If you are getting older, you have undoubtedly noticed fine lines, wrinkles and a loss of facial volume in your cheeks have begun to appear. These unwelcome changes in your face can have you looking older than you actually feel, leading to lower self-esteem and even harming your work and relationships. Many people seem to feel that the only solution to problems like these is to have some type of surgery. However, many also would like to avoid undergoing a surgical procedure. The good news is that treatments are available that are safer and more convenient while still offering significant wrinkle smoothing. Among the most popular of these treatments is Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC.
Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC
If your cheeks have lost fullness or if you are dealing with fine lines and wrinkles, Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC may be the right wrinkle smoothing treatment for you. The product contains hyaluronic acid to replace the amount that has been lost with age.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally produced within your body and is found most commonly in muscles, soft tissue and skin tissue. It acts like a sponge within each of your cells, cushioning joints, protecting your eyes and hydrating your skin.
Skin depleted of hyaluronic acid becomes thinner and dryer. The result is a loss of skin volume, which is particularly apparent in the face and cheek area. Injecting additional hyaluronic acid with treatments like Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC can help restore your normal levels and reverse the drying process that leads to wrinkles and facial volume loss.
Is Juvederm® Right for Me?
This treatment may be right for you if you want a temporary solution to a loss of fullness in your cheeks or wrinkles. Juvederm® may also be the right wrinkle smoothing solution for you if you are a healthy non-smoker with realistic expectations.
Is Juvederm® a Permanent Solution?
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is long-lasting, but it is not permanent. The product will be gradually metabolized by your body. On the other hand, Juvederm® offers results that are soft and natural, since the only thing it does is replace hyaluronic acid that you have lost over the years. You will simply look like a younger version of yourself.
How Is Juvederm® Different from Other Dermal Fillers?
The Juvederm® line is different than other fillers in several ways. It will settle in a smoother way than most other products and will not be likely to leave a bump in skin tissue. The treatment also involves the use of a complete syringe, meaning it cannot be stored or shared later. It is also easier to inject than many other products.
