BOTOX Cosmetic, Juvéderm, and Restylane
Our patients are tuned in to the latest and greatest when it comes to looking and feeling their best. Therefore, when we received requests from our patients for other cosmetic procedures such as BOTOX Cosmetic, Juvéderm, and Restylane, Dr. Tatiana Herzog answered the call and brought these popular treatments to Lifestyle Dental Group.
These types of cosmetic procedures are commonly performed by dentists and offer great results for patients. Because BOTOX Cosmetic, Juvéderm, and Restylane are not permanent, the risks are minimal.
BOTOX Cosmetic for Wrinkles and Frown Lines
A sterilized botulinum medication, BOTOX is used to temporarily reduce the appearance of frown lines between your eyebrows, often called the “angry eleven” because of the twin vertical lines that make you look grumpy or annoyed.
BOTOX is also often used to treat lines at the corners of your eyes and at the outer corners of your mouth that pull your mouth downward. BOTOX is applied with a thin needle into the muscles of your face to temporarily freeze the muscles and create a smooth appearance.
TMJD Relief with BOTOX Cosmetic
TMJD (temporomandibular joint disorder) is a condition characterized by jaw pain. Teeth grinding and clenching is often a symptom related to TMJD and can exacerbate the symptoms of TMJD, causing pain and discomfort. BOTOX can be used to treat grinding and clenching when it is injected into the muscles of your jaw. Because your jaw muscles are so strong and create so much force, you will still be able to eat normally, but the amount of force you exert on your teeth will be reduced.
Because BOTOX is injected and has no downtime, you can safely have these procedures on your lunch break or during the work day with no negative effects.
Juvéderm XC for Treatment of Deep Wrinkles
An injectable form of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring acid that diminishes with age, Juvéderm XC can fill in deep wrinkles and lines around your mouth (the lines that look like parentheses around your smile) in order to create a fuller and younger look.
Juvéderm XC is a temporary solution to the common aging problems of wrinkles and facial areas that look sunken in or creased. It can be safely injected at our dental offices. It takes only a few moments, is relatively painless, and has no downtime. Common side effects are mild and include bruising and minor swelling, but most people do not experience any side effects at all. You can have Juvéderm at our Ft. Lauderdale or Boca Raton locations and go back to work the same day.
Restylane for Wrinkle Treatment or Facial Enhancement
Restylane is another form of hyaluronic acid (HA) that mimics the natural HA inside your body. We lose HA as we age, and it can cause the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Restylane is used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles, folds, and creases. It is also useful to enhance the fullness of your lips, cheekbones, chin, or nasolabial (the area between your upper lip and nostrils).
The side effects for Restylane are similar to those of Juvéderm and are generally mild. Restylane enhancement is for patients over 21 years of age.
