Advanced facial esthetics services are non-surgical cosmetic medical treatments that can dramatically improve your appearance while still allowing for freedom of expression. At Optima Dental Spa, we can turn back the hands of the clock with BOTOX® and dermal fillers. Read on to learn what these facial esthetics services could do for you!
BOTOX is an injectable drug derived from a neurotoxin, Botulinum toxin, produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria. But don’t worry–our licensed professionals are trained to safely administer this drug so it does not cause negative systemic side effects. The drug relaxes the facial muscles by blocking signals from the brain that would otherwise cause them to contract. By preventing muscles from pulling on your skin, BOTOX can smooth out wrinkles, fine lines, smile lines, and crow’s feet. Not only does BOTOX reduce both the appearance and worsening of current wrinkles, it helps prevent the development of new wrinkles. This is because less muscle movement means less stress on the attached skin.
With BOTOX, your skin will still feel hot, cold, and pressure, but its youthful appearance will be restored. While the actual treatment takes only 10-15 minutes, results last between three and five months! Additionally, BOTOX can help ease pain associated with chronic headaches.
Dermal fillers are an injectable treatment of hyaluronic acid that can be used to smooth out the face, reshape the lips, and reduce the appearance of scars by improving the skin’s elasticity and fullness. Collagen is a natural protein in the body that prevents sagging. It acts like a scaffold throughout the body by giving tissues strength and structure. The body also produces hyaluronic acid. This helps provide a moist environment for stretched collagen to remain strong and intact. Fillers gently lift and plump the skin by infusing gels derived from hyaluronic acid into sagging areas of the skin.
The amount of filler needed depends on how much collagen and volume has been lost in the affected area. Treatment time is usually between 20-40 minutes, with immediate natural-looking volume. The youthful results last between four to six months, but the injection may also prompt your body to produce its own collagen. And a healthy amount of collagen will further lessen the appearance of wrinkles.
