Even though the changes you start to see as you age are normal, they may make you feel anxious about your appearance. At Le Reve Skincare & Laser Center in Fort Worth, TX, we can help. This is everything you need to know about our Juvederm treatments.
What Is the Best Age for Getting Juvederm?
Everyone starts to notice changes in the way their skin looks and feels as they get older. But if you’re not happy with these changes, you can get Juvederm injections to rejuvenate your appearance and help you look and feel younger.
This injectable is approved by the FDA for anyone over the age of 21, and there is no wrong age to get treatment at. However, most people start to notice their skin wrinkling around their late twenties and early thirties, making this a fantastic time to start getting your treatment.
Why Is My Skin Wrinkling and Sagging?
So why is your skin starting to change so much in the first place? This is the result of the natural loss of chemicals in your skin like collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid that occurs as you get older.
When you’re young, you have high levels of these chemicals, which is why your face looks fuller and your skin appears smoother. But the more you lose these chemicals, the more your skin’s integrity is weakened which is why you start to see issues like a thinning of your face as well as wrinkling.
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
One of the important chemicals you’ll find in your skin is hyaluronic acid, a sugar that can be found in other areas of your body as well. Its main job is to provide lubrication and hydration to your body.
In your skin, it attracts moisture molecules to both keep your skin moisturized and help it maintain its fullness. When you lose levels of this chemical, this results in volume loss which can age your appearance.
What Is Collagen?
This is a protein found in various parts of your body. It helps your skin maintain its structural integrity as well as its elasticity. When you have lots of collagen present in your skin, this helps it smooth out effectively when the muscles beneath are relaxed.
But when you lose collagen, your skin becomes less able to smooth out. Repeated facial movements cause wrinkling to appear. Collagen loss combined with a loss of overall volume in your face can also cause your skin to sag.
What Does Juvederm Do?
When this injectable filler is applied to your face, it provides more volume to the areas where it’s injected. This lifts your sagging skin while also helping your face appear fuller and more youthful.
An added benefit of this injectable is that it stimulates your skin’s collagen production. This will encourage your skin to remain as flexible as it was in your youth and prevent further wrinkling and sagging.
What Happens If I Get Treatment?
Before Your Appointment
We’ll have a consultation with you before you receive your treatment. This is important because it gives us the chance to go over what your specific goals are as well as your medical history to ensure this is the safest option for your skin.
We’ll also give you instructions on how you can properly prepare for your treatment. Don’t worry, preparing for your appointment is very easy. There are just a few things you’ll have to avoid to ensure treatment is as effective as it can be. This includes tobacco, alcohol, and certain supplements and medication.
The entire treatment process is fast, easy, and pain-free. When you come to our clinic, don’t be afraid to bring up any questions or concerns you may have at any point. We will be more than happy to address them and put you at ease. Before applying the injections, we’ll clean the areas where you’ll be receiving them.
When the needle is applied, you’ll feel a slight pinching sensation. We’ll inject small amounts at a time into your skin in strategic spots. This allows us to ensure that your treatment is as accurate as possible and that you get the results you’re looking for. Once your treatment is done, you can leave the clinic.
After Your Appointment
You can get back to your regular, busy life as soon as your treatment is done. This makes it one of the most convenient cosmetic treatments available. Unlike surgical procedures which will require some significant downtime, there is virtually no downtime associated with this treatment.
There will only be a few things to remember as your skin heals around the injection sites. For instance, since your skin is going to be more sensitive than it normally is, you’ll have to stay away from direct sunlight as well as strenuous physical activity that could trigger a lot of sweating.
The Benefits of Getting Juvederm
Results Will Look Natural
If you’re worried that your cosmetic treatment is going to make your face look fake, you don’t need to be concerned when you get injections of this product. We’ll discuss your goals beforehand and ensure that your treatment plan is customized to fit these goals.
Regardless of your goals, trust that no matter how dramatic or subtle you want the changes in your face to be, we’ll ensure that your treatment is exactly what you want it to be with natural-looking results.
Results Are Easily Reversible
Most people are happy with their results after they receive this treatment. However, in some cases, patients may find that they prefer the way they looked before they got their treatment. Some treatments can take a long time to fade, and with options like surgical procedures, you’ll simply need to live with the results.
But this treatment can easily be reversed by injecting the enzyme hyaluronidase into your skin. This dissolves the hyaluronic acid and gets you looking the way you did before.
Results Appear Quickly
If you’re feeling self-conscious about your appearance, then it makes sense that you’d look for something that’s going to act quickly. Some injectables and other cosmetic treatments, however, can take a long time to show the results you want.
That’s not the case with this option. As soon as your appointment is done, you’ll notice a change in your overall appearance. Full results will be obvious after about a week or two.
Results Last a Long Time
If you want to make sure that you’re getting long-lasting results, you’ll want to make sure you consider this treatment option. While some injectables last only a couple of months, this one can last anywhere from 1 to 2 years.
The exact amount of time that your results will last depends on a few different factors. The exact formula you get as well as where you receive the injections will affect how long the results last. This is also true for how well you care for your skin after treatment.
You’ll Rejuvenate Your Appearance
Getting older can make you feel extremely self-conscious about the way you look. The more you notice issues like wrinkles around your eyes, nose, and mouth or sagging of your skin along your jawline, the more you may start to feel uncomfortable with the way you look.
But you deserve to feel confident in your appearance. If you’re ready to look and feel your best again, our team is ready to provide you with this treatment so you can rejuvenate your appearance and feel happy and comfortable in your skin.
Anyone Is a Candidate
Because this Juvederm treatment’s main ingredient is a chemical that’s naturally already present in various places in your body, it’s safe for almost anyone to get. However, if you have skin conditions around the areas where you want treatment or you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should avoid this treatment for now.
On the other hand, if you are looking for an effective, safe, and non-invasive treatment that will help you look and feel younger, then you could be a perfect candidate to get injections of this filler.
