NU Dental Eatontown wants to give our patients the most relaxing and productive dental experience possible. Part of that means not only protecting your oral health, but helping you feel proud and confident about your appearance. Far too often, patients avoid smiling or social situations altogether because they don’t like certain aspects of their looks, such as facial lines around their mouth, eyes, or eyebrows. Thankfully, Dr. G can help you remove them with one of his facial esthetic treatments! If you’re worried about facial lines making you appear older than you actually are, call us and schedule a consultation!
Many people don’t realize it, but dentists can actually perform Botox treatments when they’ve received the training necessary to do so. Botox is designed to prevent involuntary muscle contractions, resulting in wrinkles around specific areas of your face. After about 3 to 10 days following your treatment, the skin around your facial muscles will begin to smooth out. While your face will become more youthful in appearance, you will need to complete treatments every several months to ensure it stays this way.
Haven’t heard of Juvederm? It’s essentially a name-brand, injectable, dermal filler. Much like Botox, it can be used to smooth out the skin and target wrinkles. This includes the folds stretching from the nose to the mouth, frown lines, and the mouth to the chin. Instead of preventing muscle movements like Botox, Juvederm is designed to bring back volume to the skin and make it look fuller. Thankfully, those who may be concerned about completing treatment should know that it is virtually painless. Furthermore, you can expect them to last between three months and a year!
