Receiving cosmetic dental treatments improves the aesthetics of your smile, but many patients find that they’re looking for a little something extra. When we improve our teeth, we pay more attention to both our smile and the area surrounding it. The skin around our mouths can fall prey to the effects of time and develop lines. Cosmetic injections of Botox and Juvederm will rejuvenate your facial skin and provide a beautiful backdrop for your fresh new smile. After undergoing these treatments, you’ll feel and look refreshed. Your confidence will soar in ways you may not have even thought possible.
Our emotions play across our faces, and can take an unfortunate toll on our skin. When our facial muscles contract, the skin over the muscles pulls and wrinkles. Botox works as a muscle relaxer to tame problematic muscles. Dr. Sierra will inject Botox at target sites to affect the muscles beneath in predictable ways. Undergoing Botox treatment won’t give you a “frozen” face or limit your range of expressions; it will simply relax wrinkle-causing muscles.
Botox is typically used to smooth wrinkles on the upper half of the face, primarily forehead lines and crow’s feet. Vertical and horizontal lines spanning the forehead and the space between your brows are easily handled with Botox treatments. You’ll no longer find yourself furrowing your brow when deep in concentration – Botox will relax your forehead for you! The results are both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.
Rather than halt muscle contractions, Juvederm supplies skin with a hydrating subtance called hyaluronan. This plumps the areas directly below your outer layer of skin for a rounding, smoothing effect. Dermal fillers like Juvederm are perfect for erasing deep lines on the lower half of the face. Laugh lines (nasolabial folds), vertical lip lines, and lines around the nose can all be reduced with Juvederm injections.
Dermal filler results are enduring, and can remain visible on your face for six months to one year. You’ll be delighted with the youthful effect that rounded cheeks have on your entire visage.
