Looking younger can be easy with Juvéderm Ultra in McKinney

01/14/15 | by admin | Categories: Cosmetic Dermatology

Just because you’re getting a little older, doesn’t mean that you have to look it! Loss in facial volume is a natural part of the aging process. Years spent outside in the sunlight enjoying life combined with the effects of gravity and your genetics can all contribute to a loss of skin elasticity. Lucky for you, there’s a quick, effective, non-surgical way to replace that lost volume and turn back the hands of time. Juvéderm Ultra is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can make you look and feel younger.

 

Juvéderm Ultra is a gel that is injected into desired areas of the face to fill in the lost volume. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body and is used to deliver moisture and nutrients to the skin. Hyaluronic acid helps keep skin looking soft, supple, and healthy. When the body naturally begins losing hyaluronic acid, you will begin noticing some of the most common sings of aging. Juvéderm can reverse the appearance of the following:

 

  • Loss in volume
  • Wrinkles and lines around the bottom half of the face
  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Tear troughs (dark circles and grooves under eye)

 

Additionally, Juvéderm Ultra can be used to help plump thin lips.

 

Before embarking on Juvéderm Ultra treatments, you will want to schedule a consultation with Dr. Selkin, your McKinney area dermatologist. He will meet with you to discuss your concerns and will determine if Juvéderm Ultra is the best method to address them.

 

One of the most exciting aspects of Juvéderm treatments is immediate results. You will be able to see a marked change in your appearance before you leave the office! Because there is no downtime with Juvéderm, you are free to move on with normal daily activities. Some bruising, redness or discomfort near the injection sites is normal, and will disappear within a few days. All Juvéderm patients should be careful to limit sun exposure and wear sunscreen when outside. 

 

Results from Juvéderm can last many patients for up to a year. To maintain your new look, you should schedule a follow-up appointment. If you are ready to find out how easy it is to look younger, call Dr. Selkin and his team today for a risk-free consultation.
