What Happens To Our Face As We Age?
As you age, your skin thins (both dermis and epidermis). As we age, we also see a reduction in critical growth factors that help us produce collagen and reduce inflammation. Aging also causes reduction of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). Over time, the loss of HA in your skin results in facial wrinkles, volume loss, and fine lines. The skin also gets drier. After women go through menopause, the lack of estrogen can cause the skin texture to change noticeably. It is important to use a good Anti-Aging Skin Care Line, preferably one that breaks down glycation in the skin. Glycation is a sticky substance within our skin that is a by-product of sugar. It causes premature aging and facial volume loss. We all hate wrinkles and lines, like those “parentheses” lines around the mouth or the “marionette” lines below the corners of the mouth. Well, Juvederm Fillers cannot stop us from aging, but it can certainly help us achieve a more youthful look.
So What Do Juvederm Fillers Achieve?
Juvederm injectable gel replaces the HA your skin has lost, bringing back volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles. It can also be used to get fuller lips and to reduce fine lines. Juvederm Fillers are FDA approved as a facial filler. Be sure you visit a board certified physician for any facial injections. Research the doctor and ask about his experience. Dr. Monte Slater is a double board certified physician with 30 years experience in medicine and over ten years in Aesthetics and Anti-Aging. A new filler called Volbella was recently added to the extensive family of Juvederm products. Volbella is FDA indicated to last up to 1 year, and Juvederm Ultra Plus is indicated to last over one year. Volbella is made differently than Juvederm Ultra, in that it’s more crosslinked, so it’s similar to Juvederm Voluma. One syringe of Juvederm Ultra in the US is 1ML whereas Volbella is .55ML, so dollar for dollar Juvederm Ultra may be a better price for lips, on the other hand, Juvederm Volbella might be all that is needed for a subtle change in volume of the lips.
Juvederm, Ultra or Ultra Plus can be injected in the office by Dr. Slater with minimal discomfort. The different names mean very little to the patient and are just differentiated by their molecule size. Meaning it may be Dr. Slater’s preference to use Juvederm Ultra versus Ultra Plus for certain areas of the face or even for a particular facial structure. Most fillers on the market contain Lidocaine within the product, to reduce discomfort during the injections. Lidocaine is an anesthetic. Juvederm Fillers can instantly smooth out wrinkles, and fine lines in the face and the results are seen almost immediately. Though the first few days some patients experience slight swelling or mild bruising, it looks good almost instantly. Dr. Slater prefers patients to call and ask what they need to stop taking (as far as over the counter medicine) to limit any unnecessary bleeding, bruising and swelling).
Voluma is unique because its attributes are over 60%, and will still be in place at the 2-year mark. This is awesome as most other products last from 6 to 12 months.
Voluma is FDA approved for volumizing the cheeks and midface.
