Juvederm in Chevy Chase, MD
What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a smooth hylauronic acid gel filler used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and to restore facial volume.
It is produced through HYLACROSS technology, creating a high degree of cross-linking and promoting duration for up to 6 months.
What’s interesting about HA is that it’s a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume.
Each product in the Juvederm collection of fillers is made from a modified form of HA.
How Is Juvederm Used?
It is injected through a small needle for correction of wrinkles and folds.
The results aren’t just instant but they are also smooth and natural.
What Are the Different Types of Juvederm?
Each product in the Juvederm collection of fillers adds volume to a different area of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, or plump the lips.
The results are natural looking and long lasting.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Tina West will go over the various types of Juvederm with you and determine which is the best fit to help achieve your goals.
Do Juvederm Injections Hurt?
