Dermal Fillers Help Recover Youthful Appearance

Monday, December 26th, 2011

Dermal filler injections have become a popular choice over the last few years for combating and reducing wrinkles. The most common derma fillers are comprised of collagen, fat or hyaluronic acid and work by filling in and plumping up fine lines, wrinkles and thinning lips to create a smoother, younger facial appearance.

Dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid, such as Juvederm, are generally the best option. Hyaluronic acid is a chemical that is already naturally produced by the human body and provides better results than other types of dermal fillers. Allergic reactions to hyaluronic acid are also extremely rare.

Juvederm replenishes the hyaluronic acid that is lost through aging to give you healthy, youthful looking skin. Juvederm injections have a unique gel texture and contain a local anesthetic to help ease any discomfort that might be experienced during the treatment. It is an effective and safe way to diminish wrinkles and revitalize your skin. Juvederm can instantly treat the following problem areas:

• Smile Lines. Parentheses shaped wrinkles that run from the corners of the mouth to the bottom of the nose.
• Fine Lines. Tiny vertical lines that appear above the upper lip and are made worse by stress, sun exposure and smoking.
• Marionette Lines. Wrinkles and folds of skin that run vertically below the corners of the mouth producing a downward, saggy appearance.

Juvederm has been found effective for all different skin types and is FDA approved to last up to one full year with only a single treatment.

Botox Treatments

Botox, which lessens the muscle contractions that lead to wrinkles, has also seen a large increase in the number of individuals receiving this treatment. Frown lines between the brows can make you seem older and grumpy in appearance. Botox is successfully used to remove wrinkles in the areas of the forehead and between the eyebrows. Botox is comprised of botulinum toxin type A and is injected directly into the facial muscles. This allows the skin to appear more level and less wrinkled.

A Botox treatment consists of only a few tiny injections and takes approximately ten minutes to administer. There is minimal discomfort and no anesthesia is needed, but you will need to repeat the treatment every three to four months to maintain your results.
