BOTOX ® Cosmetic & Dermal Fillers Treatment
We are pleased to now provide Botox ® Cosmetic for our patients. Dr. Kumar is specially trained and certified to administer Botox® to our patients. Not only can these procedures improve the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes and forehead, they can be used to enhance the beautiful cosmetic dentistry that we provide at our office. And the best part is, others will not be able to easily tell that you had injections!
There are many dental symptoms that can be treated with Botox ® Cosmetic treatment. It can be used for relief from TMJ and teeth grinding pain, to reduce the appearance of a “gummy smile” and to remove “black triangles” from the smile, and to remove wrinkles from around the corners of the mouth for a more youthful appearance.
What is BOTOX ® Cosmetic?
BOTOX ® Cosmetic treatment is a quick, 10-minute non-surgical procedure that requires no downtime or recovery— it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. With a few tiny injections, BOTOX ® Cosmetic blocks nerve impulses to the muscles in your forehead reducing their movement. This decreased muscle activity helps lessen the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows for real, noticeable results. These treatments can be used to remove wrinkles around the mouth and smile or from the forehead and eyes. BOTOX ® Cosmetic can also be used to make lips fuller.
But that is not all. In addition to removing wrinkles, BOTOX ® Cosmetic treatments can be used for therapeutic reasons as well. BOTOX ® has been successfully used to treat migraine headaches, teeth grinding (bruxism) and TMJ jaw pain, and “gummy smiles”.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal Fillers are injectable treatment that corrects facial wrinkles and folds in your skin. This treatment is especially effective at smoothing the parentheses lines along the sides of your nose and mouth.
You can experience injectable gel with a quick, in-office procedure and minimal downtime. During treatment, Dr. Kumar will ease the dermal filler under your skin to smooth out the moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. You’ll see the difference instantly! And, the results can last up to one full year from only one treatment!
