Facial Rejuvenation & Botox Therapy

There are an estimated 26 million people in the U.S. who suffer with migraine headaches. Could a dentist help?

BOTOX is used in facial muscles afflicted with pain and soreness, usually caused by improper bite, tension, severe stress and grinding or clenching. It relaxes those muscles and reduces their size and the amount of pressure you can exert during clenching and grinding is significantly reduced. That can minimize wear and tear on your teeth and maintain a healthy and a youthful smile.

Although using Botox isn’t a permanent cure for grinding, a few sessions can teach the muscles to relax over time.

One BOTOX treatment can provide relief for up to three months, and a side benefit is the reduced appearance of lines and wrinkles. You’ll look AND feel refreshed!

Benefits of therapeutic and cosmetic Botox ® and Dermal fillers also include:

  • Headaches relief from grinding, especially for patients who can’t tolerate wearing a Nightguard.
  • Gummy smiles due to a hyper mobile upper lip.
  • An upside-down (reverse) smile where the corner of mouth is dropped.
  • Protecting your porcelain restorations and implants from fracturing by relaxing the mastication muscles and reduce the load on your investment.

BOTOX and Juvederm for Facial Rejuvenation

At Mesilla Valley Family Dentistry, we offer BOTOX and dermal fillers such as Juvederm to rejuvenate your appearance. These injectable treatments can be used to treat the common signs of aging.

Juvederm is an injectable filler to help a smoother and supple facial appearance. The transparent gel is injected into the dermis of your face to add volume and lift. Its biocompatibility works to supplement the body’s natural hyaluronic acid, which is depleted with age. BOTOX, on the other hand, blocks nerve activity in the facial muscles. This FDA-approved treatment temporarily rids a patient’s face of frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines to provide better relaxation to one’s appearance.

Schedule your complimentary consultation appointment to learn more about how Botox ® and Juvederm can complement your new dazzling smile or ask us next time you come in.
