Is your face aging faster than you are?
Your face is the first thing people see when they meet you, and deep wrinkles and creases can cause you to look older than you are and negatively impact your feelings of self-confidence in social situations. A number of factors contribute to the formation of wrinkles and lines on the face: firstly, as a normal part of aging, the skin starts to lose elasticity, beginning to sag where it was once taut. Repetitive movements in certain facial expressions can also accelerate the process, as can holding tension in your forehead or between your eyebrows. Furthermore, some of us are genetically predisposed to lose our skin elasticity and develop wrinkles at an earlier age than others. Fortunately, there are several options to slow and reverse this process, and we at Sinclair Plastic Surgery are committed to providing the most effective treatments.
Benefits of Juvederm
In recent years, injectable treatments are growing in popularity as a less invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery. One type of injectable is the dermal filler, a gel-like substance injected below the surface of the skin to restore volume, minimize the appearance of wrinkles, and give skin a plumper, more youthful, smooth appearance. Juvederm is one of the dermal fillers that we are pleased to offer at Sinclair Plastic Surgery.
Some of the advantages of Juvederm include:
Unlike other fillers that are made of synthetic compounds, Juvederm relies on hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally occurring in the body, making it much less likely to result in an allergic or other adverse reaction.
Little or No Downtime
The procedure’s simplicity and noninvasive nature make it possible to return immediately to daily activities, with only minimal swelling that is usually easily concealed and disappears within hours.
Juvederm is one of few fillers approved by the FDA to last up to an entire year, with results lasting on average about six months in a typical patient.
With some cosmetic procedures, the results are not apparent until after a significant period of healing takes place. With Juvederm, you can immediately see the results and judge for yourself if the injected amount was sufficient, making it easy for you and your plastic surgeon to collaborate on the result that you envision.
If you are for any reason dissatisfied with the results of your Juvederm injections, then hyaluronidase can be administered as an antidote, and it will dissolve the hyaluronic acid within 12 hours.
