How Is Botox Administered?

Botox is administered using a very thin needle. The process is very simple, and involves absolutely no pain or discomfort. Your dentist at Goldstein Garber & Salama will use a numbing cream to prepare the injection sites. Then, they will inject a precise amount of the Botox product into each area to produce the desired results.

The entire process takes only a few minutes. You’ll usually start seeing maximum results after about 1-2 weeks after the appointment, and your results will usually last between 3-4 months.

What Can Botox Address?

  • Cosmetic Issues – Most frequently, Botox is used to treat cosmetic issues like lines and wrinkles in the face. It can be used in the upper face, around the nose and eyes, and on the chin to reduce the appearance of folds, fine lines, and wrinkles by paralyzing some of your facial muscles.
  • Migraine Headaches – Botox has been approved by the FDA to treat migraines in patients who have chronic migraines. The exact method by which it treats migraines is unknown, but it’s a highly-effective, minimally-invasive option for patients with recurring headaches.
  • Teeth Grinding & TMJ – Botox can be used to treat overactive jaw muscles. This can be done for cosmetic purposes, such as slimming the masseter muscle, and also to treat oral health issues like TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder) and TMJ.

What Is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a type of “facial filler” or “dermal filler.” It’s one of the most reputable and well-known fillers on the market, and it’s made out of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is found naturally in the body. Using targeted injections, Juvederm helps “fill” out areas of the face to reduce wrinkles and lines and plump up the facial tissue.

What Does Juvederm Fix?

  • Plumps Lips – Juvederm and other fillers are commonly used to add volume to lips. Some people may have thin lips due to genetics, and advanced age also usually results in thinning of the lips, so lip injections can help provide a more youthful appearance.
  • Fills Out The Face – Juvederm is also commonly used to help fill out the face and treat things like sunken cheeks and bags under the eyes.
  • Reduces Wrinkles – Juvederm adds more volume to the face and can help reduce wrinkles, particularly when used alongside Botox. That’s why these two treatments are often paired together for the best results.
