All you need to know about Juvederm in dental treatment

Dental cosmetics have improved greatly over the years. Today, you can get various methods for improving your general appearance including medication that is normally used for plastic surgery.

Juvederm is a special kind of filler that is injected into the facial muscles to reduce some of the signs of aging like wrinkles. Juvederm is made using hyaluronic acid which helps alter the facial muscles specifically the cheeks and areas around the mouth. At Philip Farzad, DDS dental clinic, we usually recommend Juvederm as one of the best non-surgical cosmetic procedures.

Juvederm can be applied in place of other dental procedures which may be lengthy and ineffective in some cases. Visit us today and get the best out of Juvederm.

Is Juvederm safe for dental use?

Non-surgical cosmetic procedures have been in use for a very long time in both dentistry and general treatment. For Juvederm, it is entirely safe for use, and most people report minimal body reactions to the substance. A lot of testing has been done for the use of Juvederm in dental treatment.

In 2006, Juvederm was approved by the Food and Drug Administration body in the US. This makes it very safe for medical use. By 2016, more than 2.4 million dental procedures were performed using Juvederm. Evidently, Juvederm is very safe and healthy for use. Visit our dental clinic at Philip Farzad, DDS to get top-notch cosmetic dental services.

How does Juvederm work?

The active ingredient in Juvederm, hyaluronic acid, is the key component in dental treatment by using Juvederm. Naturally, we have hyaluronic acid in our bodies which is responsible for the production of connective tissue which adds on to the plumpness of the facial muscles. As we age, the production of hyaluronic acid reduces significantly making your skin sag and look old.

Juvederm is first injected into the area that needs rejuvenating. The dentist will then massage the area softly to ensure that the fluid reaches the whole area and does not end up swelling.

After a few moments, the effects of Juvederm can be seen. The facial muscles become more plump and youthful. The Juvederm injection usually contains some pain-reducing substance which helps alleviate any discomfort or pain caused by the injection.

What to expect after Juvederm

After a Juvederm injection, you may experience some minimal side effects of the injection. However, they are common and usually subside within two weeks of treatment. Common side effects include redness, minor pain, itching and tenderness on the area of injection. If you get a Juvederm injection from a non-professional, you may encounter some negative side effects like permanent scarring blindness or a stroke. Always ensure that you visit a specialized dentist or doctor to inject Juvederm.

Juvederm does not require plenty of recovery time like other dental treatments. However, we recommend staying away from direct sunlight, drinking alcohol and applying make up 24 hours after the procedure. The results of Juvederm treatment usually last a very long time; from 6 months to two years.
