What is your skin losing as you age? (Part 2)

Naturally found in skin, hyaluronic acid (HA) acts as the body’s natural hydrator and keeps skin plump, firm and youthful. Between the ages of 40 to 50, skin loses nearly 50% of the hyaluronic acid it had at the age of 20. During the aging process, hyaluronic acid production decreases, leaving skin dry, dull and wrinkled. The answer? Replacing HA in your body through facial injections and topical serums.

WRINKLES AND LINES Skin changes are a visible sign of aging. Your skin loses elasticity and moisture over time. Read more about hydration versus moisture here. This normal aging process, plus genetics and environmental factors, can cause different facial lines to form, including moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. There are several types of lines that can form around your nose and mouth. These include parentheses, vertical lip, corner, and marionette lines. As you age, these lines may become more noticeable.

JUVÉDERM® XC is the #1 selling collection of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers in the US. Each product in the collection of fillers adds volume to a different area of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines or plump the lips. JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel smooths away these moderate to severe wrinkles-without surgery-and lasts up to 1-2 years with optimal treatment. While serums and creams can help moisturize the skin’s surface, JUVÉDERM® XC goes beneath the surface to reduce the appearance of deep lines and folds, and gives you the natural-looking, long-lasing results you want.

NEW JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC: Don’t let your lines define you. JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC is the first and only FDA approved filler to treat the fine lines above the lips (perioral rhytids) and increase lip fullness for up to 1 year with optimal treatment. We’ve also been seeing amazing results in the down-turned corners of the mouth (oral commissures) using JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC which is formulated with VYCROSS®, a proprietary filler technology from Allergan, which yields smooth products that have been engineered to address these specific patient concerns and last up to a year. VYCROSS® technology was first created for use in JUVÉDERM® Voluma® XC and gives both products a smooth gel with lasting results.

JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC: Are your cheeks revealing your age? Lines and wrinkles aren’t the only signs of aging. As we age, our cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by loss of fullness, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC is designed to add just enough volume to gently lift and contour the cheek area. You will see immediate change in the lines around the nose to the mouth and the mouth to the chin just by lifting the skin with JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC and thereby “putting things back where they used to be when you were younger”. On average, 90% of patients feel they look 5 years younger after just one treatment with JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC. JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC is the #1 selling filler in the U.S.

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC: Give your lips another reason to smile! Whether you’ve noticed your lips thinning over time, or simply want fuller lips, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC can give you natural-looking results that last. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is perfect for any subtle filling and plumping that you might need. If you simply want a subtle change to your lips, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is right for you! When patients say, “I don’t want anyone to know I’ve done something”, we choose JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC for natural looking results that last.

JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC: Parentheses have a place but not on your face! JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds making it perfect for the lines from the nose to the mouth (nasofolds) and the mouth to the chin (marionette lines). JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC has amazing plumping and restores lost volume to the deeper wrinkles and folds lasting beyond 1 year after treatment.
