Here at Planes Dental Arts, we know how important the smile is to your overall appearance. As a frame for your smile, the face itself has an important impact on your satisfaction with your appearance. We now offer Juvederm to help our patients reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an injectable substance that helps to fill lines and wrinkles in the face. Unlike Botox (link to Botox page), Juvederm can be used even on deeper lines, making it ideal for the marionette’s lines around the mouth.
Juvederm at the dentist’s office?
In some situations Juvederm can make a tremendous impact on the overall look of the face. For example, your Vero Beach or Port St Lucie dentist might have to repair a dental problem that has caused your face to sag. Once the teeth are restored, the skin of the cheeks and jaws may look older, and Juvederm can help to restore a youthful appearance.
In some cases, our patients request Juvederm during their regularly scheduled examinations. If you’re already seeing your Vero Beach or Port St Lucie dentist twice a year, it’s convenient to have Juvederm injections done while you’re already there.
How does it work?
Your doctor uses fine needles to inject Juvederm into the wrinkles on your face. The Juvederm goes just beneath the surface of the skin to help fill the wrinkles.
How long does it last?
Juvederm injections last for about a year. Touch-up or repeat injections will usually use less filler than your first injections.
Am I a good candidate for Juvederm?
Talk to your Vero Beach or Port St Lucie dentist to find out whether you’re a good candidate for Juvederm treatment. Dr. Planes does Juvederm and Botox, so he can help you decide which option would work best for you. You can also discuss adding Juvederm to another dental treatment when you have your initial consultation.
