BOTOX Cosmetic and Juvéderm in Milwaukee
Dentists are experts on the anatomy and physiology of the head and neck, including the muscles and structure of your face. It makes sense that some of the country’s top dentists would expand their services to include certain types of facial rejuvenation. At our dental spa, these types of services complement others we offer to assist patients in improving their health, comfort, and appearance.
Over time, tension, smiling, and repetitive facial movements can cause lines and wrinkles to form on your face, giving you an older or sometimes cranky appearance. At WisconsinSmiles, Dr. Robert Monteagudo provides non-invasive solutions to address some of the most common and frustrating age-related problems.
Wrinkle Reduction with BOTOX® Cosmetic
BOTOX Cosmetic is a prescription medication that Dr. Monteagudo can inject into certain muscles in your face to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It allows those muscles to relax and provides a smooth appearance. BOTOX is especially useful for those twin lines between your eyebrows that you knit together while thinking or concentrating. Those lines can make you appear angry, even when you’re not. That’s why they call it “the angry eleven.”
When injected directly into certain facial muscles, BOTOX encourages those muscles to relax. Don’t worry, your face will still be expressive, and you can smile and show emotion. We target specific muscles that cause lines and wrinkles and leave the rest of your muscles alone.
Common places for BOTOX injections are your forehead, between your eyebrows, the corners of your eyes (crow’s feet), and your smile lines. BOTOX is a temporary treatment that lasts between three to six months, is highly effective, and has no downtime. You can have BOTOX on your lunch hour and then head right back to work.
Filling in Lines and Wrinkles with Juvéderm
Do you already have deep lines around your smile? Juvéderm may provide you with a solution. If you have the parentheses around your smile that give you a marionette appearance, we can fill in those deep lines with Juvéderm. Juvéderm is an FDA approved filler that plumps up the appearance of fine lines around your mouth and nose. The effects are temporary and may require touch-ups in the future.
Juvéderm is a fast, effective, and non-surgical way to improve your appearance.
TMJ and Headache Relief with BOTOX® Cosmetic
BOTOX Cosmetic is not just for good looks. More and more dentists are finding BOTOX useful in the treatment of headaches caused by facial tension and TMJD – temporomandibular joint disorder, or jaw pain. Strategically injecting BOTOX into certain facial muscles and your jaw muscles can help to reduce symptoms temporarily. Dr. Monteagudo can provide complementary treatment to address your underlying issue in order to provide you relief from jaw pain and related headaches.
