Ageing is an inevitable phenomenon that we all go through as women. It brings with it numerous changes in our health, especially our energy levels and skin. Unfortunately, not all of us can age gracefully and our skin can demonstrate changes that can make it look rather unpleasant and unsightly in some cases. However, there is good news when it comes to looking after our skin as it ages.
The field of cosmetic medicine has now introduced different kinds of fillers and injections that can plump up the skin and take away years off its appearance. One such treatment is Juvederm and in this article we shall explore how Juvederm can help your skin as it ages
What is Juvederm?
According to experts, Juvederm is a gel filler that contains hyaluronic acid – a natural component of skin collagen. Within the skin, the natural hyaluronic acid is responsible for the firmness and tone of the skin.
As a woman’s skin gets older, it can form of wrinkles and lines that can make it evident from external appearance that she is old. These skin changes are typically visible on the face and present themselves in different ways such as facial wrinkles, crow’s feet, thinning lips, drooping of the corners of the mouth and loss of fullness in the cheeks.
Changes in the skin can start at different ages though they usually begin in the 30s. Mild changes seen in the 30s include the visibility of crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles. Once a woman approaches the 40s and 50s, additional wrinkles and lines may appear which are a lot deeper and are associated with loss of skin moisture and volume. The skin can even lose its natural coarseness and colour in the 60s and 70s.
The benefits of Juvederm
Juvederm has been around for a few years and has numerous advantages over other cosmetic treatments. Firstly, it is well recognised by many of the cosmetic surgery authorities such as the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and also the US FDA. Juvederm is easily injected into the skin and treatments can be performed in a short sitting without causing any discomfort to the patient or any disruption to their regular activities.
The changes that have previously been described in the skin as we get older can be easily treated using Juvederm. The hyaluronic acid gel can be injected under the skin and can promote hydration of the skin by drawing in water and making the skin appear plumper. Plumping of the skin stretches out the wrinkles and smoothens it.
The procedure takes anywhere between 15 to 20 minutes to perform and is devoid of any side-effects after the procedure. Treatments can last a few months and repeat sessions may be needed in the future. Treating any form of fine lines and wrinkles is straightforward, safe and effective.
