Combat Aging With Juvéderm Voluma

Aging takes a toll on your body. Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and it’s exposed to many elements. A lifetime of sun and pollution exposure and gravity can change the way your face looks, as early as your 30s. When the skin cells are damaged, the skin loses the ability to snap back. It might begin to sag and look thin or wrinkly. Short of living in a bubble, away from pollution and the sun, you can’t avoid the elements. What you can do is to use the right products to take care of your face.

Which Type of Wrinkles Do You Need to Correct?

There are two types of facial wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are the ones that are caused by muscle contractions when you smile or frown. Static wrinkles happen when the collagen and hyaluronic acid in the skin decrease. Those substances are what provide structure and volume. It’s important to work with your doctor to find the product that fits what you want it to achieve.

There are different types of wrinkle fillers. The most popular kind is a hyaluronic acid wrinkle filler. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the skin, and it has been called a “fountain of youth.” Physicians have been using it to treat osteoarthritis and for healing burns and wounds for many years. When applied topically, hyaluronic acid helps your skin retain moisture and promote younger looking skin. Do Your Cheeks Appear Thinner?

If your cheeks are losing volume, you may be a candidate for a hyaluronic acid filler. One of the newest products in this category was just approved by the FDA, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, which corrects loss of volume in the cheek areas. It’s the first injectable gel on the market, and it lasts for up to two years. This gel is for use in any skin tone, for adults over 21.

 

Work with Your Doctor for Best Results.

It is important to find a physician with a vast amount of experience with injectable fillers. Dr. Brennan uses his aesthetic eye and knowledge as well as years of experience to customize treatment plans for his patients to achieve a more youthful appearance. Many of his plans include Demal fillers like Voluma to restore volume to your face.
