If the lines in your face are stopping you from feeling completely comfortable with your smile, Dr. Gizachew can help you remove them with one of our facial esthetics treatments. Have you been worried that the skin around your mouth is making you look older? Call us today to schedule a consultation, so we can discuss options to improve facial esthetics from our Brick Township, NJ cosmetic dentist.
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.
Juvederm 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.
