Juvederm Volite Skin Plumping
Juvederm Volite & Skin Aging
Skin aging is a slow and progressive process that occurs slowly over the course of decades. Common changes seen with skin aging include loss of facial volume, the effects of gravity, and the degeneration of collagen with loss of elasticity. Over time the skin begins to sag and develops textural changes and permanent deep wrinkles. Additionally, skin aging is worsened by the loss of skin moisture.
Moisture loss in the skin, in particular, is an often overlooked sign of aging. Losing skin moisture is a natural finding as the skin ages because our skin loses the ability to efficiently generate hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is key ingredient responsible for skin hydration. In fact, hyaluronic acid is able to carry multiple times its own weight in water, making it an ideal molecule to introduce hydration into the skin when needed.
