We lose a teaspoon of collagen from our faces every year after age 30
There are only a few proven ways to significantly increase collagen in the face to tighten the skin. These methods include laser resurfacing of the face, use of a retinol cream, collagen injections, and hyaluronic acid injections (Juvederm).
Juvederm is designed to replenish what natural aging takes away, for a fresher, rejuvenated look. Replenish what’s been lost over time: sun exposure, hormonal changes and aging can all have an impact on your skin’s appearance. Over time, your skin begins to lose hyaluronic acid and collagen, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and a loss of fullness and elasticity. We can now reverse these signs of aging by correcting the wrinkles and folds and adding volume to sunken skin. Juvéderm is a soft, injectable gel filler that your doctor uses to help replenish and refresh your appearance. It uses hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring sugar found in your body), which combines with the water in your skin to instantly restore lost volume and reduce lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic injections have also been shown to stimulate collagen production. Not only that, Juvéderm works to enhance and define lips, cheeks and jaw line.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA, the newest facial filler available in the Juvederm family of hyaluronic acid fillers. The first of its kind, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA is a hyaluronic acid facial filler specifically made to restore age-related volume loss in the mid-face (the cheeks, cheekbones and around the chin). JUVÉDERM VOLUMA uses hyaluronic acid, a sugar that occurs naturally in your skin, to instantly restore lost facial volume in the cheeks and contour the chin. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA also combines with collagen and elastin to improve skin structure and elasticity, and create a smooth natural look. The results are instant, natural looking and can last up to 18 months.1 Plus there’s no downtime – most people resume normal activities immediately.
