Now more than ever, people have a wide variety of options to pursue in an effort to keep their skin looking young, including a prescription to buy Canadian Juvederm at a fraction of its cost in the U.S. Fillers such as this injectable medication address rejuvenation beyond the worries of lines and wrinkles and focus on a more nuanced view of the skin, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD).
As people age, the volume of the face begins to decrease, causing an appearance similar to a balloon that deflates. Juvederm and similar medications help stimulate the production of collagen, which adds volume and plumpness to the skin.
Future medications may be refined enough to require lower doses, the AAD said.
Other treatments that may compliment injectable fillers include lasers to treat damaged blood vessels and skin care products that contain special nutrients. Consumers who are interested in the latter should look for retinoids, peptides and growth factors, said Jenny Kim, MD, PhD, FAAD, of the University of California, Los Angeles.
"Outstanding research by skin scientists and dermatologists is leading to better active ingredients in skin care products and advancements in filler and laser technology. As a result of these advances, there is now a range of products and treatments that can improve a person's skin, no matter the budget," Kim said.
Anyone curious about what would work best for them should discuss options with their dermatologist.
