Turn Back Time with Juvéderm in Cleveland
Wrinkles are caused by a combination of factors including the natural process of aging, sun exposure, and smoking. Juvéderm fillers are the perfect non-surgical solution for smoothing out fine lines or deep-set wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound found in our bodies that is responsible for keeping our skin naturally hydrated, full, and firm. As we age, the amounts of hyaluronic acid our bodies produce diminishes, leading to fine lines and wrinkles in the skin.
The use of Juvéderm lip fillers in the areas around the mouth, including marionette lines and nasolabial folds, are often the most common Juvéderm fillers administered by dentists, as dental health and wrinkles around the mouth go hand in hand in giving you confidence in your beautiful smile.
Juvéderm Fillers at Beachwood Dental
Dermal fillers used in our office are made of hyaluronic acid. These hyaluronic acid fillers, specifically Juvéderm, help keep skin plump and hydrated while blending nicely into the surrounding tissue. Juvéderm is made by Allergan, the makers of Botox. Other variations of Juvéderm include Juvéderm Ultra, Juvéderm Ultra Plus, Voluma, Vollure, and Volbella.
The specific injectable dermal filler used on each patient will be determined by our consultation, where we discuss the areas to be treated and our goals for treatment. Juvéderm is also infused with lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during treatment and, at our office, we can administer an anesthetic dental block so it is a quick and painless procedure!
Hyaluronic acid fillers are minimally invasive and generally very safe. They typically last anywhere from six to twelve months before the body gradually and naturally absorbs the particles.
Some of the most common side effects of dermal fillers include:
- Allergic reactions
- Bruising at the injection site
- Temporary redness
Juvéderm lip filler injections and other Juvéderm injections require very minimal downtime, allowing patients to return to work and their normal activities directly following treatment. For the first 24 hours, individuals may be instructed to refrain from strenuous activities and excessive sun or heat exposure.
An advantage to using hyaluronic acid fillers is that if there is an adverse reaction or the outcome of treatment is not as expected, these dermal fillers can be broken down enzymatically using an injection called hyaluronidase.
What to Expect During Your Appointment for Juvéderm Fillers
Once we’ve decided Juvéderm fillers are the right fit for you, here’s what you can expect during your appointment:
- We will review the amounts of Juvéderm you will receive and mark the areas to be treated.
- A mild cleanser and disinfectant will be applied to the target areas.
- We will then insert a very narrow needle containing the Juvéderm filler into the facial muscles.
- Should you be worried about discomfort during the procedure, we can apply a numbing cream to the targeted areas.
Depending on the number of areas injected, you can expect the procedure to last anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 hour. The procedure requires zero or minimal initial downtime. Minor swelling can be expected. Results may be noticeable immediately after the procedure with maximum results showing in the first week following your Juvéderm treatment.
