While Botox injections can address oral conditions like TMJ Pain and TMD, our dentists also use Botox as cosmetic treatments to combat signs of aging, and to rejuvenate and refresh the skin. Injected directly into facial muscles, Botox block nerve signals causing contractions of the face in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes, mouth and forehead.
Unlike Botox, dermal filler is injected into the surface or dermal layer of the skin. By binding hyaluronic acid to water molecules in the skin, dermal filler creates a fuller appearance to target areas. It is most often used to treat lines around the mouth, and enhance cheek bones and lips, giving the skin a more youthful consistent appearance.
