Botox and Juvederm
Facial Injection Treatments From Dentists...?
Dentists are among the most experienced injectors in the health care industry. They have had extensive and comprehensive training in facial anatomy, symmetry and muscolature. Dentists are educated and licensed to treat conditions of the head and neck and are highly skilled in the use and delivery of local anesthetics. The detail-oriented nature of dentists combined with their years of experience make dermal filler treatments a natural extension of the cosmetic dental care that they provide their patients. Dr. Jeffrey Brewer can provide his patients with both Botox and Juvederm treatments.
Botox Treatments Cosmetic Enhancement
Botox has provided amazing results without surgery and with zero recovery time to over 11 million people since 2002. It can reduce lines on your face and thereby minimize the effects of age on the skin of the face. Botox is a prescription medication that is injected into muscles with the goal of reducing moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, around the eyes and around the mouth. This non-surgical treatment works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles that cause lines to form. These blocked nerve impulses reduce muscle activity that cause moderate to severe lines to form on the face.
Juvederm Injectable Dermal Filler
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler that can improve the elasticity and plumpness of skin which may minimize or reduce the appearance of wrinkles. When we are young, our skin is very elastic and supported by underlying tissues that are rich in hyaluronic acid. These stores of hyaluronic acid are depleted as we age at the rate of about 1% per year. As our naturally occurring hyaluronic acid stores are reduced, the elasticity of our skin is reduced which can result in wrinkles and deep lines around our mouth, eyes and brow. Juvederm is most often used around the mouth to minimize wrinkles and improve droopy smiles.
Juvéderm™ is a smooth gel that is made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in your body. By carefully injecting Juvéderm™ underneath the skin, your skin can be completely rejuvenated, ultimately adding volume and reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds.
Juvéderm™ offers patients a safe and effective treatment with little to no down-time. Juvéderm™ is less invasive than other fillers and provides patients with dramatic improvement almost immediately following treatment. Results can last from six months to a year.
Not only will Botox® and Juvéderm™ enhance your facial features, but they can also be used for other health purposes. Juvederm is NOT used around the eyes and on the brow or forehead area. Botox is a more appropriate product for the areas above the nose.
