To help patients minimize the signs of facial aging without surgery, plastic surgeon Gregory T. Mesna utilizes dermal fillers. At his Minneapolis office, Mesna Plastic Surgery, JUVÉDERM® gel filler and BOTOX® Cosmetic, among other injectables, are utilized in facial rejuvenation.
How Does JUVÉDERM® XC Work?
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally within the body. It binds to and absorbs water. Through this process, volume is created in the face. An unfortunate side effect of aging is the loss of volume in the face. One of the causes of lost volume in the face is a lack of hyaluronic acid. The insufficient levels of hyaluronic contribute to the development of folds, lines, and wrinkles in the face. JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel filler restores hyaluronic acid in the skin. The components within JUVÉDERM® XC gel filler help smooth away wrinkles and lines and restore facial volume. The JUVÉDERM® XC treatment process only takes a few minutes to complete. Patients can expect to see results immediately, and the treatment may be repeated as necessary. Results achieved during JUVÉDERM® XC treatment may last up to one year.
Whether you call them smile lines, laugh lines, or nasolabial folds, the creases and lines that begin at the side of the nose and extend down to the corner of the mouth are not funny. These deep creases and lines can leave a person looking and feeling tired, grumpy, and old. Through JUVÉDERM® XC treatment, the appearance of laugh lines can be smoothed and softened.
Marionette lines refer to the lines and wrinkles that form below the corners of the mouth. They can make a person look sad and even angry. No-one wants to walk around day after day looking sad, tired, or angry. JUVÉDERM® XC gel filler may be used to add volume and restore a more youthful, happy looking facial appearance.
Lines around the Lips
Lines and wrinkles found around the lips and above the lips can be caused by a variety of factors. Repetitive motions that occur normally throughout the day may cause wrinkles and lines to form above and around the lips. Smoking, drinking through a straw, and overexposure to sunlight can also cause these types of facial aging to occur. JUVÉDERM® XC gel filler may be used to soften and lessen the appearance of wrinkles above and around the lips.
Enhancing the Cheeks
As a person ages, the cheeks begin to lose volume. Hollow, sunken cheeks can leave a person looking and feeling old. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is designed to add volume to the cheeks. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is made up of hyaluronic acid. In fact, it is the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler to be approved by the FDA for cheek augmentation.
The results achieved with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC are immediate. Instantly following JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC treatment, the cheeks will appear lifted and fuller than they did before treatment. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC offers long-lasting, natural-looking results. The results achieved with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC treatment have been proven to last up to two years.
