Facial wrinkles and creases begin to appear in your lips and skin as the underlying collagen and elastin fibers begin to break down and wear out. While this breakdown is part of the natural aging process, it can also result from excessive squinting, frowning and smiling. In the past, the most frequently used material for filling facial wrinkles and frown lines was injectable collagen. Now, at Lynch Plastic Surgery, we offer a newer, more longer lasting approach to facial rejuvenation: Juvederm® Injectable Gel.

This hyaluronic acid dermal filler is approved by the FDA and is proven to be safe and effective. Studies show better results compared to collagen-based dermal fillers. A single Juvederm® Injectable Gel treatment usually takes about 15 minutes and provides you with immediate results to smooth out facial lines and wrinkles for a natural look and feel. Your results can last up to six months or longer. Plus, there’s minimal recovery or downtime, so you can come into our office for your treatment and go back to the activities in your life looking years younger!!!
Hyaluronic acid is a natural complex sugar found in small quantities naturally in the skin. It plays an important role in moisturizing your skin and helps give skin its elasticity. Hyaluronic acid is the matter in which collagen fibers and elastin are combined. A reduction in hyaluronic acid over time causes skin to age. Juvederm®, when injected into your skin, replenishes natural hyalouronic acid, and hydrates the skin by absorbing and holding in the water, giving your skin back its volume and initial form. Aging lines are quickly reduced and the lip border can be lifted and increased instantly, helping to restore and preserve youthful looking skin and lip volume.
This procedure is a minimally invasive, with little to no down time. This treatment can be performed after placement of a topical numbing cream without any incisions or surgery. The results can last up to one year. If you want to improve the appearance of facial lines or your under eye area, don’t want to have surgery, and are frustrated with that “tired look”, this procedure may be right for you.
