Wrinkle Removal with JUVEDERM | St Louis Cosmetic Surgery and Facial Fillers
There are often times we start looking at pictures of ourselves from the past, and we are bothered by the fact that we are seeing the inevitable signs of aging. We see an increase in lines around our nose and mouth, which make us look older than we feel.
If you are seeing an increase in wrinkles around the nose and mouth and are looking for a facial filler with instant and long lasting results, JUVEDERM St. Louis – wrinkle removal and Facial Filler – is a great option.
As we age, the Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in our bodies decreases and wrinkles may increase. HA is a naturally occurring molecule found throughout the body. The primary function of HA is to support and hydrate the skin, which creates volume in the face. Imagine for a moment that your skin is like a raisin. Right now it might be wrinkled and a bit dry looking. With JUVÉDERM®, your skin can be restored to the smooth look of that younger, youthful look…much like the way the grape looked before it became that raisin! Trust us; with this treatment, you will get rid of wrinkles and smooth out your face faster than ever before!
The Juvederm St Louis Cosmetic Surgery procedure is an injectable solution that restores the HA in your skin. After one brief treatment with this smooth gel filler, most patients instantly notice significant improvement and smoothing around the treatment area. The benefits of a single treatment can last up to a year.
It also produces smooth and natural-looking results. It’s the only HA filler approved by the FDA. The actual facial fillers treatment takes approximately 15 minutes. A fine needle is used to inject the gel into the treatment area. JUVÉDERM® is formulated with lidocaine, which numbs the treatment area to minimize any discomfort during treatment.
JUVÉDERM® is ideal for the following problem areas:
- Smile lines – The vertical lines running from nose to mouth.
- Marionette lines – The vertical lines or folds that run from mouth down towards the jaw.
- Vertical lip lines – The lines directly above the lip that can occur from ordinary muscle movement, excessive smoking or exposure to sun
One of the benefits of using an HA filler is that it’s reversible, if for some reason you aren’t satisfied with the results.
JUVEDERM ® has also been proven safe and effective for persons of color. Studies with JUVEDERM St Louis procedures ® showed no increased risk of hyperpigmentation or hypertrophic scarring in patients of color.
