Hollywood has always been at the forefront of the beauty industry. The nature of showbiz and more specifically the Hollywood movie industry dictates that its actors and actresses look their best at all times. Hollywood necessity has proven the mother of invention and innovation when it comes to looking young and beautiful. Once upon a time, the procedures taken by these stars were out of the reach of many, but that is not the case today.
In the past, there were two main options to people who wanted to maximise their youthful appearance, a facial, or a facelift. Whereas a facial provided a relaxing pampered session, it did little to revitalise the appearance. Conversely, a facelift will not fit into the schedule of most movie stars, never mind the rest of us. The emergence of treatments such as Juvederm or facial fillers provides a solution that can be achieved during a lunch hour, and without breaking the bank.
Facial fillers, such as Juvederm are designed to smooth out the appearance of wrinkles by injecting a substance called hyaluronic acid beneath the skin. This naturally occurring substance is abundant in young healthy-looking skin. Factors such as sunlight affect the production of hyaluronic acid as people age, and this is a major contributor towards wrinkles and folds in the face. Facial filler injections are usually fairly pain-free and appointments usually last between 30 and 45 minutes.
