Smooth Away Wrinkles Around the Mouth and Nose
As we age, fine lines and wrinkles begin to form and evolve their shape throughout our facial tissue. For some of us, this may be most notable around the eyes and brow line, while others will experience most of their wrinkling lower on their face, closer to their mouths, nose, or chins.
Before undertaking any anti-aging procedure, it is important to first recognize and discuss with your skin care professional the nature of your concerns. From there, he or she will be able to secure the proper treatment plan for smoothing your wrinkles and bringing a younger, tighter, more radiant complexion to your face.
The Rejuvenating, Anti-Aging Benefits of Juvéderm
If you are experiencing moderate to severe wrinkles around the mouth and nose, it may be time to discuss the benefits of Juvedérm with your skin care professional.
Juvedérm is a dermatologic, smooth gel filler that supplies the skin with hyaluronic acid to improve the appearance of facial wrinkling. Unlike fillers that use foreign agents such as animal byproduct or synthetic materials, Juvedérm supplies the skin with a natural agent that occurs throughout our bodies. Hyaluronic acid is not only safe and effective, but by introducing it to compromised facial tissue, it is possible to stimulate the body’s natural healing responses from within.
How Hyaluronic Rejuvenates the Skin
Skin wrinkling and loss of elasticity is caused by several factors, one of the most notable being lack of proper skin moisture.
We tend to think of skin moisture in terms of oily skin and dry skin. Too much moisture leads to blemishes and bacteria buildup, whereas too little moisture results in dry, flaky, and itchy skin. While this way of thinking is not entirely misleading, it does grossly undervalue the importance of healthy levels of skin moisture.
When our skin loses moisture, the proteins responsible for maintaining youthful-looking skin begin to die. In turn, overly dry skin opens our bodies to an array of harm and irritation from the world around us. When our moisture barriers are down, we are much more susceptible to nearly all skin afflictions, including acne, sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and scarring.
Over time, the accumulative effects of this damage begin to harm the structure of our skin. Eventually, this harm results in fine lines and wrinkles. However, by introducing hyaluronic acid (a potent moisture-enhancing vehicle) to the skin, we can not only prevent much of these issues, but also reverse many of the most common signs of aging.
We deserve to have skin that reflects how we feel on the inside. With Juvedérm, we can see dramatic results that make us look younger and feel more confident about our overall appearance.
