Juvéderm Lip Filler
As we age, our faces change in many different ways. Some of these ways are pleasing to the eye…but others aren’t. If you’re displeased with the way your face is changing, there are many different options that can help you regain your self-confidence and the look you prefer. For example, if you are unhappy with the development of lines around your mouth, thinning lips, or hollows beneath your eyes, Juvéderm might just be the solution that you’re looking for. Not only can Juvéderm help restore volume to areas of your face, it can smooth wrinkles, and it can be used in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation therapies, like Botox.
If you’re looking for the right lip filler or other cosmetic procedure to revitalize your face, Anchorage Dental Group can help. We are an Anchorage Juvederm specialized dental practice.
Give us a call today to set up a consultation, and we’ll go over all of the various options available to you.
What Does Juvéderm Do?
Juvéderm is best known as a lip filler because it is particularly helpful when it comes to restoring volume to discrete areas of the face. The results are very predictable and controllable. And while it is most commonly used for lip augmentation, it can also be used to minimize or eliminate parenthesis lines and dark hollows beneath the eyes, or to fill in cheeks to create a more youthful appearance.
Whether you want to treat only one area or several, Juvéderm can help. In many cases, your Juvéderm doctor can treat several different areas during a single procedure, making both an affordable and efficient strategy.
Uses for Juvéderm
As we mentioned above, Juvéderm can treat many different areas of the face. Here are a few of its most common uses:
- Lip Augmentation
Thinning lips are a fact of life as you age—but they don’t have to be. One of the first things that people notice about us is our smile…and when you have lush, full lips, it creates a good impression. Thinning lips tend to give the impression that you’re older than you really are. Prior to Juvéderm, many lip augmentation procedures required a long recovery and had less-than-effective results. Juvéderm, on the other hand, is a simple injection.
- Lines Around Your Mouth
Something else that affects the appearance of our smile as we age are “parenthesis lines.” Parenthesis lines are also referred to as nasolabial folds. These commonly form as we age, and are a result of the fact that our cheeks naturally begin to sink, in combination with the repetitive movement of our mouths. Juvéderm can fill these lines in—and unlike some other options, it won’t change your ability to smile or laugh.
- Under-eye Hollows
Your eyes are perhaps one of the only features people notice more than your smile when first meeting you, and dark circles under your eyes give the impression of age and exhaustion. But usually, that discoloration isn’t actually the result of your skin’s color changing. Instead, it’s a shadow that results from the fact that your under-eye area loses volume as you age. The cheek-fat pad sinks, and causes the formation of these circles. Juvéderm compensates for this loss of volume, eliminating the dark circles.
- Cheek Filler/Revitalization
As we age, we often lose fat from our face. And if you maintain a relatively low level of body fat, this can become especially apparent in your cheeks. The end result? Even though you’re exercising and eating well, your face can look sickly. Juvéderm can solve this by restoring the volume of your cheeks for a fresh-faced, youthful appearance.
Why Choose Juvéderm
There are many different types of facial fillers on the market, but at Anchorage Dental Group, we’ve chosen Juvéderm for several reasons:
- It’s long-lasting
- It presents a predictable, healthy, smooth appearance
- It can be shaped to our client’s liking
- It’s comfortable for our clients
- It’s very biocompatible
Each treatment lasts from 6-12 months, depending on the amount injected and the area of the face. Its smooth texture won’t give away the fact that you’ve had a procedure done; it’s composed of hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in the body.
