As we get older, our bodies naturally lose hyaluronic acid – the substance responsible for giving our skin structure and volume. As a result, signs of aging such as wrinkles, under-eye depressions and fine lines are likely to become more apparent on the face. For patients over the age of 21 who are looking to maintain supple, youthful looking skin as they age, dermal fillers such as Juvederm may be a viable option. There are a variety of cosmetic concerns which can be addressed with Juvederm – smile lines, tear troughs, lip wrinkles and nasolabial folds, just to name a few.
Juvederm: Smile Lines, Nasolabial Folds and More
Juvederm is a clear gel formulation containing hyaluronic acid. Designed to emulate the hyaluronic acid which is naturally produced by the body, this dermal filler works to correct folds & wrinkles and restore lost facial volume. When properly injected, Juvederm smile lines treatment is both safe and effective, with results lasting up to 12-24 months, depending on the product. Aside from smile/laugh lines, this advanced cosmetic treatment may also be used to treat:
- Nasolabial folds, or lines which run from the nose towards the corners of the mouth
- Tear troughs, or depressions beneath the eyes which tend to become more pronounced with age
- Periorbital lines, or wrinkles and fine lines which develop around the eyes (aka “crow’s feet”)
- Loss of volume/definition in one or both lips (lip enhancement)
- And other common signs of aging
Depending on a patient’s specific concerns and aesthetic goals, another cosmetic treatment may be more appropriate than Juvederm. Other anti-aging treatment options available at Kessel Dermatology include Botox and Kybella.
