DIY treatments and specialized creams don’t always work to improve the appearance of sunken eyes, hollow cheeks, and dry skin.
So how can you achieve a rejuvenated look without going under the knife?
That’s where dermal fillers come in.
Unlike Botox and Dysport which work by paralyzing your muscles, dermal fillers like Juvederm (approved by the FDA in 2006) work by restoring volume and hydration to your skin.
The active component in Juvederm is Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is naturally found in our skin. Hyaluronic Acid works to keep skin moisturised and healthy, but as we grow older the amount of Hyaluronic Acid in our skin reduces, leading to the occurrence of fine lines and wrinkles.
Juvederm works to revitalize your appearance by restoring the Hyaluronic Acid content for optimal skin hydration.
This procedure is relatively quick and straightforward, and the smooth Juvederm gel can be injected above and below your lips (perioral wrinkles), in your lips, from the corners of your mouth down to your jawline (marionette lines), beneath your chin, around and under your eyes (orbital trough), and under your nasolabial folds (smile lines).
The good news is that the injection is highly targeted so you can choose the specific facial features you want to improve.
The increase in volume will leave you with fuller lips, defined cheeks, a sculpted chin, less visible wrinkles, and most importantly, smooth and healthy looking skin.
Dr. Shifrin offers Juvederm injections to patients who are looking to:
- Soften the appearance of wrinkles and smile lines
- Plump up their lips
- Fill in deep folds in their skin
- Add volume to hollow areas, orbital troughs, and facial scars
- Chisel their cheeks, chin, nose, and jaw line
- Moisturize, hydrate, and lubricate their skin.
Juvederm has long lasting effects and its results should continue to be seen for between 6 and 12 months. After this time period the injected Hyaluronic Acid will have been fully absorbed by your body, requiring you to go for another treatment.
Dr. Sheila Shifrin knows the ins and outs of Juvederm injections and will help you determine if this is the right treatment for you.
