Your smile is an important feature of your overall look and your self-confidence, but it’s not the only one. If your facial skin is overly wrinkled, worn, or filled with noticeable lines, even the most potent cosmetic dental services might not leave patients satisfied in the end. Thankfully, Dr. Cheung is happy to provide services that extend beyond the teeth and gums here at Esthetic Image Dentistry! Just like our name suggests, we want to help you achieve the image of your dreams that makes you want to live life to the fullest. Please contact us today to schedule a consultation here in Plano.
BOTOX® is a medication that patients receive through an injection, and it’s designed to weaken and/or block altogether the movement of certain muscles that contract regularly, causing lines around the eyes and the patient’s forehead. You won’t lose feeling in the area because it’s designed to only affect muscles and not nerves, and the procedure is virtually pain-free and takes minutes to complete. The results can last months at a time too.
Botox may be the right option for you if you’re concerned with wrinkles and lines on the upper portion of your face. In addition to the clear cosmetic benefits, Botox treatment has also been shown to help create lasting health improvements for patients who suffer from TMJ disorder and chronic migraines!
Juvederm is a type of dermal filler that is made from hyaluronic acid. While the name may sound scary, this substance is perfectly safe and exists naturally in all living organisms. 56% of the hyaluronic acid in your body is actually contained by your skin; however, over time, we can start to lose fullness in certain areas, especially the face. This often results in frown lines, thin lips, and “parentheses.” Thankfully, Juvederm can help by replenishing the volume of these areas.
Once Juvederm has been injected into the skin, it will smooth noticeable lines and wrinkles by plumping up the facial tissue. Patients should experience little to no post-operative effects, and the results should serve you well for six to nine months.
Both Botox and Juvederm are non-surgical, non-invasive procedures that can be recovered quickly from and result in little to no downtime. During an initial cosmetic consultation, Dr. Cheung can help you determine which option is right for your particular skin needs! Our goal is to leave you with both a smile and an overall facial appearance that exceeds your every expectation here in Plano.
