What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers such as JUVÉDERM® are gel-like substances that can be used to effectively treat areas in the face that lose volume and elasticity due to the aging process. By reversing some of the signs of aging with dermal fillers, you can rediscover your youthful smile.

If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits that BOTOX® and dermal fillers can offer you, please contact our team at White Smiles Family Dentistry. We would love to help you regain your confidence and show off the smile you want.

How Does BOTOX® Work?

BOTOX® works by temporarily blocking signals nerves send to the muscles, thus reducing muscle movement and letting wrinkles soften and relax. In addition, experienced injectors use BOTOX® to lift up regions of the face, as well as to extend the life of dermal filler applications. Quick-acting BOTOX® yields results that are visible within 3 to 5 days, and they last for approximately 3 to 6 months. BOTOX® works well alone, and can also be effectively used in combination with other treatments.

BOTOX® is a safe purified protein used effectively to relax muscles of the face, correct existing lines, and prevent additional wrinkles from developing. It decreases the activity levels of muscles known to cause wrinkles, including frown lines and crow’s feet. In addition, BOTOX® offers therapeutic benefits for correcting migraine headaches, gummy smiles, and the pain and discomfort that come from TMD and Bruxism.


What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers effectively replace the natural substances found in our facial skin that are lost due to the aging process. These fillers can reverse many of the signs of aging by reducing, or even eliminating, wrinkles around your smile. They lift the corners of your mouth, enhance your lips, and replace any volume loss of soft tissues. It’s certainly possible, safe, and acceptable to use JUVÉDERM® and BOTOX® treatments simultaneously. These treatments target different parts of your facial skin, so it’s completely safe to use them at the same time.
