Who are the Best JUVÉDERM Candidates?
By Stephen Rogers on February 19, 2018
Are you starting to notice signs of aging such as sagging skin or hollow cheeks? As time passes, environmental elements can take a toll on the skin. There are also changes taking place inside the body that make the skin appear less supple and full over time. At Greater Long Island Dental in Long Island, NY, we offer skin rejuvenation in addition to other cosmetic treatments. JUVÉDERM® can plump up sagging skin, giving you a refreshed, more youthful appearance. Many of our patients are good JUVÉDERM candidates and we can evaluate your needs during a visit to our office.
A Brief Overview of JUVÉDERM
JUVÉDERM is a gel-like dermal filler that adds volume and restores moisture using hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that naturally occurs in the body. Because the active ingredient is native to the body, there is a significantly reduced risk of allergic reaction. JUVÉDERM not only adds shape and contour to your facial features. It also draws water to the skin, keeping it healthy and supple.
Restoring Facial Fullness
While it is true that most people strive for a slim, slender body, the face can appear old or tired if too much volume is lost. The passing of time can eventually lead to fine lines and creases around the mouth and nose. JUVÉDERM can instantly fill in these areas to revitalize your appearance for a fuller, more vibrant look.
Addressing Hollow Cheeks
One of the most common visible effects of aging is a hollowed or gaunt appearance in the cheeks. Fortunately, JUVÉDERM is particularly helpful for restoring volume to the cheeks. In fact, it is the only hyaluronic acid product approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration to do so. Best of all, this dermal filler can achieve dramatic results without the need for invasive cosmetic surgery.
Lifting Sagging Skin
Gravity can pull the facial features down and cause the skin to sag. Couple that with the loss of collagen and moisture, and the skin becomes tired-looking and worn. In the past, many patients corrected this through cosmetic surgery, which involves removing excess skin. In contrast, JUVÉDERM plumps up sagging tissue for a natural-looking, healthy result.
Like most cosmetic procedures, patients should be in good overall health, should have realistic expectations of their results, and should not be pregnant or nursing. They should also be free of infections and should not be taking any antibiotics or heart medication at the time of treatment. Additionally, anyone choosing to undergo JUVÉDERM dermal filler injections should be at least 21 years old (although most candidates will in their 30s or older).
Patients who choose JUVÉDERM at Greater Long Island Dental can combine this treatment with other cosmetic dental treatments, such as teeth whitening or porcelain veneers, for a truly dramatic makeover.
