Dr. V. Lynn Morgan and Dr. Lindsay Wessner are pleased to announce the addition of Botox and Juvederm dermal fillers as services available in their Severna Park dental practice.
While most dental patients don’t think of dermal fillers as a “dental” treatment, dentists are uniquely qualified to preform these types of cosmetic procedures because of their specialized training and intimate knowledge of the facial anatomy. Dentists who offer these services in their dental practice must be in good standing with their state Board of Dentistry and complete a board certified post doctoral course in the administration of dermal fillers.
Botox, approved by the FDA and used successfully in treating fine lines and wrinkles for over 20 years, can provide immediate results that will continue to improve for up to 2 weeks. Botox treatments generally last about four months, depending on the health condition of the patient. Botox is very successful in treating fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and between the eyebrows. It works by relaxing the muscles in these areas to effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Juvederm, a product from the makers of Botox, is most successful treating the expression lines around the mouth. It is also commonly used to add fullness to the lips or correct an imbalance in their appearance.
With over 25 years of experience in the field of general and cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Morgan can now offer her dental patients an additional cosmetic treatment that can complement a smile makeover and take years off of their appearance! Dr. Morgan has the experience and knowledge to provide natural looking results from a dermal filler treatment.
If you have been considering a Botox treatment or want to discuss the benefits of either Botox or Juvederm, schedule a consultation with Dr. Morgan.
