Q: What types of treatments are included in facial esthetics?
A: Facial esthetics encompasses a range of treatments aimed at enhancing the appearance and rejuvenating the face. This can include botox injections to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, dermal fillers to restore lost volume and plump up the skin, and other procedures to address facial asymmetry, jaw pain, and related concerns.
Q: How does botox work for facial esthetics?
A: Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin that is used in facial esthetics to temporarily relax the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles and fine lines. By injecting botox into specific areas of the face, Dr. Brandon can smooth out wrinkles, reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines, giving a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Q: What are dermal fillers and how do they work?
A: Dermal fillers are injectable substances, such as hyaluronic acid, that are used to restore lost volume, fill in wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. They work by plumping up the skin, smoothing out lines and wrinkles, and adding volume to areas that have lost fullness or definition. Dermal fillers can be used to address concerns such as thin lips, sunken cheeks, and nasolabial folds.
Q: Are these treatments safe?
A: Yes, when performed by a certified and experienced professional like Dr. Brandon, facial esthetic treatments such as botox and dermal fillers are generally safe. However, as with any medical procedure, there can be potential risks and side effects. It is important to have a thorough consultation with Dr. Brandon to discuss your goals, medical history, and any concerns you may have before proceeding with any facial esthetic treatment.
Q: How long do the effects of botox and fillers last?
A: The effects of botox and fillers can vary depending on the individual and the specific products used. Generally, the effects of botox can last around 3-4 months, while dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, depending on the type of filler used and the area treated. Dr. Brandon will provide you with more specific information about the expected duration of the effects during your consultation.
Q: Can I combine facial esthetic treatments with other dental procedures?
A: Yes, it is possible to combine facial esthetic treatments with other dental procedures.
