Great news for those who want their skin to look their best – the ‘next-generation’ of hyaluronic acid dermal filler family of products are making their way from Europe to the United States. The newest are Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus and they are now available at Crutchfield Dermatology. These two new fillers are offered by Allergan, the maker of Botox Cosmetic. Juvederm products have been used world wide for almost 10 years and mimic a natural sugar based gel found in the human body. Juvederm is available in two forms, Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus. They are new (hyaluronic acid) competitors and similar to the hyaluronic acid Restylane, the current leading filler for facial wrinkles. Crutchfield Dermatology has more experience with Juvederm than any other clinic in the United States and was one of the pioneer participants in the JET study, one of the first studies to evaluate the effects of Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus in the United States.
I combine filling agents like Juvederm, Juvederm Plus, and Restylane with other treatments including Botox Cosmetic, light chemical peels, lipodissolve/mesotherapy, Javani microdermabrasion, and facial laser treatments utilizing the latest aesthetic facial lasers (like the Aramis and Pixel lasers) for "total facial rejuvenation." I like the hyaluronic fillers because they mimic a naturally occurring substance found in the human body, so no allergy testing is required. I believe the operative phrase in leading edge cosmetic dermatology is “less-is-more”. I like to combine several smaller treatments, all of which have great effect, to produce super outcomes. I smooth out wrinkles and make the lips look luscious. The treatment also works great to eliminate unwanted “bags under the eyes”, too. I also treat facial scars, from accidents to dogs bites to acne scars. The results are nothing short of impressive and dramatic. I don’t want people to look younger than their age, I just want them to look the very best that they can for their age.
