The benefits of Juvéderm Treatment

Juvederm from a Dentist?

Juvéderm is one type of injectable, a popular variety of minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment which as you may have guessed, is administered via injection into the skin. While the thought of injections is enough to make patients baulk, the truth is that cosmetic treatments are administered using a needle that is so fine, it causes virtually no discomfort at all.

Although many people think of cosmetic injectables like Juvéderm as only being offered by plastic surgeons and other facial cosmetic specialists, many dentistry practices are now offering these types of treatment alongside their standard dental services. We are now more invested in our smiles than ever before, and countless dollars are spent on cosmetic dentistry treatments in a bid to address aesthetic issues with our teeth. This includes orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign or braces, teeth whitening and more. However, for some patients improving their teeth only goes part of the way towards helping them achieve the smile transformation that they desire. They may also have fine lines and wrinkles around their lips, deeper folds running from their nose to their mouth or their mouth to their chin, or thin lips that they feel lack sensuality and don't fit with the dynamics of their face.

Cosmetic treatments such as Juvéderm can also address such concerns, enabling you to embrace a refreshed, younger and healthier appearance.

How does Juvéderm work?

Juvéderm is a gel-like substance of which the main ingredient is hyaluronic acid or HA. HA binds to water in our skin, helping to smooth the appearance of lined and wrinkles whilst also adding volume to facial feature. This plumping helpings to eliminate lines and wrinkles and leave skin looking younger and rejuvenated. HA is a naturally-occurring substance, but something that our body produces less of as we get older. This means that without it, our skin becomes drier and capable of wrinkling and sagging, often leading to signs of premature ageing. This tends to happen on the lower half of the face and around the mouth as gravity plays a key role in the skin ageing process.

Benefits of Juvéderm treatment

By choosing Juvéderm injectables alongside your cosmetic dentistry treatments, you can enjoy the following benefits:

  • Fewer lines and wrinkles

  • Elimination of deep folds including nasolabial folds and marionette lines

  • Creates volume on the cheeks and around the mouth

  • Gives the jaw added definition

  • Smoother, younger-looking skin

  • No downtime

  • Visible results immediately after treatment

  • Long-term results with Juvéderm effects typically lasting anywhere from six to twelve months before further treatment is required

  • An overall transformation in your appearance

How long does a Juvéderm procedure take?

In most instances, your Juvéderm procedure should be able to take place in under an hour, making it entirely possible for you to have your appointment within a lunch break. Although the process is painless, your Juvéderm provider may offer you topical anesthesia ahead of your procedure. Afterwards, you will be able to leave and go back to work or your other commitments straight away.
