Today, millions of women and men look younger thanks to dermal fillers such as Juvéderm. However, Juvéderm is not a spa service. It is a real prescription medication that should only be administered by or under the direct supervision of a trained doctor. At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners, we are dedicated to assisting patients in the Centreville area with their skin care concerns.
Juvéderm is a smooth gel infused with hyaluronic acid. HA is made naturally by the body. Because it holds many times its own mass in water, HA lubricates joints and connective tissues, and hydrates membranes. The HA in Juvéderm is not animal based, so there is virtually no risk of allergic reaction.
The product is injected into skin to fill lines, wrinkles, and folds, and add volume. It has been approved by the FDA to:
- Plump lips.
- Lift and contour cheeks.
- Smooth lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth.
In the hands of an experienced injector, Juvéderm can also be used in other areas.
There is no downtime, and minimal side effects. Depending on the area of treatment, improvement can last up to two years. With periodic re-treatment, results can be maintained indefinitely.
The Board-certified dermatologists at DANV in Centreville have advanced training in all areas of dermatology. Certification indicates that they have many more hours of education than a non-certified dermatologist, as well as extensive clinical experience. They have successfully completed stringent testing and met nationally-recognized ethical standards.
One of best reasons to seek Juvéderm treatment at DANV in Centreville is that you are probably already a patient for medical dermatology. The dermatologist knows your skin and your health background. You have good rapport, and feel comfortable discussing your cosmetic goals.
