Did you know that the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatment in the United States is BOTOX®?
Did you also know that BOTOX® has proven therapeutic uses and can be used to treat gummy smiles, teeth clenching and other symptoms of TMD?
Dentists are well-versed and extremely proficient in injections. Additionally, dentists are specialists in the muscles of mastication and facial expression, which routinely receive these treatments.
Dr. Andrea Asseff is uniquely qualified to provide you with not only the smile of your dreams, but also help you achieve a younger, more appealing look and relieve painful conditions triggered by the muscles of the jaw.
Specializing in all levels of aesthetic treatments, Dr. Andrea Asseff uses the latest and most innovative techniques for these procedures. These non-invasive procedures are considered a safe, effective way of treating aging skin. Common areas for injections include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows, upper and lower lips and “crow’s feet” around the eyes.
You can use BOTOX® and Juvederm treatments at the same time. As both the treatments target different areas of your facial skin, it is completely safe to use them simultaneously. During an initial consultation, Dr. Andrea Asseff can determine which minimally-invasive injections will better suit your cosmetic needs. She can answer your questions about specific dermal injectables and assess your skin’s individual conditions to predict which dermal injectable will best produce the desired results.
Both Botox and Juvederm are safe and effective ways to rejuvenate the appearance of skin and combat the signs of aging. So which one is right for you?
BOTOX® is a puriefied protien that reduces the activity of the muscles that cause wrinkles such as frown lines, worry lines and crow’s feet.
BOTOX® works by temporarily blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles, thereby reducing muscle movement and causing wrinkles to relax and soften. BOTOX® is also used by experienced injectors to lift areas of the face and extend the life of some dermal filler applications.
BOTOX® is quick-acting, with results typically visible within 3-5 days, and lasting for 3-6 months. It can be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments.
Dermal Fillers, such as Juvederm, are gel-like substances that use a hyaluronic acid-based gel to literally “fill in” wrinkles and rejuvenate aging skin.
Dermal fillers are injected in the areas around your mouth and nose to replace the natural substances in our facial skin that we lose due to ageing. This eliminates smile lines and facial folds.
