As we age, our body starts to lose some of its moisture and volume. As a result, parts of our body that were once plump and full become sunken and hollow, leading to the development of fine lines and wrinkles in certain areas. An example of this is the area around our mouth. As a person ages, their lips lose their natural volume. People start to develop something that is referred to as smoker’s lips. The term smoker’s lips is a misnomer because individuals, be them smokers or not, develop the same wrinkles on their lips. One of the best ways to address signs of aging in the lips and mouth is Juvederm® treatments at our office in West Palm Beach.
The lines and wrinkles happen because your lips have lost volume. As a result, the remaining skin starts to bunch up. You can kind of think of your lips like small balloons. As you get older, the volume in these balloons starts to go away, and you’re left with wrinkled skin.
Hyaluronic acid can help. Hyaluronic acid is an ingredient that is naturally found in your skin. It is part of what gives your skin its volume and its framework. Hyaluronic acid is a key factor in your skin’s hydrodynamics. It is what allows your body to hold onto water. Unfortunately, your body starts to make less and less hyaluronic acid as you age. This leads to a reduction in fullness and causes your skin to lose its volume and look less youthful.
This is where Juvederm® injectable treatments in West Palm Beach come into play. These products have a high hyaluronic acid content. They are used to hydrate and rejuvenate your skin. When Juvederm® is injected into your lips and mouth area, it helps regain a full and plump appearance.
Juvederm® treatments are non-surgical. This means that little to no downtime is involved. This treatment is extremely convenient for people in West Palm Beach who have busy schedules and lifestyles.
Juvederm® injections may be perfect for you if you are uncomfortable with the way that lines and wrinkles are making your lips and mouth look. The hyaluronic acid in the Juvederm® injections makes it so that your lips gradually absorb water, increasing their volume. You are left with attractive, plump, and youthful lips that you will be happy to look at every day.
