Men and women in the Tampa, Florida area fight daily against fine lines and wrinkles brought on by aging. It can be a misconception that the only way to battle these is by getting a surgically invasive procedure such as a face or brow lift. Dermal fillers are a very effective and safe alternative that patients of Gentle Dentistry have come to love. Juvederm is an injectable filler that you can work into your next appointment with Dr. Angela Rasmussen. If you have never heard of the Juvederm treatment, here are some basics about this groundbreaking treatment.
Juvederm refers to a family of injectable fillers that have proven to be highly effective at restoring the look of youth to those who receive it. This look is achieved by restoring lost volume and smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. The primary active ingredient in Juvederm is hyaluronic acid, a substance your body produces naturally but not produced at as high a level as you age. Hyaluronic acid is what gives your skin that healthy, supple look and promotes the production of collagen.
Unlike some other injectable neurotoxins, which can take anywhere from 7 to 10 days to prove effective, Juvederm produces results immediately. Most patients who elect to undergo the Juvederm treatment report that they tolerate the treatment reasonably well due to Juvederm containing lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, which helps minimize discomfort. Once the treatment is complete, there can be some minor bruising and swelling at the injection sites, but this should fade quickly.
Juvederm can address signs of aging in several areas, providing our patients with a stunning and youthful appearance. Areas commonly treated with Juvederm can include:
