If you’re interested in restoring the fullness and volume to your skin, Juvederm could be the skin care treatment for you. Here’s a closer look at this treatment and what conditions it targets.

What is Juvederm?

This smooth injectable gel is considered the “next generation” of dermal injections. It is made from a compound called hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar found naturally in the body. An advanced version of Juvederm, known as Juvederm XC, adds Lidocaine to the other active ingredients in the gel.

Lidocaine is a painkiller that helps sensitive patients enjoy the beauty that can be theirs without the greater level of pain reported by patients who received standard Juvederm injections. Over 90 percent of patients report that they experienced less pain with the new XC formulation, making it the preferred version of this skin care treatment offered at Skintastic locations.

What skin care issues does Juvederm address?

As you age, your skin is subject to an increasing amount of stress in the form of UV rays, pollution, gravity, and chemical changes in your body. Despite your attention to skin care over the years, the fatty tissue that makes your facial skin appear smooth and supple gradually decreases and your skin loses its elasticity as well.

The active ingredient in Juvederm, hyaluronic acid, is designed to bind with water. As the acid attracts water to itself, it “plumps” the skin, thus filling out and smoothing surface wrinkles. In this way, the volume and fullness that your face once had can be restored with Juvederm injections from Skintastic.

The biggest difference between this skin care treatment and other dermal injections is that Juvederm has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid, meaning it makes skin smoother over the long term. Juvederm can last for up to one year and has been FDA approved for all skin types and colors.
