At Skin Shop MedSpa in Houston, Texas, Tiffany Su, MD, and her team understand you want to look your best at every age. To that end, she offers a full roster of surgery-free anti-aging solutions. Among the most popular is Juvéderm®, a game-changer in replenishing lost facial volume.
Why you lose facial volume
With each passing year, the fat cells and support structure under your skin begins to slowly rearrange. Fat cells lose volume and succumb to gravity, which causes them to clump together and shift downward. These once-plump pockets of fat that kept your forehead, cheeks, and areas around your nose and mouth firm now make your skin appear looser and saggier.
Along with the fat-shifting, your skin also loses elasticity as the years pass because your body slowly produces less and less collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid — the foundation for firm, smooth, hydrated skin. Your cheeks and the area around your eyes, nose, and mouth begin to succumb to gravity.
Before you know it, these formerly supple areas of your face are now the biggest sources of frustration — often aging long before you’re ready for these changes to occur. Sagging skin also leads to less clearly defined facial contours, flatter cheeks, and downward drooping corners of your mouth.
Essentially, as time marches on, you go from the “triangle of beauty” — high cheekbones, a well-defined jawline, and smooth skin — to the reverse of this optimal top-down triangle. As volume loss continues, you end up with an inverted triangular-shaped face in which your cheeks flatten, your jawline is less defined, and even your lips lose volume.
What you can do about it, simply and effectively
Here’s the good news: Surgery isn’t your only option for restoring lost facial volume and plumping up the skin. You can get a liquid facelift with Juvéderm®.
This exemplary family of dermal fillers uses hyaluronic acid to replenish lost volume and rejuvenate sagging skin so you look younger, refreshed, and natural. With little to no downtime and almost immediate results after Juvéderm injections, you’ve got nothing to lose and only your true, vivacious appearance to gain.
Juvéderm offers options for areas of volume loss
These hyaluronic acid fillers allow us to tailor your treatment to your individual needs. Lost cheek volume? Juvéderm Voluma® XC can take care of that.
Facial lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth? Juvéderm XC and Juvéderm Vollure™ XC have you covered.
What about lip lines and reduced lip volume? Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Volbella® XC can remedy that, too, so you can enjoy fuller, smoother lips.
With a few simple, in-office dermal filler injections, Juvéderm puts much-needed hyaluronic acid back into the tissue beneath the surface of your skin to plump it up again and restore volume. As volume replenishes your skin, lines and wrinkles also appear smoother and softer, overall. And depending on which Juvéderm injections you receive, results can last up to two years.
Juvéderm is a trusted name in the realm of injectable fillers
In fact, it’s the No. 1 selling dermal filler collection in the world and among the top three most researched, minimally invasive cosmetic treatments. When we inject Juvéderm into your cheeks, lips, or nasolabial folds around your nose and mouth, the smooth gel fills in lines and restores volume in that specific area. Lidocaine in the injectable gel reduces your sensitivity to pain and makes getting dermal fillers a relatively comfortable experience.
It’s really that simple to restore lost facial volume and replenish facial contours. Are you ready to reclaim your youthful appearance? Give us a schedule a consultation by calling our office or booking an appointment online today.
