If you are a Nashville, TN resident who is concerned about the appearance of your skin as you are getting older, you may be looking for treatments that do not require surgery. Many of our patients prefer safe and effective alternatives to traditional surgery since this form of treatment requires little to no downtime. Dermal fillers are injectable substances that help fill in fine lines and wrinkles on the face. The most popular type of dermal filler, Juvederm®, contains hyaluronic acid, which has an affinity for water molecules and can increase facial thickness and hydration.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a type of dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid suspended within an injectable gel. Once injected into your face, the product goes to work immediately to hydrate and smooth your skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid is an important skin component that helps promote facial thickness and reduce the likelihood of lines and wrinkles. This special substance has a unique ability to attract and hold many times its own weight in water molecules, leading to a plumping effect for your skin.
Unfortunately, as you grow older, you tend to become depleted of hyaluronic acid. The amount produced becomes smaller and breaks down more easily within your skin. This leads to skin that is thinner, drier, and tends to develop fine lines and wrinkles.
How Does Juvederm® Work?
Juvederm® works through the injection of hyaluronic acid contained within a gel. This helps correct the age-related hyaluronic acid deficiency that you have been suffering from. The result is skin that increases in hydration and volume, smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The answer depends upon multiple factors. However, most patients in Nashville, TN notice results lasting from several months to a year or more, depending upon the situation. It is important to note that at some point, the Juvederm® that was injected into your skin will become metabolized by your body. You will then require additional treatments in order to maintain your impressive results.
