What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an FDA-approved injectable filler. It’s hyaluronic acid in a gel form, and it helps hydrate skin while it creates plumpness and volume. Because it’s an injectable, Juvederm is considered a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment. Many patients worry that this treatment may be painful, but the needle is actually quite thin and causes little to no discomfort at all.
What Does Juvederm Do?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that our bodies create. However, as we age, we produce less hyaluronic acid, so our skin tends to sag or wrinkle. By injecting Juvederm into certain areas, the hyaluronic acid helps plump the area, reducing wrinkles and making the skin appear more youthful and rejuvenated.
Many patients use Juvederm to treat their:
- Marionette Lines
- Nasolabial Folds
- Laugh Lines
How Long Does Juvederm Treatment Take?
Usually, Juvederm treatment takes an hour or less to complete. There’s no recovery period afterward, so you can return to work, school, or other activities immediately. Most of our patients are happy to know that the results are immediate, though it may take a week or two to see the final effect.
You can expect the treatment to last about six months to a year, depending on the area of treatment and your personal experience. You can easily repeat the procedure once the effects wear off. Most of our patients love Juvederm and the instantaneous results the treatment offers.
Why Do Dentists Offer Juvederm Treatment?
Juvederm commonly helps to improve a patient’s appearance. Though dentists and oral surgeons are mostly concerned with the health of our patients, improving appearance is also one of our primary goals. Many patients come to us because they want a better smile — that includes teeth, lips, and surrounding areas. We’re happy to provide a service that helps our patients and falls within our area of expertise.
