Oklahoma City BOTOX & Dermal Fillers
Injectable treatments, such as BOTOX, are extremely popular cosmetic procedures due to their effectiveness and zero downtime. When considering Botox or dermal fillers for the first time, it is natural and encouraged to have questions. This is why at Grace Dentistry we offer new patients a consultation with Dr. Grace so you have the opportunity to discuss your cosmetic goals and concerns. Every patient’s desires and concerns are listened to before we create their customized treatment plan. There is no obligation for treatment and you can take your time to think our recommendations through.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is the only FDA approved product to temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet in adults. BOTOX is primarily used to prevent muscle movement that is used to create wrinkles. Dr. Grace also administers BOTOX to temporarily relieve migraines, jaw joint pain, in (conjunction with other therapy), and to temporarily correct gummy smiles. BOTOX is a quick and painless procedure designed to help restore youth and vitality in your face.
How Does BOTOX Work?
BOTOX is injected into the facial muscle in a specific area. When this is done, it blocks nerve signals that cause the muscle to contract. The muscles then become relaxed and allow the facial skin to gradually smooth out, softening your wrinkles. BOTOX is extremely safe and effective and typically lasts 3-6 months.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers, like BOTOX, are a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. However, dermal fillers do not act on the muscles and instead add volume to certain areas of the face. Dependent on the goal, to decrease the appearance of wrinkles or increase volume, will determine the injection site. To increase volume, lips, cheeks, jowls, and temples are popular sites. Most patients do a combination of dermal fillers and BOTOX to reach their desired goals.
