JUVÉDERM® Can Give You Younger-looking Skin for an Even More Beautiful Smile
The dentists at Greater Long Island Dental offer JUVÉDERM® to help you attain smooth, youthful-looking skin. The dermal filler is a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound that helps your skin retain moisture and elasticity. Injected strategically in the facial skin, it can replace lost volume, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds, and create a more supple appearance. With JUVÉDERM®, you can receive professional-grade skin enhancement at our Long Island, NY, practice alongside your regular dental care or cosmetic dentistry treatments to complement your smile.
Receiving maintenance treatments with JUVÉDERM® when you come in for your regular dental care is very convenient.
JUVÉDERM® is a sterile gel produced in a laboratory. It contains no human or animal material, and it has the best safety profile of all dermal fillers on the market today. Made of cross-linked hyaluronic acid particles, JUVÉDERM® replenishes this natural sugar-based compound, which is absorbed by the body over time in the natural aging process. Depending on the amount of correction desired, JUVÉDERM® is injected mid to deep in the dermis in the treatment area. JUVÉDERM® is a smooth gel with a thinner consistency than other dermal fillers, which makes treatment more comfortable. It can be administered with a thinner needle and less pressure needs to be applied during the injections. The process takes about 15 minutes , and enhancement is immediately visible. The results often look better after a couple of days, and effects can last about 12 to 18 months.
JUVÉDERM® can be an excellent cosmetic treatment for men and women who would like to improve the appearance of facial lines and creases, particularly around the mouth, nose, and forehead. Patients with severe scarring or skin that does not have sufficient elasticity are less likely to achieve good results. Used specifically to improve the appearance of patients' smiles, different formulations of JUVÉDERM® can plump the lips and fill in “black triangles,” the spaces between teeth that can occur after periodontal or implant treatment that did not preserve the papilla. JUVÉDERM® may not be a good option for women who are pregnant or nursing. Patients also need to be willing to undergo regular treatments in order to maintain their effects over time.
Benefits of Receiving JUVÉDERM® from Your Dentist
Receiving maintenance treatments with JUVÉDERM® when you come in for your regular dental care is very convenient. Also, many patients choose to combine JUVÉDERM® with smile makeovers and other cosmetic dental treatments, such as porcelain veneers, to truly achieve the most dramatic effect. However, there are several other reasons why JUVÉDERM® from Long Island Dental is a wise choice.
Dentists who can offer aesthetic treatments like JUVÉDERM® and BOTOX® Cosmetic undergo training that builds on their existing knowledge of facial anatomy and the nervous system. They are already trained in the entire anatomy of the head and neck, which allows them to place and administer these injectable treatments with extreme comfort and precision. In addition, dentists’ backgrounds include education in the proper ratio of the facial features, and how they change when patients talk and smile. This means that they can deliver enormously specialized cosmetic improvements, because they can treat the whole face comprehensively. We offer BOTOX® Cosmetic in addition to JUVÉDERM®, and our dentists can combine the two in strategic combination for optimal results.
