Thousand Oaks area dermatologist explains Juvéderm
Fine lines around the mouth and lips, as well as volume loss in the cheeks, can be cause for concern for patients who are struggling with the signs of aging. Using Juvéderm, many patients in the Thousand Oaks area can enjoy effective reduction of these issues in a safe, non-invasive method. Dr. Daphne I. Panagotacos, M.D offers a wide selection of injectables including Juvéderm, Restylane, and Perlane to help patients who are unhappy with the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and volume loss in the face, which can make them look much older than they feel!
Juvéderm is a popular dermal filler used to improve problem areas such as the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, glabellar lines, and crow’s feet. In some cases, Juvéderm can be used for lip augmentation. This requires a very steady hand and administration by a qualified professional who has the experience to provide such treatments. Juvéderm is made from hyaluronic acid, which attracts water naturally to the areas in which it is injected, bringing volume and beauty to treatment areas. It can be used in conjunction with other fillers and injectables such as Botox to provide a full “liquid face lift.”
Juvéderm is safe. It has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic use and has been used by dermatologists for years to address concerns caused by skin laxity on the face. Many patients also use Juvéderm to add volume to areas such as the hands where collagen loss can be a telltale sign of aging.
