As people age, we naturally shed some of our subcutaneous fat. While fat is often stigmatized in the cosmetic industry, the substance is actually critical to defining our features. That applies in particular to facial features, where subcutaneous fat defines the shape of our face, the fullness of our cheeks and lips, and the smoothness of our skin. When people describe the hollowing out of an older person’s face, they are in fact describing the loss of this vital fat. Juvederm can help put the youthful look back on your face.
Through the use of injectable fillers, like Juvederm, the specialists at Prestige Medical Rejuvenation Center can restore the shape and volume of your face, to reduce the appearance of creases, wrinkles, and thinning lips.
What Are Fillers?
Generally speaking, the injectable filler is a cosmetic procedure in which a soft tissue substance (hyaluronic acid) is strategically inserted beneath the skin in order to replace lost natural subcutaneous fat. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the human body. By using injectable fillers, physicians and cosmetic surgeons can combat a whole host of aging features, such as:
- Thinning lips
- Facial creases and wrinkles
- Thinned cheeks
- Shallow contours around the jaws
- Recessed scars
Before beginning the procedure, our experienced team will sit down with you and discuss your desired outcome. During the consultation, our medical team will determine which filler will be most effective for your specific desires.
During the procedure, the filler will be injected beneath your skin.
Filler injections are quick and easy and relatively painless. Because the procedure is low impact, you can resume your normal daily routine immediately. Shortly after the injection, you may experience some swelling, numbness or mild bruising. Those side effects clear up in a matter of days, leaving you with a fuller, more youthful look that can last upwards of six to nine months.
