What Can Juvederm Do for Me?
You may have heard about Juvederm, but did you know you don’t have to go to a dermatologist to get it? Now, your dentist, Dr. Mehr Tucker in Rockville, MD, can improve your smile and your face with Juvederm. If you are just starting to get those fine lines around your mouth, and you can feel age creeping up on you and changing how you look, Dr. Tucker can help.
Juvederm is an injectable, gel filler material that is used to “plump” skin. That means it can fill in wrinkles and lines, smoothing out your face and making you look young again.
Juvederm was approved by the FDA in 2006 for uses in plastic surgery, dermatology, cosmetics, and now dentistry. Dr. Tucker wants you to know Juvederm can help to:
- Restore the volume and roundness in your face lost to aging; Juvederm can help give you back the youthful contours of your face.
- Remove lines from your nose to your lips, called “smile lines”; these lines are called nasolabial folds and are caused by muscle contractions when you smile.
- Plump up aging lips to their youthful fullness; Juvederm improves your smile and gives you back your young look.
Your Rockville dentist will inject small amounts of Juvederm into your skin. The number of injections you need will depend on the area she treats. The injections are easily tolerated, however she can use a numbing spray or cream beforehand.
Juvederm is eventually absorbed by your body, and effects typically last six to nine months depending on the amount of Juvederm used, your lifestyle and daily routine. You will need to repeat your Juvederm treatment when you first see your smile lines returning.
