Juvederm Treatments and Facial Fillers in Washington, DC
With age our skin does change. As time rolls on, our natural volume in our youthful skin begins to breakdown while wrinkles and folds begin to form. Finally, we live in a time where this does not just have to be accepted. Dermal fillers are a safe and nonsurgical option to replace the loss of volume to the skin with correction of moderate to severe facial, folds, wrinkles and smile lines. Hyaluronic fillers are also used for lip enhancement.
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler that is FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe wrinkles. Juvederm offers instant and long-lasting results, with the effects of the filler lasting up to one year for many patients. The dermal filler procedure is safe and non-surgical and can be performed easily in a single, brief visit. Radiance Medspa in Washington, DC offers a team of skilled medical professionals and estheticians who are experienced in offering a wrinkle treatment to patients. We also perform the cannula method of injecting known to decrease discomfort and swelling. Juvederm remains the first non-surgical hyaluronic-acid dermal filler approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles. If you are considering facial fillers to treat your wrinkles, Juvéderm™ may be the choice for you. Our skilled estheticians in Washington, DC will review your aesthetic needs and determine the best wrinkle treatment for you.
What is Juvéderm™?
Juvéderm™ is a hyaluronic-acid-based facial filler used to smooth out moderate to severe wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body and is commonly used to mitigate the effects of aging.
Juvèderm™ injectable gel has been approved by the FDA as a “next-generation” facial filler. The popular, smooth gel formula helps to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “nasolabial folds” (the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Juvèderm™ is a gel made of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases wrinkle treatment injectable gel under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel – so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! Juvederm Ultra injectable gel is optimally formulated for versatility in contouring and smoothing wrinkles or folds. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a robust formulation correcting deeper wrinkles and folds. In fact, studies show superior results of Juvèderm™ compared to collagen-based dermal fillers. In addition, Juvederm injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for all skin types.
Juvéderm™ treatment takes less than an hour and can last from 6 to 12 months. There is generally no downtime and your normal routine can be resumed immediately. The final result leaves facial features looking healthy, youthful, and fuller. In order to maintain the desired results, maintenance treatments are recommended.
