Juvéderm® Cosmetic Treatment
What is Juvéderm®
Juvéderm is a smooth injectable gel filler composed of hyaluronic acid; a natural substance in your skin which enhances both hydration and volume. It is a fast-working facial treatment which provides smooth, healthy, natural looking results that may last up to a year. Juvéderm® contains a naturally occurring sugar called hyaluronic acid, which has the remarkably helpful property of binding to water. As the acid attracts water, it “plumps up” the skin, filling and smoothing out any surface wrinkles. In essence, it helps replace the cushion of fatty tissue that we lose as we age and as our skin becomes damaged by the sun’s ultraviolet light.
Why do wrinkles form
Frown lines and wrinkles are caused by a number of factors. Over time, repeated movement of the facial skin by the brow muscles, forms lines between the eyebrows. Frown lines are “dynamic”—they happen because of the way a person’s face moves. When you frown or smile or laugh, those facial muscles tighten over and over. These repetitive facial movements such as frowns and squints cause the lines and creases that stick around and can really sap your self-confidence. These lines that appear on your face are the result of muscle movement pulling beneath your skin. As your skin softens, this pulling shows in fine lines and wrinkles across the forehead and at the edges of the eyes.
You work out, eat right, and take care of your skin. Of course, cosmetic creams and lotions will always have their place in your regimen—but for moderate to severe frown lines, you may want to discuss a prescription treatment like Juvéderm® with the experts at Lone Tree Facial.
How Juvéderm® can help
Juvéderm® contains a naturally occurring sugar called hyaluronic acid, which has the remarkably helpful property of binding to water. As the acid attracts water, it “plumps up” the skin, filling and smoothing out any surface wrinkles. In essence, it helps replace the cushion of fatty tissue that we lose as we age and as our skin becomes damaged by the sun’s ultraviolet light. From vertical lip lines to smile or frown lines, our Denver dermatologist can assist you in smoothing away unwanted wrinkles or lines and restore your natural facial contours.
The Lone Tree Facial Difference
These days, you can get your non-surgical cosmetic treatments from the dentist, the gynecologist, or even when you go in for a check up at your family practitioner. But just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, the beauty of Juvéderm® is in the eye (and hands) of the syringe holder. Just because a physician is offering Juvéderm®, doesn’t mean they’re an expert injector. Training and experience matters, it can make the difference between looking natural, rested and beautiful, and having results that are less than flattering. At Lone Tree Facial, our highly skilled physicians and staff have performed thousands of cosmetic injections and we are one of the leading providers in Denver.
