People with busy schedules are hard-pressed to fit lengthy cosmetic procedures into their lives. Luckily, there are quick, simple treatments such as Juvéderm available in Washington, DC at MI Skin Dermatology Center! With Juvéderm, a younger, rejuvenated appearance can potentially be yours in under an hour.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is a popular dermal filler 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. Melda Isaac. Using a fine needle, an expert injector such as Dr. Isaac is able to pinpoint fine lines and wrinkles and inject Juvéderm with care, resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin in the right candidate.

What is Juvéderm used for?
Juvéderm 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. Juvéderm can be used to lessen the appearance of these lines, thus potentially causing years to fall of your face.
Juvéderm Voluma® XC is designed to enhance volume and lift skin in the cheeks. Juvéderm Vollure™ XC and Juvéderm Ultra Plus® XC are used to treat deeper facial lines and wrinkles. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is formulated specifically for lip augmentation. Dr. Isaac will select the filler that is most appropriate to treat your concerns and provide a natural-looking result to help reveal a more refreshed, youthful appearance.
Dr. Isaac prefers injecting Juvéderm Volbella® XC and Juvéderm Ultra® XC 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 Juvéderm as a plump lip filler or augment the lips in a way that can look completely natural.
What is a procedure like?
Treatment with Juvéderm 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.
Juvéderm is FDA-approved and perfectly safe when injected by a board-certified, experienced 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.
