Although aging is inevitable, reversing its signs with anti-aging rejuvenation from Juvederm is possible.
What Is A Cosmetic Injectable?
A cosmetic injectable, or dermal filler, are gel-like substances injected below the skin by a healthcare professional to smooth fine lines, soften creases, and restore lost volume in one’s face. Cosmetic injectables are a popular investment, as they can provide anti-aging benefits without the invasive nature of plastic surgery, or the extensive downtime and recovery process that follows.
What Makes Juvederm Different?
Juvederm is a range of cosmetic injectables designed to lift, smooth, soften, or plump areas of your face to restore a more youthful, refreshed appearance. Juvederm is a dermal filler made with synthetic hyaluronic acid, a substance that contributes to healthy skin and collagen production. Results are instantaneous. Depending on the type of Juvederm used, and the areas treated, you can expect to enjoy its effects to last up to 9-24 months.
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. It is a sugar that binds with water molecules to maintain the moisture in our skin. HA can be found in the connective tissues and fluids surrounding joints, but approximately 50% of hyaluronic acid in someone’s body is found in the skin. With age, people lose HA, and it shows in their skin as dryness, thinness, wrinkles, and folds. Injectables with hyaluronic acid contain a safe, manufactured form of HA that can replenish moisture to skin with signs of age. Topically, HA can treat wounds, ulcers, burns, and bed sores when applied. It is also reported to effectively reduce knee pain when injected to treat osteoarthritis.
What Are Common Causes Of Aging?
One of the most common signs of aging is wrinkles. Research has shown that causes of wrinkles include sun exposure, pollutants, and smoking. Preventative measures include wearing sunscreen, moisturizing, eating a healthy diet, and abstaining from smoking cigarettes.
