Juvéderm®: Peach Perfect

Peaches are a summertime favorite at the Cosmetic Surgery Center. Perfectly plump and voluminous in their prime, peaches have a surprisingly similar aging process as our skin.

Peak of Peach Season

A juicy inside makes for a tight and smooth outside—much like our own skin, a peach’s delicate skin is supported and suspended by a fleshy, water-laden interior. The effects of time can easily be seen on a peach that is left out for too long. Continuously ripening, the peach becomes dehydrated and loses its natural fullness from the inside out.

No longer buoyant, a peach starts to shrivel and show its age. At first, small imperfections like fine lines and indentations develop, but as the peach ripens, the skin becomes increasingly slack. Eventually, the volume loss causes wrinkles and facial hollows as the skin clings loosely to the peach.

Juvéderm is the Pick of the Crop

Much like a peach, our face loses its natural volume as we age due to moisture loss. While there is little you are able to do for an over-ripe peach, you can revive your skin with Juvéderm. An injectable dermal filler, Juvéderm is formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA). Produced naturally by our bodies, hyaluronic acid is found between skin cells and acts as an internal moisturizer that keeps the skin supple and voluminous. Plentiful in our youth, our bodies produce less and less HA as we age.

With its ability to hold 1000 times its weight in water, hyaluronic acid allows the skin to retain moisture. Rehydrated, the skin is better able to support itself and helps the skin to appear plumper with more volume.

Just like letting a perfect peach go to waste, facial volume loss can be frustrating. With the help of Juvéderm, Dr. Benien can help you achieve peach perfect skin.
