It’s another cold, dry November-That time of year when we slap on the chapstick, apply heavy creams and sip on warm tea as a means to combat the dry, cold, winter season. Our skin suffers as these harsh weather conditions speed up the process of aging and leave us feeling dry and dehydrated. Luckily, there have been many advances in the beauty industry in recent years and our team of medical professionals are here to help.
We all know how important hydration is to our overall health, especially if we want to stay young and beautiful. Although drinking your eight glasses of water a day certainly helps, we can’t fight the signs of aging and dehydration forever. After the age of 30, our skin starts to lose its collagen and produces less hyaluronic acid. We start to notice our skin is sagging, losing its volume and elasticity. With the help of injectables you can replenish that lost moisture and improve the overall look of the skin.
How does it work?
Juvéderm consists of Hyaluronic acid which is naturally occurring in our skin and cartilage. A wonderful addition to any skincare regime, hyaluronic acid is a humectant ingredient, meaning it has the ability to hold water-up to 1000 times its weight in fact! A topical lidocaine is used to numb the area, then using a small needle, the Juvéderm is injected into multiple depths of the skin. This gives an instant plumping and smoothing effect, softening fine lines and wrinkles as well as contouring areas of the face for a more youthful appearance.
How long does it last?
You can expect results to last anywhere from 6-12 months depending on the depth of placement in the skin, making it a slightly longer lasting procedure than Botox. And since your body naturally produces hyaluronic acid, it will eventually absorb the product through its own metabolic processes.
