What is Botox® (generic name Onabotulinomtoxin)?
Botox is an FDA approved, cosmetic medical treatment, which is aimed at removing facial cosmetic defects such as wrinkles and facial lines. Botox® is the commercial name for the botulinum toxin, which is injected into the skin. Botox® contains a special protein which restricts the contractions of facial muscles. Once it is injected, the nerve impulses to the facial muscles are blocked, and the muscles are unable to contract. As a result, the creases and wrinkles on the face are smoothed out, and you can enjoy a more youthful and lively appearance.

The Botox® Treatment Procedure
Getting a beautiful and younger smile with Botox® is a simple and painless procedure which can be completed in under an hour. First, we will clean the skin of your face where the Botox® has to be administered. Next, our dentist will inject Botox® at different sites of your face, so that the muscles get relaxed and the creases and wrinkles are removed. Don’t worry, the procedure is completely safe and painless. You can sit back, relax, and let our cosmetic dentists do their magic!
Enjoying the Results of Botox® Treatment
It may take up to 14 days for the result of Botox® treatment to appear completely. If you need quick results, a quick-acting version of Botox® is also available which can yield cosmetic results within 3-5 days. However, the results of Botox® treatment are not permanent. Depending on individual cases, the effects of Botox® treatment can for 3-6 months. Our dentists recommend that you undergo Botox® treatment after every six months so that you can continue to enjoy a healthy, young and attractive smile.
The Dermal Fillers
As we age, our skin starts to lose constituents which are responsible for ensuring its firmness, elasticity and volume; collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. As a result, the skin starts to appear shrunken and sagged. This is where the dermal fillers become useful.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are substances which act as “fillers” for the skin. Its a very convenient and fast procedure and usually quite painless.
At Regent Dental Practice, we inject the dermal fillers just below the surface of the skin to increase the skin volume, and to stretch the sagging skin so that the wrinkles and creases are removed. In addition to the facial skin, we also use dermal fillers are also used to increase the fullness of the lips, and to remove dark circles around the eyes. They are also used for removing creases around the corner of the mouth as well as the frown lines between the eyes.
Are Dermal Fillers Safe?
Dermal fillers are safe for cosmetic use, as long as the treatment is performed by a qualified and experienced dentist. Just like Botox®, dermal fillers have also been approved by the FDA. This means that they are completely safe and effective for improving facial cosmetics, and to reverse signs of aging.
How Long Does the Effect of Dermal Fillers Last?
The cosmetic effect of dermal fillers tends to decline gradually and may last anywhere between six to twelve months. After this duration, you will have to repeat the procedure to continue enjoying your youthful looks.
Combining Botox® and Dermal Fillers?
You can for sure combine both Botox® dermal fillers and acquire great results, our dentists at recommend the combined use of Botox® and dermal fillers. In this way, the Botox® injection removes creases and wrinkles by blocking muscular contractions, while the dermal fillers increase skin volume by restoring the proteins which have been lost as a result of aging.
Combining Botox® and dermal fillers addresses multiple areas of the face simultaneously. Botox® is typically used around the eyes and forehead, whereas dermal fillers are generally used on the middle and lower areas of the face.
