It’s unavoidable, we’re all going to age. After years of daily wear, sun exposure, and unconscious muscle movements, our skin begins to tell our age. Many patients who invest in cosmetic dentistry services notice that their newly enhanced smiles make these fine lines and wrinkles even more noticeable. Botox and Juvederm are great treatments to pair with cosmetic dentistry. As you restore your flawless, youthful smile, Botox injections and Juvederm fillers allow you to reclaim a younger looking, wrinkle free appearance. At Capron Park Dental in Attleboro, we are happy to offer Botox Cosmetic and Juvederm fillers.

Botox was originally used for patients with muscle spasms and other injuries to help reduce unnecessary muscle movement, reduce swelling, and restore full, painless function. Using the same basic idea, Botox is also utilized to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. A skilled Botox provider will inject small doses of Botox in the affected areas. This will prevent the unconscious movements of the face that lead to wrinkles over time. For this reason, patients are encouraged to consider Botox injections before their wrinkles or fine lines are already formed as Botox can prevent these facial changes from occurring at all. Depending on the extent of fine lines and wrinkles, patients will need to receive follow up treatments every three or four months.
Similar to Botox, Juvederm is a cosmetic treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Rather than controlling the muscle movements that lead to wrinkles, Juvederm uses fillers to renew facial volume. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and the skin loses elasticity. Juvederm fillers are injected below the skin and shaped into position plumping and smoothing the skin. These simple treatments can be completed in less than an hour, and patients should plan to visit every four to six months for retreatment.
