Patients in the Orange County area learn about dermal fillers such as Juvederm
When patients in the Orange County visit The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery, they often speak with Dr. Thuan Nguyen about ways to rejuvenate their appearance. More specifically, they want to address fine lines and wrinkles on the face that may make them look much older than they truly are. This is when patients are introduced to injectables that provide a non-invasive way of reducing these imperfections on the skin. While surgical procedures such as the facelift can also help, this is typically recommended in situations where there is excessive skin laxity and sagging that is causing more major wrinkles and folds. Minor to moderate fine lines and wrinkles may be improved in a less invasive way such as with injections.
There are many types of injectables including neuromodulators, dermal fillers, and collagen stimulators. One of the most popular dermal fillers used is that of Juvederm.
Juvederm is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is already naturally-occurring in the skin. Dr. Thuan Nguyen finds Juvederm to be incredibly versatile. It can help with mild to moderate wrinkles and can be used almost anywhere on the face. It works by providing instant volume directly where it is injected, reducing the overall depth of the wrinkles and therefore making them much less noticeable by smoothing out the skin.
Juvederm is popular because it is effective, safe, and affordable. Many patients find that Juvederm is the one dermal filler that can provide long-term results. Juvederm is known for lasting anywhere from six to 12 months, variant due to several factors. Dr. Thuan Nguyen finds this to be a wonderful starting point when it comes to introducing injectables to new and existing patients, and may suggest other brands or types over time to assist patients in maintaining their more youthful appearance after the initial treatment.
If you live in or around the Orange County community and have considered the advantages of less invasive procedures such as injectables, it is important to learn what you can about the various types and how they can assist in reducing the signs of aging on the skin.
