As skin ages, it begins to lose collagen filled with hyaluronic acid (HA). Collagen and HA add structure and volume to the face, therefore a lack of HA causes the skin to sag and wrinkle. That’s where dermal fillers come into play.
Dermal fillers are smooth injectable gels made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers add volume to these deficient areas to restore your face to a more natural youthful appearance. If you are seeking to correct facial areas of concern cost effectively and without surgery, dermal fillers may be right for you.
In just one short appointment, you will immediately see the esthetic results, which last up to six months.
Dentists are uniquely suited for providing Botox and dermal filler treatment. They are skilled at assessing the balance and overall aesthetics of the face and have had extensive training in the anatomy of the head and neck.
Botox is composed of botulinum toxin, a form of a purified protein used to treat a number of cosmetic and dental issues. It is injected into the facial muscles and blocks the nerve transmission to those muscles. As a result, the dynamic motion in the skin is relaxed, allowing the wrinkles to smooth and disappear. Common injection sites include the forehead, the area between the eyebrows, the corners of the eyes, and the sides of the chin.
For patients wishing to erase the signs of age and enjoy a more youthful appearance, Botox injections effectively treat facial wrinkles and lines, minimizing and sometimes eliminating them altogether. The procedure is quick, requires no anesthesia and takes anywhere from a few days to a week to take full effect. It is a safe and well-established technique that can be performed by your dentist at Wehby Facial & Dental Aesthetics. Dentists are uniquely suited for providing Botox treatment.
