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 Washington DC-area clients choose dermal fillers and injectables to address these problem areas. Safe and effective, these treatment options are among the fastest-growing nonsurgical aesthetic procedures in the United States according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. We offer the following options:
JUVÉDERM™ INJECTABLE GEL: INSTANT GRATIFICATION
JUVÉDERM™, 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.
JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel is available in two formulations – JUVÉDERM™ Ultra for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, and JUVÉDERM™ Ultra Plus, a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles. The specific risks and the suitability of JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation. All procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications occur occasionally and do not affect a successful outcome. Major complications are rare. JUVÉDERM™ is a trademark owned by Allergan.
Fat Wrinkle Fillers
Fat and collagen fillers are commonly used to “plump” lips, fill out fine lip lines and treat the deep creases that run from the nose to the corners of your mouth. While each filler has a unique set of properties, fat has the distinct advantage of being harvested from the patient and so eliminating the possibility of an allergic reaction.
