Have you ever thought about what it is that actually makes a person look older? When you answer this question quickly, you may say that wrinkles make a person look older. In part, this is true. However, even babies, children, teenagers and young adults have wrinkles. Wrinkles can happen when a person smiles or makes some kind of facial expression. When these wrinkles are seen on a young person’s face, they do not make them look old.
One of the main things that causes a person to look older is the loss of facial volume. As the years go by, all of us begin to lose fat in our face. This loss of volume causes the skin to sag. Just think of how a balloon looks when it is inflated. The rubber is pulled tight, which means that there are no wrinkles. However, when the balloon has no air in it, the rubber is a different texture. This same idea can be applied to a person’s face. When a person has facial fat, it helps the face stay full and youthful-looking. As the fat goes away, it causes the skin to sag. This causes static wrinkles on the face as well as a loss of facial volume. This is where dermal fillers like Juvederm® enter the picture.
Juvederm® is a great way to restore lost facial volume and help individuals who are looking older because of the loss of fat in their face. It is very skillfully injected into different parts of the face in order to add more volume. It can be injected directly into deep wrinkles in order to smooth them out. It can also be injected into other areas to add a little bit more volume.
The great thing about this product is that it is based on a substance that already occurs in your body. That substance is hyaluronic acid. This is an important substance because it helps your skin hold onto moisture. This helps to add volume to the face as well as keep your skin looking hydrated and healthy.
