Botox and fillers are cosmetic injectables that help reduce signs of aging and some types of jaw and heachache pain. Fillers can restore lost facial volume to help you look many years younger. Botox contains botulinum toxin type A, a neurotoxin that paralyzes facial muscles responsible for smile, frown, and laugh lines.
Some of the many benefits associated with Botox and fillers include:
Botox and filler injections are fast and virtually painless, and there’s no downtime afterward.
To find out if you’re a good candidate for Botox and fillers, Dr. Chaudhry reviews your oral health and medical history and examines your face, mouth, teeth, gums, and jaw. She might recommend you undergo digital X-rays using the Dexis system or joint vibration analysis to assess TMJ damage.
Dr. Chaudhry also discusses your desired outcome and personalizes a treatment that lines up with your preferences.
Right before your injections, Dr. Chaudhry can numb the treatment area so you don’t feel any pain. She uses a tiny needle to gently inject Botox, fillers, or both into targeted areas of your face, head, or neck. Doing so can reduce wrinkles, lines, headache pain, and TMJ pain. Each injection usually lasts just a few seconds.
After Botox or filler injections, you might experience redness or swelling at the injection site. Avoid touching the affected area right after your treatment. There’s no downtime after Botox and filler injections, so you can resume normal everyday activities right away.
To achieve the most effective, long-lasting results, Dr. Chaudhry recommends repeat injections every few months or years in some cases.
Don’t live with headache pain, TMJ pain, fine lines, or wrinkles when simple cosmetic injections offer a younger-looking appearance and less discomfort. To find out if Botox and fillers are right for you, call Ardsley Dental Spa to schedule an appointment or book one online today.
