As you age your skin’s natural process of exfoliation slows. The reduced rate of skin cell replacement and decreased collagen production can lead to a loss of elasticity, which promotes fine lines and wrinkles.
Over time this process of skin aging can cause your facial features to soften and sag, leaving you looking older than you feel. Many individuals with significantly diminished facial features feel self-conscious about their appearance.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of wrinkles and sagging facial skin, you should consider scheduling a consultation with Dr. Mo Banki and Dr. Frank Paletta at the Artistic Contours Cosmetic Surgery Center. After assessing your facial features and understanding your goals, we can present you with treatment options.
Many patients choose Juvéderm injections to enhance multiple facial features. The procedure involves injecting a small volume of FDA approved hyaluronic acid into the deeper dermal layers to plump them and temporarily restore their youthful appearance.
Juvéderm is a popular option for patients who are interested in plumping their lips and lifting their cheeks while also helping to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
The duration of the dermal filler effect can vary depending on the characteristics of the facial feature as well as the volume injected. Over time your body will safely absorb the hyaluronic acid. At that point most patients return for a follow-up treatment.
