Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid(HA). It is almost like a sponge that helps to hold moisture in and keep the skin looking plump. As you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds – like those parentheses around your nose and mouth. Using a dermal filler like Juvederm is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. It works almost instantly and the results typically last between 9-12 months.
As we get older our skin ages and the architecture of our muscle changes. Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors such as cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, and damage caused by free radicals. However, there is a muscular component as well. The 11′s – those vertical lines that appear between your brows – result from muscle contractions. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of contractions, those wrinkles can stay even after the muscles are at rest. Botox works my decreasing the nerve signals to these muscles, which helps the muscles to relax, thereby decreasing the lines that form between the muscles. One treatment usually lasts about 3-4 months.
