BOTOX Cosmetic is an FDA-approved treatment that paralyzes your muscles upon injection. It is made with a toxin known as botulinum, which is taken from a microbe responsible for causing botulism. Although this sounds dangerous, it is purified and safe to use.
At McDowell Dental Group, we use it to help treat a wide array of conditions. In the case of BOTOX Cosmetic, we use it to treat fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines.
Collagen is a protein our bodies naturally produce and is responsible for providing the body with structure. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is what provides hydration and allows our skin to be more flexible. As we age, however, our skin will start to produce less collagen and hyaluronic acid over time. This can cause our facial area to lose volume.
This is why we offer Juvéderm! Juvéderm is a dermal filler designed to help people restore volume in their face, reduce signs of aging, and treat folds and wrinkles. We offer our clients multiple forms of Juvéderm, which include the following:
- Juvéderm XC
- Juvéderm Voluma XC
- Juvéderm Volbella XC
- Juvéderm Injectable Gel Procedure
PDO Thread Lifts
A PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure where dissolvable sutures are inserted into target areas of the face. These sutures will interact with a patient’s skin by triggering a cell known as fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are responsible for producing collagen.
Stimulating the body’s collagen production can help plump up a patient’s skin, which can help reduce any fine lines and wrinkles. The PDO thread lift procedure usually takes about 45 minutes to complete, but it may take longer depending on the patient’s needs.
Skin rejuvenation is often sought out for various reasons. Some people need it to help treat acne scars, while others may have an uneven skin tone. It is because of these types of problems that managing your skin can be difficult at times.
That is why we are proud to announce that McDowell Dental Group offers patients the latest in skincare technology: the TempSure Envi! TempSure Envi uses radiofrequency waves that heat up a patient’s skin in a gentle yet therapeutic manner. The heat produced by the radio frequencies will then trigger the body’s natural collagen production to produce new collagen. Once completed, your skin will be left looking smooth and youthful as ever!
