Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in our bodies. However, as we age, that hyaluronic acid dissipates, making us look tired and aged.
There are many options out there that can reduce the look of deep wrinkles and fine lines, such as Botox and Restylane, but over 2 million people in the U.S. make Juvederm their dermal filler of choice. Our body has tremendous power to heal itself, but over time we lose those abilities because the body produces too many free radicals that can cause stress, disease and cause damage to our cells and DNA. When stem cells get worn out, they stop regenerating new tissue causing the skin to lose elasticity and form wrinkles and folds.
Juvederm in Houston is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid and is injected into the treated areas to add volume and increase skin hydration. As the cells in your skin age, you lose the elastin and collagen that once gave your skin the ability to 'bounce back.' Juvederm replaces lost hyaluronic acid for up to six months to one year.
When you are ready to combat the signs of aging, Juvederm can address the following issues:
Consider adding Juvederm to your skin maintenance regimen and schedule a consultation with Dr. Schushterman to learn more.
You will need to adhere to the pre-treatment instructions to optimize your experience, which includes: avoiding certain medications, drinking alcohol, and smoking. Dr. Schusterman will then inject Juvederm using a microneedle into the affected facial areas. The procedure typically takes 15 -60 minutes, depending on the treated areas.
Many patients do not have any pain or discomfort and often return to work or daily activities after their appointment. It is advised to avoid sun exposure and wearing makeup or drinking alcohol for 24 hours.
Results are immediate, and you will see even more after any swelling subsides. Juvederm treats tend to last for six months and, in some patients, up to two years - depending on the type of filler and area treated.
During your consultation, Dr. Schusterman will discuss with you the areas the Juvederm filler can make a difference on and explain how they treat specific areas.
