Injectable Dermal Fillers Such as Juvederm®

Dentists Serving Patients in Sarasota, Venice, Bradenton & Nearby Areas of Florida

Injectable fillers like Juvederm® have long been a popular option for the nonsurgical cosmetic treatment to improve fine lines and deep wrinkles. Injectable fillers can also be used on your lips, cheeks, marionette lines and “parentheses”, which are the curved lines that travel from the center of your nose on each side down around your lips to provide a fuller, plumper appearance.

The cosmetic dentists at The Smile Centre are pleased to offer our patients injectable fillers alone or in conjunction with cosmetic dentistry procedures. When you combine fillers and dentistry, we can help you achieve a more youthful, strikingly beautiful rejuvenated appearance.

How Injectable Fillers Work

As you age, your skin begins to lose its natural hyaluronic acid, the substance responsible for keeping your skin moisturized and youthful. This natural part of the aging process results in drier, wrinkled skin that can detract from your beauty and leave you feeling old before your time.

Injectable fillers such as JUVEDERM® work by replenishing your skin’s hyaluronic acid. This is accomplished through small injections of biocompatible hyaluronic acid into targeted areas on your face. Patients who are uncomfortable with the idea of this placement process will be pleased to know that the doctors at The Smile Centre will anesthetize the area before placing the Juvederm®. It is also nice to know that JUVEDERM® injections also contain a mild anesthetic, which helps to make them pain free.

The primary benefit injectable fillers have over solutions such as BOTOX® Cosmetic is that they provide long-lasting results. Additionally, they can be used in conjunction with a solution of Botox Cosmetic® or Botox Medical®, which help to smooth wrinkles by relaxing the underlying hyper-tense facial muscles. A single injectable filler application can provide smooth, attractive skin for up to 12 months, whereas Botox® results last 3-4 months. In addition, unlike BOTOX® Cosmetic, injectable fillers can be used to increase the size and enhance the shape of your lips, and helps to fill out the hollow areas and even smooth out scars. In these ways, both Juvederm® and Botox® accentuate the cosmetic dental work you’ve had done.
