3 Juvederm Myths

JuvedermYou fill up your car, you fill up your water bottle, you fill your plate full of food, and you can even fill in your fine lines and wrinkles around your face. As one of the most popular dermal fillers on the market, Juvederm is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles on your face and in your lips. However, just like with anything that you are putting into your body, it’s nice to know fact from fiction. This article will discuss three common myths associated with Juvederm to help you feel more informed. Read on to learn more.

  1. It Takes a While to Recover

One of the things that Dr. Larry Weinstein can say for sure about Juvederm is that as long as you aren’t having any adverse reaction to it, you shouldn’t have any recovery time. In fact, although your skin may be a little inflamed in some areas for a day or two, everything else should be as good as new.

  1. It Can Be Used Around Your Whole Face

A common misconception that people have is that dermal fillers like Juvederm and injectables like Botox can be used to your entire face. However, that’s not the case. In fact, Juvederm is only approved to help fill in fine lines and wrinkles from the nose down— including your lips, nasolabial folds, and cheeks. Additionally, Botox is only approved to treat the fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes.

  1. It’s Harmful

If you are on an organic kick just like everyone else in the country, you are rightfully concerned about what you’re putting into your body and any harm that it can cause. However, Juvederm is a filler that is made up of an ingredient that is found naturally in our bodies: hyaluronic acid. So unlike other treatments that involve silicone, with Juvederm, you know that you are getting a natural treatment 100% of the time.

Now that you are aware of some of the myths associated with Juvederm, you can feel more informed before you get injections. To learn more about Juvederm and other fillers that we offer, or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Larry Weinstein, contact our office today!

 

 

Restore Your Skin Some More: 3 Easy Tips

skin care for winterWinter is notorious for bringing people a bit of winter gloom and a load of dry skin. If you have noticed that the skin on your face is feeling and looking a bit on the dehydrated side of things, consider adding the following steps to your daily routine. From wearing sunscreen to using a face scrub, this article will discuss a few helpful ways to restore your skin back to a smoother state. Read on to learn more.

  • Wear Sunscreen

As one of the things that most people neglect to wear during the winter, sunscreen will help your skin stay moisturized and will prevent you from drying out too much. Even if you are heading out on a walk on a gloomy, winter day, the sun can still shine through the clouds and dry out your skin. When choosing a sunscreen, look for one that is built into a face cream— that way you don’t have to worry about adding yet another thing to your medicine cabinet.

  • Layer on the Cream

Whether you naturally have dry or oily skin, winter weather doesn’t discriminate and can leave you feeling drier than ever. To help you stay moisturized, layer on the face cream across your skin both morning and night. If you start to notice that you are breaking out, ease off of the cream and try only applying it at night.

  • Use a Face Scrub

Although this article mentioned tips to use every day, you really should only be using a face scrub 2-3 times per week. If you use a scrub too frequently, you strip your skin of natural oils which can cause you to break out. When using a face scrub to get rid of the dry, dead skin on your face, focus on your T-zone— your forehead, nose, and chin.

Get your skin back to its smoother, more moisturized self for the rest of the season with the tips listed above. If you would like to learn more about how you can restore moisture to your skin, contact Dr. Larry Weinstein today!
