Botox is an injectable neurotoxin treatment that is intended to improve the appearance of wrinkles with instant results and little-to-no downtime. The way it works is the Botox is injected into the area directly with a fine needle. This process reduces muscle movement making the muscle unable to contract therefore forcing wrinkles to soften and relax.
Botox takes about 3-5 days to take full effect and lasts 3-6 months. Generally, people use Botox on these areas:
Botox can also be used to treat a range of issues, such as:
Severe underarm sweating
Muscle Spasms in the neck and shoulder
Get natural-looking fuller lips with one easy and straightforward treatment. The way it works is we inject Botox directly into the upper lip; this relaxes the muscle above the lip which causes the lip to “flip” upwards without increasing the size of the actual lip. This new cosmetic procedure is growing in popularity because it is convenient, non-invasive and provides a subtle, natural looking fuller lip.
Injectable Dermal Fillers (Juvederm)
Fillers are a treatment used for deeper lines and wrinkles in the face. It is a gel-like substance, also injected directly into the area. It’s intended to restore volume and “plump” wrinkles and creases. Village of Dentistry proudly uses Juvederm for all dermal fillers treatments.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections (PRP)
PRP Injections are quickly gaining traction because of the variety of conditions it is used to treat. This treatment uses the patient’s own blood by collecting a sample and placing it into a device called a centrifuge. This process separates the blood components from the platelets and concentrates them within the plasma. The blood is then injected back into the patient via the problem area. This is meant to increase the concentration of specific bio proteins/hormones.
At Village of Dentistry we provide PRP injections for hair loss and skin rejuvenation.
