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, natural-looking results!
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.
