As of May 2012, Dr. Stefano has become an Associate Member of The American Academy of Facial Esthetics and is dedicated to the highest levels of education and excellence in the field of total facial aesthetics. You may reserve your time with Dr. Stefano for a complimentary consultation to receive treatment of Botox and Juvéderm. These are both prescription medications for people 18 to 65 years of age.
Botox is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines, crow’s feet, and smoker’s lines. It can also be used for bruxism, clenching, and TMJ pain.
Juvéderm is a smooth injectable gel filler that helps restore your skin’s volume and smooths away facial wrinkles and folds. It leaves you with a natural look and feel that holds up over time, so everyone will notice (but no one will know)!
Noticeable results, no surgery, and no recovery time: discover the benefits of Botox at our practice.
There are many different reasons patients choose to receive Botox treatment. From wanting to remove fine lines and wrinkles to treating more severe cases like TMJ and chronic migraines, Botox can help relieve any of the symptoms that make you feel less confident, while helping you achieve a more youthful, radiant appearance.
What is Botox Cosmetic?
Botox is a medication that can only be prescribed to you by a healthcare professional. It is used to treat patients temporarily between the ages of 18 and 65. Botox treatments are quick and comfortable, and within hours you will begin to notice a difference in the way your skin looks and feels.
How does Botox work?
Botox uses a special protein to block overactive nerve impulses, and restrict muscle contractions. In doing so, Botox helps to relax the muscles beneath the skin, so fine lines and wrinkles become less visible, which gives the skin a healthy, more youthful appearance.
Depending on each individual case, the results can last between one and six months. Treatment is temporary, and once the Botox begins to wear off, the skin will return to the way it looked before treatment.
Botox is also used to relieve symptoms of TMJ, as well as provide comfort to patients receiving dental implants. In each care, Botox is used to reduce the amount of stress placed on the teeth and jaw so patients feel comfortable and confident.
Am I a good candidate for Botox?
Botox may or may not be the right treatment for you. The best candidates for treatment with Botox are:
- Between the ages of 18 and 65
- Diagnosed with, and experiencing discomfort from, TMJ
- Concerned with removing wrinkles and fine lines
- Looking for a non-surgical skin treatment
- Aware that Botox results are temporary
- In good physical and psychological health
- Willing to discuss their concerns and desires with their dentist before treatment
If you feel that you are a good candidate for a Botox treatment, and are interested in learning more, please contact our practice to schedule a consultation. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Turn Back the Hands of Time
As we all know, aging is a natural part of life. And with aging, our faces begin to develop unwanted lines and wrinkles that make us appear older. Many of us reminisce over the days when our skin was wrinkle-free and our faces were more youthful.
What if you could turn back the hands of time and return to those days of a more youthful, wrinkle-free appearance? Now you can, with the clinically-proven and best-selling Juvéderm XC dermal filler.
What is Juvéderm XC, and how can it help?
Juvéderm XC is an injectable gel dermal filler. It’s a safe, comfortable, and effective treatment that restores your face’s natural contours and smoothness. With just one injection of the Juvéderm XC dermal filler, you can have smooth, beautiful skin that can last up to a whole year.
Juvéderm XC works by filling missing hyaluronic acid (what keeps your skin naturally hydrated and full) into your skin and adds volume and fullness to your face. In this process, the Juvéderm XC dermal filler eases away unwanted wrinkles and lines, and restores and rejuvenates your face to its more youthful appearance.
