We Offer Botox®/Dermal Fillers in Cherry Creek
What Is Botox®/Dermal Fillers?
At Cherry Creek Family Dentistry, we want to provide you with the best all-around oral care to prevent common problems and keep your smile bright and beautiful for the rest of your life. We’re also pleased to offer a range of facial aesthetic services meant to enhance the appearance of your smile. Whether you’ve undergone whitening, restoration, alignment, or other procedures to elevate the appearance of your smile, you may start to notice that surrounding tissue doesn’t compliment your dental work as well as you’d like.
Over time, it’s only natural for signs of aging to appear in the form of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. You needn’t take the risk of visiting questionable lunchtime facelift clinics. Instead, let the trained experts at Cherry Creek Family Dentistry deliver superior medical care and aesthetic artistry that will best complement your perfect smile. Our Botox and dermal filler treatments provide the subtle lifting and firming that refreshes your appearance and helps you to look and feel your best.
Botox injections are a non-invasive, non-surgical means of treating fine lines and wrinkles, and this treatment is largely used for crow’s feet, frown lines, and other common facial imperfections. When small, diluted doses are injected into the muscles that cause wrinkles to appear, Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles, impeding targeted muscle contractions and allowing the face to relax, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
The procedure is quick and generally requires no anesthetic. It may take a few days for the full results to appear, and you can expect the effects to last about 4-6 months. Often, as muscles regain activity, wrinkles will continue to appear less pronounced than before, but if you enjoy the results of your Botox treatment, you can always schedule visits for maintenance when the effects start to wear off.
Botox can produce miraculous results under the right circumstances, but it isn’t right for every cosmetic concern. While ideal for treating wrinkles caused by muscle movement, it is not recommended for fine lines caused by sagging and reduction of elasticity in the skin (also known as static wrinkles). For example, you wouldn’t want to inject Botox as a treatment for crepiness around the mouth or even for laugh lines (or nasolabial lines).
This is where dermal fillers can lend an assist. These injectable gels are designed for safe use in cosmetic procedures, and when applied to targeted areas, they can produce incredible results. FDA-approved dermal fillers are used to plump skin in and around the injection site and some not only add volume, but even stimulate natural collagen growth. Depending on the dermal filler you choose, results could last anywhere from 6-24 months.
The combination of Botox and dermal fillers can deliver the subtle rejuvenation you need to freshen your look and perfectly complement your dental work. When you finally achieve the radiant smile you’ve been dreaming of, it’s only natural to want surrounding facial tissue to match. The experts at Cherry Creek Family Dental are pleased to deliver the comprehensive cosmetic care you expect and deserve.
