Restore the Bloom of Youth with JUVÉDERM®*
The effects of aging can often take away the fresh flush of youthful vigor in the face, leaving sunken cheeks, thinning lips, and deep creases in its place. As your skin ages, it begins to lose hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance produced by the body which aids in keeping skin fresh and hydrated for a plump, youthful appearance. As we age, the body naturally produces less HA, and as a result, we find ourselves looking gaunt and sallow, with lines and wrinkles often appearing around the eyes and mouth. The JUVÉDERM® family of injectable fillers is derived from naturally-occurring HA, so it restores your skin’s vitality, smoothing out wrinkles and sunken areas, restoring youthful vitality and glowing good health to your face.*
Injectable dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® are an excellent way to restore health and vitality to your facial features without undergoing and expensive and risky surgery. Drs. Burton and Reps Sundin and their team of fully-licensed and highly experienced aestheticians at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery are adept at performing facial revitalization techniques using dermal fillers, and will guide you to a treatment plan that will fulfill your aesthetic goals with a minimal downtime. With JUVÉDERM® treatments, the dermal filler is eased gently under the skin with a very small needle, causing very little discomfort, and most patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately.*

How JUVÉDERM® Works
JUVÉDERM® is derived from naturally-occurring HA, and therefore it works by restoring this vital element to thirsty, aging skin. As we age, the skin’s ability to retain moisture diminishes as the body naturally produces less HA. JUVÉDERM® acts by replacing the HA levels to the areas where your skin needs it most—hollow cheeks, thinning lips, and dry, rough patches of skin. This increases the skin’s ability to retain moisture, thus restoring to it the plump and healthy bloom of youth. JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers also “fill in” areas with wrinkles and creases, creating smooth, youthful, and healthy complexion. JUVÉDERM® comes in a variety of thicknesses in order to seamlessly blend with each patient’s skin type, and it is the only dermal filler to receive FDA verification of efficacy for up to one year following treatment (although 9 months is often more typical.)*

JUVÉDERM® fillers are usually administered during a quick, 20 minute office visit with minimal discomfort. For patients who are concerned about the possibility of discomfort during their treatment, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC™ fillers include a component of lidocaine, which numbs the injection site and mitigates any possible irritation. Many patients return to work after receiving JUVÉDERM® treatments during a lunch break, without requiring any downtime. Results can typically be seen immediately, and may last for up to a year after treatment—adding the healthy, hydrated glow of good health and youthful plumpness day after day. Follow-up treatments are typically recommended to maintain rejuvenating effects of JUVÉDERM® in the longer term.*
