With the help of non-surgical cosmetic treatments like Botox® and dermal fillers, you can regain your youthful appearance in no time at all. According to the American College of Aesthetic and Cosmetic Physicians, the popularity of non-surgical cosmetic treatments is increasing. If you want to get Botox and fillers soon, here’s what you should know about their benefits.
Using these injectable treatments can help prevent the occurrence of future lines and wrinkles. Botox essentially relaxes your facial muscles. Dermal fillers fill the deep and shallow lines. Typically, Botox will last for 3-6 months and filler will last for 9-18 months, depending on the product used and the desired outcome. However, with these two types of products working together, the youthful effects can last longer.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your body. The production of this compound decreases as you age. With dermal fillers, the levels of hyaluronic acid in your skin increase. Your skin glows more when this happens. Botox supports this effect by relaxing your facial muscles and preventing deep, darkening lines from appearing where the strong muscles pull.
One of the great things about good Botox and filler treatments is that the results are not obvious. Even your colleagues will not be able to tell that you had an injectable treatment done. They will merely notice that you have beautiful, radiant skin. If someone asks you if you had botox/dermal fillers, it typically means the doctor’s technique still needs improvement. There is a balance that needs to be achieved to keep the results less obvious and more discrete. These injectables are not meant to cause dramatic changes, you will only become more vibrant and youthful-looking.
Surgical procedures are usually expensive to get. They also take hours to complete and require weeks of healing. Most people don’t like them. That is why many opt for Botox, dermal fillers, or both. These non-intrusive treatments are quick and affordable. They don’t even demand long periods of recovery. Through an individualized treatment plan, you can experience their optimal effects even more. Since they have little to no downtime, you can return to work immediately. There may be some swelling or redness, but they are confined at the injection sites. These usually dissipate quickly.
Who better to do your injectables other than a Dentist? Dentists are well-trained in giving painless injections and well-educated in facial anatomy. Since dental re-care appointments are typically every 3-6 months for check-ups and cleanings, it’s easy to stay on track with your injectable appointments at the same time you’re in the office. Not only is it convenient to match up your appointments in this way, but it’s also very discrete.
Botox can help relieve headaches and pain attributed to temporomandibular joint disorder or TMD. Botox can be used to help alleviate pain caused by bruxism, also known as teeth grinding and clenching. During bruxism, the teeth-grinding causes jaw muscles to become big and strong and this can change the shape of your face. Botox can help to reverse the visibility of these changes. As dentists, a big part of our job is performing smile makeovers. Smiles consist of not only the teeth but the lips as well. Botox and dermal fillers can both be used to aid in gummy smile treatment, and give you the perfect pout to take your smile to the next level.
