Over time, skin loses collagen, elasticity, and volume which causes moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, volume loss in the midface, and hollowness under the eyes. Collagen production is dramatically reduced during the aging process resulting in loose, sagging skin in addition to depleted elasticity and less resilience to environmental factors. While topical products are beneficial to the skins surface, Juvederm products add volume to smooth aging lines and folds, giving your skin a subtle youthful appearance.

At Pure Bliss Med Spa we find optimal results with hyaluronic acid based fillers. Hyaluronic Acid (H.A) is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body which aids in the delivery of nutrients to the skin allowing it to retain its natural moisture and softness.  H.A. is produced in our skin and connective tissue.  The higher percentage of H.A. molecules per cubic meter of water create a thicker gel or viscosity. Juverderm products vary in concentration of H.A. and the type of cross-linking. Allergans original product of Juvderm Ultra and Juvederm Ultlra Plus set itself apart with the inclusion of hylacross. This means molecules are homologous and more uniform in size allowing for a smoother, less granular consistency. Allergan took things a step up and achieved longer lasting fillers through cross linking, known as vycross. Vycross links high and lower molecular weights. Vycross is an enhancement in technology allowing for greater mobility, decreased swelling, and longer lasting results. Vycross fillers can last 18-24 months. The best part of using a hyaluronic acid based filler is that it plumps the skin by binding to surrounding tissue and absorbing water already in the body to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Your result is a seamless and soft youthful appearance. H.A. fillers is also the safest, it is 100% reversible with an enzyme called hyaluronidase.
