After the age of 30, our bodies begin to lose their natural stores of collagen and elastin. This causes the skin of the face to gradually become more relaxed, aiding the development of fine lines and wrinkles. However, just because the skin is aging doesn’t mean nothing can be done about it. While patients hear of facelifts and other plastic surgeries, they are often not aware that there is a less invasive way to achieve smoother, more youthful skin with cosmetic injectables such as Juvéderm.
What Is Juvéderm?
The team of Kaizen MediSpa of Bethesda, MD describe Juvéderm as a gel that is used best for addressing mild to moderate fine lines, wrinkles, and folds that develop on the facial area. This gel is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that attracts and binds to water molecules. Juvéderm can provide immediate results, adding volume directly to the wrinkles and folds of concern.
How Long Does Juvéderm Last?
While plastic surgery solutions such as a facelift will have more permanent results, Juvéderm provides a short-term option for those who are seeking a less invasive solution. Juvéderm will typically last approximately six months before it is naturally absorbed by the body. At this point, most patients should return to the practice to have more injections completed to keep this new look.
Can I Stop The Signs Of Aging With Juvéderm?
Unfortunately, there is no way to stop the process of aging, especially on the skin. However, with routine injections, many of our patients are able to turn back time and slow the process with regular use. This method of maintaining a youthful look is more affordable than plastic surgery and carries far less risks than a full facelift. Treatment is also discreet, effective, and approved by the FDA.
