What are Dermal Fillers?
Even though dermal fillers and BOTOX achieve similar results, they’re not the same treatment. The primary difference is that BOTOX injections freeze overworked muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, while dermal fillers replenish collagen in areas that have lost it to restore the plump and more firm, youthful appearance of skin. Because they come in a gel solution, they can be custom-molded under the skin to target certain key areas that appear more sunken. The viscosity of the filler depends on what area of the face it’s injected in.
What is the Procedure Like?
Before we start with injections, we’ll discuss what types of results you’d like to achieve by using dermal fillers. We’ll mark the areas of the injection sites and then clean them with an antibacterial wipe. The injections are incredibly fast and only take a couple of minutes to administer. The width of the needle we use is thinner than a toothpick, so you won’t have to worry about feeling any pain or discomfort. After we apply the filler under the skin, we will massage the area and examine the results to determine whether more needs to be added.
Depending on how many injections you receive, the process typically lasts between 15 minutes and an hour. After your visit is over, we’ll clear up the injection sites and offer a cold compress to help relive any discomfort.
Who is a Good Candidate For Juvéderm?
As people age, we all lose collagen, which is a vital substance found beneath our skin that helps make it appear more firm and voluminous. The best candidates for our Juvéderm treatment are typically in their late 20s or older, and they would like to revitalize droopy and sunken areas of their face by restoring broken down collagen supplies beneath the skin. Some features that our patients are typically looking to improve with dermal fillers include:
- Thin lips
- Shallow-looking or concaved areas of the face
- Shadows beneath eyes
- Under-eye wrinkles
- Wrinkles found around the mouth and cheeks
Why Choose a Dentist for Dermal Filler Injections?
To many patients, the thought of going to a dentist for dermal fillers may sound strange; however, when you consider how many years they’ve dedicated to studying the facial structure and how each area interacts and moves, it’s actually a natural extension of their work. Dr. Calderwood has completed advanced training in providing a variety of cosmetic treatments, including administering BOTOX and dermal fillers, so you can rest assured that you’ll be able to achieve great results.
