Why Choose Brick Dental Care for Facial Esthetics?

Botox

You may not even have realized that Botox could be performed in a dentist’s office! The treatment stops the involuntary muscle contractions that cause wrinkles in the first place; after 3 to 10 days, the skin around the muscles will simply smooth itself out. You will need periodic follow-up treatments if you want to maintain your new youthful look, but in the meantime, you’ll be able to enjoy the impact of a smile framed by wrinkle-free skin.

Enhance Your Appearance and Boost Your Confidence

You may have heard of BOTOX on TV or in passing, but have you ever considered it as a solution to help you achieve the appearance that you want? Not only is BOTOX an incredibly cost-effective smile-enhancing treatment, but it can also help restore your youthful glow by minimizing fine lines and wrinkles that you may not find appealing. To learn whether BOTOX in Brick Township can help you, schedule a consultation with our team today!

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is a brand-name of a diluted form of bacteria, known as botulinum toxin. When injected into overworked and tension-filled facial muscles that have formed wrinkles and lines across your face, BOTOX relaxes them, minimizing the appearance of these signs of aging. It can be injected in small doses in any area of your face to help you appear years younger, look less tired, and boost your confidence.

Imperfections BOTOX Can Address

Many patients are surprised to learn that BOTOX is actually a relatively versatile treatment that can address a variety of facial imperfections. Some of these include:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Cleft lip scars
  • Acne scarring
  • Lines on either side of the smile
  • TMJ pain and discomfort

In many cases, we’re able to utilize BOTOX to help patients enhance the look of their smile and feel more confident in their appearance.

What is it Like Getting BOTOX?

When you visit Brick Dental Care for BOTOX injections, we’ll begin by diluting the botulinum toxin in a saline solution and placing it in a syringe. Based on our consultation beforehand, we’ll map out what muscles the injections should be made into to achieve the results you’re hoping for. Depending on how many injections you’d like, the treatment can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour, but typically, each injection takes about five to 10 minutes to administer.

The Benefits of BOTOX

BOTOX injections offer a wide array of benefits for patients, including:

  • Immediate Results. BOTOX is often referred to as a “lunchtime facelift” because the procedure can be completed so quickly. Plus, you’ll be able to see noticeable results within just a few days. After two weeks, the full-effects can be seen.
  • Subtle, Beautiful Effects. You won’t have to worry about looking like you’ve had “too much work done,” because when administered by a professional, like your cosmetic dentist in Brick Township, the results of BOTOX are subtle enhancements that make a huge difference.
  • Non-Surgical Facial Enhancements. No scalpels, sutures, or recovery times are necessary with BOTOX, making it an excellent alternative to plastic surgery.
  • Cost-Effective Cosmetic Procedure. The cost of your BOTOX treatment depends on how many injections you receive, but it’s significantly more affordable than facial surgeries and achieves similar results!
  • Lasting Results. The results of BOTOX injections can last between four and six months on average.

BOTOX for TMJ Pain

In addition to using BOTOX to help enhance your smile, we also use it to minimize pain in overworked and stressed jaw joints. In 2012, a French clinical trial found that BOTOX can drastically decrease chronic pain and improve mouth movement with regular treatment. Dr. G keeps up with the latest techniques and advancements in his field and only uses reliable and effective treatments, which is why he offers BOTOX TMJ therapy.

If you have any questions about BOTOX or would like to learn whether you’re a good candidate for this treatment, don’t hesitate to reach out to our office today.

Juvéderm

Juvéderm is an injectable dermal filler. Like Botox, it can be used to smooth out the skin; however, it’s generally used for specific wrinkles, such as nose to mouth folds, mouth to chin folds, and frown lines. It works differently from Botox as instead of stopping muscle movements, it directly restores volume/fullness to your skin. The injections are virtually painless, and the effects can last anywhere from three months to a year.

Enhance Your Smile By Restoring Lost Facial Collagen

As you age and contort your facial muscles to express your emotions, collagen will naturally break down. Not only can this make wrinkles more noticeable, but it can also cause thinning and hollow-looking features, like your lips or cheeks. With Juvéderm, which is a brand of dermal fillers, our team at Brick Dental Care can enhance your smile and restore your youthful glow.

What is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is a type of injectable dermal filler that has a base of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally produced by the body. When placed beneath your skin at certain depths, it acts to replace lost collagen and restore the full and voluminous appearance of facial features that have become saggy or thinned-out over the years. The number of injections that you require will depend on what facial features you’d like to enhance.

How Do Dermal Fillers Differ from BOTOX?

BOTOX is different from dermal fillers because it’s injected into muscles to help them ease-up and relax and minimize wrinkles, whereas dermal fillers are injected beneath the top layer of the skin to restore lost collagen and revive facial volume.

The Benefits of Dermal Fillers

There are several different benefits to getting derma fillers in Brick Township, including:

  • Virtually Immediate Results: The process of getting dermal filler injections only takes about an hour, and within only a few days, you’ll begin to notice results. The best part is, the recovery time for this treatment is incredibly short.
  • Lasting Results: Dermal filler results can last anywhere from three to nine months. Once you begin noticing the results are fading, just come back in for a quick touch-up.
  • Naturally Beneficial for Skin: Hyaluronic acid, the base of Juvéderm, is a natural substance produced by your body. Plus, the injections are FDA-approved.
  • Subtle Results That Don’t Look “Fake”: Many patients worry about having results that look “fake” or too noticeable to be natural. When injections are done by a professional like your cosmetic dentist in Brick Township, they’ll be beautiful, subtle enhancements that make you feel confident.
  • Complimented By BOTOX: Dermal fillers can be paired with BOTOX to minimize wrinkles and fine lines on the face and enhance the smile.

What Can Facial Fillers Do?

Lost collagen is an unfortunate result of aging that can cause a variety of cosmetic facial imperfections that many patients find unappealing. Here are a few examples of situations in which dermal fillers can be the perfect treatment:

  • Thinned lips
  • Shadow-looking areas of the face and cheeks
  • Shadows beneath eyes
  • Under-eye wrinkles
  • Recessed scarring
  • Acne scarring
  • Wrinkles around the mouth and cheek areas
