Under Eye Bags? Consider Juvéderm!

Millions of men and women are concerned about the appearance of their eyes; specifically, about the bags beneath them. A bit of temporary puffiness after a poor night’s sleep is one thing, as is swelling due to allergies. But the constant appearance of fatty deposits under the eyes can be quite frustrating. This type of puffiness is not related to sleep and does not tend to respond to the topical serums and creams that promise to tighten the skin. If you are tired of looking tired because of under eye bags, consider how the Juvéderm product can help.

Why we get under eye bags

JuvedermThe skin around the eyes is delicate but pretty resilient. Bags are not the result of anything you have done wrong, but of internal and external factors such as:

  • Genetic makeup
  • Degradation of the muscles around the eyes
  • Fatty deposits around the orbital bone
  • Loss of elasticity in the skin

Under eye bags have been a prevalent problem affecting both men and women for centuries. Today, we have a number of ways to address them, and not all of them require surgery. Topical solutions such as expensive eye creams typically fail to produce the desired result. This is because the underlying problem is typically related to the body’s biochemistry. Skin becomes loose when there is insufficient structural support from within, so a cream will do very little to restore what has been lost. What can accomplish this goal is the right dermal filler.

Juvéderm is widely recognized as a safe, effective solution to nasolabial folds, the creases that develop around the nose and mouth. As clinical use has expanded, physicians have discovered the positive impact that the hyaluronic acid filler has on the hollows under the eyes.

How it Works

Injectible fillers reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles by plumping them with a naturally-occurring substance. When Juvéderm is inserted into the crease beneath the bag, the appearance of puffiness disappears. Treatment takes only a few minutes, and the inclusion of lidocaine in the filler solution makes injections more comfortable. Results from Juvéderm treatment last up to a year.

Juvéderm and Restylane

Beauty ZenAre you looking for a non-surgical solution that will leave you looking younger and more attractive? Unfortunately as we age, gravity, repeated movements, and time can take a toll on the skin—especially the skin on the face and neck. If lost volume or wrinkles are making you look younger than you feel, there are a few non-invasive options available.

 

Botox is probably the most common tool for treating wrinkles, but it isn’t the only option. Botox is an excellent tool for treating wrinkles on the forehead and brow, but in some situations, dermal fillers provide better results for the lower sections of the face. Dermal fillers are often used to treat lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.

 

Dermal fillers can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but they can also be used to give your face a more youthful contour. As people age, their face often loses volume, which can make the cheeks look sunken or make your face look older.

 

Two of the best dermal fillers include Juvéderm and Restylane. Keep reading to learn more.

Juvéderm

Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid filler that is designed to treat facial folds and wrinkles.  The FDA approved Juvéderm and its family of products (which include Juvéderm Ultra and Juvéderm Ultra Plus in 2006.

 

Juvederm can be used to restore volume to the cheeks, smooth the hands, or reduce the appearance of lines on the face.

 

The majority of patients have results that last for up to 6 months, and in some cases the results last even longer.

Restylane

Restylane is another hyaluronic acid filler that was specifically created to treat moderate lines on the face. It is an excellent tool for treating marionette lines, smile lines, frown lines, and other wrinkles and folds in the lower section of the face.

 

Restylane has also been approved by the FDA, so it is a safe and trusted option for treating wrinkles.

 

Both Juvéderm and Restylane can provide excellent results that will improve your appearance and boost your confidence. If you’re interested in a non-surgical way to look younger, contact Sahara Medical Institute for a consultation.
