Green Bay residents tend to have many of the same skin problems common to those living in other areas of the country. Environmental damage, lifestyle choices, and the aging process will eventually take their toll on your skin. However, you do have some choices as to how fast this process moves along. One of the fastest-growing trends in dermatology today is the popularity of minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments and procedures. Many people have seen tremendous improvements in skin aging using treatment with dermal fillers. One of the most popular choices is Juvederm®.
Dermal fillers are injectable substances that promote increased facial volume, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Since they do not involve incisions or surgery, dermal fillers are a type of skin rejuvenation treatment that involves little to no downtime or side effects.
Juvederm® is a type of dermal filler that contains a substance called hyaluronic acid suspended within a gel that is injected into key areas of the face. It also contains lidocaine to enhance your comfort during your treatment.
The gradual age-related depletion of hyaluronic acid is a major cause of skin aging. This naturally occurring substance has the special ability to attract and retain moisture within your skin cells. You may think of hyaluronic acid as a tiny sponge that sits within each skin cell, absorbing and retaining moisture. Hyaluronic acid is so powerful in its ability to attract moisture that it attracts and binds many times its own weight in water molecules.
When your skin has ample supplies of hyaluronic acid, it tends to be volumized, tight, and hydrated. We are able to replace hyaluronic acid lost due to the aging process with an injection of Juvederm®. This will help reverse the skin thinning and drying process, leading to the minimization of fine lines and wrinkles.
Juvederm Voluma® is appropriate for the treatment of the midface region. If you have recently noticed a loss of volume in your face, this may be the treatment for you. Juvederm Voluma® is helpful in the correction of volume loss caused by the aging process.
Juvederm Volbella® is a dermal filler option to add volume to the lips and wrinkles around the mouth. You can get natural looking results that may last for up to a year.
When Will I See Results?
One thing our patients love about Juvederm® is that their results are instant. Once injected, it goes to work immediately restoring skin thickness and hydration.
It is important to remember, however, that your skin will continue to age normally. The product will be gradually absorbed by your body and require replacing at some point in the future in order to maintain your results.
