Juvéderm

Wait a minute—you can get Juvéderm at the dentist's office? Yes you can! Dentists already have extensive knowledge in facial muscles and tissues. Additionally, dentists in any specialty are often particularly skilled in delivering virtually painless injections.

Juvéderm is an FDA-approved cosmetic procedure, but works differently from BOTOX in that it is a dermal filler. The filler substance is made up of mostly hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a sugar that occurs naturally in the body. As we age, the amount of HA in facial skin and muscles decreases, causing breakdown and wrinkles. The Juvéderm injection literally fills in facial wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth, by adding volume to the skin and smoothing it out. It thereby restores a more youthful appearance. Juvéderm can also be used as a lip filler. The results can last anywhere from three months to as long as a year, depending on multiple factors.

Juvéderm is a prescribed cosmetic therapy and is not for everyone. Ask us for more information about our facial cosmetic services and how we can incorporate them into your office visits. We will work together to establish the best treatment plan for you.
