Juvéderm® for Toronto Women and Men
What do you see when you look in the mirror?
Are you happy with the reflection you see, or lately, do you only focus on the
ravages of time? As we age, we may notice unwelcome changes. Our lips get
thinner. The bags under our eyes become more prominent. Those tiny lines
between our eyebrows may deepen into furrows. Skin begins to sag and droop, and
may even cause the resting expression of our faces to change. Thankfully, there
are affordable and safe ways to turn back the clock! One of the most effective is Juvéderm® treatment,
which is available at many Toronto medical clinics.
What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is an injectable dermal filler that
can help you stay youthful looking. Juvéderm® is composed of hyaluronic acid.
HA is a naturally occurring sugar found in your body that helps to maintain
volume and elasticity in the skin. As we age, our skin becomes less able to
produce HA, becoming more fragile, and losing elasticity and volume. Skin also
loses fat over time, which contributes to volume loss in our faces resulting in
a flattened and aged appearance.
Juvéderm® was developed to combat the "Three
Ds” of aging:
- Deterioration. Fine lines, wrinkles,
skin texture change.
- Descent. Droopiness or sagging skin.
- Deflation. Loss of fullness or volume.
There are several contributors to the process
of aging. Genetics plays a major role, as cell division rate determines some of
the signs of aging. This is known as "intrinsic” aging. Extrinsic aging factors
include sun damage, pollution, cigarette smoking, frequent facial expressions,
and even gravity.
No matter what the cause of the signs of
aging, Juvéderm® can help to restore your face to a more youthful condition.
Where to Obtain Juvéderm® Treatment
In Toronto and the GTA, many enterprises
offer injectable facial treatments such as dermal fillers and Botox. However,
it’s important to choose specialists in these treatments in order to ensure
that your experience will be safe and worthwhile.
Here are some of the points to consider when
choosing injectable treatments:
clinic. While all kinds of establishments are now offering injectable
treatments, it’s best to find a clinic that specializes in these procedures.
Only a professional with experience can assess the amount of Juvéderm®
necessary, and can inject the filler precisely in the right spot for maximum
- Cleanliness. Be sure
that the clinic you choose puts a premium on using only sterile equipment, and
that the premises are clean, pleasant, and welcoming.
concerns. The clinic you choose should feature trained medical personnel.
This might mean a physician overseeing operations, nurses doing the procedures,
or both. They should take a full medical history during your initial
consultation, and they should inform you fully about any possible risks with
goals. Don’t trust a clinic that makes extravagant promises. Enhancing
your beauty is the goal, but it may not be possible – or even desirable – to
erase all of your forehead wrinkles, or make your lips look the way they did
several decades ago. Work with a professional to come up with realistic goals
for your treatment, and aim for a natural look.
