There are a lot of reasons why residents in the Los Angeles area are looking for ways that they can reverse the signs of aging, as well as improve their overall appearance. Los Angeles is an area that has a lot of successful individuals, especially in the entertainment world. In order to be successful, most people have to look their best. Also, since Los Angeles has such nice weather, many spend a lot of time outdoors, which leads to overexposure to the sun and elements causing wrinkles. One of the things that we have found to be especially helpful in reversing the signs of aging is Juvederm®. This is a dermal filler that is used to fill in the lines and wrinkles on the face.
If you are unfamiliar with Juvederm® or other dermal fillers, you can very quickly capture the idea of how they work when you think of a balloon. Think about a balloon that just recently was filled with air. What is the texture of the balloon like? It is tight, and there are no wrinkles in the rubber. What happens as time passes and the balloon loses some of the air? The texture of the balloon changes. It is not as tight, there may be some wrinkles, and you may notice that it sags in certain areas. This is very similar to what happens as a person gets older.
As we get older, our skin does not have the same volume as it had when we were in our younger years. We actually lose volume in places like are face, neck, and hands. However, this is not a good thing because the volume in those areas is what causes us to look youthful. Also, our skin does not produce the same amount of hyaluronic acid, collagen, or elastin. All of these things help our skin look smooth, tight, and free of wrinkles.
Juvederm® is a treatment that is designed to replace that lost facial volume. So let’s just say that you have the lines that extend from the corner of your nose down to your chin. When the Juvederm® is injected at certain points, it is going to fill in those lines. So you immediately have more volume and the wrinkles are smoothed away.
