Add Volume and Vibrancy to Your Skin
Collagen gives our skin volume and elasticity, helping us to look young and beautiful. Collagen production slows as we age, allowing deep lines to form at the sides of the mouth, and extending from the nostrils to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds). JUVÉDERM® is a dermal filler that can restore lost volume, softening the signs of aging and helping you achieve the healthy, hydrated skin tone you enjoyed in your younger days. This injectable treatment is fast, effective, and an excellent alternative to invasive surgical solutions. To learn more aboutJUVÉDERM® and how it can benefit you, contact our Denver office, serving Greenwood Village and Highlands Ranch.
How JUVÉDERM® Works
JUVÉDERM® contains hyaluronic acid, a protein that occurs naturally in the skin and joints, providing cushioning and lubrication. JUVÉDERM® can be injected below the surface of the skin, adding volume and improving its contour, and dramatically softening the deep creases that can form in the face after years of laughing, smiling, and other facial expressions. It can also be used to plump up the lips, elevate the cheeks, make the cheeks fuller, eliminate under eye circles, and achieve facial symmetry.
JUVÉDERM® is not a permanent solution, but it can provide up to six months of enhancement. Once the effects begin to fade, you may choose to undergo subsequent JUVÉDERM® treatments to restore skin volume.
Using Both JUVÉDERM® and BOTOX® Cosmetic
In general, JUVÉDERM® is best suited for deep creases, while fine lines and wrinkles are best treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport®. If you wish to achieve an overall effect that addresses both fine lines and deep creases, you can combine the treatments. Dr. Parker can advise an effective strategy for using both of these treatments to achieve the appearance you desire.
Using JUVÉDERM® to soften lines and wrinkles is a safe, relatively risk-free procedure that has helped countless patients achieve the young, refreshed appearance they desire. All skin injection procedures carry a risk of infection. After receiving a JUVÉDERM® injection, it is possible to experience redness, swelling, itching, or bruising. These side effects usually last less than a week. If you have any concerns about JUVÉDERM® or other dermal fillers, please contact our Denver office today.
Achieve a Younger-Looking Face without Surgery
Signs of aging that appear in the face can have a tremendous effect on the way we view ourselves. Wrinkles and deep lines can result in acute feelings of self-consciousness. Surgical solutions are invasive, costly, and require a long period of recovery afterward. JUVÉDERM®, on the other hand, can be administered in a matter of minutes, and you can begin enjoying its enhancing effects within a few days. If you would like to reclaim a youthful vibrancy in your skin, JUVÉDERM® may be an excellent way for you to achieve your goals.
