Juvéderm allows you to see a dramatic before and after when you visit your dermatologist in Jupiter

When you look into the mirror, is your inner enthusiasm and youthful energy reflected back at you? We live in a time in history in which people are remaining healthier and more active longer. Although we are enjoying longer, active lives, the passage of time continues to be seen in our skin. The signs of aging may seem to be ever advancing as the skin is affected by sun exposure, stress, pollutants, and various other factors. Even if you still feel youthful on the inside, your outward appearance may be giving a different impression.

Wrinkles and lines form on various parts of the body for several reasons. One primary factor leading to wrinkles is the loss of volume, which causes the skin to sag. Coupled with this volume loss, the dermal tissues become thinner, and the supportive structure that keeps skin looking youthful decreases.

For many years, the only way to address the natural loss of volume in facial tissues was to remove “excess” skin surgically, which was actually skin that had lost its elasticity. Today, men and women wishing to slow the hands of time can enjoy restored volume with non-invasive solutions such as Juvéderm.

Dermal fillers – the beginning

Dermal fillers first emerged in the early 80s, formulated from bovine collagen. Though certain patients experienced excellent results from treatment, they tended to gradually disappear within about three months. Early dermal fillers were also limited in terms of usage, producing poor results in certain treatment scenarios, such as scars. Disadvantages also included the risk of allergic reaction, further limiting the availability of treatment.

Hyaluronic acid discovered

The development of dermal fillers continued with various types of animal-source collagen products, though these carried many of the same risks and problems as the original formula. Then developers of cosmetic products attempted a formula based on hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in human skin. With this base, the possibility of allergic reaction was essentially eliminated, allowing all people equal access to treatment.

Hyaluronic acid, like collagen, is produced in smaller quantities as we age. Replacing this substance leads to greater volume, softness, and hydration, which reduces the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and deeper folds in the skin, thus improving the contours of the face. Treatment with a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler like Juvéderm allows you to be your own dramatic "before and after" image. Results from treatment in our office in Jupiter are long lasting and, most importantly, naturally beautiful. The refined consistency of Juvéderm creates flawless contours for a rejuvenated appearance.

Looking your best at any age is easily achieved with non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Contact our office today to learn more about Juvéderm and our other anti-aging services.
