We can’t control the fact we’re getting older, but that doesn’t mean we can’t control actually looking older. The age number you are may be going up, but the age number you look can continue to go down with the right treatment.
One of these treatments is wrinkle-fighting Juvederm. This dermal filler is a simple solution to fight against the most prevalent sign of aging — facial wrinkles. Estetika Skin and Laser Specialists in Delafield and Milwaukee offer Juvederm to our patients. Call today for your free consultation.
Why Do Wrinkles Happen?
Most wrinkles happen because our skin loses a few key ingredients as we age. One of these ingredients is hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is important because it gives our skin the ability to bend and bounce.
The skin on our face has to endure some of the most manipulation on our entire body. We are always talking and smiling with our mouths and cheeks, and moving our eyebrows as we see and emote. HA is what allows our skin to stretch and return to normal.
Over time, we begin to lose this HA. Our skin still bends, but its ability to come back to normal is lessened. This directly leads to facial wrinkles.
The best way to fight against these wrinkles is to reintroduce HA back into the face.
Fighting Wrinkles with Juvederm
Juvederm is the perfect way to reintroduce this precious HA back to your body in a safe, non-invasive way. Juvederm’s primary ingredient is HA, so you’re able to see results after only one treatment. As a synthetic HA system, Juvederm can absorb more water, provide greater elasticity and last longer.
Some popular places for Juvederm to be used are:

Because Juvederm is a non-invasive and non-surgical option for getting rid of wrinkles, there is no downtime following the appointment and no need for anesthesia. The only thing you’ll need is a bit of topical numbing cream. The cream is also helpful because it reduces the pain of the procedure to a mere pinprick.
The length of time you’ll be in the office varies depending on how many treatments you’re getting, but most appointments last around an hour or so. Once treatment is completed, you’ll be able to go straight home without any long-lasting side effects. Your skin may bruise, swell and feel tender for a few days, but these will subside before too long.
