What to expect
Dr. Q will discuss your options with you for dealing with facial lines, wrinkles, folds and/or lip augmentation. She will help you understand the pros and cons of each treatment and make recommendations to help you achieve your esthetic goals. Before your procedure begins, a topical anesthetic cream may be used on the areas to be treated. With Dr. Q’s training as a general and cosmetic dentist, she can also expertly administer a painless dental block, achieving widespread numbing of the skin to keep you comfortable, if you prefer. Once sufficiently numbed, a tiny needle is used to inject a small amount of the Juvederm into the skin to "fill" the wrinkles and folds. The procedure takes about 30-45 minutes with minimal discomfort. Results are immediate. Juvederm and other fillers are often used in conjunction with Botox and Dysport to enhance the life of results.
