Here at Cliftonville Dental we can offer patients dermal fillers administered by qualified medical professionals. We use both Juvederm and Emervel®, both of which are market leaders in fillers treatment. Below we look at Juvederm in particular and why it has the capacity to deliver amazing results for patients.
Longer-lasting than other filler brands
Juvederm is the only filler that has been FDA-approved to last up to one year. The name for the substance that makes up the filler is known as hyaluronic acid and Juvederm consists of a higher concentration than other fillers.
Juvederm, as mentioned above, contains hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in the body, keeping our skin looking young. When we are reach our late twenties, our skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid begins to deplete and the onset of ageing begins, manifesting itself through loss of volume and wrinkles across the skin. Juvedum replenishes this supply of hyaluronic acid to the skin, restoring a youthful appearance and is known for its smooth consistency, unlike other types of filler that can be granular in sensation.
Quick and painless
Juvederm fillers contain a pain reliever known as lidocaine which is designed to minimise any discomfort; a tiny needle is used and you may find you feel nothing at all when the filler is administered. You will be in the dentist’s chair for around 30 minutes and you can return to your normal activities as soon as you leave the practice; non-surgical facial aesthetics treatments like fillers and Botox have actually been dubbed the ‘lunchtime facelift’ for this reason.
Biodegradable filler with predictable results
Unlike surgical facial aesthetics treatment, Juvederm fillers are temporary, so if you feel you might want less or more of the filler applied to a particular area the next time you visit us, it is not a complex process as it would be in the case of surgery. Juvederm fillers are fully biodegradable, with the gel disappearing over a period months and the effects subtly subsiding. Regular subsequent treatment sessions will allow the effects of the fillers to last longer, so if you’re pleased with the results it’s certainly worth looking at booking regular appointments to get the most out of treatment.
