Juvederm® is a perfectly safe gel filler designed to refresh your appearance and bring back a youthful look. It is an exceptionally popular cosmetic treatment that offers fast, effective relief from lines and wrinkles.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar. It has one of the cleanest, safest profiles of any cosmetic treatment and has FDA approval as a cosmetic treatment. Hyaluronic acid is produced naturally by the skin and helps maintain fullness and elasticity.
The amount of hyaluronic acid produced by cells reduces with age, which contributes towards ageing. Juvederm reasserts that balance by increasing levels of this essential component.
What can I expect in a Juvederm treatment?
Juvederm is a non-surgical procedure that can take as little as 15 minutes to administer. Provided the healthcare professional is suitably qualified and experienced it is a fast, safe treatment.
The treatment itself is quick and involves very little discomfort. We can use a topical skin anesthetic or dental block if required to lower discomfort even further. The treatment itself involves injecting Juvederm into the skin at specific points depending on the purpose of the treatment.
How quickly will I see results?
Once the treatment is complete, you will begin seeing the results right away. Best of all, maximum results can be achieved with a single treatment, meaning you get to leave our dentist’s office looking your best immediately!
How long does the effect last?
Much depends on your physiology, overall health and where you have the treatment. There are a couple of variation of Juvederm, which can also influence how long the effects last. It isn’t unusual for the effects to last up to 12 months. It is something we will discuss with you at a consultation.
Will I feel as good as I look?
We sure hope so! The increase in self-confidence is one of the primary reasons Aesthetic Family Dentistry offers cosmetic treatments. Confidence and positivity have a marked effect on overall wellbeing, which we as holistic dentists have a strong desire to promote. If you look good, you feel good, which can have far-reaching health benefits.
Are there any side effects with Juvederm?
There are no known links to serious side effects from using Juvederm. Those who experience cold sores may see an outbreak immediately after a treatment though. The treatment is not recommended for pregnant women or those breast feeding, but otherwise is regarded as perfectly safe.
There may be some mild bruising or swelling for a day or two after the treatment but this varies between patients.
