Okay ladies, as you know as we get older, our facial skin loses its natural volume. We start to experience different changes which are warning us that our skin is starting to lose natural substances. Unfortunately, like most of the processes within the body, lost matter is hard to compensate for. There is no way for us to restore function of the skin and start producing organic matter once again. When it comes to humans, damage done is usually permanent. Lucky for us though, even if we are not able to simulate our skin, there are ways to alter our appearance and make the necessary corrections that will help restore a youthful look to the face.
Over the past twenty years the cosmetic industry has experienced enormous growth. Many people are willing to do anything in their power to change the way they look, and eliminate wrinkles, folds and all of the different imperfections that are appearing on their face. Because of this, numerous treatments were created to try to provide a good solution for this particular aging problem.
Today, medical fillers are one of the best solutions for the aging skin on our face. Even though the procedure is somewhat simple, the medicines used for it can be included among most advanced medical products of today. Medicines such as Juvederm Volift are all based on an important organic component called hyaluronic acid which is best described as the building block of the skin. It has the power to bind molecules of water and detain them within the dermis. By doing so the skin will remain hydrated and plump, all while it receives the necessary, nutritive matters from water. According to Doctor Medica, this medicine can even stimulate the production of collagen to an extent!
The entire treatment has numerous upsides making it extremely efficient. First and foremost, it is quite a harmless and painless procedure. Modern medicines, including Juvederm Volift, have anesthetics which makes the procedure pretty simple. It takes a doctor only about 20 minutes to inject the medicine into the facial skin. Juvederm Volift can be used for nasolabial folds, vertical lip lines, marionette lines, crow’s feet and even frown lines. Basically, by using dermal fillers, the patient is able to rejuvenate most of the face. However, that is not all. Since the medicines for this procedure are based on highly purified, organic hyaluronic acid extracted from bacteria and animals, the side effects are minimal and it’s very easy for body to absorb it over time. This is precisely why most doctors refer to fillers as a ‘supplemental therapy’. The fillers will not irritate the body or create unwanted chemical reactions, instead they will simply restore the previous level of acid and by doing so, restore the functionality of the skin.
These medicines usually last up to a year within the body, although newer medicines can last even longer, often remaining for up to a few years. This is great because it means that the patient can relax knowing there is no need for additional treatments in the near future.
As mentioned above, the side effects of using Juvederm Volift are minimal. In some cases, skin irritation may occur. Otherwise, the medicine will not interfere with patient’s body’s natural processes or produce some extreme, unwanted reaction.
