Our face plays a very significant role in our life. It reflects our emotions, creates first impressions, and generally serves as a major part of our identity as a person.

Unfortunately, signs of aging begin to show on our face as we get older. Over time, we start to see fine lines and wrinkles around our eyes, mouth, and face. These can affect how we are perceived.

This is where dermal fillers come into play. Fillers are aimed at smoothing away wrinkles by adding volume and fullness to the skin. One of the various types of fillers, Juvederm, offers a great facial-rejuvenation option for all those suffering from facial wrinkles, sagging lips, and sunken cheeks.

Why You Should Consider Juvederm

Juvederm has a plumping substance known as hyaluronic acid (HA), which can be used to lift the cheeks, smooth out age lines, and add volume to the backs of the hands.

This filler is best used as a treatment of moderate and deep wrinkles like the nasolabial folds and parentheses lines. Botox, another injectable option, is a better choice for treatment of fine lines like crow’s feet and glabellar lines.

There are multiple fillers in the Juvederm product line, and each addresses a different type of issue.

Juvederm Ultra for Fuller Lips

Juvederm Ultra has helped millions of people around the world plump up their lips. Several factors such as age and lifestyle (includes smoking habits and poor diet) are responsible for saggy lips and fine lines around the lips. Juvederm Ultra restores hyaluronic acid in the lips to give them back their full and beautiful structure. It also smoothes away wrinkles around the lips.

Juvederm Voluma for Fuller Cheeks

When we are young, our cheeks are full and have a rosy glow. As we grow older, collagen and elastin production in our body slows down. We also lose tissue from our facial fat layer. These changes cause our cheeks and skin to sag. Juvederm Voluma provides the required lift to your sunken cheeks.

Juvederm – The Science Behind It

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in our body. The HA in Juvederm is a synthetic version of the natural HA that keeps our skin smooth and soft by creating volume. HA bonds with water molecules to create this new volume in the tissues.
