How to Treat Wrinkles With Juvéderm®

One of the most frequently cited concerns of getting older is the gradual appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Now, more than ever, younger people are looking for treatments to smooth out skin that was once baby-soft, but now has some signs of texture and wrinkling.

While several preventive measures can treat wrinkles and give your skin some much-needed revitalizing (in particular, laser resurfacing and Skinpen microneedling), Juvéderm® has repeatedly proven to provide beautiful, natural-looking anti-wrinkling results.

In this guide, the expert team at Etre Cosmetic Dermatology will discuss how wrinkles form and why dermal fillers, especially Juvéderm®, are fantastic treatments.

The Gradual Formation of Wrinkles

Wrinkles form as a result of your skin losing its chemical structural integrity.

Young skin has high levels of structural proteins, such as elastin and collagen. Your body naturally produces high quantities of these proteins well into your late 20s and early 30s.

However, depending on your genetics and lifestyle choices, your body will begin to slow the production of these structural proteins around 30. The older you get, the more slowly your body will naturally generate collagen and elastin, leading to wrinkles and skin laxity.

Less elastin and collagen means your skin will lose its natural resilience and stop being smooth and pliable. At this point, fine lines gradually evolve into wrinkles, and you become an excellent candidate for Juvéderm®.

Juvéderm® and Other Dermal Fillers

Two types of wrinkles form with age – dynamic and static wrinkles.

Static wrinkles result from muscles eventually becoming fixed in a permanent position and require the use of a neuromodulator, such as BOTOX®, to treat.

However, before wrinkles become static, they are dynamic. Dynamic wrinkles appear due to repetitive facial motions like smiling and frowning, which reveal fine lines that eventually settle in and become wrinkles.

Medical-grade injectables, such as Juvéderm® and Restylane®, are ideal for volumizing the skin in these trouble areas. Injecting the product precisely into the desired treatment area minimizes wrinkles and causes smoother skin.
