Cosmetic and Dermal Fillers
in North Scottsdale, AZ
If you suffer from chronic jaw pain, are bothered by wrinkles, or have lost volume in your face, you may want to consider cosmetic and dermal fillers in North Scottsdale, AZ. These are just some of the conditions that Dr. Rick treats at his dental clinic. According to the American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE), dentists are increasingly offering Botox and dermal fillers to their patients. It just makes sense to have a dentist you already know and trust perform these services rather than a large and possibly impersonal medical spa.
What are Botox and dermal fillers?
Botox is a purified protein that Dr. Rick injects into your facial muscles to resolve pain and lessen the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet, and other common cosmetic issues. Dermal fillers restore facial volume that you lose due to the aging process. As you get older, the collagen and fat pads in your face diminish and leave wrinkles and deep folds in their place. Typically, he uses Botox for areas you would like to improve on the top of your face. Dermal fillers improve issues such as deep-set lines around your nose and mouth as well as other problem areas on the bottom of your face.
Getting cosmetic and dermal fillers from your dentist is an excellent choice
Some people may find it unusual to have these services performed by a dentist. As the AAFE reports, patients who choose a dentist for Botox or dermal fillers enjoy several advantages over those who go to a med spa. Besides a closer relationship between dentist and patient, two other important benefits include:
- Dentists have an intimate understanding of oral and facial anatomy
- They can deliver dental anesthesia when the procedure requires it, saving patients from the discomfort when other providers only use topical anesthetic cream
