Getting Rid of Your Marionette Lines with Juvederm Vollure XC

Age impacts the body in so many ways, and unfortunately it doesn’t spare the skin. After years of sun damage, muscle contractions, diminished collagen production, and the natural effects of aging, it is inevitable that your skin will display the proof of so much stress.

But you don’t need to feel defeated by the unstoppable forces of age. Juvederm Vollure XC is one of the many dermal fillers approved by the FDA to fight signs of aging. In particular, Juvederm Vollure XC is the first and only hyaluronic acid filler using Vycross technology for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds that lasts up to 18 months. If you are frustrated by the wrinkles and folds that are becoming carved into your skin, Vollure can reverse the damage and help you feel years younger.

Vollure XC Fills Wrinkles… and Makes Them Disappear

Vollure can be used to treat bothersome nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Nasolabial folds are the deep lines that run from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth, while marionette lines run downward from the corners of the mouth. Since these folds tend to be deeper than other wrinkles around the face, they can only be effectively filled with a durable and advanced dermal filler like Juvederm Vollure XC.

4 Reasons Botox is Widely Popular

Botox has been used to fight wrinkles for years, and it is one of the most widely used cosmetic treatments on the planet. We all know Botox can reverse wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause the skin to scrunch into wrinkles, but what are the other benefits that have helped to make Botox such a phenomenon? There are four main perks of Botox that keep patients coming back for more.

It’s a Quick and Easy Procedure

Only have your lunch break or an hour while your kids are at soccer practice? Botox can be done that quickly, because it’s a simple procedure!

What Happens When You Use Botox and Juvederm Together?

Some things are simply better together. Peanut butter and jelly; chips and dip; and now, Botox and Juvederm. These two injectables tackle unwanted signs of aging using different formulas, so many people don’t realize that they can be used strategically in tandem to support each other’s longevity and effectiveness. If you’re eager to find a simple yet long-lasting solution to the lines and wrinkles on your face, a combination of Botox and Juvederm could be the answer.

The Difference Between Botox and Juvederm

Botox is not a dermal filler like Juvederm. It is a neuromodulator that is injected directly into the specific facial muscles that cause wrinkles to form. The purified proteins in Botox relax muscles by blocking the signals that control contractions. Within a week of treatment, this makes it possible for wrinkles to fade away as smooth and youthful skin reappears. Due to the nature of Botox, it works most efficiently to smooth away frown lines in the forehead area, crow’s feet around the eyes, glabellar lines between the eyebrows, and neck wrinkles.

Eclipse Microneedling with PRP: This Cosmetic Treatment will Transform Your Skin

Microneedling itself is a powerful treatment that resurfaces the skin by triggering accelerated healing, and using it as a stand-alone treatment is sure to restore vibrancy and youthfulness to your skin. But adding PRP into the equation launches the treatment’s healing potential to an entirely new level.

Start Your New Year by Pampering Your Skin with a Facial or Chemical Peel

Who doesn’t want younger, healthier, more radiant skin? Unfortunately, the harsh Florida sun doesn’t make that an easy goal to achieve. The sun’s inescapable ultraviolet rays are your skin’s worst enemy, but they are especially stronger in the Tampa area.

In order to effectively battle signs of sun damage on your skin, you need to incorporate more than sunscreen and a wide-brimmed floppy hat. Winter is the perfect time to recover from summer damage by pampering your skin with a facial or chemical peel. During the only months of the year when the sun becomes slightly less intense in Florida, take the chance to remove dead and damaged cells and reveal healthy, vibrant skin underneath.

Will Botox Freeze My Face? Your Most Important Questions about Botox

Botox has become a household name over the past decade, and for good reason. It is the most trusted and time-tested wrinkle reducer on the market! From your favorite celebrities to your yoga instructor, plenty of people you know are already using Botox to reduce signs of wrinkles and aging on the face. But thanks to the natural and subtle effects of Botox, you may not even realize that their youthful appearance is the result of an injection, not winning the genetic lottery.

How Does Botox Work?

It’s virtually impossible to make it through a day without showing some type of emotion on your face, whether you’re smiling, cringing, or frowning. Your skin stretches and contracts every time you make an expression, but as you get older your skin is less capable of “bouncing back” from those expressions. This is why many of your wrinkles are most noticeable on your forehead or in between your brows. Continue reading “Will Botox Freeze My Face? Your Most Important Questions about Botox” »
