Facial aesthetics is the classification of cosmetic treatments that accentuate your features and enhance natural beauty. These treatments mainly entail the use of BOTOX® or Dermal Fillers to soften expression lines and define facial contours.
BOTOX is an easy and effective way to refresh your appearance and rejuvenate your skin. Positive feedback from patients makes it unquestionably the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment. Facial aesthetics can enhance the beauty of your smile by:
Dr. Crooks creates a work of art with your smile that does not stand alone. She offers several non-surgical cosmetic procedures that complete a portrait that goes beyond the intraoral arena of aesthetics!
Most people love to smile, and we love to see each other laugh, grin, and show emotion. Over time our appearance will gradually change even a friendly expression. Wrinkles and age lines begin to settle in, and one day, we look in the mirror and notice that our skin is not as smooth as it used to be.
It’s just a fact, and everyone wants to look younger or more attractive. Fortunately, safe and effective non-surgical treatments exist that can help restore your self-confidence and a youthful appearance!
The primary difference between BOTOX® and other dermal fillers is the way it works. It causes the muscles at the injection site to relax, while dermal facial fillers add volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers do not affect muscle activity.
BOTOX® cosmetic injectables are one of the most common anti-aging treatments available today. Dr. Crooks may recommend BOTOX in conjunction with your dental procedure to reverse visible signs of aging, such as:
BOTOX® therapeutic injections have a different goal in mind. Instead of targeting facial aesthetics. These injections address medical conditions and focus on relieving multiple pain points, including:
Many patients may see results with BOTOX® in as little as 24 hours, although the average time is 3 to 5 days. The resullts from a BOTOX® injection will typically last 3 to 4 months.
Juvéderm® is the #1 selling injectable gel dermal filler. Juvéderm works best in correcting age-related facial volume loss in adults over 21.
Benefits of Dermal Fillers:
Juvéderm, like many other dermal fillers, is made of synthetic hyaluronic acid, a substance found in the human body. Its primary function is to retain water keeping tissues well lubricated and moist, which creates a cushion-like effect that plumps the skin.
As you age, the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen decreases, which makes your skin look saggy and wrinkled. Juvéderm works by adding volume to the facial tissue through its active ingredient, hyaluronic acid.
During the procedure, Dr. Crooks uses a pen to mark the target areas that need treatment. She will then inject Juvéderm as needed, lightly massaging to ensure even distribution and to reduce the chance of swelling. The entire procedure can take between 15 and 60 minutes.
The injections contain a small amount of lidocaine to reduce pain and minimize any discomfort during treatment. On average, dermal fillers last for about 4 to 6 months.
Dentists are far more familiar with your facial structure than any other healthcare provider. They are the best-equipped professionals to deliver cosmetic injectables because they inject anesthetics daily. Dentists have hands-on experience in administering comfortable, quick, relatively painless injections.
Dentists also provide dental anesthesia when needed, minimizing patient discomfort, while other providers only use topical anesthetic cream. With your dentist, you can trust that you will receive the best care available.
