What are Dermal Fillers?

Juvéderm dermal fillers in Longmont often get compared to BOTOX, but the truth is, these are two different treatments. Neurotoxin injections like BOTOX utilize a diluted bacteria to smooth-out and release tension-filled muscles that cause wrinkles, while dermal fillers offer a more natural alternative to attacking the effects of aging.

Juvéderm injections are made from hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that is naturally produced by the body and known to replenish the skin’s volume and hydration. Once injected into certain areas of the face, dermal fillers can restore the feature’s plumpness and tightness, offering a more youthful glow.

Who is a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

Juvéderm is excellent for patients wanting to address a wide range of facial cosmetic imperfections, including the ones we’ve listed below:

  • Thinning lips
  • Shallow facial contours
  • Facial creases
  • Sagging in certain areas due to collagen loss
  • Deep wrinkles and grooves
  • Scarring

Before we administer the injections, we’ll ask you about your medical history to determine if any conditions, such as allergies, neurological problems, etc. would not make you a good candidate for this treatment.

The Benefits of Dermal Fillers

  • Natural-looking, smile-enhancing results.
  • A minimally invasive treatment with virtually no recovery time.
  • Boosted confidence due to a younger appearance.
  • More affordable than more invasive cosmetic surgeries.

Dermal Filler FAQs

Are dermal fillers safe?

When administered by trained professionals, like cosmetic dentists, dermal fillers are safe. If you’re concerned about someone’s qualifications to offer the treatment, you can ask about their training and certifications. That being said, dermal fillers do pose some slight risks according to the American Academy of Dermatology, including side-effects like redness, swelling, and bruising. Typically, this treatment isn’t recommended for those with bleeding disorders, who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or are under 21 years old.

What happens if I don’t keep up with getting dermal fillers?

Many people think that after they get dermal fillers once, they need to commit to getting them regularly. However, that’s actually not true! If you decide that you don’t want to get dermal fillers again, don’t have the time, or aren’t financially ready to receive more injections, you’ll simply let the effects naturally wear off. Eventually, the treated area will return to its original appearance.

Are there any reasons to not get dermal fillers?

There are several situations in which dermal fillers may not be the right choice for you. However, it’s crucial to speak with your cosmetic dentist beforehand so you’re informed. Some situations where dermal fillers may not be right for you include:

  • You have a history of cold sores
  • You’re pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You have allergies to ingredients in fillers
  • You haven’t discontinued the use of blood-thinning drugs like ibuprofen at least a week before your appointment
  • You are younger than 21 years old (per the FDA's approval for using fillers)

At what age are dermal fillers most effective?

While everybody’s body matures differently, a great age to get dermal fillers is between 40 and 54 years old. However, the choice is yours! If you have long had traits like thinning lips, shallow-looking cheeks, or marionette lines, then dermal fillers may be the perfect non-invasive answer to boosting your confidence.

What’s the difference between dermal fillers and BOTOX?

Although they’re often mentioned together, dermal fillers and BOTOX are two different treatments. Fillers are injectables that add volume to sunken and thinned areas of the face due to the breakdown of collagen, while BOTOX is a neurotoxin injected into muscles to relax them and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. That being said, they can be used in combination with each other to have truly transformative effects without the need for extensive cosmetic surgeries.
