Men and women who are interested in turning back the hands of time in a noninvasive way are encouraged to take the time to speak to a professional such as Dr. Michaela McKenzie about injections such as Juvéderm and Botox. Both are used in her practice to address fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face and the injections can be done in conjunction with dentistry treatments.
Botox and Juvéderm are two different types of treatments and so it is important that patients understand how each of them work to achieve results.
Botox is a neuromodulator. It works by reducing muscle contractions and therefore can help in making folds and wrinkles less noticeable. It has been used for many years for certain medical conditions as well as cosmetically, and is approved by the FDA as a safe and effective medication. Botox can be used in conjunction with other treatments to treat such issues as TMJ and facial pain to help relieve jaw soreness and headaches caused by bruxism grinding of the teeth, and also clenching of the jaw muscles. Botox injections take a few days to take effect.
Juvéderm works differently from Botox. Juvéderm is a filler made of hyaluronic acid. When injected directly into fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth -it can help fill them and reduce their depth. This makes the wrinkles far less visible and makes patients skin look softer and much more youthful. Juvéderm results are immediate and last about a year.
Patients are welcome to ask their dentist about using Botox or Juvéderm during their next visit to help with fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. Many patients love the ease of booking a cosmetic appointment such as this with their dental visit and enjoy two treatments at once!
