The aging process can be really tough on the skin of Houston residents. As your body’s outer barrier, your skin is at the mercy of elements like sunlight, cold, and wind. Other factors like pollutants and harsh chemicals can take a toll on your skin and leave you looking older than your actual age. Similar to the way your skin starts to wrinkle on the face, your lips will eventually begin to show the signs of aging also. If you once had luscious, full lips that have grown thinner, or you were never happy with the appearance of your lips in the first place, you have more options available than ever before to make a correction. One of the best options out there is Juvederm®.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a dermal filler. It is an injectable substance that was approved by the FDA for the correction of certain issues. The product is able to increase lip volume, enhance lip symmetry, and minimize the visible signs of aging around your mouth.
How Does Juvederm® Work?
Juvederm® contains hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar produced by your own body in abundance when you were young. As you grow older, your levels of hyaluronic acid begin to decline precipitously, leading to the development of thinner skin that forms lines and wrinkles on and around your lips.
Replacing the hyaluronic acid that your lips have lost due to environmental impacts or the aging process is important because this substance has an incredible ability to retain moisture and hold it within your skin and lips. Juvederm® treatment consists of an injection of a gel containing hyaluronic acid to restore your pouty lips to their full grandeur.
Juvederm® contains a substance called lidocaine. Commonly used in many medical settings, lidocaine has the ability to reduce discomfort and ensure your comfort level during your treatment at our office in Houston.
