Juvederm is a family of products that are formulated to help people address signs of aging in the face. It is a smooth, gel-like hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. If you are interested in Juvederm treatment, schedule a consultation with Dr. Barbara Wetmore at Sunflower Dental Spa and discuss your goals and expectations. The procedure is minimally invasive and can typically be done on the same day as your consultation. The target areas for Juvederm treatment include cheeks, lips, and around the nose and mouth.
Juvederm adds volume to the facial tissue by stimulating the production of collagen using hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the human body. Over time, hyaluronic acid and collagen production decreases, which causes wrinkles and sagging.
During the procedure, the areas to be treated will be marked. The injections will be administered, and the area will be massaged to ensure even distribution and reduce the risk of swelling. Depending on the area being treated, the entire procedure takes 15 minutes to 1 hour. There is a small amount of lidocaine in the injections to minimize pain/discomfort during the procedure.
Recovery time is minimal. Patients are advised to avoid exposure to the sun, alcohol, strenuous activity, and wearing makeup for at least 24 hours following treatment
One of the best things about Botox is that the procedure only takes a few minutes, and you see results within a few days. It is a "quick fix", allowing patients to enhance their appearance in-between errands or on their lunch break.
Botox is an injectable treatment, making it less scary than other cosmetic procedures that require surgery or other invasive steps. Therefore, patients will not have extensive recovery times or significant side effects. Also, the risk of serious problems is low.
Botox is not permanent, but does last up to 3 to 4 months, which is longer than some of the other options. It is important to choose a competent provider such as Sunflower Dental Spa. Dr. Wetmore is qualified and certified to administer Botox treatment.
Botox is often used to treat wrinkles around the eyes and lips, between the brows, and laugh lines around the mouth. It reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles and prevents them from getting worse.
Botox treatments are budget-friendly compared to other options.
Botox ranges between $250 to $600+, depending on the area being treated. Since this is a cosmetic procedure, insurance typically does not cover treatment. However, we do offer financing through CareCredit, allowing you to take advantage of this treatment and spread out payments to fit your budget.
Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding or have a neurological disease should not undergo Botox treatment. Also, since Botox doesn't work for all wrinkles, make sure to discuss your options with Dr. Wetmore during your consultation. If you are allergic to the protein in cow's milk, you should not get Botox injections.
While Botox is relatively low risk, there are a few potential side effects to be aware of:
Dysfunction in speech/swallowing
Temporary distortion of smile
Temporary weakness in chewing
