Juvederm Washington DC
Juvederm® is an injectable filler which can improve the appearance of deep facial wrinkles, folds, lines, and acne scars, enhance the lips, and contour facial features like the chin and cheeks. Juvederm® is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients and helps the skin retain moisture and softness, adding natural volume to the face. The results are very natural and long-lasting, with the effect remaining for six months or longer.
The Juvederm product line contains injectable fillers that can be used for all areas of your face. Dr. Somenek will discuss the various options for you and explain what injectable filler would be best for the areas that need to be treated.
About the Treatment
Dr. Somenek performs the Juvederm ® injection in his office. Depending on the area being treated, the procedure can take as little as five minutes to as much as thirty minutes to complete. A topical or local anesthetic may first be administered for the patient’s comfort before injecting Juvederm® directly into the skin with the blunt tip microcannula technology that minimizes bruising and discomfort.
Juvederm® has very few side effects. Some patients may experience redness or swelling at the injection site which can last for a few days. Nevertheless, work and other normal activities can be resumed right after treatment. Juvederm® is a safe and effective injectable that can be used for all skin types and colors and does not require prior testing.
