If you are a Redlands resident who is seeking out a convenient wrinkle treatment for signs of facial aging, you are in luck. Recent years have seen an explosion in the number of minimally-invasive anti-aging treatments that are fast, convenient, and require little to no downtime. Some of these treatments even rival cosmetic surgery in their results.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are wrinkle treatment gels that are delivered via injection to reduce the signs of lines and wrinkles on the face. These days, the most popular ingredient choice is hyaluronic acid, and Juvederm® is one of the most popular brands.
A Closer Look at Juvederm®
Juvederm® is a type of hyaluronic acid dermal filler that helps to correct lines and wrinkles by increasing facial skin volume. Hyaluronic acid is a substance produced by your own body in abundance when you are young. As you age, the hyaluronic acid in your skin begins breaking down, leading to the development of lines and wrinkles that can have you looking older externally than you feel internally.
After the injection, Juvederm® begins drawing moisture into the skin tissue in your face to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to hyaluronic acid, Juvederm® contains lidocaine to ensure patient comfort during the procedure.
What About BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is the most popular non-surgical wrinkle treatment for a reason. The treatment itself is simple and convenient, and the results tend to look very natural. It makes for an excellent dynamic wrinkle treatment because it is injected into the muscles that cause these wrinkles to appear in the first place. The solution makes the muscles relax, which ultimately causes the skin on top of them to relax.
