You take care of your teeth because you know what an important place a healthy, appealing mouth has in your overall looks and well-being. Now, it’s time to take care of your lips and facial skin.
As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, creating fine lines and wrinkles around our mouths and eyes that can make us appear older than we feel. Dr. Cannilla has the training and knowledge to provide patients with the ability to care for these areas.
Regain youthful-looking skin with BOTOX injections, Juvéderm and Restylane facial fillers. These safe and effective skin-enhancement treatments can erase signs of aging creating a fresher, younger, and more confident you!
With BOTOX, our patients can further enhance their beautiful smiles with smooth, youthful facial skin. A common scenario is to use BOTOX for dynamic wrinkles otherwise know as the wrinkles present during a muscle activity.
BOTOX treatments are simple and safe, and can be completed by Dr. Cannilla in as little as ten minutes. The non-surgical procedure is easily performed in the office, and consists of only a few tiny injections that will improve lines, wrinkles and furrows caused by excessive facial movements such as excessive frowning. Within days you will see wrinkles and lines on your forehead, around your eyes, and between your eyebrows fade away as the injections relax facial muscles. You’ll be back to your daily activities immediately, anticipating a fresher, younger look that will last for months.
BOTOX injections are only a temporary solution to treat wrinkles. The effects last three to six months and will require additional treatments.There are minimal risks of BOTOX when used in limited doses for cosmetic dynamic wrinkles. Common side effects include bruising, swelling or a burning sensation while the injection is taking place. We recommend not to take Aspirin, Mortin, Advil or other analgesics two weeks before injection to avoid bruising.
In most cases, Botox is indicated for lines between the brows, forehead, and eyes, whereas Juvéderm and Restylane are used to treat lines around the mouth and to plump up the lips. Facial fillers can be used to enhance your lips and to provide a firm foundation under surface skin to support facial wrinkles to lie flat as they did years ago. Turn back the clock to a time when your facial skin was smooth and supple and your lips were plump and sensuous.
Juvéderm and Restylane are based on a natural, plant-derived substance called hyaluronic acid. This safe, non-allergenic ingredient binds to water molecules in the skin, creating a firm, plump underlying foundation. Skin lies smooth and looks youthful again. This product is especially a good choice for the lines that run from the nose to the corners of your mouth, and it works for almost all skin types and colors. Easy to tolerate and non-invasive, facial fillers give you fast results.
Botox and Juvéderm have proven to be a perfect complement to teeth whitening and other cosmetic dental procedures. Contact us today to set up an appointment to discuss your skin rejuvenating options in our convenient Montville New Jersey office.
