Most people pay close attention to the way they look. After all, first impressions count. If you’ve noticed lately that lines and wrinkles are starting to impinge on your appearance, then the solution may be as close as your dentist’s office. DeMartino Dental Group offers Botox and Juvederm in Phillipsburg to eliminate those tiny line and wrinkles. The dentist has received special training to apply these treatments that are quick and convenient. In fact, we can schedule either service in conjunction with one of your semi-annual dental checkups or while one of your children is seeing the dentist. Read on to learn more about both Botox and Juvederm and how they can give you something to smile about!
Why Am I Getting Wrinkles?
While those lines and wrinkles on your face can be annoying, they do mean that you’ve celebrated a lot of birthdays–that’s the good news. The bad news is that they can make you look older than your chronological age. As we grow older, our skin produces less collagen, which is the key ingredient to skin’s youthful elasticity. This shortage of collagen, along with sun exposure and gravity, leads to lines, wrinkles and sagging facial features.
How Can Botox Help?
Botox in Phillipsburg is ideal for treating lines that appear in the upper region of your face—including your forehead, between your eyebrows and at the outside corners of your eyes. Botox must be injected in small and concentrated quantities. Botox relaxes facial muscles so they cannot contract when you smile, talk, eat or laugh. Thus, lines across your forehead and crows’ feet are eliminated.
In addition to the cosmetic effect, Botox has also been shown to relieve the often painful symptoms of temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD) as well as migraine headaches.
How Does Juvederm Work?
Juvederm is a dermal filler that plumps and smoothes the surface of your skin. In this way, Juvederm is often ideal for treating the area around your mouth. Patients often request Juvederm in Phillipsburg when they want to lift drooping cheeks, plump their lips or smooth lines on or around the lips. Juvederm is carefully injected directly beneath the skin.
Do Botox and Juvederm Injections Hurt?
Most people experience very little pain with either treatment. Juvederm fillers actually contain a bit of lidocaine to help reduce discomfort. We can also apply a topical numbing cream for either treatment.
