If "smile lines" have left your face looking a little wilted, you can perk up with Juvederm.

 Juvederm

Aging gracefully doesn't mean you have to allow wrinkles to take over your face, nor do you need to have surgery that can incur debt and a long recovery time. The Aesthetic Dermatology Center in Vero Beach is pleased to offer Juvederm treatments to their patients. This is a quick, non-invasive way to revitalize the skin and soften deep lines that form between the nose and the corners of the mouth (sometimes referred to as "marionette lines" or "smile lines").

Juvederm's contents

Approved by the FDA in 2006, Juvederm is a filler made from hyaluronan, a naturally-occurring acid found in the tissues of mammals. This acid works in the body to maintain skin and muscle volume and hydration, making it an excellent agent for reducing wrinkles. It binds with collagen and elastin already found beneath the skin's to smooth the lines from the inside out. This produces a subtle, natural but still noticeable difference in your face.

Application

A gel is injected into the areas that need revitalized using a tiny needle. Most patients report very little pain during the procedure, which takes about 30 minutes or less, and results are immediately visible upon completion. While downtime is minimal, there may be some temporary swelling and bruising at the injection sites. These treatments are designed to last from nine months to a year before reapplication will be needed.
