BOTOX® Cosmetic vs. Dermal Fillers in Cosmetic Dentistry

Bernardsville cosmetic dentist Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb is pleased to offer both BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers to address unattractive signs of aging around the lips, mouth, and throughout the face. However, these two cosmetic services, while similar, work in very different ways and provide very different benefits. Both options can simultaneously accentuate your smile while creating a smooth and more youthful appearance, but the specific signs of aging that need to be addressed in your skin will determine which of these services Dr. Swaintek-Lamb will recommend.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is used to smooth wrinkles and deep creases such as:

BOTOX® Cosmetic is used to treat both dynamic wrinkles (those that appear when the face is moving) and static wrinkles (those that are always present) by relaxing the underlying muscles. Once muscles are relaxed, skin is better able to smooth over the area and wrinkles are greatly diminished for three to four months. To maintain results, you will need to visit our Morristown area office for touchups two to three times a year.

Dermal fillers can be used to:

The fillers offered by our Bernardsville cosmetic dentist contain hyaluronic acid, which is essential for soft and youthful skin. Fillers work by adding volume to wrinkled, sunken, or hallowed areas of the face and lips, producing a fuller and more appealing look for 12 or more months. As with BOTOX® Cosmetic, additional application of Restylane® and Juvéderm® will be necessary to maintain results, although not as frequently.

Both dermal fillers and Botox® Cosmetic can greatly improve your appearance and work to accentuate your beautiful smile. During your initial consultation with Dr. Swaintek-Lamb it can be determined which option will meet your specific needs.
