Injectable Fillers in Washington DC
As we age, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish. Over time wrinkles and folds form. Dermal fillers and injectables help to restore volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like “smile line” and “parentheses”–the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth.
Many of our patients choose injectable filler treatments to address these problem areas. Safe and effective, these treatment options are among the fastest-growing nonsurgical aesthetic procedures in the United States.
We offer the following filler options:
Juvéderm® INJECTABLE GEL: INSTANT GRATIFICATION
Juvedérm, a “next-generation” dermal filler, is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. The injection process usually takes around 15 minutes and the results are immediate. No allergy skin test is required beforehand and there is virtually no recuperation time. Many of our clients with daytime appointments resume their normal activities immediately following the treatment. Juvéderm treatments are usually repeated every six to nine months.
VOLUMA® XC Volumizing Injectable Gel
Juvéderm VOLUMA XC is the first and only injectable filler FDA-approved to specifically treat volume loss in the cheeks. This effective injectable gel is formulated using hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body that is depleted as you age. It also includes lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, to ensure your treatment is as painless as possible. Results can last for up to two years.
Lip Plumping with Juvéderm
If you’re concerned with fine lines around your mouth, lack of lip definition, or thin lips, Juvéderm can help! The same filler that can add volume and smoothness to your face is also a great option for enhancing your lips and providing a pleasing and well-defined lip line. Because Juvéderm contains naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, it is an ideal choice for lips, which can be sensitive to synthetic products.
