When people think about non-surgical ways to improve their appearance, one of the very first products that pops into their mind is BOTOX®. And it’s true that BOTOX® has made a name for itself as a premium non-surgical cosmetic treatment. However, BOTOX® has limits to what it can do. It is specifically designed to help people who have dynamic wrinkles.

To understand what dynamic wrinkles are, look at yourself in the mirror. Now smile, then frown and now make an angry expression. Do you see the wrinkles that form along the sides of your eyes and on your forehead? These are dynamic wrinkles. These are what BOTOX® can treat. Now, while looking in the mirror, maintain a neutral facial expression. Do you still see wrinkles? These are static wrinkles. They are there regardless of your facial expression. Treating these wrinkles is outside of what BOTOX® was designed to do.

This does not mean that you are without options. In fact, there are many treatments that have been designed specifically to help people who have developed static wrinkles. One of the most popular treatments in this field is Juvederm®. Juvederm® is a dermal filler that is designed to restore the moisture and to restore the volume your face has lost as a result of the natural aging process.

As your face loses volume, your skin begins to sag. You start to develop jowls, and you start to get wrinkles in certain spots. Worse yet, your face takes on a hollow appearance. The truth is that losing facial volume has a larger effect on how old you look than getting a few wrinkles does. Juvederm® will restore your facial volume, and it will give your face the compounds it needs to create its own moisture and maintain volume in the future. The result is that you look refreshed, younger and happier.

You may be asking yourself if you are a good candidate for Juvederm®. There are a few things to consider that will help you answer this question. First, you need to examine your physical and emotional health. If you are not generally healthy, and especially if you have skin infections or skin lesions in the area that you want to treat, then Juvederm® may not be the right option for you.

Additionally, if you are making the decision to use Juvederm® because you have been pressured by others to try to look younger and this is not something that you are doing yourself, then you may not be a good candidate for treatment.

Good Juvederm® candidates have a realistic idea of what the treatment can do for them, and they understand what it cannot do. They understand what the end outcome will be, and that is the outcome they want.

Juvederm® is a powerful tool that can help to restore the youthful glow to your face. It can help to define the contours of your face and make you a happier, younger-looking version of yourself.
