Can Juvederm Really Help Treat Sagging Cheeks?

Published on May 13, 2015

In most cases, dermatologist-administered cosmetic procedures are easily the best way to dramatically reverse the signs of aging. Your doctor can help you identify a solution that will not only combat sagging and wrinkles, but also meet your personal needs. At Westchester Center for Dermatology, Juvederm is one of the most effective available treatments. With Juvederm, you can receive immediate results from the comfort of our office.

There are many different types of anti-aging procedures available including:

However, they are all different from each other. Botox is one of the most classic treatments. It is administered via an injection, and its primary purpose is to restrict facial muscles from moving (ultimately inhibiting wrinkle formation). On the other hand, Juvederm works in unison with the body to help your face regain volume and structure. At Westchester Center for Dermatology, we have successfully treated countless satisfied patients with Juvederm. This page will hopefully give you a better understanding of this revolutionary cosmetic treatment.

What is Juvederm, and How Does It Work?

Approved by the FDA for years, Juvederm is a classic dermal filler; one of the first available of its kind. The treatment is designed to extra volume to targeted areas on the face. It is most commonly used around the mouth and nose.

Currently, Juvederm comes in two variations. Speak with your cosmetic dermatologist about which type is best for your needs. One of the most meaningful benefits of Juvederm is that it does not affect skin pigmentation whatsoever in people with dark complexions. The same cannot be said for other similar treatments.

What makes Juvederm such an effective cosmetic treatment?

One of Juvederm’s primary components is HA (hyaluronic acid). At a young age, the body naturally contains a high amount of HA. HA is needed in order to moisturize and hydrate the skin. With aging, the amount of HA in the skin gradually lessens. Therefore, sagging and wrinkles begin to take over. Juverderm is a treatment designed to quite literally inject HA back into your skin. Once it is re-introduced to the body, your sagging skin and wrinkles will immediately begin to dissipate.

There has been extensive research completed that suggests introducing high amounts of HA back into your body can prompt collagen production. This process is important for keeping the skin supple and firm. Collagen amounts also decrease in number with age.
