People are often familiar with many of our cosmetic treatments, such as teeth whitening or even our dental veneers. However, they are often surprised to learn we offer facial esthetic treatments, such as Botox or dermal fillers. What benefits will these treatments offer? Can they also help address oral health concerns?
Frequently Asked Questions About Botox and Dermal Fillers
Question: How does Botox work?
Answer: We administer the treatment with a series of injections. The solution then relaxes muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes. We can also use this treatment to ease strain in the jaw joints related to TMJ disorder. The results typically last about six months.
Question: When do you administer a dermal filler?
Answer: We use a dermal filler to address the lines around the nose and mouth, including the nasolabial folds. We can also use dermal fillers to remove laugh lines and plum up thin lips. Results also last about six months and the treatment is administered via injection.
Question: What is Kybella®?
Answer: When fat begins to accumulate beneath the chin, you may find that even diet and exercise can make removing this difficult. Fortunately, we can use Kybella®, which is administered via injection under the chin and then prevents accumulation for a lifetime. You may need up to four different treatments over a period of four months to see optimal results.
Question: What benefits does Voluma offer?
Answer: If you lose volume in your cheeks or face due to aging, we can offer a solution with Voluma, which lifts cheeks and can eliminate lines and wrinkles. The results last for up to two years! If you have any questions about our facial esthetics, contact our office today!
