Did you know that you can get Botox and dermal fillers at the dentist?
Our dentists understand the teeth and gums and the musculature of the face. This allows them to expertly administer fillers and Botox. Juvederm, Restalyne, and Botox treatments are also a great way to complete a smile makeover, a treatment plan that uses multiple cosmetic dental solutions to brighten and straighten the smile.
The professional team at Williamsburg Dental offers Botox and dermal fillers to patients in Broomall, PA. Our team will walk you through the treatment process and recommend Botox or fillers for the areas of the face that you would like to address.
Botox Cosmetic is a treatment that is injected into the muscle tissue of the face. It is a neuromodulator that blocks muscular movement. This releases tension in the face and smooths the skin. We can treat the forehead, crow’s feet, lipstick lines, frown lines, and more with Botox.
Our Botox injections offer quick and relatively painless treatment. Patients will see Botox results after two weeks. However, these results can last for over six months. Botox also works well when combined with our injectable fillers. Together, they add volume and eliminate wrinkles and folds in the face.
We offer Juvederm and Restalyne, dermal fillers that may be used in conjunction with Botox treatments. Dermal fillers add volume and definition to multiple areas of the face. Both of these treatments are minimally invasive and long-lasting. Juvederm and Restalyne are modified forms of Hyaluronic Acid, a substance that provides volume to the skin.
Fillers reduce the signs of aging by filling in wrinkles or lines in the face. Dermal fillers can also be used to fill the lips, chin, cheeks, and smile lines. Juvederm and Restalyne are the longest-lasting fillers on the market and last six to twelve months.
Botox and Dermal Fillers Frequently Asked Questions
Does insurance cover Botox?
Insurance usually only covers Botox treatment if you need it for therapeutic purposes. If you just want Botox for cosmetic reasons, insurance will likely not cover it. Chronic migraines, muscle spasms, and urinary incontinence may qualify you for Botox insurance coverage. These conditions can be draining and impact a patient’s quality of life. Check with your insurance provider to see if they cover this procedure.
How long does Botox last for?
Botox results can vary, but the effects generally last about 3 to 4 months. Some patients notice the benefits lasting a little bit longer. This is especially true if you had a few treatments. However, newer patients may need a touch-up sooner. Botox is not permanent, so you will likely need regular treatments to maintain the results.
How long do fillers last?
Dermal fillers generally last between 6 to 18 months. Their longevity will largely depend on the type of filler and the area your doctor or dentist treated. For instance, hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvéderm and Restylane, can last 6 to 12 months. On the other hand, synthetic fillers, like Radiesse and Sculptra, can last longer. Radiesse can last up to about 12 months. Sculptra can potentially last for more than two years.
What week does Botox look the best?
Botox typically looks its best about two weeks after the treatment. This timeframe allows the Botox to take effect fully. The Botox treatment has had time to relax the muscles and smooth out the wrinkles by this time. While some patients might start to see improvements within a few days, it’s the two-week mark when you’ll likely notice the difference.
How long is the face swollen after fillers?
Face swelling after fillers usually peaks at 24-72 hours. Most patients see improvement within 3 to 5 days. However, it can also last 1-4 weeks in rare cases. Areas like lips might swell more. The swelling can vary depending on the type of filler the doctor used or the area they treated.
Can you have Botox and dermal fillers together?
Yes, you can have Botox and dermal fillers together. Botox relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles, typically around the forehead and eyes. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, add volume and can smooth out deeper lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers can also enhance features like lips and cheeks. When you use Botox and dermal fillers together, they can complement each other for a more comprehensive anti-aging result.
