Little Rock has some of the nicest recreational and outdoor activities available in the United States. As pleasant as these activities may be, they sometimes come at a cost: Your skin can start to prematurely age. Although lines and wrinkles are a normal part of the aging process, their premature appearance is not a welcome development. Fortunately, Juvederm® injections can help to address facial wrinkles without the cost, complications, and lengthy downtime associated with some types of cosmetic surgery.
Before examining how Juvederm® can help to correct lines and wrinkles, it may be useful to look at some reasons why skin ages in the first place. Besides the loss of subcutaneous fat, one of the chief causes of skin aging is the age-related loss of substances like hyaluronic acid. This important skin substance attracts moisture into skin cells like a sponge. It is one of the main reasons why youthful skin is moist and thick. Getting older leads to a loss of hyaluronic acid production and a subsequent thinning and wrinkling of the skin.
Juvederm® treatment in Little Rock consists of an injection containing a gel that flows easily under the surface of your skin. The main ingredient is hyaluronic acid. The injections help to replace hyaluronic acid that you have lost because of skin aging. This helps to reverse the process of wrinkle formation and overly dry skin. Immediately after your injections, your skin will begin to soak in moisture to help it become more plump and hydrated.
Juvederm® is actually an entire family of products. Each product works on a slightly different area of the face. We can help you determine which product is right for you and your unique needs at your initial consultation.
For example, as you grow older, your cheeks may grow flatter and skin typically begins sagging. This is due to age-related volume loss in the cheeks, medically known as midface volume loss. Voluma was specifically formulated to enhance volume under the surface of your skin to gently contour and lift the cheek area.
