The Story of Juvederm in NYC

Juvederm isn’t hard to find anymore, especially not in big cities like NYC. Being an NYC resident, you currently have the unprecedented opportunity to get a little delayed with the power of Juvederm and the amazing abilities of modern cosmetic technology. This all sounds too convenient to be true, but it’s actually very much true.

Juvederm NYC clinics’ favorite dermal filler is widely available in a wide variety of clinics across the city and for prices that won’t leave you with an empty wallet. But before we can talk about deals on the treatment, we must first understand how Juvederm and other dermal fillers work and what they accomplish.

It’s important to know exactly what to expect from treatment before we even think about the payment model or making an appointment. Luckily, dermal fillers including Juvederm are very straight forward, with a simple procedure that leads to some of the most shockingly effective results the beauty industry has to offer. No wonder why so many clinics, not just NYC based, are picking up Juvederm as their go-to dermal filler.

Looking at Volume

When you think of a youthful face, what are some factors that come to your mind? You imagine smooth skin that sits tight against the facial structure, you also imagine a lively pigmentation with a color that pops out and looks fresh and vigorous. But what about the actual shape of the face; what kind of form comes to mind when thinking about a younger face.

Youthfulness is more than just having smooth skin and no wrinkles. There are a lot of factors that come together to make a face seem young and full of energy, one of the biggest of which happens to be volume. Volume isn’t as easy to notice as something like a wrinkle or another age mark. Volume isn’t immediately noticeable, but once you see it you understand what it is and how it affects your impression of someone’s face.

Younger faces, we still have supple and tight skin, have more contours and angles which add more character to the face. These are areas like the cheekbones, the forehead, the jawline, and chin. When skin fits these parts snugly and tightly these contours are highlighted, making the face look fresh and young. An easy way to see volume is to look at a young face and notice how their two protrude cheekbones converge together along the jawline and meet at the chin, making this letter V-like in shape.

Older faces don’t have this. The saggy skin no longer hugs these contours tightly and as a result, flaps downwards. This is why you’ll notice that certain older individuals will have extra flaps of skin hanging from their jaw; this is because their skin has lost so much of its volume, that it can no longer stay tight to the face. This is how volume works and Juvederm is able to restore it to make a face look younger.

How Juvederm Works

Juvederm being the type of dermal filler, can accomplish many different tasks when it comes to de-aging a face. Dermal fillers are used to lift the skin and tighten it in specific areas of the face to make it look younger. This can be done on many different parts, anywhere from the forehead to the area around the lips. 

This is why with just a few injections of Juvederm, the skin can be lifted and the volume will be restored, as the skin tightly hugs the parts of the face which give it that extra contour to make it look younger and so much more fresh. The injections are very small and very quick, making them very painless and the procedure relatively short period if you’re worried about any kind of uncomfortable sensations, you have nothing to worry about since the specialist will apply numbing cream on the face before with the procedure to make sure that you don’t feel a thing.

Most clients report feeling a little tugging as the needle goes in and out of the skin, but other than there is no pain whatsoever with the procedure going by quickly and very cleanly. The Juvederm compound is then injected into certain parts of the face where after a short period of time it will position itself in a way that will lift up the skin above, stretching it out and tightening it.

After the Treatment

Immediately following the treatment you will already see some kind of results, in the form of your face being a lot smoother than you remember it period initially you’ll feel a little numbing sensation as the numbing cream wears off as well as your face getting used to the compound.

Within the first week, however, all the numbing and redness and swelling will have disappeared leaving behind smooth skin with no wrinkles. But this is not the end of your Juvederm journey. The compound still needs a little time to set into its final form and you’ll need to be a little more patient if you want to see the conclusive results. In any case, however, expect to notice a major difference that is very clearly visible.

You’ll also be needing guidance and assistance after the treatment as well. Sure, the procedure is rather quick and it’s very safe, but you’ll still need some extra advice for any questions or concerns you may have after the treatment. And a good clinic will need to provide you with this kind of support along with the quality treatment.

If you live in the NYC area, then Skinly Aesthetics is just the spa for you if you’re looking for not only reasonably priced and professional cosmetic treatments, but also all the help you’ll need before, during, and after the procedure. Their Juvederm NYC treatment plan gives you not only a reasonably priced opportunity to try out the compound for yourself but is also super effective and very much safe.

Why It’s So Damn Satisfying To Peel Your Sunburn

Sunburn We’ve all probably peeled miles worth of skin in our lifetime, but what made it feel so relaxing? It’s got to be some kind of natural need to stay clean. You definitely don’t want to let that nasty stuff fall off on its own! It’s a totally controversial topic for most doctors. Should you scrub that flaky skin off? Is it better just to leave it alone? Let’s look at both sides, and we’ll find out for ourselves!

Why You Shouldn’t Pick At It

Sunburn happens when the harmful rays of the sun damage you’re top-layer of skin. It’s not really burning us like when we touch a hot stove. It’s all those light-waves that get absorbed from being outside. Your body is basically shedding all of the dead skin cells that got killed from too much sunshine. We should think of it as a big blister. You wouldn’t want to keep picking at a scab because scabs protect cuts from germs. Leftover skin puts a barrier on your body to protect your healing skin from infections. It’s like a big band-aid.

If you’re interested in hearing more about why it’s bad to peel your dead skin away, then you should check this out. The rest of us normal people can keep reading about why it feels so good to peel every inch of it.

Why You’re Going To Peel It Anyways

Some people like to do all kinds of gross personal-grooming. I’m not really into popping pimples, but I love a satisfying peel after feeling the burn. There’s just something so relaxing about trying to pull off a huge piece of skin without ripping it! No one really knows why we love to do it. You’re sure to find lots of guesses on the internet. It could be a genetic trait passed down from your parents. I think it’s just a coping mechanism for me. It’s so nice to get over the pain of the sunburn.

The fact is that most people are just going to keep doing it every time they get back from the beach. It definitely doesn’t look good to walk everywhere with the stuff hanging off of you. It’s even worse when flakes rub off while I’m out having dinner. I just can’t stand to look at it, and I know you probably feel the exact same way. Its human-nature to clean off anything that looks unusual. We’ve always got to look our best.

What Should We Do To Prevent Infections?

You’re mom always told you to wash your hands all the time for a good reason. We both know that you’re going to pick your dry skin off, so you might as well keep your fingernails clean. Only do it after a shower. That way we can all keep our risks of infection down to a minimum. It doesn’t hurt to carry a bottle of hand sanitizer with you in your purse. The last thing I want is a rash where my satisfying peel used to be!

6 Major Enemies of Your Skin

If you like to have a beautiful skin, you should know what are the friends of your skin and what are the enemies of your skin. The major enemies of your skin health are as following:

1- Stress: Stress is one of the major causes of premature aging in your skin.

2- Dehydration: Skin needs plenty of water. So dehydration causes wrinkles and lines in your skin. It’s better to drink couple of waters daily.

3- Fatty Foods: For having a healthier skin try to consume more and more veggies and fruits.

4- Pollution: Many chemicals cause harmful chain reactions in the skin. Having foods that contain loads of antioxidants can deplete these harmful reactions.

5- Smoking: There are more than 4000 toxins in the smoke of cigarettes. So exposure to this smoke, first hand or second hand, causes premature aging of your skin.

6- Sun exposure: Not only sun’s UV causes premature aging of skin, but also it may cause some forms of skin cancer.
