Dermal fillers are injected into the area around the nose and mouth to smooth wrinkles, lines and folds. These dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM®, can restore the natural volume and contours of your face and give you a more youthful appearance. Over time, the facial skin stretches a bit, resulting in a loss of facial volume. The natural loss of subcutaneous fat in the face, as well as sun exposure, lifestyle factors and heredity, can affect the appearance of the facial skin. Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore fullness in the face. Specifically, our dentist may recommend dermal fillers if you are interested in:
- Plumping thin lips
- Improving the appearance of recessed scars
- Enhancing shallow facial contours
- Softening facial wrinkles and creases
JUVÉDERM, JUVÉDERM XC (with lidocaine anesthetic for injection comfort) and other similar products all contain hyaluronic acid, the key building block for new collagen formation. It is the progressive loss of collagen with aging that diminishes the fullness and firmness of the skin. With injections completed in an hour or less, and with care taken to blend the injected gel into the surrounding skin, there is the excitement of seeing immediate results, allowing you to continue with injections or not, depending on the look that satisfies you. Allergan, makers of JUVÉDERM and JUVÉDERM XC dermal fillers, is so confident in their products that the filler effects are guaranteed to last a minimum of two years!
Others may perceive something different and youthful about your face, but only you will know! If you would like to learn more about dermal filler treatments, we invite you to contact our office today. Our friendly dentist and team look forward to revitalizing your appearance!
