Did You Know?
Dentists are actually the ideal medical professional for injecting Botox or Fillers. Because they have an advanced knowledge of all the facial soft tissues, nerves, blood vessels, and muscles, they can pick the perfect spot to inject Botox or Fillers safely and effectively.
Am I candidate for botox or fillers?
You may be a candidate for Botox or Fillers if you wish to make your smile appear younger or brighter. Candidates for Botox are individuals who wish to eliminate facial wrinkles, correct a high lip line, or wish to relax their facial muscles for a younger look. Additionally, candidates for Botox must be between the ages of 18 and 65, and should be free from certain skin conditions around the proposed injection site.
Candidates for Juvederm are individuals who wish to remove wrinkles, soften folds in their face, and add volume to their lips or other facial soft tissues. Additionally, candidates must be at least 18 years of age and should have no known allergies to hyaluronic acid or lidocaine.

Botox not only smoothes out existing wrinkles, but consistent treatments can help prevent the formation of new lines and wrinkles. Botox blocks the movement of small facial muscles, and the less those muscles are used, the less likely you are to form deeper lines or wrinkles.
HOW LONG DOES BOTOX LAST?
Botox works by binding receptors that send nerve signals for muscles to contract, making it impossible to make the expression that leads to the lines on your forehead made by frowning. However, your body is continually creating new receptors, rendering Botox a temporary fix. How long it will last will vary from patient to patient.
It can last from two to six months, with the average being three to four months. It is important to remember that it does not just stop working one day. The effects wear off gradually, so you can determine when it is time to have it redone.
The skill and accuracy of the professional also play a significant role in the results and how long they last. The fresher and higher quality the Botox is, the longer the results will last. Targeting the specific muscles, with the right amount of Botox, will give you the best results that last as long as possible.
However, no matter the skill of the person doing the injections, your own body plays a role in how long the Botox will continue to do its job. Each person generates receptors at a different rate, so you may be the lucky person who only needs a new injection every six months or so, while the person beside you might need a new injection in just a couple of months. The frequency of treatments will depend on how quickly your body produces new receptors, and your personal decision about when it is time for further injections.
