Time is relentless, and despite all the things you do to take care of your skin, your face still shows your age. You always wear sunscreen and use a variety of lotions to keep it healthy, but even healthy skin does not always appear youthful. You need something that can take away those stubborn wrinkles. Thankfully, your cosmetic dentist in Weymouth at Columbian Square Dental can offer two solutions: Botox and Juvederm. While most people don’t consider the dentist when it comes to something beyond their teeth, dental professionals are some of the most highly-qualified people when it comes to making your face match your youthful spirit. Today, Dr. Andrew Luccio and Dr. Stephen Kerr are going to discuss what these solutions actually are, and how they can take away your wrinkles.
Botox: Make Time Stand Still
Botox is a quick and effective treatment that can reduce wrinkles located on the forehead, cheeks, lips, and neck. Rather than using invasive surgery, Botox utilizes a very refined version of botulinum toxin, a protein produced by the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. Botox is able to gently paralyze the facial muscles that cause the skin to wrinkle. The end result is a much smoother, younger appearance.
Treatment involves a few strategically placed painless injections into the areas where you want to reduce wrinkles. It only takes about 10 minutes, but the results are almost instant, and requires practically no recovery time. You’ll be able to go back to your regular activities immediately after treatment, which is why many people refer to it as a “lunch break face-lift.” The results can last for several months, and can be maintained for a lifetime with regular appointments.
Botox can also be used for non-cosmetic reasons. For people who suffer from chronic, uncontrollable jaw clenching and teeth-grinding, Botox can prevent the muscles spasms that cause this. It can also be used to help people who suffer from chronic headaches, ear aches, and even neck pain due to TMJ problems.
Juvederm: Restore Your Youthful Glow
One of the main sources of facial wrinkles is the loss of volume in the cheeks and lips. This occurs naturally as a person ages, and can cause the skin to sag and appear older. Fortunately, Juvederm can be used to restore this volume and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It is made of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the muscles and tendons of mammals. This, just like Botox, can be injected into the skin directly where the wrinkles are occurring. It helps “plump-up” the sagging areas, making the skin (and your face in general) appear much fuller and younger.
The treatment itself is also very fast and requires almost no recovery time. The effects of Juvederm will also last for several months and need to be maintained with regular visits.
Why Would I See a Dentist For My Face?
This is a question many people have. Highly-educated and experienced dentists like Dr. Luccio and Dr. Kerr aren’t only trained to treat your teeth, but your facial bones, joints, and muscles as well. This means they will be able to use these treatments while keeping your safety and functionality a top priority. They understand your smile and your face are part of a system, and that each treatment they use needs to balance within it. This gives them a kind of expertise you won’t find with a typical cosmetic doctor, and ensures that you’ll get results that will be both satisfying and long-lasting.
How Can I Get Botox or Juvederm?
If you’re interested in turning back the clock using either one of these easy treatments, you simply need to make an appointment with Columbian Square Dental. This will allow the doctors a chance to give you a quick examination, talk about what kind of results you are looking for, and even treat you in the same appointment. All in all, they have the tools and experience to help you look your best and make you more confident than ever before. If you’re ready to say goodbye to those wrinkles, give us a call today.
