BOTOX & FILLERS
As one of the leading dental practices of the greater Boston area, Stoneham Dental Care is happy to provide Botox® and dermal fillers as a part of the therapeutic and facial treatments to our patients. A beautiful smile is enhanced by beautiful skin, which is achieved by the cosmetic facial procedures of Botox® and dermal fillers.
Botox® is a treatment which temporarily smooths moderate to severe frown lines in areas such as the forehead, brow, eyes or lips (especially "gummy smiles") by reducing the activity of the muscles. It is composed of a purified protein of the clostridium botulinum bacterium. It effects last up to 4 months. The procedure takes about 10 minutes to complete and includes a few small injections. A noticeable change will appear within 4 days. Botulinum is also used in the treatment for TMJ, for pain associated with jaw clenching and grinding.
This treatment is commonly known as trigger point injections, which can ease facial pain from headaches, migraines, and grinding of teeth. Dry needling and botulin toxin for trigger point injections in the head and neck muscles are very effective treatments. Often, they can provide immediate relief or relief that can last up to 3 months. Pain symptoms may return after 3 months and treatment will need to be repeated. Often with multiple treatment sessions you can retrain your muscles. You will notice a lessening of symptoms and notice that the pain resolves for longer periods of time.
Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm®, work by filling in lost volume of the face and softening the appearances of wrinkles. The most common areas which benefit from the fillers include: nasolabial folds (line from your nose to the corners of your mouth), marionette lines (line from the corners of your mouth to your chin), cheeks, and lips.
