While plastic surgery is a well-known way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fight signs of aging, there are many of us who’d like the results without the surgery. Today, there are several non-surgical, minimally invasive procedures that can provide wonderful outcomes.
If you’re considering some of the popular aesthetic procedures and treatments for your face, your dentist should be the first call to make. Dentists, of course, have extensive training with facial nerves, muscles and structure, and are highly skilled with facial injections.
Dr. Curington offers the cosmetic Botox and Juvderm injections to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These solutions can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and enhance volume and shape in the injection site.
Botox is a cosmetic injection system derived from botulinum toxin type A. Approved by the FDA, Botox is completely safe, stopping muscle contractions and reducing the formation of wrinkles and lines in the injection area.
After treatment, the full results of Botox injections are seen in about a week. At this point, the muscles in the injection area are relaxed, causing the wrinkles and lines to fade. Botox injections improve your appearance and self-confidence, with results lasting approximately four to six months.
Botox also has benefits beyond mere cosmetic treatment – it has been used in therapies to help treat excessive sweating, jaw pain/tension, and migraine headaches.
Juvderm is a cosmetic dermal filler derived from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. Juvderm presents an alternative to cosmetic surgery used to fill in deep lines and wrinkles on the face, as well as to perform lip augmentation.
The best candidates for Juvderm are patients in generally good health who are interested in reducing the prominence of facial wrinkles, or fuller lips. Common side effects include swelling, redness, soreness, bruising, or itching of the injection site. All of these side effects are temporary and will usually resolve within a day or two following treatment. Juvderm will give you a youthful, fresh appearance by reducing lines and wrinkles on the face, with no recovery time required following treatment!
The results of Juvderm injections last between six months to a whole year. The treatment is safe, generally risk-free, and requires no downtime or major recovery.
