At Paducah Dental Care we believe that a youthful look begins with a healthy smile, however, we know that it doesn't end there. That is why we are pleased to offer Botox© and other Dermafillers to compliment your great smile. We can use Botox to smooth out forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crows . It can also be used to fill in lips and facial areas around the mouth, chin and nose. When used correctly, Botox can give you that youthful glow without the appearance that you had anything done.
Botox© is a safe, effective, proven method of smoothing out wrinkles in the forehead, around the eyes, mouth, and the bridge of the nose. It is injected into muscles that over time cause skin to wrinkle, and once this muscle activity is reduced, skin overlying the muscles is allowed to regain a smoother, more youthful look. There are many misconceptions about Botox©. First of all, Botox© is not a poison, but a protein created by a bacteria. There are no live or dead bacteria in Botox©. Botox© works by reducing muscle activity. Secondly, this action is not permanent, but typically lasts three to four months, at which time the patient may elect to retreat with Botox©.
Dermafiller is a general term used to describe bio-compatible materials placed within or under the skin to replace tissue lost by normal aging. Over time, the facial tissue loses elasticity and volume, causing folds around the mouth, nose, and chin. Gravity causes this tissue to sag and folds develop. The volume that is lost is largely a natural substance produced by the body called hyaluronic acid. The Dermafillers used by Paducah Dental Care are made up of this same material, and are injected within the skin to replace the same material lost during the aging process.
Just as we do with all of the dental procedures we offer, we take every precaution to make sure that the process is as painless as possible. Our patients are numb for this procedure and generally report little to no discomfort.
