Juvederm is a FDA approved dermal filler from Allergan, Inc.. It is the only Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler FDA approved to last up to one year, providing patients with a smooth, long-lasting correction of facial wrinkles and folds in our Northern Virginia clients. It contains the highest concentration of non-animal based, highly crossed-linked hyaluronic acid of any current available dermal filler. Juvederm Injections are commonly used to smooth out face wrinkles, plump lips, and correct acne scars.  It also can reduce lines on the forehead and brow, plump eyebrows or temporal region, fill in under eye hollows, enhance cheek volume and jawline, soften scar, and reduce aging appearance of hands.

Juvederm and Botox Manassas Va

Juvederm presents itself not only as an alternative to Botox, but also as an accompanying treatment. Botox is famously known to relax the facial muscles, which gives the skin a smoother appearance but doesn’t always get rid of the more pronounced folds and wrinkles. Juvederm claims to provide a very smooth and natural look that is also superior than other dermal fillers that use collagen.

Smoothing wrinkles and folds or giving your lips a fuller, more sensuous form can be easily accomplished using Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus.

Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus are gels created from stabilized hyaluronic acid, a natural material found in our own bodies. These gels bind with water then slowly break down and are then absorbed by the body naturally. In the skin they create volume, resulting in a natural, youthful appearance. Because they do not need skin testing and last longer than collagen, and are safer and more natural appearing than many “permanent fillers” such as silicone. Most experts agree that hyaluronic acids are the products of choice for shaping lips.

Juvederm Ultra is used for wrinkle correction and lip enhancements. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a thicker product and is used for shaping facial contours, correcting deep folds and for volume augmentation of the lips. Results from these products last twice as long as collagen and Cosmoplast and typically 1 month longer than Restylane and Perlane. On average lip treatments last about 6 months, while smile lines and folds can last up to one year or longer.
