What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are smooth injectable gels made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers add volume to weakened facial features and can stimulate collagen growth. Each dermal filler is unique in its own way but similar in two. First, they plump skin and gently lift it to restore collagen loss due to the normal aging process. Secondly, dermal fillers motivate the body to create its own natural collagen and restore your face to a more natural, youthful appearance.
What is Botox?
Botox® is the trade name for Botulinum Toxin, a neurotoxin in the form of a purified protein.
The areas typically treated with Botulinum Toxin (Botox) for wrinkles are the forehead, between the eyes (glabellar region), around the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) and around the lips (smokers lines or gummy smile). There is no loss of sensory feeling in the muscles. Once the motor nerve endings are interrupted, the muscle cannot contract, causing wrinkles in the skin to smooth. The effects of Botulinum Toxin (Botox) last approximately three to four months, at which time the patient will require retreatment.
Suffering from TMJ, Migraines or Facial Pain?
Many people suffer from mild to moderate level of facial pain, whether it is from headaches, migraines, stress, their bit or TMJ dysfunction. Botox injections are being used more frequently in dental offices as treatments for these troublesome pains. Studies have shown patients who received these injections experienced significant improvement in pain, function, ability to open their mouth and levels of tenderness to palpation. Find out how Botox can effectively relieve TMJ Syndrome, migraine headaches and a wide range of facial pain symptoms.
