It is difficult to pinpoint the moment that a person goes from looking young to looking old. This is because the aging process is very slow and in some ways very insidious. There are a lot of subtle changes that take place in the face as a person ages. It could be just one wrinkle that makes the difference between a person looking youthful and looking worn out and old.
The majority of the facial changes that make a person look old take place around the nose, mouth and eyes. Wrinkles that develop in these areas begin to become prominent as we lose volume in our face. Products like Juvederm® are designed to help restore facial volume and eliminate some of the wrinkles and fine lines that develop as we age.
Using Juvederm® is not just a matter of injecting a dermal filler into the patient’s face. The medical professional who does your procedure will need to first examine your face and identify those subtle defects that are making you look old. Once they identify those defects, they need to determine where to place the filler.
Sometimes it is best to inject the dermal filler right into the area where the wrinkle exists, elevating the skin and subcutaneous tissues. Other times, injections will be placed around the problem area, lifting other parts of the face.
Juvederm® is a powerful dermal filler because in addition to simply filling areas that have lost volume, it creates the condition whereby your body can create and hold onto more moisture. It works to encourage your face to create more collagen, and it stimulates the production of hyaluronic acid. Both of these compounds are key to having a youthful appearance.
The effects of using Juvederm® can be quite amazing. Of course, Juvederm® is not going to take 20 or 30 years off a person’s appearance. However, it will make a sufficient change so that other people will notice that you look younger, more vibrant and well-rested.
After using Juvederm®, you should not expect people to come up to you and ask you if you have had a cosmetic procedure done, nor should you expect them to treat you as if you were a different person. However, you should expect to hear comments expressing the fact that others notice that you look more vibrant and like a younger version of yourself.
The subtle changes that take place in your face that make you look older can be erased using Juvederm®. You will notice fine lines and wrinkles disappear. As a result, you will be able to regain some of the confidence in your appearance that you may have lost as a result of the aging process.
