Wrinkles can leave you looking older than you are, and they can become a source of embarrassment for many people. While you cannot stop the passage of time, there are steps you can take to limit the effects. In addition to caring for your skin through a better diet and limiting sun exposure, you can also actively treat the existing wrinkles with specialized products like Juvederm XC.
At About Face Medical Aesthetics, our medical team uses Juvederm XC injectable treatments to help fight lines and wrinkles and restore a smoother complexion. You can get great results in virtually no time, and still return to regular daily life the same day. To find out if Juvederm XC is right for you, contact About Face Medical Aesthetics today.
Juvederm XC has been approved by the FDA to smooth moderate to severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth. This injection uses hyaluronic acid, a natural ingredient that the skin loses over time, to stimulate collagen and elastin production. The final effect is skin that’s smoother, fuller, more elastic and healthier looking.
This is a naturally occurring sugar that helps bind water. The acid essentially fattens as it fills with water, and this gives skin the healthy, smooth appearance that so many women dream of. As the acid levels fall off in the skin, a layer of fatty tissue is lost, the skin is more easily damaged by the sun, and wrinkles start to develop. Rather than using chemical solutions to overcome the ravages of time, Juvederm XC is a safe and effective alternative that’s available through our medical spa.
Safety of Treatments
It only takes about 15 minutes to administer treatments, and there is generally very little discomfort. People who do report feeling uncomfortable with the injection can ask to have their skin numbed with a topical anesthetic. There’s no need to go through allergy testing prior to treatment because Juvederm is allergen-free. There are no animal derivatives, and the product is completely biodegradable and considered safe.
The Final Effect
One of the reasons women around the nation love Juvederm is because the results are long-lasting. Rather than returning to the treatment centers every few months, they’ll only need to go in for appointments once every 9 to 12 months. People report seeing the effects of treatment immediately, so women can feel more youthful and confident almost immediately.
It’s Not Botox
There are some key differences between Botox and Juvederm XC. While Botox treats the muscles below the skin, Juvederm XC works by treating the skin itself. They’re both used to treat mild to moderate wrinkles, but there are no animal derivatives with Juvederm XC. Botox is also commonly used to treat wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes while Juvederm is one of the top choices for the nose and mouth.
