15 May Feel Youthful Again This Summer with Botox & Dermal Fillers
Summer is almost here! BBQs, beach days, neighborhood get-togethers, and more are about to become the new norm again. With all this summertime socializing, many of us want to put our best foot forward. But if you have lost the youthful spring in your step, don’t fret!
At Koch Aesthetic Dentistry, we can help you reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging with Botox® and dermal fillers. While you may have thought of us as dental experts, we’re highly skilled in administering injectables too. In fact, our team has more understanding of facial anatomy than other providers may offer.
While it’s not possible to freeze time, we can help freeze the effects of aging with Botox and dermal fillers. In this blog, you’ll learn everything you need to know about our treatments for a more radiant, youthful complexion.
What Is Botox®?
World-famous for its lasting benefits and jaw-dropping results, Botox can reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, droopy eyelids, forehead wrinkles, and more. Botox is a neurotoxin derived from Botulinum toxin. This FDA-approved injectable blocks chemical signals of specific facial nerves, relaxing the muscles that can cause those pesky fine lines and wrinkles. Beyond cosmetic benefits, Botox can be used to relieve symptoms of TMJ (temporomandibular joint).
How Long Does Botox Last?
Typically, Botox will last for around three to four months, so your wrinkles may eventually return after treatment. As your body creates new neurotransmitters, the effects of Botox could gradually fade. Our team may recommend Botox injections every four to six months if you want to retain your youthful good looks. At Koch Aesthetic Dentistry, we can create a unique treatment plan for you to feel your best all year long.
Where Can Botox Be Injected?
Botox can be injected almost anywhere on the face, so if you have spotted fine lines and wrinkles in the mirror, you can choose one area, or multiple, to target when you make your Botox appointment.
Some common areas for Botox injections include:
- Lines between eyebrows
- Top of nose
- Around the eyes (Crow’s feet)
- Around the mouth (Smoker’s lines)
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Like Botox, dermal fillers can diminish wrinkles, soften facial creases, and improve the appearance of facial scars. But, dermal fillers are injected under the skin, not into the specific muscles like Botox. Because of this, dermal fillers can add much-needed volume to sunken cheeks, flat lips, forehead lines, and more. Dermal fillers can be derived from different sources, each for a different look. Some dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid or Calcium hydroxylapatite, which are both naturally occurring substances in the body.
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
Dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months, depending on where they are injected. Before your injection, our team can discuss dermal filler options , which one will last the longest, the benefits of each, and more. Then, we will create an anti-aging care plan so you don’t have to worry about staying on track with your treatments.
Where Can Dermal Fillers Be Injected?
Dermal fillers can rejuvenate sunken areas of the face while providing a youthful glow. Dermal fillers can even reduce the appearance of scars, lessening the appearance and evening out the surrounding complexion.
This FDA-approved injectable can be injected into numerous areas of the face and body, including:
- Around the mouth
