Dermal or Facial Fillers
The ageing process is associated with loss of skin volume and moisture causing facial lines. Dermal fillers used today contain hyaluronic acid which is produced naturally in the body but decreases with age. Juvederm® Ultra is a non-animal hyaluronic acid filler that is able to correct mild and moderate folds and wrinkles by replacing lost volume and moisture and treats static facial l and makes lips fuller. It is also used to add volume and shape to cheeks and lifts sagging jowl. As a result the face feels smoother and looks younger. Juvederm® Ultra is used by Déjà Vu Aesthetics as it contains lidocaine which makes any procedure less painful. More than one treatment session may be required to obtain optimal effect.
About Natural Hyaluronic Acid (HA).
- Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body.
- Hyaluronic Acid helps hydrate and add volume to our skin.
- One third of the body’s HA is naturally removed and replaced every day.
- Naturally occurring HA decreases with age.
What causes the skin to age?
For many people, the younger they look, the better they feel about themselves. But age is an unstoppable process and as the body ages, so does the skin and its appearance and characteristics change. Age, hormones, sun exposure, smoking all have a part to play, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Skin feels more fragile and less elastic. As our age increases, the hyaluronic acid (HA) content of our skin which is so important for water retention decreases. The oil-producing (sebaceous) glands become less active and your skin becomes drier. The skin also loses fat, so it looks less plump and smooth and it also loses its youthful colour and glow. While all these changes are taking place, gravity is also at work, pulling at the skin, causing it to sag.
