As we age, our skin stretches, loses volume and thins out. Collagen and elastin,
two building blocks of the skin, deteriorate over time causing the skin to thin.
This causes everyday acts such as frowning and smiling to highlight lines and wrinkles.
Although these changes in our skin are impossible to stop, there are ways to slow
the aging process and hide its effect using Juvederm.
To counteract the effects of thinning skin, Celibre Medical's Los Angeles and Orange County area offices uses hyaluronic acid
products to fill in the areas that have thinned because of the loss of collagen
and elastin. The process of adding volume to the face is called "shaping the face"
and it is an important concept to ask your practitioner about when considering dermal fillers.
Celibre's Juvederm Treatment Plan
Juvederm is made of Hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally
occuring compound in the body. Hyaluronic acid has a unique ability to absorb 1,000
times it's weight in water. For this reason, Juvederm is able to fill and plump
up folds and creases in the face (or even lips) because of it's ability to absorb
so much water. Juvederm is much different than
Botox in that it fills the wrinkle or crease rather than relaxing the
muscle. Because Juvederm is a dermal filler, rather than a muscle relaxant like
Botox, it can be used to provide volume and definition to the borders of the mouth
and lips. Juvederm is FDA approved for the treatment
of lines and creases, and is a safe, effective option to smooth out the natural
lines of the face.
Juvederm is one of three different hyaluronic acid products that Celibre Medical
uses to fill in deep folds and wrinkles in the face (the other two are Restylane and Perlane). If you feel that your
skin is losing volume and that you'd like to achieve a smoother younger appearance
by filling creases and lines or plumping the lips contact Celibre Medical today
to talk about hyaluronic acid fillers including Juvederm.
