Why Juvéderm Could Be Right for You

The aging process can be cruel for many reasons, starting with the fact that your highly visible skin is the first place to show the signs of passing years. If your skin is looking far older than you feel, there are several approaches to more youthful skin, but none easier than cosmetic injectables.

At Genesis Regenerative Sports and Aesthetic Medicine, our team believes patients should feel great on the inside, as well as look good on the outside, which is why we offer aesthetic services. At the heart of our aesthetics are quick-and-easy cosmetic injectables like the dermal filler line by JuvédermⓇ.

Here’s a look at how we can breathe new life into aging skin with Juvéderm.

Aging and your skin

Your skin’s primary role is to protect and shield you, and it does its job well. Whether it’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays or flying objects, your skin provides a barrier between you and the world, and the wear and tear can add up.

One of the leading offenders when it comes to aging skin is exposure to the sun. In fact, UV rays are responsible for up to 90% of the visible signs of aging in your skin, especially in highly exposed areas like your face.

The next enemy is one that’s even harder to control — a natural loss of collagen and elastin, which are the proteins responsible for the structural support in your skin. Starting in your 20s, you lose 1% of collagen production a year, which leads to deep folds, thinning tissue, and sagging skin. This loss is gradual at first, but for women who pass through menopause, the deficit becomes more pronounced.

Fighting back with Juvéderm

It used to be that the only way to achieve younger-looking skin was through invasive procedures like facelifts. Today, we have cosmetic injectables that reduce the signs of aging almost immediately, and there’s no downtime afterward.

One of the most effective cosmetic injectables is a dermal filler, which restores volume to those areas where your skin is sagging or where you’ve developed deep folds. Here at our practice, we offer the full suite of Juvéderm products, which are industry leaders in the world of dermal fillers.

The primary ingredient in Juvéderm products is hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occuring substance in your body. With Juvéderm, we can accomplish a wide range of objectives, including:

When you come in, one of our aesthetic specialists sits down with you to determine the best approach to your aging skin, and then we get to work. Administering the Juvéderm products takes us only mere minutes for each target area, and your results are immediate.

You can enjoy these results for a year or more, though results may vary.

To schedule your Juvéderm appointment with us, simply contact our office in Westfield, New Jersey.
