How can fillers improve my appearance?
Cosmetic dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM®, are some of the most popular products used to reverse visible signs of aging, though they can also be useful in enhancing naturally flat features and improving overall facial harmony and balance. Some of the most common concerns that can be addressed with dermal filler injections include:
- Static lines and wrinkles
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Smoker’s lines
- Lip lines
- Hollow cheeks
- Thin lips
- Sunken dark circles under the eyes
- Weak jawline
- Setback chin
How do filler injections work?
To begin, a topical numbing cream may be applied to the skin. Many dermal fillers also contain an anesthetic to further minimize discomfort during treatment. Once the treatment area(s) has been prepared, we will inject the appropriate amount of filler beneath the patient’s skin to produce their desired look. The fillers may be massaged to encourage proper distribution and create a smooth, natural look and feel.
How long do fillers last?
On average, patients can expect their JUVÉDERM results to last for about one year before they may notice their natural volume loss becoming apparent once again. Many patients choose to schedule filler injections every 9 – 12 months in order to keep their look consistent before their results begin to visibly change.
What are the benefits of getting fillers at the dentist?
You may be curious about why a dentist would perform JUVÉDERM injections. Many people are surprised to learn that dentists undergo extensive education and training regarding oral and maxillofacial tissues and structures, which provides them with the knowledge and experience needed to address signs of facial aging with injectable fillers and wrinkle relaxers (neurotoxins). Dr. Caron and Dr. Kenney have a deep understanding of facial musculature and anatomy, allowing him to create stunning, natural-looking enhancements with JUVÉDERM, BOTOX®, and other cosmetic facial injectables.
How can injectables help with dental problems?
Not only can cosmetic injectables provide aesthetic enhancements, but they can also be used to complement dental treatments. For example, BOTOX is often used in conjunction with TMJ dysfunction treatment to help further alleviate a patient’s jaw pain. In addition, adding volume to the lips with dermal fillers can often complement cosmetic dental work that was performed to create a more proportionate and natural-looking smile. If you are interested in the benefits of injectables alongside dental services, don’t hesitate to discuss your questions with Dr. Caron or Dr. Kenney.
