All About Your Skin
To understand the way that all Juvederm products work, the first thing to do I understand your skin and how it works.
Your skin is made up of several chemicals. This includes the proteins collagen and elastin as well as a sugar called hyaluronic acid.
Why Does Our Skin Wrinkle?
Several factors go into the way your skin changes throughout your lifetime. The main things are the chemicals present in your skin. When you’re young, there are high levels of both collagen and elastin, which give your skin its structure as well as its elasticity. As the levels of these proteins lower, your skin becomes more prone to damage, wrinkling, and sagging.
The hyaluronic acid in your skin also begins to diminish as you get older. This sugar offers a lot of benefits for your skin, including providing hydration by binding to moisture molecules and giving your skin volume. The lower your hyaluronic acid levels get, the drier your skin gets and the thinner your face becomes.
What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a line of dermal fillers. They are applied to your desired areas using a very fine needle. The main ingredient in all of these fillers is hyaluronic acid, and every type is carefully formulated to be effective for different parts of the face.
When you receive this injectable, you’ll be getting a safe and effective way to get back and maintain a more youthful and full appearance.
How Does It Work?
As you know, the main ingredient in all of these fillers is hyaluronic acid. When you come to our clinic for this treatment, our technicians will use multiple strategic injections to apply the product.
Once the product is applied, the hyaluronic acid will begin to help in a number of ways. First, you’ll notice an immediate difference in the fullness of your face as the product takes up space beneath your skin. Second, the hyaluronic acid will stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen, allowing the skin to become firm and strong again. Finally, since this sugar binds to moisture molecules, it keeps your skin hydrated and healthy-looking. This hydration will also allow you to maintain your results for longer.
How Does Vollure Help?
Each type of Juvederm does something different for your skin. This specific type is helpful for the lines that appear around your nose and mouth. This part of your face is particularly prone to wrinkling because it moves around so much.
The lines that form as a result are called nasolabial folds. These wrinkles are also called smile lines or laugh lines. They can make you look far older than you actually are, so getting rid of them using this product will help you get back the youthful appearance that you used to have.
Other Types of Juvederm
If you’re interested in getting this filler, then you might also be interested in other Juvederm products. There are several different ones, all of which target different issues and areas of the face.
Here’s a look at the other Juvederm products and what they can do for you. You may receive one or more of these types depending on the results you’re looking to get.
As the levels of hyaluronic acid and collagen begin to lower, it’s natural for your face to become thinner. Unfortunately, a very thin face can give you a sickly and gaunt appearance which can age you considerably.
If you’re looking to get back the volume that you’re lost, then Voluma will be the right product for you. This particular type of Juvederm targets the cheek area, where the loss of volume is the most noticeable. If you’ve noticed jowls forming on your face, then giving your cheeks more volume will help lift the skin, smoothing and tightening it to eliminate the appearance of jowls.
Your lips play a huge role in your overall appearance. Full, plump lips help you look young and healthy and can even make you look friendlier. As you get older, it’s normal to lose a considerable amount of volume in the lips. It’s also possible that your genetics have given you naturally thin lips.
Volbella will either make your naturally thin lips full, or it will provide you with the volume you’ve lost with age. It will also help give your lips a more defined shape and get rid of fine lines around the mouth area.
