JUVEDERM & VOLUMA
Lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face can be a source of stress for many men and women who are unhappy with the development of the signs of aging. Loss of volume as well as collagen loss can lead to skin laxity and give the visible impression that one is tired, and lacking vitality. Fortunately, there is a way to combat these imperfections with the use of injectables! ELAN Skin provides patients with a wide selection of injectables to address fine lines and wrinkles, including Juvéderm and Voluma.
Juvéderm is a dermal filler that can add volume directly to lines and wrinkles of the face. Wrinkles on the upper portion of the face respond best to Botox Cosmetic® injections, but those on the lower face can be improved with the use of Juvéderm. This injectable is made with hyaluronic acid, which makes a smooth gel for injection. Our nurses administer injections underneath the upper layers of the skin to restore skin volume in areas such as the nasolabial folds and smile lines. Juvéderm is also excellent at replacing natural volume in the lips to create a more youthful appearance.
There is typically no downtime associated with Juvéderm injections, but some mild after effects can occur. These may include swelling, redness, and discomfort at the injection site. Mild bruising may also occur, but it can be covered with cosmetics until it clears.
