Dr. Porter Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery is proud to announce that we now carry multiple skin rejuvenating and volumizing products from Juvederm®, including: Vollure™ Volbella®, Voluma®, Ultra, and Ultra Plus.
Voluma® is a gel typically distributed through direct injection into the cheeks for the purpose of assuaging the natural loss of volume that occurs to the skin with age. Direct injection allows for the process to be instantaneous with no down time required. After an injection of Voluma®, natural volume and glow will gradually return to the skin, effectively reducing the aesthetic effects of age by multiple years and restoring the tightness of jowl that is often only found in younger skin.
As with all other Juvederm® products, Voluma® should be administered by a trained professional. Possible side effects include redness and irritation of skin, which should disappear within about two weeks. We will discuss any necessary aftercare and things to consider during your consultation.
The newest dermal filler from Juvederm®, Vollure™ is the first hyaluronic acid-based injectable that is approved by the FDA for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds, with results that can last up to 18 months with optimal treatment.

Volbella® is an injectable gel distributed to the lips with the intention of softening and thickening them while also removing unsightly creases from the corner of the mouth. The newfound plumpness of lips can be enhanced by the removal of these lines for an overall rejuvenated appearance. Like with all of Juvederm®’s injectable products, there is no downtime after the procedure and the effects should become quickly apparent, though they will take time to manifest fully.
Volbella® should be handled by a trained professional. Our medical team is trained and experienced in this procedure for results all our patients can trust. Possible side effects include tenderness and sensitivity of the lips which typically heals within a few weeks’ time if they do occur.
Juvederm Ultra/Ultra Plus®
Juvederm® is a gel injected either into the lips or face with the purpose of remedying fine lines around the nose and mouth. The difference between Ultra and Ultra Plus is that of viscosity, with Ultra Plus being the more saturated and potent out of the two. We will help you determine which product is right for you during your consultation. After injection, our patients should be able to resume the rest of their day without a hitch, with the effects taking hold over a short period of time.
The most common side effects of the product include itchiness and swelling of the surrounding skin, which should slowly disappear within two weeks of the injection.
Our Facial Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Jennifer Parker Porter and Dr. Jigar Sitapara, have mastered the MDCodes™ technique as popularized by world renowned Brazilian Plastic Surgeon, Mauricio de Maio, MD PhD. This technique takes full advantage of the Juvederm® family of fillers, to achieve global facial rejuvenation that can be an alternative to more invasive procedures. We are excited to offer this technique as part of our repertoire, particularly for our international patients who have had previous success with the MDCodes™ technique. Want to learn more?
