Juvederm, Botox, & Dermal Fillers
in Fairfield, CT
Botox is a cosmetic treatment that relaxes wrinkles, fine lines, and frown lines. It works by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles and smoothing wrinkles. This treatment can be used around the lips, the nose, the eyes, and throughout the face and neck.
In addition to aesthetics, Botox can also be used therapeutically. Many dentists have found it to play a large role in reducing certain dental issues like tension in the jaw, TMJ disorder, facial pain or muscle spasms, and more. Targeted treatment helps to relax the proper muscle so that the pain - and all the side effects that come with it - is diminished.
Because a Botox injection involves temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles, it is important to have it administered by a specialist, such as Dr. Donald Miller who has in-depth knowledge and understanding of the facial structure and muscles.
The results from Botox can last about 3 to 4 months.
Juvéderm is a cosmetic treatment known as a dermal filler that is used to give patients a more youthful appearance. It helps to smooth out lines and wrinkles that come with aging by boosting lost volume. The FDA-approved solution contains a combination of hyaluronic acid and other substances that work to fill in lines and plump up facial areas with age-related lost volume.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally found within the body. As it is injected, it begins stimulating the production of collagen. Juvéderm can be used in different places and for different reasons, including removing lines between the eyebrows, lips, mouth, chin, and nose. It can also volumize the middle portion of the face, plump the sunken area beneath the lower eyelids, and enhance your lips.
Juvéderm does have common side effects, including redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising at the injection site. These side effects are typically mild and resolve on their own.
The results from Juvéderm treatment can last up to a year.
