If you’re like millions of other North Americans, you’re looking for the best way to combat the wrinkles and sagging skin that are an unfortunate consequence of getting older without breaking the bank or putting yourself out of commission for weeks at a time. Pricey and risky surgical treatments are out of the question, and spending half your paycheque every month on lotions, creams and pills of dubious effectiveness isn’t your first choice either. So what’s there to do?
The answer may come in the form of low-risk treatments that smooth out wrinkles, like Botox or injectable fillers. Botox is one of the most popular treatments for wrinkles in North America today; if you’re interested in finding out how it works, click here for more information on Botox. Juvederm treatments (one of the most popular kinds of facial fillers) are gel fillers, used to round out facial contours and reduce the appearance of aging. Applied by injection, these products are almost universally well-tolerated, and their beneficial effects can last up to two years. Juvederm injections contain hyaluronic acid (HA) a substance found in youthful skin which hydrates and gives volume to the skin. Over time, hyaluronic acid in the skin breaks down from various factors including exposure to sunlight and other agents, causing wrinkles, folds, and loss of volume. The smooth gel injections replace the hyaluronic acid your face may have lost with age, improving the look of your facial contours.
Juvederm is used all across North America to smooth moderate to severe wrinkles and lines around nose and mouth, reduce smile lines, vertical lines under the nose and “marionette” lines, around the mouth. Facial lines are smoothly filled by the volume of the injection, giving a more youthful appearance. The gel contains lidocaine as well as the HA and is administered with fine needles, making injections more comfortable. There are two formulations of the Juvederm formula – XC, and XC Ultra, which is used for correcting deeper wrinkles and folds. At a clinic like Toronto’s Skin Vitality, trained professionals will be able to assess your facial situation and tell you which of these formulae is right for you.
Together, you and the staff of the clinic will be able to identify the problem areas you wish to treat and determine exactly how much Juvederm is needed to help correct it.These treatments give your face a youthful, refreshed appearance that is subtle but immediately noticeable. Everyone around you will notice the positive change in your appearance, but they will not be able to figure out what the difference is – be prepared for questions from everyone from your co-workers to your friends and loved ones about your new, rejuvenated appearance! Best of all, the treatments are so non-invasive and fast-acting that they can be done over a lunch break or any other span of about 20 minutes, with little or no downtime required for healing. The treatments instantly provide you with an improved appearance as well as a morale boost. And the subsequent results give you the youthful look you’ve been dreaming about, plus the amazing level of empowerment that comes with knowing your face looks more radiant than ever before.
This boost in your self-esteem is one of the greatest and most common side effects of injectable fillers like Juvederm, and will have positive effects on your relationships and interactions with others. No one has to know where your newfound glow came from – but you and the staff of the Skin Vitality Medical Clinic will know that it comes from the amazing benefits of Juvederm.
