Botox is an FDA approved purified protein which is injected into targeted muscles and temporarily blocks nerve signals that cause muscle movements, essentially relaxing the muscle which reduces or eliminates fine lines and wrinkles.
Within 10-14 days of the Botox injection, the treated facial muscles become temporarily relaxed, causing the overlying skin to lay flat and unwrinkled. The untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion allowing facial expressions to be unaffected.
Botox injections only take a few minutes and will remain effective for 3-6 months.
Inside your tooth, beneath the white enamel and a hard layer called dentin, is a soft tissue called pulp. This tissue contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, which help grow the root of your tooth during its development. A fully developed tooth can survive without the pulp because the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it.
As skin ages, it begins to lose collagen filled with hyaluronic acid (HA). Collagen and HA add structure and volume to the face; therefore, a lack of HA causes the skin to sag and wrinkle. That’s where dermal fillers come into play.
Dermal fillers are smooth injectable gels made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers add volume to these deficient areas to restore your face to a more natural youthful appearance.
In just one short appointment, you will immediately see esthetic results which can last up to six months.
Because Botox and Dermal Fillers are temporary esthetic treatments, for your convenience, these treatments can be scheduled to coincide with other routine appointments in our office.
