People think of wrinkles as the ultimate signs of aging, but when you look at a person’s photos and compare an image from their 20th birthday with one from the dreaded 50th, what’s really striking is the loss of volume. The cheeks flatten and sink downward. The lips thin and wrinkle. Around the mouth, wrinkles form and deepen without underlying support.
Two things really. The first problem is collagen. Collagen is the protein that provides the skin’s underlying support framework. It keeps the skin firm and plump. But at that same 20th birthday, collagen begins its inexorable decline. The body produces one percent less collagen every year after it turns 20, so at 50 your skin is now dealing with a 30 percent decline in collagen production. Considering this, no wonder things start to droop and sink. The other problems are simple aging and gravity. The constant downward force, coupled with weakening muscle and support tissue, adds to the forces loosening your skin. Throw in environmental damage from the sun, weather, and personal habits and you have a perfect storm of facial aging.
Dermal fillers replace some of that lost volume. At Acclaim Dermatology, in Sugar Land, TX, we offer a variety of dermal fillers including three products in the Juvéderm® family: Juvéderm® XC, Juvéderm® Voluma XC, and Juvéderm® Ultra XC. Each is intended to address a different area of the face and replace decreased volume.
