The New Generation Juvéderm® Family of Dermal Fillers
As we age, we may start to look more tired than we feel- lips and cheeks in particular can show the first signs of ageing, losing volume and deflating rather like a balloon. Fine lines appear on the upper lip, causing lipstick to smudge and the clear sharp definition we had becomes blurred. The French believe this volume loss has more effect on our appearance than the development of wrinkles or lines and so their approach to enhancing the face is to carefully replace volume in areas it has been depleted, rather than attempting to eradicate lines.
The products the French doctors favour to enhance what they refer to as the “natural beauty” of the face are BOTOX® and the “new generation” dermal fillers such as Voluma and Juvéderm®. Made in France, Juvéderm® has been the favourite amongst appearance medicine doctors in Europe for many years and has been taking Australia by storm since its launch there in 2006.
Shadows and hollowing beneath the eyes tends to make us look tired but can effectively and easily be treated with a small amount of Juvederm, filling in hollows and reducing unwanted “dark circles”.
As we age the plump smooth cheeks of youth gradually flatten as the fat pads descend. Replacing cheek fullness and enhancing the natural cheek bone line can have a dramatic yet subtle effect, and is easily achieved with Voluma, the latest treatment from the Juvederm range of hyaluronic acid fillers from Allergan which has been designed specifically for cheek enhancement.
