Juvederm For Patients At Marblehead Dental

Juvederm, which is an FDA approved injectable gel filler, softens deep folds in the skin and reduces wrinkles in the facial area. Juvederm is made by the creators of Botox, it is a substance that is made of hyaluronic acid, which already exists in the skin.

One of the advantages of having this done in a dental office is that Dr. Selesnick, is able to provide local anesthetic when administering Juvederm treatment. A modified dental block is used for painless injections in  sensitive areas of the face. Smile lines or creases in the skin from the corners of the nose down to the corners of the mouth, develop over time, and this is what often makes you look older than you really are.

Juvederm is a non-surgical solution designed to remove wrinkles and lines from around the mouth, lips, and nose. In as little as 20 minutes you can say goodbye to years of smile lines like parentheses and hello to a more stunning appearance.

Juvederm contains hyaluronic acid, something that is already present in the skin, it will eventually absorb into the body. This will typically happen in around 6 to 9 months. If you desire to maintain the youthful appearance, you must get repeat injections.

These include:

  • Cheeks
  • Lips
  • Lines from the nose to the mouth
  • Lines below the lip corners
  • Area around the orbital rim

The look that Juvederm creates is similar to Botox, and is always natural and smooth while the skin will look and feel more youthful. Contact us to schedule an appointment or to learn more about Juvederm or Botox from Marblehead Dental.
