In recent years, Botox and fillers have become increasingly popular amongst many men and women. At Ware Family Dental, we understand the growing interest of our patients’ desire to have a beautiful skin. Fortunately, the rapid growth in cosmetic type services has made cosmetic procedures more affordable than ever before!
Botox is an FDA approved purified protein which is injected into targeted muscles and temporarily blocks nerve signals that cause muscle movements, essentially relaxing the muscle which reduces or eliminates fine line and wrinkles.
Within 3-5 days of the Botox injection, the treated facial muscles become temporarily relaxed, causing the overlying skin to lay flat and unwrinkled. The untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion allowing facial expressions to be unaffected.
Botox injections only take a few minutes and will remain effective for approximately 3 months. With regular treatments, Botox can help train your facial muscles to reduce wrinkles and facial pain for longer periods of time.
Millions of people suffer from TMJ syndrome, chronic migraine, headaches and other types of facial pain. You may have tried a number of different treatments for facial pain relief that have had little success.
Botox can be very effective in treatment of facial pain disorders when used in conjunction with other treatments.
Because Botox is a temporary treatment, for your convenience, these treatments can be scheduled to coincide with your other routine appointments.
As skin ages, it begins to lose a substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). This substance adds structure and volume, and a lack of HA causes skin to sag and wrinkle. That's where dermal fillers come into play.
Unlike face lifts that stretch the skin, dermal fillers are smooth, injectable gels made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. The use of dermal fillers adds volume for a more natural, youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers are a simple and safe prescription product used to restore volume to the areas around the mouth, adds fullness to the lips, balances uneven lip lines, erases the downward frown lines at the corners of the mouth, as well as fills in wrinkles/creases in cheek areas, and raise scar depressions.
The procedure takes 30-45 minutes, leaves no marks or scars, and the results can be seem immediately. The effects of the treatment typically last 6-12 months.
