Botox is gaining popularity across the world as a frontline method to treat stubborn wrinkles and TMJ/orofacial pain. It provides a simple, natural way to reduce wrinkles and refresh your skin.
Botox works by treating the underlying muscle activity and reducing their ability to contract as tightly. When they cannot contract as tightly, they cannot wrinkle the skin that covers the muscle. By injecting the correct amount into the muscles, the skin looks smoother and more youthful, still allowing you to smile and control the muscles of your face.
At Dugas Dental, we provide a small, therapeutic amount of Botox into certain areas to enhance your smile and smooth away wrinkles. The quick, painless procedure reduces facial muscle activity and can be completed in just 15-20 minutes. Most of our patients return back to work right away without any down-time. If you have crow’s feet, frown lines, or other facial wrinkles that concern you, please schedule a complimentary consult with Dr. Dugas at (740) 548-0575.
What to expect
Treatments generally take 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the area. The procedure consists of a few tiny injections, with very localized effects that will not impact your ability to smile, laugh, or show expression. With minimal discomfort and no downtime, Botox fits into your lifestyle and schedule.
Botox is not an instant fix and takes 7 to 10 days to truly show its effect. Please do not plan to receive Botox on the day of your wedding or right before a big event. Most experts agree that you can expect to see visible results in 10 days to 2 weeks. Botox treatments typically last for 3 to 4 months. Most people who choose Botox receive treatments at least a few times a year.
Juvéderm XC Facial Filler
JUVEDERM XC ® is the smooth gel that is easily injected under the skin or into the lips. Dugas Dental uses Juvéderm to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year. If you’re looking to subtly enhance your smile, please reach out and schedule a complimentary consult with Dr. Dugas at (740) 548-0575.
Where does Juvéderm work?
Everyone’s skin ages differently and JUVEDERM XC may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas. From smile lines to vertical lip lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours. The aging process is especially noticeable on our lips, where once full lips become pencil thin and flat. There are more advanced areas where Juvéderm can help improve the loss of volume in your skin, but at Dugas Dental, we focus more on the lips, marionette lines, and philtrum. Restore lost volume, and get you the lips of your dreams!
