Botox® & Dermal Fillers
Dr. Yurovsky recognizes that the overall aesthetics of your face contribute greatly to your smile. Thus, she combines cosmetic dentistry with rejuvenating facial aesthetics to achieve your optimum smile.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a protein derived from botulism toxin that is injected underneath skin in order to minimize or smooth out lines and wrinkles on the face. When low doses of Botox are used, it actually relaxes facial muscles, giving the recipient a clean, smooth facial appearance.
Botox® is a purified protein toxin produced by the clostridium botulinum bacteria and has been used in the medical field since 1980. For cosmetic purposes, Botox is used in extremely small doses and does not spread throughout the body.
As we age, our bodies’ natural ability to maintain the smooth, taught, and plump appearance of our skin diminishes. With Dermal Fillers, restoring your skin’s youthful state is quick, easy, and ultimately long lasting.
Dermal Fillers have become an increasingly popular alternative to surgical face-lifts because they are minimally invasive and produce a more natural-looking appearance. They are injected under the skin to effectively and safely fill in wrinkles, scars and lines. The most popular uses include reducing smile lines, fine lines above the mouth, frown lines, and acne scars. Dermal Fillers can also be used to increase lip fullness.
Botox® can also be used as an alternative treatment for TMJ (Temporo-Mandibular Joint) Disorders and associated jaw tightness and pain. When injected into the tense, painful facial muscles, Botox® can relieve the TMJ and jaw tension in many patients. These injections often eliminate headaches that result from teeth grinding, and, in cases of severe stress, Botox® can even minimize lock jaw.
