For many men and women, aging creeps up naturally and gradually. We may not notice it right away, but gray hairs and the development of fine lines and wrinkles can remind us that time is passing. Many Huntington Station, NY area patients incorrectly believe that plastic surgery is the only way to turn back the hands of time, when in reality, there are a wide range of services that patients can consider for more short-term, temporary changes. This includes cosmetic injectables such as Juvéderm.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is just one of many nonsurgical alternative available to patients in the form of an injection. Hyaluronic acid makes up these gel-like injectables and attracts volume where it is needed. Juvéderm is injected directly into the fine lines, wrinkles, and folds to immediately smooth them out and achieve desirable results. This injectable, along with many other types of dermal fillers, will last several months until the body naturally absorbs them. While traditional plastic surgery is more permanent, Juvéderm injections allow patients to make subtle changes and slow the passage of time, delaying the need for invasive surgeries in the future.
Who is a candidate for Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is best for men and women who are in the early stages of aging skin. This injectable rarely causes allergic reactions, and can be used on multiple areas of the face. Additionally, it can be combined with other injectables such as collagen stimulators and neuromodulators like Botox. Combining dermal fillers with other cosmetic treatments such as these can provide patients with a more dramatic improvement, otherwise referred to as a “liquid facelift.” Once skin laxity becomes more severe, patients may not be able to achieve the results they desire with Juvéderm alone and may want to talk to their doctor seriously about facial plastic surgeries.
