BOTOX & Fillers
BOTOX & Fillers
There are many cosmetic treatments available to slow and reverse signs of aging, and did you know many dentists now provide these treatments? Procedures such as Botox and Xeomin, as well as dermal fillers, are important procedures in the fight against aging. Denthetics, LLC in Kenosha and Loop, Chicago uses these cosmetic treatments in their practice to help their patients look younger.
The Benefits of Botox
You may be unable to avoid getting older, but you don’t have to suffer from wrinkles and lines. Botox injections offer the perfect way to enjoy smoother skin without plastic surgery.
Botox Reaches the Source of Wrinkles
Wrinkles and fine lines often develop in areas where you frequently frown or contract your facial muscles. Botox injections prevent signals from traveling from your nerves to muscles, stopping contractions and allowing your muscles to relax. Once the muscles are relaxed, the skin over them becomes smoother. Botox is made from the Clostridium botulinum bacteria and is purified to ensure your safety.
Botox from a Dentist?
It might seem a little unusual to receive Botox treatments at your Chicago, IL dentist’s office, but these professionals are uniquely qualified to provide the treatments. Dentists receive specialized training that allows them to perform a variety of treatments and procedures on the maxillofacial area, the area that extends from the chin to the forehead. Thanks to their extensive experience and skill in treating facial areas, they can precisely target the muscles that cause wrinkles.
Botox: A Simple Solution for Cosmetic Issues
Botox injections are often used to treat:
- Crow’s Feet
- Vertical lines between the eyes
- Forehead lines and furrows
- Wrinkles around the mouth
Quick and Easy Treatment
Botox injections are virtually painless because your dentist uses a very small needle to inject the liquid into your muscles. You may feel a slight pricking or stinging sensation during the injection, but you won’t experience redness or inflammation in most cases. Some softening of your lines and wrinkles may be noticeable within 72 hours after you receive Botox injections, although it may take approximately one week for Botox to take effect completely. Maintaining your appearance is as easy as returning for additional injections every three to six months.
There are many dermal fillers available including Juvederm and Restylane. Juvederm, a dermal filler material, is available and can help to:
- Restore round, youthful facial contours and volume
- Plump up wrinkles and fine lines
- Smooth out skin
- Plump up thinning, aging lips
- You may notice results from Juvederm treatment immediately and the results could last up to one year.
Dermal fillers are injected using a tiny needle and treatment is usually well-tolerated. If you are nervous about injections, a numbing spray or cream can be used first if you wish.
Botox, Xeomin as well as dermal fillers like Juvederm are now available from our Board-Certified Aesthetics provider, Dr. Felicia Mata, at our Kensha dental practice, Denthetics, LLC.
