Juvéderm is an ultra-smooth, gel based dermal filler from the makers of Botox. Dermal fillers are becoming an increasingly popular option for reducing wrinkles
, and improving volume, with a convenient and comfortable procedure. Juvéderm is the only HA (Hyaluronic Acid) based dermal filler approved by the FDA for correcting facial wrinkles and folds, with results lasting up to one year. Only one or two touchup appointments, at the most, are needed to achieve optimal, long lasting results.
Because hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally occurring in human skin, Juvéderm is biocompatible, and non-allergenic. It works by replacing volume, which skin naturally loses as we age. With time, the layer of fat under your skin becomes thinner, as does the epidermis. The levels of naturally occurring proteins and hyaluronic acid decrease, and the connective tissue begins breaking down. Without youthful volume, skin begins sagging, and fine lines, wrinkles, and folds develop.
Why Juvéderm is different
There are several dermal fillers available, including Radiesse
, Restylane, and Perlane
. Although there are many similarities between these products, each has unique benefits. Your doctor can determine which option is best for your situation, to achieve the results you desire. The special formulation of Juvéderm utilizes cross-linked HA. In its natural state HA is a liquid; cross-linking transforms it into a thick, yet silky smooth, gel. Other HA based dermal fillers are granular in consistency.
Babies have beautifully rounded facial contours with plumpness in all the right places like the apex, apple, and hollow of the cheek. As we age we naturally lose volume in these areas, leading to features that are less youthful – angular or flattened. Dr. Daphne Panagotacos is pleased to bring a safe, effective solution to women and men in the Westlake Village area. It’s called Voluma XC, and it is made by Juvederm, one of the most trusted names in aesthetic medicine.
Voluma is a soft tissue filler, the first and only approved by the FDA specifically to correct volume loss in the mid-face. This smooth hyaluronic acid based filler is injected into precise points on the face to instantly give subtle lift and volume. It’s the non-surgical way to turn back the clock, with results that last up to two years.
The XC means extra comfort! Voluma is infused with lidocaine for comfortable treatment. Call 805-379- 3376 to make Voluma part of your rejuvenation plan.
