Botox & Dermal Fillers

Botox® & Dermal FillersAn Overview

botox dentist in sudbury maDr. Bourgeois is an active member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE) and has advanced training in the use of Botox® Cosmetic and dermal fillers to complement your overall appearance. As part of a smile makeover or routine anti-aging, Botox and dermal fillers can be effectively used to minimize or erase those common signs of aging, including deep lines between the brows, around the eyes, nose and fine lines and wrinkles on the face.

Botox at the Dentist

Although you may not immediately think of your dentist when considering the use of Botox or a dermal filler to address your cosmetic concerns, a dentist is highly trained in the anatomy of the face and neck. Dr. Bourgeois has extensive knowledge of the musculoskeletal structure of this area and can skilfully place injections where they can be most effective.

Many patients appreciate the convenience of completing their smile with facial rejuvenation treatments that can be performed during routine dental visits every 6 months, or as needed.

Botox® & Dermal Fillers What to Expect

Dr. Bourgeois takes time with patients who would like to have Botox or a dermal filler as part of their treatment or smile makeover. She will discuss your medical history, personal cosmetic concerns, and expected outcome. The number of injections needed to achieve your goals will be recommended, with the benefit of having “touch up” treatments during your bi-annual dental care visits.

Most patients are made comfortable prior to their injection with a topical anesthetic. Dr. Bourgeois will carefully slide a very thin needle beneath the surface of the skin in the area(s) to be treated. Once complete, you may experience minor swelling, tenderness or redness at the site which will dissipate in the next couple of days.

Results from your treatment will slowly appear over the next week or two, generally lasting about 6 months.
