Your facial tissue begins to lose elasticity as you age. While a natural process, this causes your face to develop wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. Juvederm is a facial and lip filler designed to reverse these signs of aging and restore your youthful look.
Juvederm is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid to target facial signs of aging. It works by stimulating the collagen in your skin to remove wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. My Family Dentistry is the perfect place to receive Juvederm treatment since we have pursued hands-on training to provide the best experience. Side effects are common, but serious complications are easily avoided when you choose our team.
What is Juvederm?
As one of many hyaluronic acid fillers, Juvederm helps to reduce the signs of aging in facial tissue similar to a facelift. It is a dermal filler — a minimally invasive treatment that restores your youthful look without the need for plastic surgery. Unlike various types of “lift” procedures, Juvederm offers a targeted solution that lasts for 12-18 months and that can be performed in our office.
How Does Juvederm Work?
Juvederm is injectable and uses hyaluronic acid as its active ingredient. Hyaluronic acid is already a naturally occurring substance in the body, but your body produces less of it and collagen as you age. These substances are vital for preventing wrinkles and sagging skin, but they need to be stimulated as you age in order to retain your youthful appearance.
Juvederm is the perfect solution for dealing with sagging and wrinkling skin. It’s been FDA-approved to reactivate the production of collagen to add volume, fill in your cheek area, and remove lines around the mouth. Like many injectable fillers, Juvederm also contains lidocaine to help reduce pain and discomfort while being administered.

Why Get Juvederm From Your Dentist?
People often associate products such as Juvederm and Botox with plastic surgeons and medspas. While this makes sense, there are some good reasons why your dentist is the best choice. Juvederm and other fillers are a natural extension of what we do and the services we offer to our patients. Dentists and hygienists are expertly trained in the structure of the human face, from teeth, to jaws, to facial bones.

But not all dental offices that offer Juvederm and Botox are created equal. Julie, one of our own dental hygienists, had her own negative experience with dermal fillers in a different office. Since then, she and Dr. Mullins have pursued hands-on training to provide the best experience possible to our own patients.
As she explains in a recent Mission Minutes video on Facebook:
Dr. Mullins and I have traveled to the American Academy of Facial Esthetics over the years and have taken many hands-on courses. Here in our office, you will find that getting Botox and Juvederm can be a fun and comfortable experience with results that you’ll be more than pleased about.

Side Effects & Risks of Juvederm
There are some common side effects that can be expected following your Juvederm treatment. The most common is some swelling and bruising.
You may also experience:
- Minor pain
- Lumps or bumps
Fortunately, these side effects only last a short period and usually taper off around two to four weeks.
Complications can occur with Juvederm but they are usually the result of poor handling. This could be due to mistakenly injecting it into a blood vessel. Other complications due to mishandling include:
- Vision problems
These complications go to show how important it is to choose the right Juvederm specialist. While it can do wonders for removing vertical lip lines and adding volume to the skin, these improvements aren’t worth it if you have to live with lasting complications due to poor handling. That’s why choosing My Family Dentistry is your best option for dermal fillers of any kind.
