Forget the Face-lift: Banish Wrinkles and Lines With Juvéderm®

Banish Wrinkles, Juvéderm, American Beauty Medi Spa

There’s more interest than ever in cosmetic procedures, as technology grows by leaps and bounds and new options appear regularly. Previously, some would wait until the payoff of face-lift surgery became worth the risk, often delaying aesthetic work for years. Today, though, there are dozens of less-invasive procedures that provide many effects to keep your appearance young without the time, expense, and risk of cosmetic surgery.

Dermal fillers are one such contemporary treatment, and the range of Juvéderm® products is one of the leading injectable techniques to restore volume, reduce wrinkles, and generally renew the appearance of the skin on your face. In particular, Juvéderm works well on fine lines and passive wrinkles, boosting your skin with the same substances that diminish as you age.

How dermal fillers work

Many of the most commonly used dermal fillers on the market have hyaluronic acid as a base. It’s a clear and viscous substance that occurs naturally in your body, in the skin, eyes, and connective tissues. Primarily, it retains moisture and provides lubrication. It’s part of the middle layer of your skin, the dermis, where collagen and elastin also reside. As you age, all components of this layer decline, leaving your skin drier and less elastic. The volume lost in the dermis layer also permits surface skin to sink, forming lines and wrinkles and, in general, making you look older.

When formulated into an injectable filler, hyaluronic acid not only provides a physical boost to your outer skin layer, it naturally attracts and stores moisture in the treatment areas. Your skin can benefit from this boost, drawing on this additional nourishment that’s naturally lacking.  

The Juvéderm formulation

Juvéderm products, all based on hyaluronic acid, are made into a series of injectable gels, each designed for specific purposes. Juvéderm Voluma®, for example, targets lost volume in the cheeks and chin, while Ultra XC™ is more suited to line and wrinkle reductions.

Juvéderm Volbella® and Volift® both focus on the mouth area, addressing lip fullness and smile lines, respectively. You can think of the Juvéderm product line as a palette from which your American Beauty Medi Spa aesthetician can draw on for the best results to meet your cosmetic goals.

Juvéderm products also include lidocaine, a gentle, commonly used local anesthetic, so there’s no discomfort with any aspect of your Juvéderm treatment.

Juvéderm treatments

Juvéderm dermal filler treatments are done with a fine needle, directly and quickly treating your problem areas. Unlike some other cosmetic procedures, results are immediate. While the length of your treatment depends on the specific work you’re having done, most appointments last less than an hour. There’s usually no recovery time, so you can return to your regular daily activities immediately after Juvéderm treatment.

The results you see from your Juvéderm face-lift often depend on the skill of the aesthetician administering your treatment. This makes American Beauty Medi Spa the ideal choice for your treatment, since medical aesthetics are the daily focus of the practice.
