Our dentist can smooth away deep facial wrinkles when you visit our practice for JUVÉDERM®. We offer this dermal filler at 21st Century Dental Care because it stimulates the collagen found in your facial tissues in order to lessen the appearance of wrinkles. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Vitaly Friedman if you would like to benefit from JUVÉDERM in Basking Ridge, New Jersey.

Dermal fillers are injected into the area around the nose and mouth to smooth wrinkles, lines, and folds. These dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM®, can restore the natural volume and contours of your face and give you a more youthful appearance. Over time, the facial skin stretches a bit, resulting in a loss of facial volume. The natural loss of subcutaneous fat in the face, as well as sun exposure, lifestyle factors, and heredity, can affect the appearance of the facial skin. Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore fullness in the face. Specifically, our dentist may recommend dermal fillers if you are interested in:

  • Plumping thin lips
  • Improving the appearance of recessed scars
  • Enhancing shallow facial contours
  • Softening facial wrinkles and creases

Many dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance that helps to restore the structure and contours of your skin. The dermal fillers also include an anesthetic to ensure that your treatment is as comfortable as possible. In most cases, dermal filler results can last up to one year after just one treatment.
