Patients in Reston ask, “Is there a facial volumizing treatment?”
After age 30, we can lose up to a teaspoon of collagen every year. This can be a concern for many men and women because when collagen is lost, the skin becomes less firm and supple. The result can be fine lines and wrinkles as well as sagging skin. Ultraviolet rays from the sun or tanning beds can lead to premature aging. Regardless of the cause of aging skin, patients in Reston and beyond often ask, “Is there a facial volumizing treatment?” The Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. team will respond with a resounding, “Yes.”
We offer several different dermal fillers as well as Botox. Our dermal fillers include Juvéderm, Restylane, and Perlane. Juvéderm leads among dermal fillers as the top seller in the United States. It is among our dermal fillers which contain hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that lubricates joints including the hips, knees, and elbows. When in gel formulation, this substance acts as a cushioning agent. Its smooth consistency makes it ideal for treating the cheeks, lips, chin, temples, and the back of the hands. We often use the dermal filler to reduce the appearance of vertical lip lines and laugh lines or smile lines (nasolabial folds). Juvéderm is popular because the results can last up to six months.
If you would like to explore your candidacy for Juvéderm, we recommend scheduling a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. The doctor will thoroughly examine the areas you want treated and review your medical history. You will be asked about your goals and expectations. It is important to have a positive outlook, but realistic expectations. If you are a candidate for Juvéderm, the dermatologist will tailor a treatment plan to meet your needs.
To ensure the utmost comfort, the dermatologist can provide Juvéderm XC that includes lidocaine. The area will be topically numbed before the injection. After treatment, immediate results await. There is no downtime after treatment, allowing you to resume activities or return to work. Depending on the size of the treatment area, the procedure can last up to 30 minutes. You can enjoy a treatment session during your lunch break.
Are you looking for a dermal filler to restore volume where it has been lost? If you are, Juvéderm may be the ideal treatment for you. We can also combine your dermal filler treatment with Botox, a neuromodulator used to relax muscles that cause lines between the eyebrows (frown lines).
