Botox© and Dermal Fillers

At South River Periodontics, we offer our patients the benefits of Botox® Cosmetic dermal fillers. What better way to enhance your freshly whitened smile, beautiful veneers, or straighter teeth than with a newly refreshed and more youthful appearance? Men and women alike can enjoy the benefits of these procedures, completed in our office in less than an hour.

What is Botox® Cosmetic and how does it work?
Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into your facial muscles. It is used to reduce the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and “crow’s feet” that develop around the eyes. It works by blocking the nerve impulses to the injected sites, reducing the muscle activity that causes these persistent lines to form. The effects of Botox® cosmetic are temporary, lasting up to 4 months.

Why should I consider Botox® Cosmetic?
You may have noticed frown lines between your brows or “crow’s feet” near your eyes, making you look tired or even older than you should. Ask Dr. Bouffard if Botox® is right for you. Real results, no surgery, and no recovery time necessary are a few of the reasons to choose treatment with Botox® Cosmetic.

Is there any medical reason to use Botox® Cosmetic?
Yes. Botox® Cosmetic may be used in treatment of Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ/TMD). Botox® Cosmetic is injected into facial and jaw muscles to provide relief from jaw tension and soreness. Additionally, these injections can reduce bruxism (teeth grinding), minimize lockjaw, and eliminate bruxism headaches.

Will I still be able to have facial expressions?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with Botox® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised, just without the wrinkles and creases.

How long can I expect my results to last?
Visible results can last up to 4 months. Your own results may vary. Dr. Bouffard will discuss with you what you should expect and when you should schedule your next appointment.

JUVÉDERM®

What are JUVÉDERM® and JUVÉDERM Voluma® and how do they work?
JUVÉDERM® is a collection of cosmetic fillers, each made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in skin that helps it retain moisture, soft texture, and proper volume. JUVÉDERM® products are used to help restore skin to its age-correct texture and volume and to reverse the effects of wrinkles and skin volume loss.

Why should I consider JUVÉDERM® products?
Skin volume loss and wrinkling can cause your face to look tired or older than it should. By choosing treatment with JUVÉDERM® products, you can restore the youthful look and feel of your skin.

How many treatments will I need to see results?
Most patients see their desired results in only one treatment.

How long will the results last?
The results with JUVÉDERM® products generally last for about 9-12 months for a single treatment.

Is there anything I need to do after the treatment?
For the first 24 hours following treatment with JUVÉDERM® products, you should avoid strenuous exercise, extensive exposure to sun or heat, and alcoholic beverages. If this is not followed, you may experience some minor temporary redness, swelling, or itching at the injection site.

Does treatment with JUVÉDERM® products require any incisions in the skin?
No, there are no incisions required with treatment, which means that recovery time is minimal.

How will I know if JUVÉDERM® products are right for me?
Ask our doctor for a consultation and recommended treatment options. We will consider your personal goals, overall health, and any medications you are taking when advising you whether JUVÉDERM® products may be right for you.
