Why Facial Esthetics?
While we love giving our patients a gorgeous, healthy smile, patients have asked us about helping frown lines and other facial cosmetic issues. As dentists, we’re very experienced with the oral-facial region. We work around the lips and mouth every day. We’re also trained to work with delicate tools in difficult areas quickly and efficiently. We’re confident we’ll give you amazing results with our facial esthetics offerings.
Millions of people have used or at least heard of, Botox. Botox is used cosmetically to treat things like frown lines in the brow and forehead, as well as wrinkles that occur in the corners of the eyes. Botox also has other cosmetic purposes that are dentistry-focused! It’s one of the solutions we utilize to reduce the appearance of gummy smiles.
Botox has uses that aren’t for cosmetic purposes as well. Since it works by relaxing the muscles, Botox is often a successful treatment option for TMJ disorders, facial pain, teeth grinding, and other issues with the jaw. You’ll be able to get the pain relief you need by relaxing the facial muscles that cause these problems.
Juvederm is the dermal filler we offer at Family and Spa Dentistry. As we get older, our bodies don’t produce enough collagen. This is what leads to more lines and wrinkles in the face, as well as losing volume in the cheeks and lips. We’ll use Juvederm for lines above and around the mouth, as well as restoring the youthful plumpness in your face.
What Can I Expect From Facial Esthetics Treatments?
To start, Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci will do a full evaluation of your face and the areas you want to be targeted. You’ll discuss with her your cosmetic goals and determine which injectable will help meet these goals. She’ll determine which are the best points for her to place the injections so that they’ll give you the biggest benefit overall.
Injectables are considered a minimally-invasive procedure. This means that after the 20-30 minute procedure, you should be able to return to your regular day immediately! You’ll probably experience redness, swelling, and tenderness around the injection site for the next couple of days. If you experience more severe side effects or ones that are lasting weeks, call the doctor immediately.
