Sometimes it seems like we’re all on a perpetual search for the Fountain of Youth. Interestingly enough, it’s not so much that we want to stay young as much as we avoid getting older or at least the effects of getting older. There are certain undeniable benefits to leading a life of maturity and wisdom. As adults, many of us take full advantage of our stage in life and it’s reflected in the activities we pursue. We buy homes and cars; we have children and raise families. These are things we find fulfilling and enjoy, but were unable in our youth.
At the same time, there are many aspects to aging that we don’t want. Maintaining physical fitness becomes more difficult as we age. We find ourselves plagued with various physical and health issues that we never even considered when we were younger. Gray hair creeps into our once vibrant mane (if we’re fortunate enough to avoid baldness). And then there’s wrinkles… the dreaded wrinkles. Of all the effects of aging, many of us probably dread wrinkles more than death (or at least almost as much).
It’s not just the wrinkles themselves, per se. We find ourselves saddened by our natural inability to maintain healthy young skin. Therein lies the problem. If we entertain options that simply treat or remove wrinkles, the result can look awkward and unnatural. The key is in finding a treatment that effectively tackles the wrinkle issue while restoring a healthy appearance to the skin. For many people, that solution is Juvederm.
Some of the most pronounced wrinkles occur around the mouth and nose. Juvederm is a smooth gel that is injected to instantly smooth away wrinkles producing results that are immediately apparent. There are specific benefits associated with this treatment that make it stand apart from other wrinkle and skin procedures:
- Juvederm is the only FDA approved hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that has results lasting up to one full year after only one short, 15 minute treatment. Yes, I said ONE FULL YEAR. Very cool.
- It’s smooth and comfortable. Other HA filler gels are a granular consistency and result in a less smooth (and subsequently less natural looking) result. This smooth consistency also allows for an easier flow when being applied which is more comfortable both during the injection and after.
- It works for all skin types and is safe and effective. Studies have shown no increased risk of pigmentation changes or scarring in patients with darker skin tones.
- Juvederm is also unique in its effectiveness with all kinds of individual needs. In other words, it’s not a “one size fits all” solution. It is customized to meet a specific patient’s unique facial contours and cosmetic issues with a natural looking result.
Ultimately, your friends will notice that you look better, younger and more vibrant and healthy, but they won’t necessarily be able to identify how or why. After all, you want people to notice you more than the cosmetic work you’ve had done, right?
