How does JUVEDERM XC Work?
Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HAW in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds – like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth.
Using a dermal filler like Juvederm XC is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
Understanding Where Wrinkles Form.
Your skin consists of two layers known as the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis, or the outer layer of the skin, acts as the skin’s primary defense against the environment. The dermis, or innermost layer of the skin, is composed primarily of connective tissue and provides the skin with a support network. Most facial wrinkles and deeper nasolabial folds occur within the dermal layer of the skin.
Our Skin‘s Natural Moisturizer.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring molecule. Much like a sponge, its primary function is to bind and absorb water, which creates volume in the face. Hyaluronic acid can be thought of as the body’s internal m moisturizer. But, as we age, HA diminishes, which contributes to the presence of lines and folds. Juvederm XC injectable gel works to correct this by restoring hyaluronic acid in your skin, helping to diminish wrinkles and nasolabial folds.
Experiecing Rejuvenation with JUVEDERM.
Juvederm is a non-surgical injectable gel used for the correction of moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles. As skin ages the production of hyaluronic acid (HA) diminishes. Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler which contains a molecule that is common to all humans. Hyaluronic fillers are used to increase the fullness of areas of the face that characteristically “deflates” with age such as the cheeks and brows. It can also be used to fill hollowness beneath the eyes and correct dark circles. It is also used to add volume to lips.
JUVEDERM® Ultra and Ultra Plus, are smooth, injectable dermal fillers that help to instantly restore your skin’s volume, smoothing away facial wrinkles and creases, like the nasolabial folds that run from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth.
JUVEDERM is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to hydrate and add volume to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in JUVEDERM supplements the body’s natural supply of this substance. Because the gel is smooth in consistency, this provides for a natural feel in the skin.
JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus is more robust, giving us the ability to better treat deeper folds and wrinkles. It may last a bit longer, as well.
Plus, JUVEDERM stimulates the natural production of collagen for long-lasting results
