It’s always frustrating when we look into the mirror and don’t see the glow of our youth in our cheeks anymore. Instead, it’s been replaced by wrinkles, sagging skin, and creases. To combat these telltale signs of aging, you have the option of using dermal fillers such as Juvederm®.
Juvederm® is an FDA-approved dermal filler that can help restore the liveliness of your youth in a quick, non-invasive procedure that can easily be done in a single afternoon. Dr. Scott is excited to offer Juvederm® to our patients in the Bradenton and Sarasota areas.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is one of the most popular dermal fillers in the world. It’s approved for use in the lips, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds and works by restoring the lost hyaluronic acid in your face. Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is the naturally-occurring substance in our face that gives it its trademark plump and glow.
As we get older, we lose this valuable HA. This causes our face to sag, create wrinkles and begin to show age. Juvederm® works to restore this HA and bring back the youthful vigor you’re used to seeing in the mirror.
What Can be Treated with Juvederm®?
Juvederm® can safely be applied to virtually anywhere on your face. It can be used to address a variety of issues such as:
- Facial Wrinkles
- Laugh and Smiles Lines
- Marionette Lines
- Facial Folds
- “Parentheses” or Nasolabial Folds
- And more
Juvederm®’s versatility is only part of its appeal. By using the naturally occurring HA that’s already in your body, you reduce the risk of allergic reactions and can look forward to a bright, natural look.
