With proper dental hygiene, regular cleanings, and judicious application of cosmetic dentistry, you can maintain your smile for decades. Your skin, however, is more vulnerable to the ravages of time.
Aging and sun damage cause a loss of volume and elasticity, leading to wrinkles that may be difficult to smooth out. Luckily, injectables like dermal fillers and Botox® can freshen up your look without surgery.
At Fayette Dental Group, serving patients in Fayetteville, Georgia, and the surrounding area, Dr. Charley Cheney and our team of experienced dental specialists have added cosmetic procedures to our list of services. We can make your face look smoother, younger, and less stressed with appropriate injections of Botox and/or dermal fillers to turn back the clock on your skin.
An overview of injectables
No matter how well you care for your skin, fine lines and wrinkles are inevitable. However, that doesn’t mean you have to commit to cosmetic surgery. There are plenty of minimally-invasive ways to reduce wrinkles, the most effective being injectables like Botox and dermal fillers.
Botox has been a household name for years. The formula and injection techniques have come a long way since Botox was approved for cosmetic use in 1989, making it one of the safest and easiest ways to reduce dynamic wrinkles.
Dynamic wrinkles form due to a loss of elasticity. When you make certain expressions, like furrowing your brow, squinting, or frowning, eventually your skin begins to crease along familiar folds.
Botox injections work by paralyzing specific tiny muscles so they can’t pull your skin into deep creases. This doesn’t keep you from emoting, it just prevents the same lines from forming when you’re not making that expression.
Not all wrinkles are made equal, and neither are their solutions. Dermal fillers are often used hand in hand with Botox, filling in static wrinkles. These wrinkles form due to gravity and loss of volume, causing your skin to sag and droop.
Dermal fillers like Juvederm® can reduce deep, static wrinkles by stimulating the production of collagen, the protein that keeps your skin soft and youthful. Fillers can also be used to diminish the appearance of scars, plump your lips, and reduce under-eye shadows.
Combination treatments for maximized results
Used together, Botox and dermal fillers can transform your face, de-aging your look and helping you feel younger than ever. Combined with a great smile, you’ll be supremely satisfied with your appearance, and your self-esteem will skyrocket.
