How Juvéderm helps men and women in the Rockville area address the signs of aging
Our bodies are intricate systems that naturally produce a number of substances necessary for health and vitality. One such substance is hyaluronic acid, which aids in the lubrication of joints and eyes. Hyaluronic acid also keeps our skin moist, firm, and supple.
Contained in vitamin C, hyaluronic acid is partially responsible for disabling free radicals that can cause our skin cells to atrophy. It also facilitates the healing of wounds by stimulating the production of collagen in the skin.
As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid that is naturally produced in our body plummets. The noticeable effects of this decrease are wrinkles and “crepey” skin on the hands, neck, and face and a significant loss in volume.
As a part of the anti-aging family of products available in dermatology, hyaluronic acid is at the base of numerous dermal fillers, including Juvéderm. Dr. Ron Prussick and members of his staff have extensive experience using this product, and they have helped many patients from the Rockville area experience the rejuvenation of their appearance by restoring lost volume in the cheeks, eyes, and other areas.
An FDA-cleared hyaluronic acid filler, Juvéderm has a pure gel consistency and “cross linked” technology, making it ideal in a great many applications. What cross-linking does is allow the hyaluronic acid solution to permeate the connective tissues of the skin for the smoothest results possible. The characteristics of this filler also extend its effectiveness for long lasting results. Within the skin, hyaluronic acid absorbs hundreds of times its weight in water, restoring volume and youthful firmness where it has been lost.
Juvéderm is safe for all skin types and colors and is comfortably delivered via gentle technique and an infusion of lidocaine, a numbing agent, within the solution itself. This filler may be used on the face and hands for the restoration of a more youthful appearance, boosting fibroblast cells within the skin. Compatible with other products and services, Juvéderm may be used with Botox or even other fillers, such as Juvéderm Voluma™, for the ultimate rejuvenating effect.
