Injectable fillers like Juvederm run a close second to Botox in popularity. Why? Because they work.
After age 50, most women start to see some laxity forming in the skin of their face and neck. These peri-menopausal and menopausal years are when estrogen levels decline and so does collagen production. Less collagen means the resilience of facial skin tissue lessens, leading to fine line wrinkles and sagging, drooping skin.
At some point, when there is an excessive amount of loose skin, a minimally invasive lower facelift may be the best solution. However, until that time, dermal fillers such as Juvederm can be used to fill droopy areas and give the face a more lifted look. Among the most popular areas for Juvederm injections are along the nasolabial folds (nose to alongside the mouth) and in the chin area.
The results of Juvederm injections can last up to nine months. The time varies by the individual, sun exposure, smoking, healthy diet, stress and lifestyle.
If considering Juvederm injections, be sure to price compare. Some facial cosmetic surgeons, such as Dr. Robert J. Smyth, charge by the syringe while others may charge by the area of the face. Above all else, be sure to choose a facial cosmetic surgeon who is highly experienced in using Juvederm and other injectables. There is definitely an art to getting the beautiful, natural results you want
