Let Dr. Morton help you bring back the youthful appearance you desire while you are visiting for your semi-annual checkup through our anti-aging dentistry in Mint 32 dentistry in Alpharetta, GA. With the help of Botox and Juvéderm, it is possible to restore the appearance you once had years ago.
What is Botox?
Botox is familiar to most people. People know what it does, but not many really know what it is. Botox is the brand name for botulinum toxin. This toxin is safely injected into facial muscles to erase fine lines and wrinkles from your complexion. It will take several days to see effects from your Botox injection, but you will be fine to return to your normal activities within a day of receiving your injection.
What are the Benefits of Botox?
Little to No Recovery Time – With Botox injections, you simply need to take it easy for a few hours afterward, but there is no real recovery time needed. This means no time off work, and no missed opportunities. You will be free to live your life as you see fit and just wait for the Botox to take effect. You should avoid rubbing the area of the injection following your treatment.
Last for Months – This is a twofold benefit. First, it lasts for months at a time, so you won’t have to keep running back to our office to get an injection. Second, Botox is not permanent. The fact that it ONLY lasts for a few months means you are not stuck with the effects. If you decide you don’t want to have the treatments anymore, just let your body process through the injection, and you are back to normal.
May Treat TMJ – The FDA has approved Botox for the use of treating certain conditions that may contribute to the development of TMJ disorders. They have not officially approved it for TMJ itself, but there are studies that suggest it may be a viable treatment.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is a facial filler that is used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles in the face. The active ingredient in Juvéderm is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin. Juvéderm will boost the volume of your skin in the area of injection.
What are the Benefits of Juvéderm?
Improved Appearance – Erasing fine lines and wrinkles from around your mouth will make you look younger. Your younger appearance will boost your confidence, and that confidence will be evident in everything you do.
Lasting Appearance – Juvéderm will smooth fine lines and wrinkles from around your mouth for nine to 12 months. This is a much longer lasting treatment than Botox, which can be good if you want the youthful effects to be prolonged.
