HYALURONIC ACID INJECTIONS – JUVEDERM®, JUVEDERM® VOLUMA™ XC, RESTYLANE® AND RESTYLANE LYFT®
If you want to reduce facial wrinkles and lines, hyaluronic acid may be a good choice as a dermal filler because of its compatibility with the human body. In fact, this substance is found in almost every single living thing. In humans, it acts as a network that transfers essential nutrients from the bloodstream to skin cells.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in your body. High concentrations are found in soft connective tissues and in the fluid surrounding your eyes. It’s also in some cartilage and joint fluids, as well as skin tissue. It is extracted and reformulated and now has become one of the most popular kinds of injectable fillers.
If the term sounds familiar, it’s because the same substance is often injected into the aching joints of people with arthritis to ease pain and provide extra cushioning. When this gel is injected, it acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging. It also brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple.
JUVÉDERM®’s smooth gel is a dermal facial filler that can reduce signs of wrinkles and add volume to the lips and cheeks. The active ingredient in JUVÉDERM® is hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the human body, eliminating the need for an allergy test. Hyaluronic acid also attracts water molecules to restore volume lost during the natural aging process. With JUVÉDERM®, our experienced team at Advanced Aesthetics in Las Vegas can help you meet your cosmetic enhancement goals.
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC
Over time, the natural aging process can cause the skin to lose its volume and elasticity, as well as develop fine lines and wrinkles. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is currently the first and only injectable dermal filler approved by the FDA for treating the cheeks and midfacial region. We offer this treatment option at our Las Vegas med spa to help restore lost volume to the cheeks and smooth out moderate to severe wrinkles in the midfacial region. With JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC, you can achieve your goals with beautiful results!
RESTYLANE® / RESTYLANE LYFT®
Restylane® and Restylane LYFT® are popular dermal fillers here at Advanced Aesthetics of Las Vegas. These treatments are designed to create a revitalized, more youthful aesthetic. Restylane® and Restylane LYFT® can add volume to the skin and lips as well as fill the void in wrinkles, lines, creases, and folds. Both injectables are made of hyaluronic acid, a natural compound found in the human body, which usually makes allergy tests unnecessary. There is only a slight difference between Restylane® and Restylane LYFT®. The size of Restylane LYFT® molecules are generally larger and injections can be made deeper into the skin tissue, so it is intended for more severe wrinkles, while Restylane® can be effective at targeting mild to deep wrinkles.
