Juvéderm® is a family of FDA-approved, bio-compatible dermal fillers based on hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the human body. Juvéderm’s unique moisture-attracting properties allow it to hold many times its weight in water. Because of this, it can create an immediate plumping effect when injected into the skin.
Anyone interested in refreshing their facial appearance with little-to-no-downtime should absolutely consider Juvéderm® in Northern Virginia and Alexandria.
How Does Juvéderm Work?
Aging skin loses significant amounts of hyaluronic acid and a structural protein called collagen. In the absence of moisture, the skin becomes drier and thinner. Meanwhile, with collagen loss, the skin begins to sag, leading to pronounced volume loss. Common issues associated with these losses include fine lines and wrinkles, flattened lips, less definition in the mid-face and cheekbone area, and noticeable hollows at the temples and under the eyes.
Fortunately, when injected in the precise amounts into targeted areas of your face, Juvéderm can replace the hyaluronic acid you’ve lost due to age, filling in lines and hollows for smoother, more youthful-looking results. Over time, it can also stimulate collagen production in the skin. Juvéderm has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid of all the available dermal fillers and can last up to 12 months.
What Areas of the Face Can Juvéderm Enhance?
For Northern Virginia and Alexandria patients, Juvéderm can:
- Minimize the look of the “parentheses lines” that run from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Reduce the “marionette lines,” the downturned creases in the corners of the mouth
- Augment thin or aging lips
- Create more defined cheekbones
Anyone interested in these enhancements should consult with Dr. Desman as soon as possible.
