Are smile lines making you frown? Fine lines around the mouth are a normal part of the aging process. They’re evidence of a life well lived (and enjoyed!). But, not everyone loves their wrinkles. In fact, they can cause self-confidence issues. That’s why treatments exist to get rid of those annoying, fine lines.
While facial muscle paralytics, like BOTOX®, are popular for removing forehead wrinkles. One of the best options for smile lines is a gooey substance your body already produces. It’s called hyaluronic acid. And it can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Why use dermal fillers made with HA?
Your body naturally produces hyaluronic acid, aka HA. In fact, about 50% is in your skin. When you’re young, your body makes plenty of HA. That’s what keeps your skin soft, supple, and elastic. As you age, HA productions slow down, leading to wrinkles and lines around your mouth and eyes.
Juvéderm® is one of the world’s most popular HA composed dermal fillers. It’s manufactured by the same company that created BOTOX®. But unlike botulinum-based injectables, dermal fillers fill in wrinkle lines. Instead of freezing facial muscles into place.
These dermal fillers plump the skin, smooth out lines, enhance volume, and minimize the appearance of wrinkles. Sounds too good to be true, right? It’s not! And before you ask, yes, HA is safe and effective for use as a dermal filler.
At Springer Wellness and Restorative Health, we offer a line of Juvéderm® dermal fillers.
The Juvéderm® experience
Your first appointment will start with a quick consultation. This will determine which variant of the filler is right for your smile lines. Once we know the appropriate injectable, Dr. Robert Springer will administer your injection.
All our Juvéderm® treatments contain lidocaine. Which means, your injection shouldn’t hurt. However, you may feel tiny pinpricks during the procedure. And some mild discomfort a few hours after the lidocaine wears off. Icing your face will manage your symptoms and help you avoid any swelling or bruising.
You’ll see results immediately after your injections! Plus, the effects can last a while. Anywhere between six months to one year. Eventually, your body will absorb the HA. When that happens, you can return to our clinic for another treatment.
Don’t let smile lines keep you from being the best version of yourself. Do you want a younger, fresher appearance? Contact our office for a consultation or call us at 404-965-5561 today.
