When it comes to getting cosmetic dermatology, you may not immediately think of turning to a dentist; however, you may want to start. After all, our Prior Lake, MN, dentists Dr. Chad Olson and Dr. Neda Falak have received specialized training and are certainly experts on the muscles and overall structure of the face. So, they also know exactly how to administer Juvederm to give you the results you want for a more esthetically enhanced appearance.
Why is Juvederm performed?
Juvederm is one of the most popular types of dermal fillers we offer here at our Prior Lake, MN, practice. Several types of Juvederm are designed to specifically enhance certain areas of the face. For example, Juvederm Voluma can help fill out the cheeks when there is a loss of volume, while Juvederm XC can be used to fill lines and wrinkles while also improving skin’s firmness and elasticity. Your goals for treatment will help our dental team determine which type of Juvederm is right for you.
Juvederm is most often used to treat,
- Nasolabial (nose and mouth)
What should I expect when I get Juvederm treatment?
We know it may seem a little unorthodox to turn to a dentist for cosmetic treatment, but it actually makes a lot of sense. After all, our dentists are experts on improving and enhancing not just your smile but also your face. We are facial anatomy experts, which means that we can provide you with amazing results and safe, effective treatment.
During treatment, we will first mark the areas we need to treat. From there, we will administer the Juvederm injections and massage the areas to reduce swelling while also ensuring that the solution is properly distributed throughout. This typically takes about 15 minutes but can take longer depending on the size of the area you wish to treat.
Just like other dermal fillers, Juvederm doesn’t have a recovery period. You will also notice results right away. Many patients maintain results anywhere from six months to two years.
Who is a good candidate for Juvederm?
You may be wondering, “Is Juvederm right for me?” Many of our healthy adult patients are great candidates for this dermal filler. Juvederm may be right for you if,
- You have lost volume in the face and lips due to age
- You have lost some skin elasticity
- You have fine lines and wrinkles around the nose, mouth, lips, or eyes
