Fill Your Facial Wrinkles With The Help Of Juvederm

Developing the early signs of aging such as wrinkles and fines lines are a natural part of growing older. Though we may age at varying rates, all of us fall victim to these changes at some point in our lives. However, aging doesn’t have to be immediate. We may not have control over aging itself, but we do have control over how fast we age.

For instance, eating healthy and exercising can take years off our bodies and keep us feeling relatively younger. The same can be applied to our appearance. Even before our internal organs start to show the signs of aging, it is our skin that gets affected first. We start to see fine lines and facial wrinkles that become more severe over a period of time.

Now, having facial wrinkles, especially when you aren’t old enough, can be frustrating. We all prefer to have younger looking skin. Thankfully, there are cosmetic procedures that Dr. Kenneth Hughes performs that can help with this. Dr. Kenneth Hughes of Hughes Plastic Surgery utilizes Botox and fillers such as Juvederm to make changes without the involvement of surgery.  One such filler is called Juvederm.

Juvederm: How it Works

You see, as we get older, our skin starts to become loose due to a loss in volume. This causes the skin to sag. But, Juvederm prevents this from happening. It restores the volume and keeps your skin tight and upright.

Juvederm is a solution made up of hyaluronic acid. It is produced in a smooth gel-like state. The hyaluronic acid, which is also produced by our body, helps keep your skin hydrated, thereby boosting volume.

By boosting volume, the Juvederm filler keeps your skin looking smooth and prevents the formation of facial wrinkles and fine lines. Statistically speaking, it is one of the best dermal fillers on the market today.

The Unique Characteristics of Juvederm

There are a wide range of injectable filler treatments to choose from. So, what makes Juvederm a better option?

Well, as stated earlier, it all boils down to the active ingredient known as hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is something that’s produced in our bodies. It is responsible for stimulating the production of collagen (connective tissue material), which helps the skin stay plump and in form.

Now, as the body ages, the production of hyaluronic acid is often affected, which, in turn, reduces the amount of collagen produced. Needless to say, this affects the way that our skin looks. Eventually, the skin starts to sag and wrinkle.

But by injecting the hyaluronic acid, we can compensate for the natural lack of the substance and restore the youthful appearance of one’s skin.

The Juvederm Treatment Process

To begin the procedure, Dr. Kenneth Hughes will identify the appropriate target areas of injection.  Dr. Hughes will then go ahead and inject the Juvederm solution into the targeted areas. After injecting the solution, Dr. Kenneth Hughes will massage the area to ensure uniform distribution and minimize swelling.

The solution contains lidocaine to reduce some of the discomfort you may encounter. As for recovery, you may notice some swelling that persists over about 2 weeks and occasionally you may have a small amount of bruising.
