The skin changes that come with getting older are an unpleasant reality of life. If you are of a certain age, you have likely noticed your skin gradually becoming dryer, thinner, and more wrinkled. While some degree of skin aging is to be expected, there are treatments available that can safely slow or even partially reverse the visible signs of skin aging. One such treatment that we have available at our office in Sarasota is Juvederm Vollure®.
Anti-Aging Without Surgery
Minimally-invasive techniques are becoming increasingly popular due to the development of cosmetic innovations that significantly enhance the face without the need for lengthy downtimes to recover from side effects. Dermal fillers are injectable substances that can restore lost facial volume, smooth and hydrate skin, and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
A Look at Juvederm Vollure®
Juvederm Vollure® is a breakthrough dermal filler treatment that was approved by the FDA this year for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. Most fillers offer results that last up to one year, but Juvederm Vollure® patients can enjoy their results for up to 18 months.
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
To understand what makes Juvederm Vollure® so effective at treating folds and wrinkles, it is important to realize why skin ages in the first place. One of the greatest contributors to healthy, moist skin is a substance known as hyaluronic acid.
This important material is created by your body in large amounts when you are young. It is important because it plays a unique role in the body, and particularly in your skin. Hyaluronic acid is able to hold many times its own weight in moisture within your skin. As you age, you lose much of this substance, and your skin begins drying and cracking as a result.
Juvederm Vollure® works by correcting this age-related deficiency, leading to smoother skin that displays fewer signs of wrinkles and folds. Your skin becomes hydrated from within. Patients love Juvederm Vollure® because it leads to significant results that appear very soft and natural.
Juvederm Vollure® is manufactured using the patented Vycross technology that is used in other Juvederm® products. It offers the longest-lasting results for folds and creases in certain areas of the face.
Patients love the fact that Juvederm Vollure® offers immediate results that only continue to improve with time. Although your results can last up to 18 months, you will need to eventually return to our office in Sarasota or Bradenton for additional treatments once the material is eventually absorbed by your body.
