Look Great When the Mask Comes Off With Juvéderm Facial Fillers!
New Yorkers are resilient – but that doesn’t mean we are immune to stress. And what a stressful year it has been! The dermatologists at Goldenberg Dermatology have often discussed the toll that stress can take on the skin. As the city slowly returns to normal, many men and women are looking in the mirror (or seeing themselves on Zoom or Instagram) and realizing that they look considerably older than they did before the pandemic.
And while it’s easy to dye away those new grey hairs, reversing lines and wrinkles is another story. So, with quarantine scaling back, our patients from across New York, Bergen County, Great Neck and Greenwich, CT are flocking back into the city to get facial fillers.
In this article, board certified dermatologist and anti-aging expert Dr. Gary Goldenberg explains how facial fillers can turn back the clock on your appearance, too, for a more refreshed, “pre-pandemic” look.
How Stress Ages Skin
Emotional or psychological strain is clinically proven to “age” the skin. When an individual experiences a stressful situation, their body produces more of the “fight-or-flight” stress hormone called cortisol. And cortisol can wreak havoc on the face (and body) many ways.
High amounts of cortisol actually break down the skin’s structural building blocks: collagen and elastin. As a result, skin becomes lax, loses elasticity and wrinkles and lines form. Stress also leads to inflammation, which decreases the skin’s ability to repair itself – further increasing lines and wrinkles.
Additionally, when a person loses precious collagen, the skin’s overall volume also diminishes. And this can cause lips to essentially “deflate” – which also adds years to one’s appearance.
And, to add insult to injury, increased cortisol secretion also promotes weight gain, and affects where the body stores the weight. So, belly fat and droopy jowls can develop as a result of stress as well!
Facial Fillers for Fast Anti-Aging
At Goldenberg Dermatology we offer a wide array of state-of-the-art facial rejuvenation procedures, including advanced MIXto carbon dioxide (CO2) laser and revolutionary Laser Genesis treatments. These procedures help the skin renew and repair wrinkles and lines over a period of several months, while the body gradually produces renewed levels of collagen and elastin over time.
But nothing provides instant anti-aging results like injectable facial fillers – including Juvéderm, our most popular dermal injection.
Juvéderm injections immediately fill in lines and wrinkles – and can also add volume to lips, cheeks and sunken contours that show signs of aging. After a single half hour treatment, our New York, Bergen County, Great Neck and Greenwich, CT patients enjoy plumper, smoother, more youthful-looking skin and lips.
How Juvéderm Facial Fillers Reverse Signs of Stress & Aging
Hyaluronic acid is a substance which occurs naturally in the face providing moisture and activating collagen production for firm, smooth, elastic skin. Juvéderm facial fillers are made of synthesized Hyaluronic acid, in a formula that is almost molecularly identical to that found in young, healthy skin.
Different formulations and concentrations of Juvéderm have been developed to provide the perfect consistency to replace facial volume and fill lines – depending on which area is being injected and how deep the treatment needs to be.
Juvéderm not only attracts and retains moisture, but also stimulates the production of new collagen – keeping wrinkles, lines and deflated skin at bay.
Three Ways Juvéderm Fights Signs of Aging
Juvéderm facial fillers can be used the following ways to reverse aging:
#1. Fill lines and wrinkles, especially marionette lines, vertical “smokers’ lines, “11” lines between the eyes, brow lines and crow’s feet;
#2. Plump and add volume, softness and moisture to aging, deflated lips; and
#3. Volumize hollow, flat or sunken areas such as the cheeks.
Safest & Longest Lasting Facial Fillers | NYC
Facial fillers not only provide immediate anti-aging results, they are also incredibly safe and extremely long lasting when properly administered by a board-certified dermatologist like Dr. Goldenberg in New York City.
Juvéderm has been FDA approved since 2006, with millions of patients worldwide enjoying its amazing antiaging benefits. Because it is made of a version of a substance naturally found in the body, it does not have significant long-term effects. And, in the unlikely event you do not like the results (which is incredibly rare) an enzyme can be injected which will dissolve the product.
And, thanks to modern developments in facial filler technology, newer generations of Juvéderm facial filler formulas can literally last for years. Juvéderm Voluma, which has the highest and thickest concentration of hyaluronic acid can last up to an amazing 2 years – making it the longest lasting temporary facial filler on the market.
We’ve all been through so much the past year – but our faces don’t have to show it! Schedule an appointment for Juvéderm or other facial fillers at Goldenberg Dermatology and join our hundreds of patients from New York, Bergen County, Great Neck and Greenwich, CT who have turned back time with dermal fillers.
