Botox® & Dermal Fillers

Dr. Yurovsky recognizes that the overall aesthetics of your face contribute a considerable amount to that of your smile. For this reason, she combines cosmetic dentistry with rejuvenating facial aesthetics procedures to achieve your optimum smile.

Many patients who receive cosmetic treatments report that injections performed by dentists are quicker and less painful than injections performed by other healthcare professionals.

To say that Botox® is a popular aesthetic procedure would be an immense understatement. Over the past 20 years, since the introduction of this rejuvenation treatment, this treatment has become the single most commonly performed and minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in this country.

What Is Botox®?

Botox® is a protein derived from botulism toxin, which is injected underneath the skin to minimize or smooth out fine lines and wrinkles on the face. When low doses of Botox® are used, it relaxes facial muscles, giving the recipient a clean, smooth facial appearance.

Botox® has been used in the medical field since 1980. In minimal doses, Botox® is used for cosmetic purposes and does not spread throughout the body. Therefore, Botox® injections should only be administered by a trained dentist who understands the procedure’s cosmetic and dental aspects.

Dermal Fillers

As we age, our body’s natural ability to maintain our skin's smooth, taut, and plump appearance fades. 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 facelifts because they are minimally invasive and, as a result, produce a more natural-looking appearance. They are injected under the skin to effectively and safely reduce wrinkles, scars, and lines.

The most popular uses include reducing smile lines, fine lines above the mouth, frown lines, and acne scars. A Dermal filler can also be used to increase lip fullness. Dermal fillers can complement cosmetic dentistry procedures to create a truly stunning and youthful smile.

TMJ Relief

Botox® can also be used as an alternative treatment for TMJ (Temporo-Mandibular Joint) Disorders and associated jaw tightness and pain. Botox® can relieve TMJ and jaw tension in many patients when injected into the tense, painful facial muscles. In many cases, these injections will eliminate the headaches resulting from teeth grinding, and in cases of severe stress, Botox® can even minimize lockjaw.
