From the starlets of the silver screen to your neighbor next door, many people are obtaining the youthful look of their dreams courtesy of dermal fillers.
Whether you want to erase those dreaded under-eye circles you’ve developed from too many nights burning the midnight oil, or you’re just tired of laughing off those unwanted smile lines, there’s a solution – and it’s simpler than you may have realized.
Facial fillers work wonders, offering a variety of solutions for aesthetic adjustments. In fact, one million men and women turn to this technique annually to obtain a more youthful, refreshed appearance, according to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.
Unlike wrinkle relaxers like Botox, dermal fillers have the unique ability to plump and enhance certain areas of the face.
Which Dermal Filler Should You Choose?
Allergan, the maker of Juvéderm, developed an extensive line of products to cater to any and all of your cosmetic enhancement needs. Determining which variety of Juvéderm is best suited to you will be achieved with the help of a reputable nurse practitioner or cosmetic specialist.
Smile lines can be symbols of the good memories or times that are meant to be treasured – but you don’t need to have them on your face to keep them in your memory. Ask your specialist about Juvederm XC, a smooth gel filler that instantly eradicates those pesky “parentheses” with just one treatment. Best of all, the results can last up to a full year. Made with lidocaine for numbing and improved comfort, and Hylacross™ technology for a smooth, even aesthetic, it’s your best defense for restoring those natural facial contours of the mouth to their youthful appearance.
Have you spent countless dollars on your quest for fuller, plumper looking lips? The search ends with Juvederm Volbella®, the most recent addition to the Juvederm collection. Think of it as kryptonite for your vertical lip lines, leaving behind subtle lip fullness, while softening the appearance of aging fine lines. A credit to its groundbreaking nature, the dermal filler was awarded the 2017 Allure® Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award. According to the makers of Juvederm, you can expect your results to last about a year. To be more specific, 80 percent of patients expressed satisfaction with their lips one year after treatment.
High cheekbones are synonymous with youth – but not all of us are naturally blessed with them. Invasive surgeries and facelifts are one option; however, they require long recuperation periods and a certain threshold for pain. This doesn’t mean you have to turn a cheek to your aesthetic goals. Juvederm Voluma® XC is your answer for restoring those covetable facial contours. The first (and only) FDA approved filler for adding cheek volume, it imparts a subtle lift that can take five years off of your appearance. If you’re over the age of 21 and looking for long-lasting volume, this is the treatment for you. Your results will last up to two years, meaning you’ll spend less time in the chair.
If you’re less than satisfied with your appearance, it’s time to show face – that is, make a trip to a medispa of your choosing. A subset of SC Internal Medicine Associates & Rehabilitation led by owner/managing partner Amy Powers (a certified aesthetic consultant), Rejuvenations Medical Spa is Columbia’s premier medical spa offering the most cutting-edge techniques.
