If you’re concerned about your facial appearance, you may be an ideal candidate for dermal filler injections. These come in various forms, and each is specially formulated to address specific concerns. Our facial features change as we age and mature, and the smooth contours of our youth often morph into sharp corners and shallow depressions. Juvederm® is one of the most popular dermal fillers because it is quite effective in adding much-needed volume to the cheeks, near the nose, and even around the lip perimeter. Juvederm® is available in several different formulations. We are happy to discuss their purpose with our Norfolk-area residents.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Juvederm® is a gel filler containing hyaluronic acid. This sugar-type substance is produced naturally in our bodies, and its purpose is to bind with and hold moisture. We don’t have a great deal of it in our skin or subcutaneous tissues, however. The gel, when injected into or beneath the skin, attracts water molecules. The result is a slight plumping effect and smoother skin.
If the concern is the fullness of the cheeks and the appearance of the pout, Juvederm® can help. The idea is to inject just the right amount of gel into the correct locations. The gel itself is extremely malleable and will not move about once it has settled into the target area.
Consultation and Treatment
We will consult with the client at our office in Norfolk and make note of the facial contours. We’ll also examine the wrinkles and creases and determine whether plumping will make these lines less noticeable. We can then design a customized treatment plan that utilizes one or more of the various forms of Juvederm®.
Advantages of Juvederm® Injections
Many adults in Norfolk favor this type of dermal filler procedure because it can be performed in-house and with virtually no downtime involved. Unlike a facelift, no skin is repositioned, and unlike other skin treatments, the skin cannot be adversely toned via the use of dermal fillers.
