As we age, our skin naturally loses its plumpness and suppleness, leaving you with problems like fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of volume. Luckily, there are ways to turn back the clock.
Here at Lake Jackson Medical Spa in Lake Jackson, Texas, Dr. Stephanie Herrera recommends the Juvéderm® family of dermal fillers to reverse signs of aging and add natural youthfulness. Here are five of the skin problems that Juvéderm can correct.
1. Thin lips
If you’ve noticed your lips thinning over time, you aren’t alone. As you age, your body naturally produces less collagen and hyaluronic acid, leading to a loss of volume in your lips.
On the other hand, some people have thin lips because of their natural genetics. Regardless of the cause, Juvéderm Volbella XC injectable gel and Juvéderm Ultra XC are both approved for lip augmentation making your lips look plumper and larger.
2. Lip lines
Ever noticed thin vertical lines above and below your lips? Sometimes called purse-string lines or smoker’s lines, these tricky lines show up after years of repeated puckering, kissing, and smoking.
In addition to plumping up thin lips, Juvéderm Volbella XC injectable gel can be used to reduce these fine lip lines, also known as perioral lines.
3. Sunken cheeks and lost volume
Although you might have disliked the “baby fat” in your face when you were younger, the reality is this extra subcutaneous layer of fat and cushioning in your face contributed toward a more youthful appearance. As you get older, you lose this extra layer of fat, creating a loss of facial volume in your face and cheeks.
Juvéderm Voluma XC is the perfect solution for lost facial volume. As a thicker type of filler in the Juvéderm family, it can be used to fill sunken cheeks as well as contour cheekbones and chins.
4. Smile lines and nasolabial folds
Smile lines, also called nasolabial folds, can be particularly tricky to treat because the affected skin is thicker than other parts of your face. This can lead to especially pronounced folds between your nose and mouth that can seem impossible to erase.
Luckily, Juvéderm XC and Juvéderm Vollure XC are both designed to treat moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds. Though many other injectables focus on relaxing your muscles to reduce fine lines, Juvéderm products actually smooth the folds by inserting hyaluronic acid directly underneath.
Depending on the severity of your smile lines and folds, Dr. Herrera can explain whether Juvéderm XC or Juvéderm Vollure XC would be better for you.
5. Marionette lines
Marionette lines are the vertical lines that often develop at the corners of your mouth, giving you the appearance of a puppet’s mouth. This area is especially prone to stubborn wrinkles because the skin around your mouth is thinner than elsewhere on your face.
Both Juvéderm XC or Juvéderm Vollure XC can be used to treat these and other lines around your mouth. Because Juvéderm XC fillers include hyaluronic acid, you’ll see instant results immediately, and your results should last about a year.
