When we are young our skin looks healthy because there is an abundance of hyaluronic acid inside of it. This chemical keeps the skin's elasticity strong and prohibits wrinkles from forming. With the passage of time however skin loses it's ability to remain firm. This is primarily caused by reduced levels of hyaluronic acid within the body. As such skin loses structure and volume, which is when wrinkles, lines, and sagging begin to become noticeable. With the help of sunlight, time adds lines to our faces. The first lines to appear are almost always the "parentheses" on the sides of our smiles though these certainly aren't the last.
Removing Facial Lines
Persons concerned with facial lines have several options available to them. Redlands Juvederm is one of the most popular and the most effective at mitigating or removing lines completely. Juvederm works at replacing the hyaluronic acid that has been lost to time. Treatments will smooth away all the wrinkles and folds on your face and leave you looking fantastic.
So how exactly does Juvederm work so well? Manufactures employ something called Hylacross technology which gives it a smooth gel like property. This consistency allows it to do its job for as much as up to one year with just one single treatment.
Consultation With Our Physician
At Health First Medical Weight Loss & Skin Care you'll first meet and consult with our in house physician, Dr. Leonard Schulkind, MD in order to determine if Juvederm is right for you. Provided you are in good health and deemed to be a candidate for the treatment, injections can begin right away.
Many people interested in Juvederm often wonder how treatments are administered. Some believe it to be a gel that's applied directly to the face and others believe it to be medication that is meant to be ingested. In truth, Juvederm is administered via shots directly in facial tissue. Those whom administer Juvederm always use an ultra-fine needle for comfort and make their injections into the areas of the face requiring the most attention.
What To Expect After Treatment
Although Juvederm is safe, as is the case with anything else, there are sometimes side effects to consider. In the case of Juvederm however the most severe side effects reported are mild swelling, tenderness, or itching at injection sites. These side effects typically do not last more than a few days but make remain for up to one week. In addition to side effects patients should avoid strenuous exercise immediately following treatment as well as excessive exposure to both the sun and heat. Ignoring these suggestions may result in swelling and temporary redness. Women whom wear makeup will also want to consult with our in house physician in order to determine when it is once more safe to apply cosmetics.
