Juvederm and dermal fillers continue to grow in popularity and the art of injecting Juvederm is evolving to a real art form. Dermal fillers when performed by a skilled injector, look fantastic, and you might be amazed to learn what other area filler can achieve results in.
Dermal filler injections can be used to volumize sunken cheeks, a sagging chin and hollowing of the temple area to take years off your appearance.
Facial wrinkles above and around the lips can begin to appear over time due to everyday lip muscle movement. However, environmental factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking and stress can also contribute to the formation of vertical lip lines. Dermal fillers can be used to fill out the vertical lines that run upwards toward the nose (‘smoker’ or ‘lipstick’ lines) and achieve a more aesthetically pleasing lip contour.
Facial Symmetry and Balance
Dermal fillers can be used to balance chin profile relative to nasal projection, and be used to provide facial balance and symmetry.
Jowls and Jawline
Facial volume loss, lax skin and the effects of gravity can cause our facial features to sag. Placing dermal fillers strategically in the affected areas can serve to lift the skin and reduce the appearance of jowls.
Smile lines run vertically from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Dermal fillers can fill out the fold, making it less pronounced without sacrificing the beauty of your natural smile.
Under Eye – Tear Troughs
Marionette Lines and Downturned Expression
Marionette lines are the vertical facial creases that form below the corners of the mouth, extending downward towards the chin. Dermal filler can lift the skin to reduce the appearance of sagging and down turned expressions – making you look sad or angry.
How Juvederm and Dermal Fillers Work
The most popular class of dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid (HA); a sugar found naturally in human skin. HA works by binding about 1,000 times its weight in water. By binding water molecules, hyaluronic acid-based products add volume to the skin to smooth wrinkles and folds, plump lips, and remove scars. HA may also help to stimulate your own body’s production of collagen over time.
What’s the difference – Botox vs. Juvederm
Neurotoxins, like Botox Cosmetic, is a muscle relaxant that will help to smooth out dynamic lines associated with aging. Dermal fillers like Juvederm, are used to create contours, and to fill in deep wrinkles and depressions that are static in nature. They are also used to enhance facial features and restore volume.
Botox Cosmetic and dermal fillers are often used in combination, depending on the type of results that you want to achieve.
