Can Injections Improve Skin Elasticity?
Hyaluronic acid is a special substance that is naturally produced by our skin cells and aids in the maintenance of moisture levels in our body’s largest organ…our skin. This amazing substance holds up to 1000 times its weight in water. But after age 26, hyaluronic acid diminishes in our bodies and combined with environmental factors, our skin becomes dry, develops fine wrinkles, and loses elasticity. Don’t feel defeated yet, we can replace that lost hyaluronic acid with a little help from science!
What Type of Injections Can Help?
One very special type of injection that can help your skin regain its hydration, smoothness, and elasticity is Juvederm Volite. Juvederm Volite is a hyaluronic acid injectable gel that aims at moisturizing your skin, improving elasticity, and increasing collagen production. It is different from other types of injectibles that often only aim to fill wrinkles. It can hydrate skin because hyaluronic acid has a very high water-binding capacity and it is able to improve skin’s elasticity because it also stimulates the production of collagen. Just one treatment can improve your skin’s health for nine months.

What Are the Treatments Like?
The Juvederm Volite treatment consists of a series of tiny injections in the area that is being treated. The injections take approximately 30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. Preparing for the treatment takes an additional 45-60 minutes because a numbing cream is applied to the treatment area and then cleansed before the injections are done. When the treatment is completed, it is not uncommon to have small raised bumps where the injections were given, but these will disappear in a few hours after the procedure. Patients are advised to refrain from using make up for 12 hours and to avoid exercise for the first 2 days after the treatment. Results will begin to appear within two weeks of the treatment and the patient’s skin will be smoother and healthier looking for up to nine months afterward.
Is Juvederm Volite Right For Me?
Anyone who is seeking relief from dry, aging skin and wanting to gain a smoother, more refreshed look to their skin should definitely consider Juvederm Volite treatments. The very best way to decide if the treatment is right for you and to have all of your questions answered is by scheduling a complimentary consultation with a medical professional.
