It is an unpleasant fact that as we get older, lines and wrinkles inevitably begin appearing on the face. This unwelcome skin change can leave you looking older than you actually feel. Many Sacramento residents lose some zest for life because they have begun looking tired and haggard when they really feel youthful and energetic on the inside. Although cosmetic surgery is sometimes thought of as the only choice for correcting wrinkles and folds, a more recent cosmetic breakthrough allows you to significantly reduce the appearance of certain types of wrinkles. Juvederm® Sacramento uses a less invasive technique to correct problems like these, leading to a softer result.
Juvederm® is an injectable gel that is approved for the correction of aging skin in adults. It is helpful in correcting moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles, as well as for enhancing the volume of the lips.
The active ingredient in Juvederm® is hyaluronic acid. Although many people have never heard of it, this special substance plays a very important role in skin health and appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a substance produced by your body and found in soft tissues in the skin. It is present in areas as diverse as the eyes, joints and skin.
In the skin, hyaluronic acid plays the role of an internal moisturizer. It can hold many times its own weight in moisture, which leads to a plumping of the skin. Skin rich in hyaluronic acid is more moist and radiant and displays fewer signs of lines, folds and wrinkles.
Unfortunately, hyaluronic acid diminishes in quantity as you age. This leads to skin that is dry and cracked, much like a river bed that has dried up. The good news is that Juvederm® injections in Sacramento can replenish moisture that has been lost and help reverse the process.
One of the most gratifying aspects of Juvederm® treatment at our office in Sacramento is that your results are immediate and improve with time. However, you must be aware that your results are temporary because the product will be absorbed by your skin. Follow-up treatments will be needed at this time.
