Juvéderm filler for addressing volume loss

Men and women in Tampa, Florida, who want to combat fine lines and wrinkles caused by the natural aging process may incorrectly believe that surgical interventions such as facelifts and brow lifts are the only way to smooth their skin. Fortunately, there are nonsurgical options available for patients to consider. At Gentle Dentistry, Drs. Loc Tong and Angela Rasmussen are pleased to provide Juvéderm® dermal filler injections that can be incorporated into a patient’s upcoming dental visit to improve their appearance.

What is Juvéderm®?

Drs. Tong and Rasmussen describe the Juvéderm® injectable as a dermal filler to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles and help patients achieve a more youthful look. In addition to addressing fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face, this hyaluronic acid gel can also improve volume loss in the cheeks and increase the pout as a lip filler.

Why might I choose Juvéderm®?

Juvéderm® has been around for many years and is approved by the FDA for cosmetic use. This gel-like injectable can be administered directly into areas of concern to provide instant volume and lift. Doing this can turn back the hands of time, allowing patients to look more youthful in a single visit.

Juvéderm® is minimally invasive and doesn’t require surgery, allowing patients to avoid scarring and the risks of infection that come with other surgical treatments available with a plastic surgeon. Juvéderm® is also highly affordable, making it attainable for patients on a tight budget.

How long does Juvéderm® last?

Most patients will find that the results of Juvéderm® will last six to nine months before the treated folds and wrinkles redevelop. We encourage patients to come in at this interval for injections to maintain the results over time.
