Every line on our face has a story from our past. That does not mean we have to keep the lines to remember the stories! At Paradise Med Spas of Texas in Lubbock, TX, we have found solutions to make those lines vanish leaving you with younger-looking skin. One of the many solutions is with the use of Juvederm.
How Do I Get Rid of Lines on My Face? 6 Places to Use Juvederm
1. Nasolabial Fold or “Smile Lines”
The nasolabial fold, or the lines from the nose to the mouth, are most noticeable when a person smiles. That’s why these lines are commonly referred to as “laugh lines” or “smile lines.” They usually deepen over time due to repetitive smiling, but not everyone wants that displayed across their face.
Our skin continues to thin as we age, and along with that comes sagging. This makes the nasolabial fold much more noticeable. As these lines deepen, other areas of the face are impacted as well, including the upper lip and cheeks.
2. Melomental Fold or “Marionette Lines”
The melomental fold refers to the lines that run from the mouth to the chin. These are often referred to as “marionette lines.” They run straight down from the corners of the mouth, giving an appearance similar to the mouths of marionette puppets.
These deep wrinkles can cause people to look visibly upset and appear to be constantly frowning. As time goes by, our sagging skin is taken over by gravity and the melomental fold deepens.
3. Vertical Upper Lip Lines or “Smoker’s Lines”
This dermal filler can be used to treat the vertical lines found above the upper lip, also commonly referred to as “smoker’s lines.” Lip lines begin to appear just above the upper lip as thin, fine lines. As time goes on, they become more apparent and turn into deep lines. The vertical upper lip lines make it nearly impossible for lipstick wearers to apply without issue.
Many people who have these lines experience issues with their lipstick bleeding. This means the lipstick color spreads from your lips and into the lines causing a messy look. If you are finding yourself struggling with bleeding lipstick, this treatment might help you eliminate this problem from your life!
4. Frown Lines or Furrowed Brow
Frown lines, or furrowed brow, occur between the eyebrows and in lines across the forehead. This gives a person the appearance of being unhappy. These lines appear over time as the skin in this area thins and the muscle underneath is exposed.
Frown lines develop from the repeated action of frowning – much like smile lines. Sun damage can also play a role in the depth of these lines and how visible they appear on the skin. Since we are unable to time travel and yell at the younger versions of ourselves to stop frowning, Juvederm is here to help turn back the clock for our skin.
5. Sunken Cheeks
Sunken or hallowed cheeks can happen to any person regardless of their age. Having treatment on these areas typically leads to the contouring of the face and adds volume to the cheeks.
6. Thin Lips
Thin lips are one of the most common uses for this particular treatment. When applied to the lips, Juvederm can plump them up, resulting in a fuller appearance.
What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a specialized dermal filler approved by the FDA that is used to correct the unwanted signs of aging within the skin. This dermal filler is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that is naturally found in the body.
Hyaluronic acid is responsible for skin elasticity and hydration. As we get older, these levels decrease and our skin begins to lose its volume. Juvederm can help restore those nutrients to the skin.
How Does It Work?
This dermal filler works deep beneath the surface to rejuvenate the skin. The purpose of its main ingredient, Hyaluronic acid, is to deliver nutrients to the skin which naturally declines with age. With each passing year, we lose the ability to retain moisture in our skin, which makes the signs of aging on our face much more noticeable. Juvederm works in areas to soften and restore the skin making younger-looking skin possible.
What Can I Expect From a Treatment?
Depending on where you are receiving treatment, the process is fairly quick and is typically less than one hour. There may be slight bruising or puffiness to the treated area following the treatment, but you will be able to see results immediately!
After treatment, it is best to avoid strenuous exercise, limit exposure to the sun and heat, and avoid consuming alcohol. Liming exposure to these activities can decrease the possibility of temporary redness, itching, and swelling. Applying make-up to the area should be avoided as well, but your physician will recommend when you can begin your regular activities. Results may vary for each individual.
The results from treatment generally last 6 months to one year. Since this is a temporary solution, treatment should continue when the results begin to wear off.
