wrinkles and you’re not pleased with the way they’re aging your face. If you’re feeling self-conscious because of the way aging has affected your skin, then getting a dermal filler like Juvederm can help.
This FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based filler is injected into your desired areas using a fine and precise needle. When you get this filler, you’ll get fast, effective results that you’re sure to love. There are several areas where this product can be applied. If you have any of the following concerns, then you can use this filler to help you look younger and healthier.
One of the common side effects of aging is a loss of volume in the skin. As you get older, you lose amounts of a naturally-occurring sugar called hyaluronic acid. This sugar provides your face with fullness and helps keep it hydrated. As you get older, you lose significant amounts of it. This loss tends to be most visible in the cheeks.
If your cheeks are looking hollow or you’re noticing the skin sagging and getting looser, then this dermal filler can help. The Voluma formula is specifically designed to help add fullness to the cheeks, making you look more youthful.
One of the places where wrinkles tend to show up prominently is the area around your nose and mouth. As you lose volume here, you’ll likely notice vertical lines forming in between your mouth and nose. These are called nasolabial folds, laugh lines, or smile lines.
If you’ve noticed smile lines forming on your face and you want to get back a youthful, wrinkle-free look, then getting this dermal filler can help. The Vollure formula will put the volume back into this area, tightening the skin and smoothing out any wrinkles that may have been forming.
The way your lips look can hugely affect your overall appearance. If you have thin lips, then you might not like how serious they make you look. As you’ve gotten older and lost volume in your lips, you may have also noticed lipstick lines forming on them, aging your appearance.
If you’re not feeling satisfied with the way your lips look, then the Volbella formula can help. It will inject more hyaluronic acid into your lips, making them appear fuller and more defined. By filling in your lips, it will also smooth out any lines that may have been forming on them.
How Does Juvederm Work?
Your skin is made of several different chemicals. These chemicals provide it with its structure as well as its fullness. Proteins like collagen and elastic are plentiful in your skin when you’re young, but as you get older your skin stops being able to produce as much of them. The same is true for the hyaluronic acid present in your skin.
When you receive injections of this dermal filler, the hyaluronic acid does a few things. First and foremost, it provides more volume to the area where it’s being injected. The hyaluronic acid also stimulates your skin’s collagen production, helping your skin to stay firm and supple.
Who Is a Candidate for Juvederm?
Are you wondering if you might be a good candidate for this treatment? If you have any of the above concerns, then this dermal filler can provide a fantastic solution and can help you look younger and feel more confident.
If you are in good general health and have not previously had negative reactions to similar fillers, you might be a good candidate. You could also be a good candidate if you’re looking for any of the following.
A Safe Treatment
Regardless of the areas you’re concerned about or the type of treatment you’re looking into receiving, finding a safe treatment is one of the most important things you can do. There are many options out there, but not every option will be right for everyone.
This dermal filler is safe for most people to use to treat their aging concerns, which makes it a great option for almost anybody. Its main ingredient, hyaluronic acid, is something you find in your skin anyway, and the filler has been approved by the FDA.
No dermal filler can provide permanent results, but some certainly last longer than others. If you know exactly what you want from your treatment and you’re as confident as we are in this filler’s ability to provide it, then you’ll probably want results that last as long as possible.
When you get injections of this filler, you can expect your results to last anywhere from one to two years. If you want youthful looks that are going to last you a long time, this is the ideal treatment. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and a regular skincare routine can help results remain as long as possible.
A Non-Invasive Treatment
Surgical procedures can provide you with effective, long-lasting results that help you look and feel your best. But one of the drawbacks to these procedures is that they can be very invasive. You may not feel comfortable with that, or you might not want to deal with the downtime associated with surgery.
If you’d prefer something non-invasive to treat your aging concerns, this is the right treatment for you. Our injections will be fast, effective, and you won’t need to worry about hours spent under the knife or a lengthy recovery afterward.
Results That Look Natural
Have you been avoiding getting dermal fillers because you’re concerned the results won’t be natural? You’re certainly not the only one. But while you may have heard many horror stories about people getting less than natural-looking results from fillers, you don’t have to worry.
As long as you visit a reputable clinic like ours with licensed practitioners, you’ll get the natural-looking results you want. We want to make sure you leave our clinic happy with the way you look, which is why we’ll help you get results that are subtle and that you’ll love.
Getting an effective treatment is important no matter what your goals are. But getting a treatment that’s going to provide you with results quickly is equally important. Many dermal fillers out there take weeks to fully kick in, which may not be ideal for you.
When you get this filler, however, you can expect to see results almost immediately. The product will take up space under your skin as soon as it’s injected. Over the next few days, you’ll notice that your results are even more noticeable.
If you’re looking for a cosmetic treatment, then your results are probably your main focus. But you should also consider what the treatment itself will be like. Some treatment options like surgical procedures might be ideal for some, but if a long treatment process doesn’t sound like what you want, a dermal filler like this could be the solution.
Your treatment at our clinic will be both safe and fast. All we’ll need to do is prepare your skin by cleaning it carefully and then applying the injections. Most appointments take less than an hour, and depending on how many injections you need, yours may take just a few minutes.
Easy to Combine with Botox
Most wrinkles on your face are caused by a combination of repeated muscle contractions and volume loss. That means that targeting both your volume loss and your repeated muscle movements will help you get the younger-looking skin of your dreams.
While Juvederm helps with volume loss, Botox is a great way to keep the muscles under your skin from contracting. And the best part is that you can easily and safely combine these two treatments to make sure that you get the best results.
