Can Dermal Fillers Make Me Look Younger?
Embracing our age is a beautiful thing. With every passing year, we get to celebrate the milestones and memories we’ve experienced to get to this incredible point in our lives. Accepting the wrinkles and fine lines those milestones left behind on our faces can be a little harder to tolerate.
With dermal filler treatments from Ooh La La Spa, Anti-Aging and Wellness in Glen Carbon, Ill., you can begin to erase years from your face, leaving you with skin that is firmer, smoother and softer. Best of all, you get to enjoy the best of worlds – a natural-looking, youthful appearance and the knowledge that can only come from living a life well lived.
The First Signs of Aging We Face
Hyaluronic acid (HA) molecules in our body keep our tissue and skin well lubricated by binding elastin and collagen together. As we age, HA hydration levels begin to decline, which is why we notice our joints feeling stiffer and our skin appearing looser. Free radicals caused by smoking or UV rays can quickly speed up this deterioration over the years.
Signs of aging on the face due to HA loss include:
- Parentheses lines around your nose and mouth
- Loss of volume in your lips
- Vertical lines around your lips
- Sagging skin in your cheek area
- Facial wrinkles and folds
How Dermal Fillers Rejuvenate Your Skin
FDA-approved Juvéderm fillers are your best option to remedy age-related volume loss to a decline in HA. During your non-surgical procedure, Dr. Jacobs will inject HA-rich gel into problem areas to rehydrate and plump the skin. Because HA is produced naturally by the body, Juvéderm refreshes your appearance without the “has she had work done?” side effect.
Juvéderm offers a collection of HA dermal fillers with scientifically-backed formulations that address three of the most apparent signs of early aging. In addition to softening the smile lines, or parentheses lines, around your mouth, Juvéderm adds fullness to thinning lips and sculpts cheek tissue that has flattened and sagged. After just one 15-60-minute session, skin is suppler and better hydrated, and you can feel more confident as you face the world.
In most cases, patients see more youthful results immediately after treatment. And those results last on average 12-18 months before a repeat procedure is needed.
Choosing the Best Dermal Filler Clinic in the Edwardsville Area
To get natural-looking outcomes instead of the over-plumped appearance of many well-known celebrities, it’s important to select an experienced practitioner who truly understands facial anatomy and the art of subtlety.
