Are you bothered by the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that have developed on your face? Our clients have been learning how Juvederm® in New York can help restore facial volume and push wrinkles up and out without the need for undergoing surgery. Minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation techniques like these injections have helped many people turn back the clock.
What Is Juvederm®?
The product is known as a dermal filler or a type of injection containing hyaluronic acid mixed within a gel. Once injected into the face, the product goes to work to plump the skin and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. Juvederm® in New York is actually a family of products that work on different parts of the face. The type that you require can be determined at your initial consultation.
In addition to being contained within a smoothly flowing gel, Juvederm® contains lidocaine. This substance will help to ensure your comfort throughout your entire treatment.
How Does Juvederm® Work?
The main ingredient in the product is something called hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that your body makes to enhance skin thickness and keep skin plump and youthful. It works by attracting moisture within your skin, but hyaluronic acid can become deficient in older people, leading to skin that is thinner, drier, and more prone to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
By injecting your face with a gel containing hyaluronic acid, we are replacing much of the hyaluronic acid lost due to the aging process. The result is plumper, more hydrated skin with minimized lines and wrinkles.
Am I a Candidate?
The vast majority of potential patients make good candidates for an injection treatment with Juvederm® in New York. Unless your wrinkles are so deep that they require some form of surgery, you would likely make a suitable candidate. Even younger people have undergone treatment when they are looking to prevent the early development of wrinkles.
Injections may not be as effective as you would like if you are dealing with extremely lax skin or severe scars. We do offer other treatments and procedures to address aging skin, so at your consultation we can help you determine if Juvederm® in New York is the right path, or if you would benefit greater from something else.
