Have you ever wanted to enhance your beauty for a more youthful and refreshed look? If so, our dentist and team can help. One of the ways we have been able to help our patients achieve that soft, supple look is with facial fillers. At Fournier Family Dentistry, we use BOTOX®, Dysport® and JUVÉDERM® to help you meet your goals.
Of all of the fillers on the market BOTOX (onabotulinumtoxinA) is one of the most widely recognized and revered. With its simple name and exceptional results, BOTOX has become part of the American vernacular as a catch-all phrase for a facial filler. This medication is fast-acting and effective to give you the results you deserve.
BOTOX is injected into the muscles of the brow to smooth frown lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet. This treatment is so effective that it actually is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet. Not only can this injectable improve fine lines, but it can also help you look younger, calmer and more alert.
As an added bonus, BOTOX can be used for other purposes too, namely, to reduce migraine headaches, lessen excessive sweating or treat a TMJ disorder.
Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) is often recommended as an alternative to BOTOX or other cosmetic injectables. It is a versatile treatment that works to temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines as well as other conditions.
Dysport is injected directly into your facial muscles in the areas underlying your frown lines. This injection is painless and does not require an anesthetic. It works by temporarily reducing muscle activity, and you may find yourself unable to frown for some time as the injectable begins to work. Because this is an injectable, non-invasive treatment, you will be able to return to your regular activities as soon as you leave our office.
You may require three to five sessions to achieve the best results. Each session lasts 10-20 minutes, and sessions are spaced at intervals of about four months. You should begin to see improvement in your appearance two to three days following your initial treatment, with results lasting up to four months.
JUVÉDERM is a form of dermal filler that is injected around the nose and mouth to smooth wrinkles, lines and folds in the facial skin. Dermal fillers are useful in restoring natural facial volume and contours in the face that can be lost with age. By restoring the fullness to the face, you can achieve a more youthful appearance.
You may be interested in using JUVÉDERM if you are interested in:
- Plumping thin lips
- Improving the appearance of old scars
- Enhancing the face and restoring natural fullness
- Softening wrinkles and creases in the face
JUVÉDERM uses hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance that hydrates the skin and restores the structure and contours of the skin.
