REAL People. REAL Smiles.
It’s not uncommon for patients who take pride in their oral health to ask, “what’s next?” The demand for facial aesthetic services has grown immensely – and for good reason. Derma or facial fillers are a great way to compliment a healthy and balanced smile. These treatments have given our Atlanta patients the youthful and radiant appearance that other areas of cosmetic dentistry can’t provide.
When people think of Botox and related therapies, they often think of physicians or plastic surgery. However, Botox and derma fillers are now up-and-coming procedures in the field of dentistry. Botox is a shortened name for the neurotoxic protein, botulinum toxin. It is injected in the areas of the face to relax and soften features by blocking communication between the nerves and muscles – essentially “freezing” the aging process. Goodbye wrinkles, hello younger-looking you!
Derma fillers are also used to minimize the signs of aging, but instead of stopping a natural process, different ingredients are used to rejuvenate or enhance facial features. Fillers fill the target areas with collagen and promote growth in the face – more appropriate for wrinkles that make the face look deep, depleted, or sunken.
Both treatment options are administered through injections and considered minimally invasive. In some cases, Botox and fillers are used in tandem to treat more severe cases.
Fillers can be used to enhance fullness in facial areas and generally soften the telltale signs of your real age. Not to mention, it’s budget-friendly alternative for any patients who have ever considered getting a facelift. To recap so far and expand a bit further, patients who opt for derma fillers enjoy many benefits, including:
Since every patient is unique, we do not use a “one-size-fits-all” approach with dermal fillers. There are many different types our patients can choose from depending on their desired outcome, which may include treating:
They can also be used to enhance various facial features, like lip plumping or making the cheekbones and/or jawline more prominent.
Thanks to advances in aesthetic technology, there are many different types of derma fillers available to our patients. Some well-known fillers include Juvéderm, Prevelle Silk, and Restylane – just to name a few. You should consider what you want to achieve, how long you want the effects to last, and the composition of each (synthetic vs. natural components). It is also important to remember that longer-lasting options have a tendency to produce greater side effects.
Prior to treatment, your Atlanta dentist will discuss any concerns you have as well as your ideal scenario. They will then recommend a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve the best outcome possible. If your long-term oral and health goals go beyond the capability off fillers, they may also suggest combining this treatment with other dental or cosmetic solutions.
There are many reasons why our patients come to us to receive facial fillers – most notably because Atlanta dentists are extensively trained in areas of the face.
