Enjoy Long-Lasting Results With Juvéderm Vollure XC Dermal Filler

Restore lost volume to your facial appearance for a more youthful look when deep folds and crinkles have formed around your nose and mouth areas. Juvéderm Vollure XC is an injectable dermal filler to reduce moderate to severe nasolabial wrinkles and folds. It was FDA approved in 2017, and has been in use in Europe since 2013.

Vollure XC Dermal Filler
The signs of aging in this nasolabial area are often referred to as parentheses lines, laugh lines, and marionette or sad lines. These folds and wrinkles in the skin develop over time as a result of aging, a loss of your natural hyaluronic acid and collagen, and repeated facial movements that are a part of everyday life.

Juvéderm Vollure XC is a hyaluronic acid dermal gel that is appropriate for people who are over 21 years old. Not only does this product effectively smooth lines and wrinkles, but those results can also last for up to 18 months with optimal treatment, making Juvéderm Vollure XC the longest-lasting injectable filler on the market right now. This treatment is marketed by the globally known brand, Allergan, who is also the creator of other top-notch facial fillers, such as Juvéderm and Voluma.

Studies performed with patients who received Juvéderm Vollure XC injections showed that 59% of them noted a visible improvement in nasolabial lines and folds. Eighty-two percent of them were still satisfied with their results at the six-month mark, and 68% continued to be pleased at eighteen months. Allergan formulated Juvéderm Vollure XC using its advanced Vycross technology that places together differing molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, adding to the gel's effective longevity and an especially smooth result. The cross-linking used with Vycross also makes the filler suppler and easier to inject. This same technology was utilized when making Juvéderm Voluma XC to successfully increase volume in facial cheeks. Vycross also contributes to lessened side effects when using Juvéderm Vollure XC. Patients experience less swelling at the injection site because this technology decreases the attraction of excess water to the area.

Juvéderm Vollure XC is directly injected into the facial tissue where wrinkles and folds exist. There is a numbing agent, lidocaine, contained in the formula to help eliminate any discomfort during this quick injection procedure. Some of the more common side effects that may be experienced with Juvéderm Vollure XC include some initial swelling or redness and a small risk of bruising. Side effects, if any, usually subside completely within a week or less.

Juvéderm Vollure XC is an excellent dermal filler for smoothing those static lines that are visible around the nose and mouth even when your face is at rest.

Correct Skin Discolorations, 
Brighten Skin With Lytera 2.0

Lytera 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum is an anti-aging formula that helps even out discolored skin tone and brightens even stubborn pigmentation issues. This gentle yet dramatically effective formulation is appropriate for any skin type, tone, or dermal concern, and the patient results have been extremely successful.

Your skin can become unevenly discolored due to sun exposure, pollution, ethnic origins, genetics, and/or hormonal issues that disturb your natural coloring. Hyperpigmentation occurs when there is an excess production of melanin, the pigment that determines our skin and hair color. Skin discolorations that persist may be described as dark spots, sun spots, age spots, or blotches.

Fight High Cholesterol with Natural Bergamot BPF
Your body needs a certain amount of cholesterol in order to function normally. However, when you have high levels of LDL cholesterol, the excess amount can clog arterial wall linings and lessens the flow of blood throughout your body. This can lead to cardiovascular disease and an increased chance of heart attack, transient ischemic attack (TIA), stroke, or peripheral artery disease.

Some lifestyle changes can help lower your cholesterol levels. You can limit your diet to avoid eating foods that are known to contribute to high cholesterol, such as fried foods, processed foods, trans fats, dairy products, processed meats, fast food, and red meat. Instead, you can opt for cholesterol-lowering food items such as whole grains, beans, nuts, citrus fruits, avocados, and fatty fish. Other lifestyle changes you can make include getting in 30 minutes of exercise per day to help raise high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or 'good cholesterol' levels. Aerobic exercise might improve your body's sensitivity to insulin in addition to raising HDL and triglyceride levels. If you smoke, quit smoking to lower your risk of heart attack. It's also important to maintain a healthy weight.

Your physician may want to put you on statins to help control your high cholesterol. Some patients, however, do not wish to be on prescription medications when there are alternatives that do not cause the adverse side effects related to statins. Other people simply do not wish to take prescription medications when they can lower their cholesterol by making lifestyle changes and taking naturally based dietary supplements like Bergamot BPF.

People taking statins or other medicines that lower blood sugar can see a decrease in their CoQ-10 levels. Bergamot BPF helps support healthy CoQ-10 levels. CoQ-10 is much like a vitamin and is found in each of your body's cells. It helps protect LDL cholesterol from oxidizing for a healthy heart and it can also help lower blood pressure. Bergamot BPF does not decrease the body's levels of CoQ-10. Some of the side effects that can present themselves when taking statins include muscular aches and pains that can occur due to the body's depletion of CoQ-10. In addition to Bergamot BPF's ability to maintain good CoQ-10 levels, this supplement's antioxidant and inflammatory-balancing properties eliminates the aches and pains that can accompany statin treatments.
Bergamot is a natural citrus plant with medicinal properties. Bergamot BPF (derived polyphenolic fractions) is extracted from the juice of this plant and used to lower cholesterol, triglycerides, and glucose levels.   Scientific studies show that diets that include Bergamot BPF have been found to  decrease the production of the bad LDL cholesterol while increasing the levels of good cholesterol and to help fight glycemic and lipidemic disorders.

Bergamot BPF works to inhibit HMGCR (HMG-CoA reductase), an enzyme that plays a huge role in cholesterol synthesis. If you are told you have high cholesterol, you can help maintain healthier HDL levels as you support your cardiovascular system and keep up healthy levels of CoQ-10 when you add Bergamot BPF to your diet.
