Many people come to me from Temecula and Riverside for plastic surgery advice when their faces begin to show signs of aging. Most of them are not aware of the difference non-surgical solutions can make. A recent independent study at the University of Michigan Medical School found that dermal fillers might slow, or even reverse, the aging of skin cells.
Researchers found that enhancing structural support of the skin with a cross-linked hyaluronic acid filler, such as JUVÉDERM, stimulated fibroblasts to produce collagen, activated production of more fibroblasts (collagen producers), increased blood vessels and improved skin thickness. It also improved other mechanisms of youthful skin. In essence, the skin behaved as if it were younger, even though the study participants were all over 70 years old!
Hyaluronic acid exists naturally in skin, serving to hydrate and provide volume. JUVÉDERM is composed of synthetic HA in a smooth gel formula. By injecting HA fillers like JUVÉDERM into the skin, I can restore facial volume and smooth out skin texture. Results from modern fillers last longer than you may think: JUVÉDERM has been shown to provide lasting improvements for up to a year.
