Botox® & Dermal Fillers

Dr. Yurovsky recognizes the fact that the overall aesthetics of your face contribute a large amount to those of your smile. It is for this reason that she combines cosmetic dentistry with rejuvenating facial aesthetics procedures to achieve your optimum smile. To say that Botox® is a popular aesthetic procedure would be an immense understatement. Over the past 20 years since the introduction of this rejuvenation treatment, this treatment has become the single most commonly performed and minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in this country.

What Is Botox®?

Botox® is a protein, derived from botulism toxin, which is injected underneath the skin in order to minimize or smooth out lines and wrinkles on the face. When low doses of Botox® are used, it actually relaxes facial muscles, giving the recipient a clean, smooth facial appearance.

Botox® has been used in the medical field since 1980. For cosmetic purposes, Botox® is used in extremely small doses, and does not spread throughout the body.

Dermal Fillers

As we age, our bodies’ natural ability to maintain the smooth, taught, and plump appearance of our skin fades. With dermal fillers, restoring your skin’s youthful state is quick, easy, and, ultimately, long-lasting.

Dermal fillers have become an increasingly popular alternative to surgical facelifts because they are minimally invasive, and as a result produce a more natural-looking appearance. They are injected under the skin to effectively and safely fill in wrinkles, scars, and lines. The most popular uses include reducing smile lines, fine lines above the mouth, frown lines, and acne scars. Dermal fillers can also be used to increase lip fullness.

TMJ Relief

Botox® can also be used as an alternative treatment for TMJ (Temporo-Mandibular Joint) Disorders and associated jaw tightness and pain. When injected into the tense, painful facial muscles, Botox® can relieve the TMJ and jaw tension in many patients. These injections in many cases will eliminate the headaches which can result from teeth grinding, and, in cases of severe stress, Botox® can even minimize lockjaw.
