Did you know that ailments such as migraines, temporomandibular joint disorder, and facial wrinkles can be addressed with simple injections available at your Forker River dental practice? Here at All About Smiles Dentistry, we are pleased to offer Botox® injections for patients to consider in treating various medical concerns.
What is Botox?
Botox® is an injectable treatment used in many areas of the medical field. It has helped patients with everything from overactive sweat glands to wrinkles to bladder control. Here at All About Smiles Dentistry, we use this medication, which is formulated with botulinum toxin type A, for various purposes. It is safe, effective, and long-lasting, making it often an excellent option for different concerns.
How is Botox used?
Botox® is a neuromodulator that plays many roles. At All About Smiles Dentistry, we are excited to offer Botox® injections for the following purposes:
Botox® for TMJ – patients with the temporomandibular joint disorder, which impacts the jaw joint, may find relief from pain and discomfort with Botox® injections around the surrounding muscles.
Botox® for wrinkles – facial wrinkles are quickly addressed with Botox® injections administered into the muscles of the face that create dynamic lines and folds, including forehead folds, glabellar lines, and crow’s feet.
Botox® for migraines – patients who have chronic headaches and migraines might enjoy the benefits of Botox® injections which can help eliminate daily pain medication use.
Patients with fine lines and wrinkles often want to delay or eliminate the signs of aging that slowly begin to occur for all of us. The natural loss of collagen and elastin results in skin laxity that creates fine lines and wrinkles on the face. With injectable treatments such as Juvéderm®, many of our patients can slow the signs of aging and maintain a more youthful look longer—without cosmetic plastic surgery! For those looking for a skilled filler provider in Forked River, reach out to our team today.
What is JUVÉDERM®?
Juvéderm® is a cosmetic injectable formulated with hyaluronic acid and a carrier gel. It is injected directly into wrinkles and folds on the face to add volume and smooth the skin. Juvéderm® has been used for many years in cosmetic practices and cleared by the FDA for aesthetic improvements to facial wrinkles and folds.
How Long Does JUVÉDERM® Last?
Juvéderm® is known for lasting many months before the body begins to absorb it and wrinkles return. Many of our patients have Juvéderm® injection touch-ups during their six-month dental visits with Drs. LouAnn Van Liew and Deborah Hoover.
COSMETIC SERVICES AVAILABLE AT ALL ABOUT SMILES DENTISTRY
Juvéderm® and Botox® are different types of cosmetic injectables, allowing them to be used simultaneously to address more wrinkles and folds than one product alone. Additional cosmetic services available are porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding, Invisalign and teeth whitening. Reach out to our cosmetic dentist for any questions you may have.
