While everyone ages differently, eventually, our face starts to change
and as we progressively get older, these changes become more pronounced.
Without intervention from a plastic surgeon, our face will eventually
show signs of wrinkles and youthful volume will be lost.
Surely, genetics play a role in the aging process, but we cannot deny that
lifestyle (e.g. diet, smoking, sun exposure, and excess alcohol consumption)
and environmental factors can either delay or speed up the natural aging process.
If you’ve reached or surpassed your late 30s, you may have noticed
that your skin doesn’t look the same as it did in your 20s. Your
skin may be developing deeper lines and wrinkles, which can be seen around
the mouth and the corner of the eyes, and your eyelids may be droopier
or puffier than before.
When you touch your
face, it mayfeel different than you were younger; it may feel less firm, your skin may seem
thinner and more delicate, your cheeks may be flatter, and your skin may
be sagging more than before – these are all signs of volume loss
– a natural occurrence with aging.
You know that BOTOX can address forehead lines and crow’s feet around
the eyes, but what about volume loss in your face? JUVÉDERM VOLUMA®
XC was developed to do just that.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC was specifically formulated to correct age-related
volume loss in the cheeks to recreate a vibrant, more youthful appearance.
It does this by adding volume under the surface of the skin, which then
lifts and contours the cheeks.
Say ‘Goodbye’ to Smile Lines
If you’re like a lot of women over the age of 35, you might have
developed smile lines, otherwise known as marionette lines or parentheses
lines around your nose and mouth. These lines develop as your skin loses
moisture and elasticity, and if you’re like a lot of women, you’re
not exactly pleased about them.
Unfortunately, no amount of anti-aging serums or creams can reverse the
effects of moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles. While quality
products can certainly help moisturize your skin, they can’t work
miracles. If you are not ready for a surgical lift, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
can add volume so these lines and folds can be smoothed out, delivering long-lasting,
While JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is an injectable gel to correct age-related
volume loss in adults over 21, there are other products in the JUVÉDERM
collection that can plump lips and smooth out facial wrinkles and fine lines.
