As we age, our skin changes. Wrinkles and folds start to appear while cheeks and temples can become hollow. These are common aging signs that occur for everyone. Just because aging happens, doesn’t mean we have to live with it. If you are looking to take back your youth, Dr. Iacobucci offers Juvederm® injectable gel as a way to refresh your face. In Michigan, Dr. Iacobucci helps his patients feel more confident and beautiful at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Grand Rapids.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm XC is an injectable gel form of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. It is a basic element of connective tissue which provides volume, it also helps to retain moisture in the skin. Unfortunately, hyaluronic acid begins to diminish as we age. The Juvederm filler acts as a substitute for natural hyaluronic acid in the skin. It helps to smooth out the skin, add volume, and keep it hydrated. The hyaluronic acid is harmlessly absorbed into the body over time, giving it long-lasting results.
