At Northern Westchester Oral Surgery, we understand that age and the elements can cause your skin to lose its youthful firmness and vitality. That’s why our practice offers a variety of facial cosmetic treatments which decrease the signs of wrinkles and restores the natural radiance of your appearance. Zachary C. Weber, DMD, MD is a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and is trained in the art and science of facial rejuvenation procedures such as BOTOX® and Juvéderm™ dermal filler injections.
BOTOX® (Botulinum toxin) is one of the most widely known and used treatments to reduce the signs of wrinkles or aging. BOTOX® is a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium A. BOTOX® can relax the muscles on areas of the face and neck which cause wrinkles associated with facial expressions or facial pain. Treatment with BOTOX® can cause your facial expression lines or wrinkles to be less noticeable or essentially disappear. Areas most frequently treated include the frown lines located between the eyes, crow’s feet around the corners of the eyes, forehead wrinkles, radial lip lines (smoker’s lines), and head and neck muscles.
BOTOX® is diluted to a very controlled solution and when injected into the muscles with a very thin needle, it is almost painless. Patients may feel a slight burning sensation while the solution is being injected but don’t feel the needle. The procedure takes about 15-20 minutes and the results can last up to 3 months. With repeated treatments, the results may tend to last longer.
Treatment with dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm™, can smooth out facial folds and wrinkles, add volume to the lips, and contour facial features that have lost their volume and fullness due to aging, sun exposure, illness, etc. Facial rejuvenation can be carried out with minimal complications. These dermal fillers are injected under the skin with a very fine needle. This produces natural-appearing volume under wrinkles and folds which are lifted up and smoothed out. The results can often be seen immediately.
If you are interested in receiving BOTOX® or Juvéderm™, Dr. Weber would like to meet with you for an initial consultation. Please call Northern Westchester Oral Surgery, and the friendly staff will schedule you an appointment at your earliest convenience.
