This summer, leave wrinkles behind you. Embrace summer with a rejuvenated you. With the help of Dr. Vendetti and Juvederm, you can step into summer feeling confident. A hyaluronic acid based dermal filler, Juvederm smooths moderate to severe wrinkles. Juvederm boasts a youthful and refreshed look.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring polysaccharide, present in concentrated amounts in the spaces between skin cells. Acting as a transfer network, HA carries essential nutrients from the blood stream to skin cells. Hyaluronic Acid brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple. HA can be seen as a sort of ‘shock absorber’ creating a pillow-like fullness. The benefits are numerous:

  • Hydrates and Moisturizes
  • Plumps
  • Firms

Unfortunately, as we age, our body produces less hyaluronic acid, leaving our skin to appear tired, creased, and wrinkled. As HA occurs naturally, fillers with Hyaluronic Acid—like Juvederm—offer a body-compatible option.


Juvederm is a non-surgical procedure using an injectable gel to reduce and diminish the effects of wrinkles. Primarily used around the nasal folds, Juvederm targets fine lines such as smile lines, corner lines, and marionette lines. Juvederm replaces elasticity that is lost to due to age. In addition, Juvederm:

  • Fills Mild Creases
  • Adds Volume
  • Creates Fullness
  • Softens Wrinkles

Upon being injected, the gel allows for a smooth, consistent flow that provides a both a natural look and feel. The gel acts as an inflated cushion to support facial structure and tissues. In only a short, 15-minute office visit, you will see dramatic and instantaneous results. Results typically last up to one year. You can increase the optimal effect with the addition of ‘touch-ups’ throughout the year. Juvederm contains Lidocaine, a numbing agent, to help reduce pain throughout the process. Side effects are minimal: swelling, bruising, and sometimes a few lumps at the injection site. Generally, side effects subside within a week.

This summer, bask in the natural-looking results that Juvederm offers. See what added benefits Hyaluronic Acid will have for you. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Vendetti at Virginia Surgical Arts.
