JUVÉDERM® Treatments & Dermal Fillers in Columbia & Baltimore, MD
JUVÉDERM® dermal filler is made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel that is injected into the skin through a simple and safe technique. Ideal for total face contouring, JUVÉDERM® works to restore a healthy, youthful appearance, enhance facial features and help defy age and gravity without scarring and invasive surgery. Similar to other dermal fillers, JUVÉDERM® also works to stimulate the body’s natural ability to produce new collagen for a more youthful and attractive appearance over time.
At MD Laser Medicine & Surgery, Dr. Banda has affectionately been named by many of his dermal filler patients as their “Filler Guru.” Through proper, industry-leading training and hands-on experience, he has mastered the ability to strike the delicate balance necessary to help achieve natural, youthful results.
Read what some of our patients have to say about their Dermal Filler results.
AREAS TREATABLE WITH JUVÉDERM® (Accordion 1)
JUVÉDERM® can help fill lines and restore fullness to a variety of areas on the face and body including, facial smile lines, under eye bags, Marionette lines, lips, nose, cheeks, chin, jaw line, hands and facial lipoatrophy.
HOW JUVÉDERM® WORKS (Accordion 2)
JUVÉDERM® is made of calcium-based microspheres that once injected into the skin initially perform as a filler to immediately provide facial volume for a soft, natural look. The transformation is noticeable right away. Over time, the body gradually absorbs the gel carrier, but the tiny, smooth microspheres remain. Once injected, JUVÉDERM® starts the new collagen formation process. It stimulates collagen production in your own body and encourages collagen growth around the injection site.
HOW JUVÉDERM® TREATMENT IS PERFORMED (Accordion 3)
JUVÉDERM® is injected into the skin using a needle, which allows for a simple, safe, quick and minimally invasive outpatient procedure. Treatment is typically takes place in a physician’s office with the use of a local anesthetic. For optimal results, JUVÉDERM® treatment should be performed by a trained physician as is the case at MD Laser Medicine & Surgery.
TREATMENT PROTOCOL (Accordion 4)
Many patients will achieve their desired result after just one treatment, which may last nine months to one year, or longer. Individual results and treatment efficacy will vary depending on age, skin type, lifestyle and metabolic rate. While JUVÉDERM® is not permanent dermal filler; results are relatively long-lasting. The tiny, calcium-based microspheres in JUVÉDERM® eventually break down into calcium and phosphate ions. These ions are safely and naturally absorbed into your body, leaving your own newly produced collagen in place.
RECOVERY (Accordion 5)
Most patients experience little to no downtime and return to normal activities almost immediately following JUVÉDERM® treatment. Other patients may need some downtime for recovery, depending on the area(s) treated. By 24 hours following treatment, any swelling and redness usually will have subsided in most patients.
RESULTS (Accordion 6)
JUVÉDERM® results are immediate and continue to improve over time as it stimulates your body to produce new collagen. Many patients will achieve their desired result after just one treatment, which may last nine months to one year, or longer. To ensure your complete satisfaction, a follow-up visit, where a touch-up treatment is performed may be recommended.
