Say Goodbye to Crow's Feet and Frown Lines with Juvederm®

Say Goodbye to Crow's Feet and Frown Lines with Juvederm®

Genetics and sun exposure play a role, but if you live long enough, the march of time takes its toll on all skin. 

As you age, various systems in your body begin to slow and function less efficiently. Your skin is no exception. You start producing less collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, the elements that have kept your skin looking plump and luscious for your whole life — until now.

A quality skin care routine and treatments are essential in the overall health and appearance of your skin, but fillers and Botox help where topical options are not enough. The solution is to replace what’s been lost within.

Enter Juvéderm® — one of the most advanced dermal fillers available today. Experienced cosmetic surgeons like Rick J. Smith, MD, in East Lansing, Michigan, trust Juvéderm to safely and effectively restore lost volume and reveal smoother and tighter skin. Here’s how it works.

A look under your wrinkled skin

When collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid no longer provide the scaffolding your skin needs to maintain its contours, you begin to notice the effects, such as sunken cheeks, sagging jowls, and crepey wrinkles. If you’ve ever released the air from a latex balloon and witnessed the transformation of the once-taut surface into a shriveled, stretched, and misshapen mass, you get the idea.

However, if you inflate the balloon again, the wrinkles disappear, and the balloon regains its rounded shape. The same is true for your skin. But instead of air, we use a gel-like substance that contains hyaluronic acid — Juvéderm.

Juvéderm treatment areas 

Juvéderm offers a full line of injectable hyaluronic products formulated to address specific facial imperfections. Here are some of the areas Juvéderm treats.

Crow’s feet

Those tiny lines at the outer corners of your eyes are often the first wrinkles to appear as you age. That’s because the skin around your eyes is very delicate, and every time you smile or squint, you break down the tissues and set the lines commonly called crow’s feet.

Juvéderm injections can add just enough volume under the wrinkles to raise your skin and reduce your wrinkles. 

Frown lines

Stand in front of a mirror and frown. Do you see those vertical lines between your eyebrows? Those are glabellar lines, and they get deeper as the years pass. After a while, they stay in place even when you’re not frowning. Botox will help you from creating more wrinkles, and Juvederm can be used to fill in the deeper lines.

Thin lips

Whether you were born with thin lips or your once-plump pout has lost its volume, a little Juvéderm injected in strategic spots can restore your lips’ fullness and erase the lines around them. Make sure you choose a fully qualified and highly experienced injector because in the wrong hands, injectable fillers can produce unnatural effects.

Cheek and chin augmentation

If you’ve always wanted shapelier cheeks and a stronger chin but you don’t want to undergo surgery, Juvéderm may be the solution. Dr. Smith’s team can artfully recontour these facial features to give you the profile you’ve always longed for.
