Can New Orleans area patients use Juvéderm for aging skin?By Dr. Mary Lupo
Turning back the hands of time is easier and safer with the assistance of a board certified dermatologist. The Lupo Center in New Orleans is ready to help provide non-surgical skin rejuvenation using dermal fillers and other injectables. Many patients are familiar with Botox, though it may not always be suitable for every individual’s specific needs and desires. For aging skin, many patients are educated on the advantages of Juvéderm. Dr. Lupo was an original investigator for this filler in 2004.
Juvéderm is a dermal filler fabricated from hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring in the body and can provide volume due to its ability to attract water in the skin. When injected, water molecules are attracted to the gel providing instant rejuvenation. This dermal filler is injected directly into the fine lines and wrinkles of concern to reduce their depth and make them much less noticeable.
Juvéderm is most appropriate for aging skin and can be used as a first step to reducing fine lines and wrinkles well before surgical treatments are considered. Surgical facelifts come with a myriad of risks and concerns, including extensive downtime, higher risks of infection, and cost. Patients with mild to moderate aging skin may want to consider these methods before invasive treatments are sought.
Patients in the New Orleans area and surrounding communities often visit the team of the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology to learn about Juvéderm and other injectables that can be used for rejuvenation.
