Dr. Cheryl Burgess of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery is a board certified dermatologist in the Annapolis area who provides a wide array of treatments for aesthetic and medical purposes. When patients consult with her on anti-aging solutions, they are often introduced to the benefits of Juvéderm treatment.
Juvéderm treatment is one way for patients to enjoy smoother, more youthful skin without having to undergo extensive plastic surgery. Dr. Cheryl Burgess uses Juvéderm and other dermal fillers so patients can enjoy immediate results and decreased depth of fine lines and wrinkles.
Juvéderm is an injectable gel that is made of hyaluronic acid and is used to add volume into the wrinkles, folds, lines and creases of the face. A dermatologist will examine patients initially to determine if they can benefit from treatment and will discuss with them the many options available to them that will fit their budget and their lifestyle. In many cases, Juvéderm may be the most effective way of combating the signs of aging for patients who do not want to deal with downtime associated with more invasive procedures.
Dr. Cheryl Burgess then examines the areas of concern and injects the filler into the specific lines and wrinkles that need to be reduced in depth. The gel immediately plumps the area and gives patients a dramatic improvement in just a few minutes. While patients may notice some redness and tenderness in the area after the injections have been done, this is minor and will subside within a day or two. Dr. Cheryl Burgess makes sure she educates patients on what they can expect after their procedure. Patients who have Juvéderm injections completed are able to leave our facility with a more youthful appearance!
