Juvederm Voluma

Voluma was designed by Juvederm to treat hollowed cheeks, sagging jowls and intractable nasolabial folds. It is the first filler of its kind formulated specifically for targeting the mid and lower face. It smooths, plumps and volumizes aging skin for a more rejuvenated aesthetic that will take years off of your perceived age. Voluma is often a key component of a non-surgical, or “liquid”, facelift. For those concerned about the discomfort of needles, Voluma is formulated with lidocaine, which numbs the skin for a more comfortable patient experience.

Treatment with Voluma lasts around 20-30 minutes. It’s important to abstain from using blood thinners for around 10 days prior to your appointment. Voluma requires no downtime, and typically has very minor side effects, if any. Note that by using a special enzyme, the doctor can completely reverse your results if you are not happy with them.

Juvederm Volbella

While most people are used to the idea of treating the wrinkles and fine lines that appear as a result of aging, an important new trend is to also address the aging of the lips. As the years pass, the lips may lose their volume, instead becoming thin and lusterless. Juvederm has addressed this issue by formulating a new, FDA-approved lip filler called Volbella. Volbella can help to restore lip fullness, while minimizing the fine lines (perioral rhytids) that build up around the mouth. Lip augmentation has never been easier or less invasive.

Like Voluma, Volbella uses a proprietary “vycross technology” that combines differently weighted hyaluronic acid molecules to improve the HA compounds’ efficacy. This unique formulation gives the filler more natural-looking results, and makes it easier to inject with less discomfort for the client. In addition, vycross technology gives Volbella longer-lasting results, in some cases up to 18 months.

What is recovery from Juvederm Voluma and Juvederm Volbella like?

All procedures with Juvederm are performed on an outpatient basis, so you will be able to return to work and normal activity right away. Dr. Shermak suggests that you abstain from drinking alcohol at least 24 hours after your injection, and that you also hold off on vigorous exercise for at least a few days. Clients should also take care to wear sunblock to protect their skin from harmful UV rays.

View Update Virtual Consultation

We are officially open, thanks to Governor Hogan!

We welcome new patients and are looking forward to performing elective surgical procedures, starting the week of May 11.

This is a new day, with new safety protocols. Our goal is to keep everyone safe and respect the continued risk COVID-19 presents. For this reason, we will be instituting the following protocols:

  • We will have Sandy stationed at our entryway with sterilizer and a COVID-19 survey for our new patients to fill out. Sandy will also check your temperature and collect your paperwork at the door – our medical intake form can be filled out prior to your coming to the office, or you can fill it out after you arrive.
  • Please bring a mask for any in-office visits. If you are coming for surgery, please bring a paper mask if you have one. For any other visits, cloth masks or paper masks are fine.
  • We need any patient waiting to be seen to wait in your car until we can safely accommodate you in an exam room. We need to respect social distancing and are spacing our patients out to assure safety.
  • We can only allow the patient to come in to the office for examination. Friends or family will need to wait outside the office.
  • For those assisting our postoperative patients on the day of surgery: we ask that you kindly wait in your car and we will call you in to discuss postoperative instructions.
  • I am continuing to schedule Virtual Consultations which is exciting and new! Check out my Resources section or header at drshermak.com to get started!

I look forward to seeing you soon!

 

As of July 1st, the staff members at The Plastic Surgery Center of Maryland will no longer routinely be wearing masks following the state guidelines per Governor Hogan.

All of our staff members are vaccinated.

If any patient would prefer that the medical staff member caring for them wear a mask, please let us know and we will gladly do so.

We treat patients with compormised immune systems and we need to be respectful of their needs.

We are asking patients who are not fully vaccinated to please wear masks while in our office so that we may continue to safely accomodate our patients with weakened immune systems.

Thank you!
