Aging is an inevitable part of the human life cycle. When aging begins, the body weakens and begins to deteriorate. There are symptoms that are commonly associated with aging. These include graying hair, hair loss, poor eyesight, sun spots, and wrinkles. Over time, the skin loses its natural elasticity. This is especially the case for those who are frequently exposed to the sun. The sun’s rays penetrate the deepest layers of the skin, which affects its elasticity. Hence, frequent sun exposure breaks down the collagen in the skin and causes premature aging.

Aging skin has a lot of wrinkles. These wrinkles may either be few but deep-seated, or multiple but shallow. It’s also possible to have a combination of these kinds of wrinkles. Either way, having wrinkles can make you feel self-conscious. It can have a negative impact on your self-image and confidence.

If you want to look your best, ask our dentist about JUVÉDERM® treatment. JUVÉDERM is a smooth gel that is made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in your body. By carefully injecting JUVÉDERM underneath the skin, your skin can be completely rejuvenated, ultimately adding volume and reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds.

JUVÉDERM offers patients a safe and effective treatment with little to no down-time. JUVÉDERM is less invasive than other fillers and provides patients with dramatic improvement almost immediately following treatment. Results can last up to six months.
