Juvederm Dermal Fillers
Las Vegas & Henderson NV
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid is a natural occurring sugar found in our bodies to replace and fill in what you have lost through aging. There are several products of Juvederm.
They all are used to help address the facial signs of aging. Each product in the Juvederm line features different bonding and concentrations of hyaluronic acid. The different products are each tailored to target specific problems when injected into different areas and depths.
Juvederm is an injectable, clear, smooth gel and will dissipate over time. Juvederm also usually contain Lidocaine (local anesthetic) for patient comfort.
What To Expect
Juvederm is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment performed right in our office. Juvederm is an injectable treatment that has the ability to reduce the appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles.
It is able to achieve this by restoring lost volume to the skin and lips. Juvederm (also called wrinkle fillers) can also be used as “volumizers,” plumping and lifting cheeks, chins, jawlines, and temples, and filling out thin lips.
The injection is similar to Botox cosmetic but Juvederm contains a local anesthetic to reduce pain and discomfort. As a dentist we have the ability to numb your mouth area to reduce pain and discomfort further.
Juvederm provides results up to a year. Side effects are rare but can include redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. Results from Juvederm can be seen almost immediately.
Can Juvederm Turn Back The Clock?
Juvederm is an FDA approved non surgical, minimally invasive dermal filler that is created with a synthetic hyaluronic acid (also called HA). Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is natural to our bodies, and it helps keep your skin healthy in a few ways:
-Maintaining moisture by hydrating our skin
-Softening our skin
-Volumizing our skin
Juvederm Vs Botox
Botox Vs Juvederm is not the question as both can work side by side. Botox has the ability to make wrinkles disappear around the eyes, forehead, lengthening upper lip to remove gummy smile, and vertical lines around lips.
Juvederm removes wrinkles in a different way by adding volume (dermal filler) to fill the lines from the nose to the lip, the lower face, outline the lips, and to fill the lips. There is no reason for a choice between botox vs juvederm as they do separate things.
Juvederm is perfect for wrinkles that are present when your face is resting, whereas Botox is perfect for wrinkles that appear upon movement.
