Botox and Fillers Q & A
How does Botox work?
Botox is a cosmetic injectable made from the naturally occurring botulinum toxin. When your provider at Oasis Family Dental injects this highly purified gel into your forehead, between your eyebrows, and at the outer corners of your eyes, it temporarily reduces muscle movement. As a result, wrinkles and lines appear smoother and less noticeable.
When you receive Botox from a skilled provider who understands facial muscles, like the ones at Oasis Family Dental, you won’t look “frozen” or overdone. Instead, you’ll just look like a younger, refreshed version of yourself.
When will I see results from Botox injections?
Expect to see an improvement in the treated areas of your forehead and around your eyes within the first 24-48 hours after your treatment. Frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet appear less severe than before Botox. Most adults enjoy these results for up to four months or longer, depending on the severity of your facial lines.
Once you achieve your desired look, you can get Botox a few times a year so you can maintain a more youthful appearance. The expert team customizes a treatment plan that’s right for your needs.
How do dermal fillers work?
Dermal fillers work differently than Botox. The practice uses Juvéderm hyaluronic acid fillers. These gels fill in different areas of your face to increase volume, reduce lines, and help your facial features appear lifted and younger.
Juvéderm offers a variety of different fillers formulated to rejuvenate your lips and cheeks, and the nasolabial folds around your nose and mouth.
Depending on your wrinkles and the areas you want to improve, you might get Juvéderm injections to plump up your lips and smooth lip lines, give your cheeks the lift they need for added volume, and to get rid of those moderate-to-severe parentheses lines around your mouth.
The hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm is similar to the hyaluronic acid your body makes naturally. It works to keep skin hydrated, restore volume, and help your skin have a naturally smoother appearance. And Juvéderm is long-lasting, so you enjoy the results for up to two years.
