Traditionally, Juvederm and other dermal fillers have been used in Corpus Christi women in their 40s and older, who have lost collagen, are showing signs of aging in the form of fine lines and wrinkles and have lost volume in their cheeks. But now, more and more younger Corpus Christi women – even those in their 20s – are starting to inquire about Juvederm. Though they don’t have a single sign of aging on their faces, these young Corpus Christi women are often looking to plump up their lips to match the smiles and pouts of their favorite Hollywood celebrities.
Is 20 Too Young for Juvederm?
While Dr. Rose of Corpus Christi’s Rose Cosmetic Surgery Center will caution that it’s impossible to make a blanket statement about when to start Juvederm since every patient is unique and different. Some women in their 20’s use Juvederm to augment their lips if they have a genetic predisposition to thin lips. Young women that have such thin lips benefit from a treatment session with Juvederm giving them the feminine looking lips that they’ve always wanted, and boosting their self-esteem.
But while Juvederm is now accessible all over Corpus Christi from a variety of professionals in the medical field, it’s only after a facial examination by Dr. Rose, who has experience injecting Juvederm into hundreds of patients, that you can be sure if Juvederm is right for you.
You Should Typically Wait to Use Juvederm Until Your 40s.
Outside of lip enhancement, Dr. Rose usually recommends that you wait to begin Juvederm or any other facial filler treatment until you are in your 40s, or have begun showing the telltale signs of aging. Once Corpus Christi women are in their 40s, they have started to naturally lose collagen at a rate at which regular Juvederm treatments can address, both by filling up deep wrinkles and creases and by stimulating the growth of collagen beneath the skin.
What Makes Me a Good Candidate for Juvederm?
Typically Corpus Christi patients are good candidates for Juvederm if:
- They have the parenthesis wrinkles around their nose and mouth, even when not smiling (these are called “nasolabial lines”);
- They have lost volume in their cheeks;
- Their lips are thin and unfeminine;
- They are in good general health and not pregnant or breastfeeding;
- They are not allergic to lidocaine or Gram-positive bacterial proteins; and
- They are in good psychological health.
How Can I Find Out if I’m Ready for Juvederm?
The best way to determine if you are ready for a Juvederm experience is to meet with Dr. Rose in person. During an initial consultation, he will perform a full facial examination, take your medical history and discuss the Juvederm experience with you, as well as your anticipated final results.
