Fine lines and wrinkles come with the territory of aging, but men and women don’t have to just “accept” their development. When patients hit the age of thirty, their bodies begin to naturally lose their stores of collagen and elastin in the facial area. This causes skin laxity and the formation of unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Jessica Belz understands that not everyone is a proper candidate for plastic surgery, but that combating fine lines and wrinkles is important to them. This is where cosmetic injectables such as Juvederm come into play.
Juvederm is one of several cosmetic injectables available at the practice of Dr. Jessica Belz. This particular injectable is a gel that is formulated with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that can be naturally absorbed over time. By injecting this gel directly into the fine lines and wrinkles of the face, immediate improvements are seen. Hyaluronic acid attracts water which adds volume to these areas of concern. This in turn smooths the skin and hides the wrinkles for many months. As the body naturally absorbs the gel, patients will need to return for injections to keep their skin looking great. Most patients will have their injections done twice a year to effectively slow the signs of aging. Juvederm can also be used alongside other cosmetic injectables such as Botox, a neuromodulator that can address wrinkles and folds caused by tension of the muscles. Many patients with mild signs of aging are able to slow the progress using injectables and delay the need for plastic surgery. It is also incredibly affordable for many men and women seeking a solution to their aging skin.
