Aging skin develops due to the natural loss of collagen and elastin starting around the age of 30. This causes skin laxity which contributes to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Because of this, patients might think that plastic surgery is their only solution. Fortunately, Dr. Thomas Wiener and his team at Thomas Wiener Plastic Surgery encourage patients to take the time to learn about less invasive alternatives to facelifts and brow lifts. He may want to bring up to patients alternative options including that of dermal filler injectables. One of the most popular dermal fillers is that of Juvéderm.
What is Juvéderm?
The dermal filler Juvéderm is one of several fillers available on the market today with dermatologists and plastic surgeons. It is part of a line of hyaluronic acid gels that are injected into the skin to add volume and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. Juvéderm has been used for years and is FDA approved as safe and effective for cosmetic enhancement.
Who is a good candidate for Juvéderm?
Patients with mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles on the face may be appropriate candidates for this and other dermal fillers available at Thomas Wiener Plastic Surgery. Patients who have more severe skin laxity may instead still be considered for cosmetic surgeries. Patients should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations as to what can be achieved with Juvéderm injections.
How long does Juvéderm last?
Juvéderm and other dermal fillers are not permanent treatments. Instead, they often last several months before the body begins to absorb them. Maintaining results requires patients to come into the office every few months for touchup injections.
