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. Patients often use these injections to target fine lines and wrinkles on the facial area to turn back time. At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, patients can enjoy some of the top dermal fillers including:
Juvéderm is a popular choice for many of our patients, as it has a variety of uses on the facial area. This injection is approved for treating moderate to severe wrinkles on the face, including the nasolabial folds, lip lines, and crow’s feet. This injectable is extremely versatile, making it the first choice for our team.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is an injectable gel that is formulated with hyaluronic acid. This acid is naturally occurring in the body, making it a wonderful element for enhancing the texture of the skin. Juvéderm is injected directly into the areas of concern to add volume and smooth the skin, reducing and sometimes eliminating the appearance of wrinkles altogether. This method of addressing fine lines and wrinkles is not only minimally-invasive but can also eliminate the need for plastic surgery treatments such as facelifts.
What can I expect during my treatment?
Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia provides injections right in the office for patients to address the signs of aging. First, patients will book a consultation appointment with the team to educate themselves on the cosmetic injectables available in the office and choose the one that is best suited for their specific needs. Once patients have made a choice, they relax in the treatment chair while the doctor assesses the areas of concern. Juvéderm is injected directly into these fine lines and wrinkles within minutes. Because the treatment is minimally-invasive, patients do not have to worry about healing or recovery time. They can return to their day without interruption.
How long does Juvéderm last?
Most patients will be able to enjoy the benefits of Juvéderm injections for many months. In fact, reinjection to maintain the results are often not required for approximately six months after the first treatment. This long-lasting solution is an affordable way for patients to look younger without going under the knife for surgeries.
Who is a candidate?
Most patients who are interested in turning back the hands of time with immediate results are considered appropriate candidates for Juvéderm injections. There are not any allergy concerns, making it easy for patients to enjoy treatment without any reactions. There are some side effects that can occur after the injections, but these are minor and short term. They include soreness, redness, and bruising at the injection site.
What other options are available?
At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, we offer several different solutions for our patients to consider. Not only is Juvéderm available, we also offer other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers such as Perlane and Restylane. Additionally, we offer neuromodulators that can be used for treating fine lines and wrinkles, namely Botox. Patients who have a variety of imperfections on the face may want to combine neuromodulators and hyaluronic acid dermal fillers for a “liquid facelift.” This is a wonderful way to improve several areas at once in a single appointment.
Why might I consider Juvéderm?
Patients who are over 30 naturally begin to lose the stores of collagen and elastin that keep the face firm and wrinkle-free. As this happens, skin laxity develops and causes the formation of fine lines and folds that can contribute to an aging appearance. We work hard to provide solutions for those who are ready to turn back time. Many patients find that Juvéderm is a more affordable and effective alternative to a full facelift and other plastic surgery procedures.
