Probably the most unwelcome cosmetic change associated with aging is the development of wrinkles. Since the face is the most prominent part of the body, facial wrinkles are particularly noticeable to both the observer and the person with the wrinkles.

Most people attribute their wrinkles to old age and simply accept this development as inevitable. Others fight the good fight, looking for treatment options to minimize fine lines and wrinkles on their face.

It seems that many people mistakenly believe that a facelift is the only option when it comes to treating wrinkles. The truth is that there are a number of choices available for the treatment of line and wrinkles and not all of them require surgery.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are a treatment option that does not involve the need for surgery, incisions, or significant downtime. Millions of people have taken advantage of this minimally-invasive technique for minimizing facial wrinkles. The treatment is safe, effective, and long-lasting.

This procedure involves the injection of various substances into the face to treat fine lines and wrinkles, loss of facial volume, and dry skin. After a treatment with dermal fillers, you can expect to see smoother skin that is more radiant and moist.

Juvederm®

Juvederm® treatment has been exploding in popularity as a safe alternative to cosmetic surgery.

The product consists of a gel containing hyaluronic acid, a substance your own body makes to promote moist skin. As you age, less hyaluronic acid is produced, leading to skin that loses volume and becomes thinner and dryer.

Juvederm® corrects this deficiency and is a fast, effective method for the treatment of facial wrinkles, as well as thinning, dry skin. It involves little to no downtime and is a very simple and fast treatment.

Are there any side effects from Juvederm® treatment?

Side effects after a Juvederm® treatment are quite rare and are almost always minor in nature and duration. Some patients experience minor redness, tenderness, or swelling at the injections sites. These can be expected to resolve on their own without the requirement for further treatment.

Can I have multiple treatments?

Yes. You will actually need them, as the Juvederm® gel will be gradually metabolized by your body. Follow ups will ensure that you will continue to be pleased with your results for many months to come. For more information, contact Facial Aesthetic Concepts.
