Juvederm® Facial Filler
The results of aging bring about not only wrinkles but loss of collagen, worsened contours, skin thinning and elasticity. Facial features once accentuated by fullness can become marked by more severe contours and thin skin. At Herndon Dermatology, we are able to help patients by adding youthful volume to the face. Fillers are an ideal way of achieving the desired result. The procedure can be performed with minimal to no downtime and without the expense associated with surgery. Last year, more than 1.8 million Americans received a facial filler treatment.
Facial fillers are injectables that restore the volume to the face, making one look a lot younger. It corrects grooves, deep smile lines from the mouth, jaw line to the lip borders.

The most popular of facial fillers are hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. HA occurs naturally in skin and these building blocks deplete as we get older. When injected into the skin, the HA attracts water to the site resulting in a look that is soft and natural. HA fillers are reversible, have a low risk of side-effects and the results are long lasting. While fillers are a safe solution for someone wanting to “freshen” his/her look, the outcome greatly depends on the experience and skill of the injector.
