The dermal filler that helps to turn back time.
As if getting lines and wrinkles weren’t enough as we get older, we also tend to lose some of the underlying fat and support structure (collagen) in our faces. The once youthful fullness in our cheeks starts to flatten out, while the area around our mouth may show creases and valleys, and the nasolabial folds (parentheses-shaped lines from the outer corners of our nose to the outer corners of our mouth) also might deepen.
For some people, the best way to reverse these signs of aging especially where excess skin is causing drooping and sagging may be a minimally invasive lower facelift. However, for many people particularly those in their later 40s and 50s, using a dermal filler such as Juvederm® to fill and soften the creases and folds can provide a beautiful, non-surgical solution with results lasting up to a year.
Juvederm® is the first injectable gel (dermal filler) for wrinkles and folds to be FDA-approved. It comes in different variations depending on what part of the face is in need of treatment. Juvederm® XC, the #1 selling filler in the US, is typically used for lines, wrinkles and folds around the mouth and to soften the nasolabial area. Another variation, Juvederm® Voluma XC, is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel for the cheek area. It instantly creates contour and a subtle, natural lift to the cheeks, restoring a more youthful profile.
Juvederm® fillers are used by Dr. Robert J. Smyth, facial cosmetic surgeon and face and neck rejuvenation specialist, either alone or to further refine areas of the face following a lower facelift. Using a very fine gauge needle, Dr. Smyth gently injects the filler under the skin just where needed for the natural results patients want. Juvederm® products contain a common anesthetic called Lidocaine to reduce any discomfort. The Lidocaine takes effect immediately and most patients are very comfortable throughout the treatment.
“Results are instant and natural and treatments can be repeated as needed, making Juvederm® a popular and proven anti-aging tool,” says Dr. Smyth. “That being said, dermal fillers cannot get rid of loose and sagging excess skin. Only a minimally invasive facelift such as the Timeless Lift™ can remove excess skin.”
