Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler that is used to replace volume lost through the normal aging process. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural hydrating component of skin that binds and holds water in order to maintain volume in the face. As we age we lose hyaluronic acid and collagen in our skin tissues which causes thinning of the skin,loss of volume, and deflation of the facial tissues. This facial deflation causes hollowed or sunken areas in the face that contributes to an aged appearance. JUVÉDERM® is biocompatible dermal filler that replaces this volume in the affected areas and also helps to fill in deeper wrinkles.

As you age, your body loses much of the collagen and elastin that keep your skin plump, firm, and youthful. Without that padding, your skin begins to sag into fine lines, wrinkles, and folds.
Dermal fillers are gel-like formulations that are delivered to the treatment areas via injections. Once in place, dermal fillers restore lost volume and youthful fullness. Even more importantly, dermal fillers stimulate your body to produce new collagen and elastin, the results of which last even after your body has absorbed the dermal filler.
There are many types of dermal fillers, each of which is formulated for a specific application. When multiple fillers are combined with other anti-aging treatments like Botox®, the approach is sometimes called a “liquid facelift.”
If you have deep lines running from the sides of your nose to your mouth, or from the sides of your mouth to your chin, a dermal filler called Juvederm® might be a great treatment option. This filler is made from hyaluronic acid, which can retain up to 1,000 times its own volume in water.
That plumping works to fill out moderate to severe facial folds, smoothing their appearance and turning back the hands of time. Juvederm also makes a dermal filler that can plump your lips, enhancing their size, shape, and the definition in your lip borders.
Having dermal fillers placed is not a painful process. The professionals at Apex-MD are skilled at placing these injections in the optimal position and at the proper depth.
Injections take very little time, and you’ll feel little more than a slight pinch. If you have especially sensitive skin, a numbing cream or ice application can help numb the treatment area. You may experience some mild swelling and soreness over the next few hours, but these temporary side effects are not a cause for concern.
Schedule an appointment today at Apex-MD to learn more about your dermal filler options, as well as how these products can help you refine your facial contours.
