The signs of aging can be troublesome, especially for patients who feel younger than they appear. Turning back the hands of time is easy with dermal fillers and other injectables available through local dermatologists.
Injectables such as Juvéderm are gaining in popularity as patients begin to see the results that it can provide. Lines, wrinkles, and folds can be temporarily reduced with dermal fillers. Juvéderm is used for a variety of treatment areas. At The New York City Aesthetic Consultants, our dermatologists offer several dermal fillers, and find that each one benefits different types of wrinkles and folds on various areas of the face.
Patients seeking improvement in the appearance of their face can use Juvéderm injections. Benefits from this dermal filler include:
- Shaping the lips and nose
- Symmetry of the face
- Reduced lines on the forehead
- Reduced marionette lines
- Reduced “Smoker’s Lines”
- Reduced Nasolabial folds
- Increased definition of the cheek
- Diminished circles and tear troughs under the eyes
Juvéderm fillers last approximately nine to twelve months in most cases. Patients can visit Dr. Shelton regularly for injections to maintain the results and slow the aging process. The treatments are done in-office at his state-of-the-art facility in approximately 15 minutes, and they require no downtime. Patients can return to their normal routines immediately after their visit and see immediate results. The injections are comfortable, thanks to a topical anesthetic cream that is applied to the face to numb the areas where injections are administered. Side effects are uncommon but can include bruising or swelling, which resolve within a few days.
Others might notice that a patient who has received Juvéderm injections looks younger, appears more radiant, and seems well rested and relaxed. Many are unaware that a patient has had injections but notice the improvement in the individual’s appearance and self-esteem!
