Most people think age is not their friend. Wrinkles, sunspots, and sagging skin make women feel old and worn out. However, there is a way to marry beauty with maturity, and that way is with dermal fillers. It is no secret that Mother Nature sometimes needs a little help.
What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm, or dermal filler, is used to plump up wrinkles, refill sagging, sunken cheeks, and eliminate lines on the lip areas. The reason Juvederm in River North is so popular is simple: it’s biodegradable and bio compatible. The product, Juvederm Voluma, is made of hyaluronic acid, and these hyaluronic acid fillers are made from substances similar to what naturally occurs in our bodies, which is why the risk of an allergic reaction to this substance is very small. The Juvederm Voluma is used primarily around the midsection of the facial area — cheeks and lips — to plump up and restore volume where collagen has started to break down. The result is younger looking skin with noticeable volume.
Another Juvederm product, Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus, can be used on the lower facial areas (like the lines around the nose and mouth) with great results. Clinics that offer Juvederm in River North use this product because it produces amazing results by binding moisture and filling in those wrinkles.
Both products are eliminated by the body naturally. They are also safe and provide reliable results. However, there are some differences. Juvederm Ultra Plus lasts from 9 to 12 months, while Juvederm Ultra lasts slightly less time, about 6 to 9 months. Juvederm Voluma can last up to two years in cheeks and 12 to 18 months in folds, lines, and wrinkles. It lasts about a year in your lips.
