None of us like to look in the mirror and see wrinkles where our smooth, young-looking skin used to be, but moderate to severe wrinkles can be even more difficult to cope with. At Advanced Anti-Aging and Weight Loss in Evansville, Indiana, we want to help you not only restore the health of your skin but also the health of your entire self. Contact us today to ask about our JUVÉDERM® injections – a painless way to treat moderate to severe wrinkles in just one visit.
Advanced Anti-Aging and Weight Loss takes a functional, holistic approach to skin care. We understand that your skin is an organ, and the way it is functioning directly affects its health and treatment prospects. Our experienced medical staff will assess the way your skin is reacting, such as measuring the levels of your collagen and hormone production. We will then establish how to treat you as a unique individual.
What is JUVÉDERM®?
Non-surgical with long-lasting effects, JUVÉDERM® is an injectable dermal gel that contains hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is found and made naturally in your body, and bonds easily with water under the skin, causing an increase in volume to the treated area and smoothing out wrinkles for a long period of time.
What Does JUVÉDERM® Treat?
JUVÉDERM® treats two classes of wrinkles – static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles occur when your muscles contract while making a facial expression, such as a smile or a frown. Static wrinkles are caused by skin losing its natural collagen and elastin over time, causing a loss in skin shape. JUVÉDERM® injections have been shown to effectively treat:
- Smile lines
- Facial corner lines
- Marionette lines
- Lip lines
As with all of our injection treatments, the JUVÉDERM® procedure is non-invasive with minor discomfort. It is done by using a fine needle to inject the smooth gel directly into the tissue of the treated areas.
How Long Does it Last?
Not only will you look great and feel better after your JUVÉDERM® injection, but you can also enjoy the full benefits of your revitalized skin for nine months to one year after a single visit.
What are the Possible Side Effects of JUVÉDERM®?
The adverse effects of JUVÉDERM® injections are the same as most injectable fillers. They include bruising, swelling and itchiness of the injection site, which quickly heal within the first week of recovery.
Our skilled medical staff will guide and assist you throughout your treatment and recovery process. Contact Advanced Anti-Aging and Weight Loss today to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure and to start the process.
