Juvederm Dermal Fillers – Anti-Aging Therapy

By: Dr. Craig Crippen

Here’s hoping that my last blog piqued your interest about Juvéderm Dermal Fillers. A trusted solution to the appearance of crow’s feet and other facial wrinkles, Juvéderm Fillers involve the injection of a naturally occurring sugar-based solution that helps for skin to regain its natural, full and smooth look.

What’s this sugar-based solution, you ask? It’s known as Hyaluronic acid or HA, for short. This is a naturally occurring sugar that absorbs small amounts of water in the body. The older people get, the harder it is to produce HA. So Juvéderm Dermal Fillers replace the lost HA to help for your face’s skin to revitalize itself.

There are different types of  Juvéderm Dermal Fillers, by the way. For example, there is Juvéderm Voluma that is used for the treatment of facial volume loss. You also have

Juvéderm Soft Lifts, which combine Juvéderm and BOTOX Cosmetic treatments to help eliminate wrinkles and other facial lines.

Juvéderm doesn’t stop there either! It’s also been used successfully in the treatment of ear lobe creases, saggy skin and even thin lips. I have a friend or two who would be very happy to hear that! As always, it’s imperative that you consult a physician or skin care specialist for further information, and to see whether Juvéderm Dermal Fillers are right for you.

But even those who receive Juvéderm are expected to do what it takes to keep their skin looking young and healthy. In my last blog, I spoke of an article from HubPages.com that listed a number of ways that we can all avoid getting wrinkles on our faces prematurely.

Don’t Smoke! This tip has to go right up there with waking up in the morning as the most obvious task needed to stay alive. In all seriousness, there are absolutely no health benefits to smoking. This fact should be clear as day to just about everyone in this day and age. But it bears repeating that if you don’t want wrinkles, you don’t want cigarettes.

As Ricketts points out, smoking releases harmful chemicals into your body. These chemicals constrict your blood vessels preventing the body’s transport of oxygen and its ability to rid itself of waste. Ew! Not to mention, the sucking action of smoking is not unlike squinting your eyes. This very action creates wrinkles around the area of the lips. Simply put, quit it!

Eat Healthy and Drink Lots of Water. You would assume that these tips are no-brainers, but you’d be surprised at how many people neglect them! If you don’t want to be a victim of the early onset of wrinkles, then you need to work for it. This is true whether you receive Juvéderm fillers or not!
