What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a dermal filler that can be used to create a more shapely smile. This particular injectable filler is often used to reduce the lines and nasolabial folds around the mouth. For patients who have issues with asymmetry, Juvederm is ideal in creating a more uniform appearance. The injections are safe and effective, and the results can last for months.
Why is Juvederm needed?
When undergoing cosmetic treatment, you know how important it is for your teeth to look bright, white and healthy. When people look at your smile, they aren’t just noticing your teeth. If you have deep lines and wrinkles around the mouth or if your lips are uneven, this can put off feeling good about yourself. This is why Juvederm is ideal for reducing wrinkles and folds as well as helping with lip augmentation.
Hands down the BEST dentist I have ever been to! Not only is he thorough and meticulous, but he is also extremely knowledgeable and professional. He explained my procedure and put me at ease instantly. The office staff is warm and accommodating – my experiences at other dentistry offices made me weary of trying someone new and Dr. Max Zlasavsky and staff changed my outlook and I will never see another dentist after this!
Who is a candidate for Juvederm?
Most of our patients are good candidates for Juvederm treatment. Prior to having you come in for the injections, we will go over all medical and health history. Juvederm is best suited for adult patients who aren’t allergic to any of the ingredients within the injection itself. It is important to realize that Juvederm results are not permanent and retreatment after several months is needed to maintain results.
What happens during the Juvederm procedure?
The first step is to have you come into our office and sit comfortably in one of our dental operatories. We apply a topical analgesic to the area where the injections will be given. We then inject Juvederm dermal filler around the mouth and into the lips. This can help to plump up these areas and create a more youthful appearance. It is common to have some slight swelling and discomfort for the first day or two following the injection. You can expect the results to last for many months before retreatment will be needed.
