Botox and Juvederm at the Dental Office? Yes, it’s the best place for it because your dentist has the most experience with the face and lips.
The doctors at Synergy Dental Group specialize in using Botox to treat headaches, jaw tension and TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders. We can also use Botox to improve “gummy smiles” and crows feet around the eyes. Juvederm is used to treat droopy smiles by replenishing the hyaluronic acid that naturally diminishes as we age.
What Is Botox?
Botox® is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in patients from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type, which is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Botox® is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time.
Does Botox Hurt?
Our professionally trained doctors will carefully administer small injections directly into the area you’d like to improve. If you have sensitive facial areas, we’ll be happy to apply an ice pack or anesthetic cream to the area that we will be working on. Furthermore, only your dentist can actually numb the areas inside and around your lips for the best possible outcome.
The treatments will feel similar to a pinch. We will go over proper home care and after care methods with you to ensure the best possible outcome for your treatment.
You can benefit from Botox® treatments if you have:
- Worry lines in forehead
- Lines between the eyebrows
- Smile lines
- Laugh lines, from nose to mouth
- Crow’s feet
How long does treatment take? And how long does it last?
One 10-minute treatment, a few tiny injections, and within days there’s a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, lasting up to 4 months. We all go through millions of emotions every single day: laughter, sadness, anger and surprise. Your face shows all of your emotions to the world. A lifetime of emotions means your facial muscles have been put to the test and this ultimately leads to wrinkles, crow’s feet, and laugh lines.
All these signs of emotion can leave you looking older than your years – but thanks to today’s technology, we can significantly reduce their appearance on your face. With the right Botox® treatment in the discreet setting of our office, you will be able to see a visible improvement to the wrinkles on your face – and depending on your body, you will have smoother skin for up to four months.
What Is Juvéderm?
JUVÉDERM® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid: a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Our Dental Wellness dental professional gently ease JUVÉDERM® injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. We can treat your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
How long does treatment take and how long does it last?
With Juvederm® the injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate. Plus, there’s minimal recovery or downtime. So you can step into Dental Wellness for treatment and step right back into your life.
