People with busy schedules are hard-pressed to fit lengthy cosmetic procedures into their lives. Luckily, there are treatments such as Juvederm available! With Juvederm, a younger, rejuvenated appearance can potentially be yours in under an hour.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a popular dermal filler treatment used to fill wrinkles and plump lips. Made mostly from a hyaluronic acid filler, a substance that occurs naturally in our bodies, its texture is easy to inject by a board-certified dermatologist such as Dr. Isaac at MI Skin Dermatology Center in Washington DC. Using a fine needle, an expert injector such as Dr. Isaac is able to pinpoint fine lines and wrinkles and inject Juvederm with care, resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin in the right candidate.

What is Juvederm used for?
Juvederm can be used to treat many kinds of lines and wrinkles, but is especially popular for nasolabial folds, or “smile lines”. These are the lines that run from the sides of the nose to the edges of the mouth when you smile. As we age, these lines become deeper and more pronounced. Juvederm can be used to lessen the appearance of these lines, thus potentially causing years to fall of your face.
Dr. Isaac prefers injecting Juvederm into the lip since it flows freely and feels soft. People with thin or thinning lips, or people unhappy with their lip shape, may be interested in Juvederm as a plump lip filler or augment the lips in a way that can look completely natural.
What is a procedure like?
Treatment with Juvederm could be the perfect solution for a busy man or woman who can only spare a little of their time. The procedure itself takes ten to thirty minutes, and there is generally no downtime required. After having a procedure done, patients most often can immediately resume daily activities. Full results may take a few days.
Juvederm is FDA-approved and perfectly safe when injected by a board-certified, experienced Washington, DC dermatologist like Dr. Melda Isaac. The procedure is generally pain-free with no anesthetic needed, although a topical anesthetic is always offered at MI Skin Dermatology.
