What are cosmetic injectables?
When patients think of treatments such as Botox and Juvéderm, they may think of their local cosmetic dermatologist. However, more and more dentists are offering these injectables as a side treatment to combine with routine dental visits. Most of these injectables are effective in addressing common concerns such as nasolabial folds or smile lines that can impact one’s appearance. Dr. Eric Wiitala of Scottsdale, AZ is a dentist who is pleased to offer both these injectables as a cosmetic services alongside cosmetic dentistry treatments.
• Botox – Botox is known world-wide as a cosmetic service that can erase fine lines, wrinkles, and folds that may develop on the face. This medication is a neuromodulator, and it works by reducing muscle contractions where it is injected. Botox is completely safe and when administered by an experienced professional, can help patients achieve a more youthful appearance by smoothing these lines for up to nine months after the initial injections.
• Juvéderm – another injectable available at the office of Dr. Eric Wiitala is that of Juvéderm. Juvéderm is part of a wider line of dermal fillers that works by filling the wrinkle directly to add volume and smooth their appearance. Juvéderm is formulated with hyaluronic acid which attracts water molecules in the skin. Juvéderm can last approximately six months and can treat many wrinkles and folds around the facial area.
