Over time, your skin loses elasticity and moisture, which contributes to moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Various factors, such as sun exposure, aging, and life’s everyday stresses, can leave an individual’s face looking worn out and tired.
With the ever-growing desire to look younger, more people have turned to injectable fillers to instantly add more volume to the face and attain a more youthful appearance.
South Texas plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Bindewald has helped many patients achieve facial rejuvenation through the use of a variety of injectables, including JUVÉDERM® XC.
JUVÉDERM® XC is the #1 selling injectable filler made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. It is used to correct moderate wrinkles and folds in the face by providing volume with molecules that retain water. JUVÉDERM® XC can usually last anywhere from six months to a year, depending on the age and lifestyle of the individual.
All injectables used by San Antonio plastic surgeon Dr. Bindewald are FDA approved.
The type of injectable(s) that will be used during your procedure will depend on the areas of the face that need improvement and the severity of aging that exists. Each injectable is inserted under the skin using a syringe with a very fine needle. In many cases, the entire treatment can be completed in about an hour.
There is no downtime associated with the injectables Dr. Bindewald uses in his San Antonio office. Patients often return to work immediately after they have their injections performed.
Dr. Bindewald’s patients have been very satisfied with their treatments, feeling more confident about themselves and their new, more youthful appearance. Even though injectables may have some lasting effects, follow-up treatments are recommended in order to maintain your refreshed appearance.
