Over time, the collagen fibers in our skin, which give us the firmness and volume of youth, are slower to produce and repair. We lose facial volume which results in deepening lines and unwanted hollows. Dr. Zena Gabriel at ZENA Medical can help restore lost volume and return youthful fullness with Juvederm® without the “filler look.”
One of the main ingredients in Juvederm® fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA), which is naturally produced by the body to hydrate and nourish the skin. The older we get, the fewer HA molecules and collagen fibers we produce, so our skin becomes thinner and more easily affected by gravity. In some cases, fillers can bring volume to facial contours that were never there, plumping thin lips, creating fuller cheekbones, or contouring the jawline.
The Juvederm® family of fillers combats this on two fronts. First, the gel is precision-engineered by cross-linking varying sized HA molecules to create different consistencies and thicknesses. It provides immediate lift and volume to the treatment area to reduce wrinkles and restore volume. Second, HA is proven to boost collagen fiber production, so as the gel is metabolized over months, it’s replaced with your natural support structure to keep you looking younger for longer.
At ZENA Medical, we offer 5 different Juvederm® fillers, each with a unique consistency to address the varied concerns age brings:
The different Juvederm® formulations offer different periods of longevity. Some patients who metabolize the gel faster have periodic touch-ups to prolong results and maintain a steady amount of volume in their features.
The beauty in dermal fillers is the immediate results. The gel’s volume gives shape and contour to your treatment areas, and over time, your collagen network grows stronger. Our aim at ZENA Medical is to give you beautiful, youthful contours to diminish lines, restore volume, and nourish your skin without an over-filled appearance. We emphasize your naturally beautiful features so you still look like you without the signs of age.
