Botox is a purified toxin that helps halt the muscle activity in muscles of the face that lead to wrinkling and lines that make you look older than you feel. Botox is FDA-approved and well researched to be safe and effective.
The dentists at High Tech Family Dentistry have an extensive awareness of the anatomy of the face, so they are especially skilled at applying Botox injections at just the right places to enhance your look optimally.
Botox is best for horizontal forehead lines, vertical frown lines between the brows, and crow’s feet around the eyes. The softening results of the injections last 3-4 months, after which you can have retreatments to maintain your youthful look.
Dermal fillers add volume to areas of your face that have hollowed or thinned, showing lines and other signs of aging. Many dermal fillers contain a compound called hyaluronic acid, which your body produces naturally. Hyaluronic acid provides your skin with plumpness and hydration.
The dentists at High Tech Family Dentistry use their understanding of facial structure to apply dermal fillers for a number of reasons, including:
The effects of dermal fillers last six months to two years, depending on the formula used and area treated. You can receive retreatments to maintain your look. Discuss your aesthetic concerns with your dentist to find out how dermal fillers can help you.
Botox and dermal filler applications do require a needle, but it’s quite small and injections are quick. Many dermal fillers contain lidocaine, a type of anesthetic, to prevent discomfort. If you’re concerned about sensation, talk to the dentists about using a topical anesthetic or ice prior to application of the injection. Most people, however, tolerate the procedure quite well.
