Over time, with years of smiles, frowns, and environmental factors, there may be some lines that settle in, creating fine lines and deep wrinkles. As we age, two important components, collagen, and elastin, that keep our skin structures tight and supple, begin to diminish. As a result, we notice there is volume loss and less definition. Our ability to retain moisture also diminishes with time and exposure to the environment. Hyaluronic Acid, a substance that is naturally created by the body, is now manufactured and FDA approved to be injected under the skin, helping us retain moisture, and giving us a youthful glow.
At Redefine by Z, we currently use Juvederm® Volbella (™) XC, which is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that works to add volume to the lips and fill and soften fine lines around the perioral area (the region around the mouth). Hydrating and rejuvenating the skin, Juvederm® gel is the most pliable on the market today. Say goodbye to those unsightly marionette lines that run downwards from the corners of the mouth. Smooth out those laugh lines. And get rid of those vertical lines above the top lip, often referred to as smokers lines.
Effects of Juvederm Volbella can last up to one year. Since the substance is a hyaluronic acid in gel form, it will start to break down naturally and be absorbed by the body over time.
