As an individual ages, their healthy and young-appearing skin loses the naturally hydrating abundance of hyaluronic acid as well as suffering the effects of sun exposure and other aging processes including loss of muscle tone.
The natural aging process can create a tired-appearing and wrinkled look around your eyes or under your eyes with hollows. The eyelids, upper and/or lower, are no longer tight and droopiness of the upper eyelid frequently affects their line of vision. The jowls start to droop and the marionette lines and nasolabial folds can become more prominent.
It is possible to restore a refreshed and rejuvenated facial appearance with Juvederm XC. This agent is safe, painless and easy to apply, is long lasting and makes dramatic improvement without surgery to these conditions and areas of your face.
Hyaluronic acid, a natural product of the body, keeps skin soft, supple and moist. However, over the years, exposure to the sun and other related age factors will decrease the once abundance of hyaluronic acid to a minimum, resulting in the various signs of aging including loss of volume and loss of well-defined structure with muscle laxity.
Juvederm XC effectively replaces the loss of hyaluronic acid restoring suppleness and volume, smoothing wrinkles and tightening skin laxity.
Your skin consists of two layers called the epidermis (the outer layer) providing protection against the environment and the dermis (the innermost layer) providing a support network.
Your skin’s original natural hyaluronic acid is often referred to as your body’s internal moisturizer. When this is reduced, unfortunately, results include the appearance of creases, lines and nasolabial folds.
Injectable Juvederm XC gel restores the loss of hyaluronic acid alleviating your facial skin concerns and giving you a refreshed, more youthful look.
Juvederm XC is FDA approved, lasts up to one year and can be safely and easily repeated.
