If you are concerned about the way aging has changed your appearance, don’t feel like you’re at a loss. At Tarola Plastic Surgery in Murfreesboro, TX, our Juvederm treatments can help you get back your youthful looks. Here’s everything you should know before you make your appointment.
How Long Does Juvederm Last?
Anyone looking for an effective and long-lasting way to treat aging issues like volume loss and wrinkling of the skin should consider getting Juvederm. While no dermal filler can offer permanent results, this filler can last you a long time.
Depending on what formula you get and where you get your injections, you can expect to enjoy your results from this filler for anywhere between 1 to 2 years.
Everything You Should Know About Wrinkling
Several factors go into why you see changes to your skin as you get older. Your skin contains several chemicals like hyaluronic acid (which is a sugar), and the proteins collagen and elastin. These chemicals are in abundance when you’re young, helping your skin stay supple, elastic, and full.
But the older you get, the less able your skin is to produce these chemicals effectively. This means that over time, as you make repeated facial movements, the lines that appear when you make these expressions become permanent. It also results in other signs of aging like dullness and sagging.
What Does Juvederm Do?
This is a dermal filler that, when injected into the skin, takes up space beneath any loose skin and adds in fullness that you may have lost. The main ingredient in this filler is hyaluronic acid, which you can already find in your skin as well as your eyes and muscles.
Once it’s been injected, it will smooth out any wrinkles or sagging that you may have noticed. It will also help your face appear more voluminous which helps you look younger.
What Areas Does It Treat?
One of the places where you’re going to notice significant volume loss with age is your cheeks. Large, round cheeks are a marker of youth, but as you get older, you’re naturally going to lose a lot of this fullness.
This can make your face look hollow and much older than you feel inside. Get this dermal filler to provide more fullness to the area and give you a more youthful appearance. You can also use this filler to get a more defined look to your cheekbones.
Jowls are formed are your skin loses both volume and elasticity. This allows gravity to take a much stronger hold on your skin, dragging it downward.
If you have jowls forming and you are looking to get rid of them, this filler is perfect. By injecting it into your cheeks, the filler will lift your sagging skin and smooth out your jawline for a tighter, more defined look.
Laugh lines, also called smile lines or nasolabial folds, are the wrinkles that form around your nose and mouth. They may have a delightful name and can indeed be a sign you’ve laughed and smiled a lot in your life, but they can also make you look much older.
When you get this dermal filler, it will take up space under your skin in this area and smooth out even severe laugh lines.
Very thin lips can make you look old and more serious than you really are. On the other hand, plump, full lips are often considered a marker of health and youth.
If you have thin lips and you wish they were fuller, this dermal filler is perfect. You can get the plump lips you’ve been dreaming of and reduce the appearance of things like lipstick lines.
What Is Treatment Like?
Before coming in for your appointment, we’ll make sure you know everything you need to prepare for your appointment. When you arrive at our clinic, you can trust that you’ll be well taken care of.
We’ll start by cleaning your skin and then marking the places where we’ll apply the product. We’ll use small amounts of the product at a time to make sure your results are accurate. Treatment is very fast and usually takes less than an hour.
What Happens After Treatment?
As soon as your treatment is done, you’ll be able to leave the clinic and get back to your normal life. There are just a few things to remember as your skin heals. For instance, you’ll need to stay out of direct sunlight as your skin will be more sensitive and prone to burning.
As soon as you leave the clinic, you’ll notice a change in your appearance. Over the next week or so, the hyaluronic acid will take full effect and you’ll see the full extent of your treatment.
