What are Botox and dermal fillers?
Botox and dermal fillers are two types of injections that can improve or enhance your appearance.
Botox highlights your smile by reducing or eliminating the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. Also known as expression lines, dynamic wrinkles are skin imperfections caused by the contraction of facial muscles. Examples of dynamic wrinkles that the team can treat with Botox include:
- Worry lines
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Smile lines
Rio Rancho Family Dental Care also uses Botox as a part of migraine treatment and trigger point therapy.
In addition to regular Botox treatments, the practice offers Xeomin, a budget-friendly alternative that offers similar results.
Dermal fillers are injections that treat signs of aging, including, thinning skin, fine lines, and static wrinkles. Static wrinkles are those wrinkles that appear when your skin loses some of its natural volume.
The team at Rio Rancho Family Dental Care may also recommend dermal fillers if you’re interested in:
- Plumping thin lips
- Diminishing the appearance of recessed scars
- Enhancing the appearance of shallow facial contours
To help you achieve your ideal look, the practice uses Juvéderm®. Juvéderm is made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that your body naturally produces to hydrate and volumize the skin.
Juvéderm is known for its smooth, gel-like consistency.
How does Botox work?
Botox uses a purified form of botulinum toxin A to relax overactive facial muscles. When your provider, trained by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, injects just a tiny amount of Botox into your target muscles, it blocks your local nerve pulses. Now unable to contract, your muscles relax.
As these muscles relax, the wrinkles and lines in the target areas fade or completely disappear. The procedure usually takes about 10 minutes and it doesn’t require anesthesia. Typically, you notice results within one day.
Is dermal filler treatment uncomfortable?
The team at Rio Rancho Family Dental Care wants to make your dermal filler treatment as pleasant as possible. To minimize any discomfort, the practice includes an anesthetic in the filler.
After just one treatment, you can enjoy a youthful appearance for up to a year.
