You are ready to invest in a more beautiful smile. But there are lots of cosmetic dental treatments to choose from. Which treatment option is right for you? Cosmetic dentistry...
We all age in different ways – and most of us have strong feelings about the signs of this aging process. It’s not necessary to just grin and bear them. Facial lines can be smoothed for months at a time – with repeated treatments actually reducing wrinkles for good. If you’ve never tried cosmetic injections, you’re probably interested in the specifics. Read on for some details about Botox and dermal fillers, and the changes they can make to your face and life.
Botox Treatment for Forehead Lines
Facial injections are a simpler way to deal with facial lines. They allow you to return youthfulness to your skin without complicated or invasive plastic surgery. Better yet, cosmetic injections are available from your talented cosmetic dentist, Dr. Baudean. No need to find a new doctor and get comfortable with a new practice.
Botox is appropriate for wrinkles across your forehead and around your eyes. These lines are caused by frequent contractions of your facial muscles. When your muscles seize, it wrinkles the skin that covers them, pushing that skin into furrows and folds. Botox treatment will prevent certain muscles from contracting, which allows the skin to relax and heal. Over time, the wrinkles will fade from the treated areas of your face.
Botox can be used on vertical and horizontal forehead lines, as well as crow’s feet (at the corners of your eyes).
Dermal Fillers and Skin Rejuvenation
Facial fillers add volume to areas that are lacking. We lose hydrating substances as we age, leading to sagging skin and deep lines on the lower half of the face. Dermal fillers replace those substances with natural imitations, filling out your skin and smoothing lines. Patients commonly seek fillers to resolve lines around the nose and mouth, as well as above and below the lips. They’re also right for subtle lip enhancement.
