Age, genetics, and lifestyle can affect the elasticity of your skin and overall appearance. Over time, fine lines and wrinkles may develop into deeper folds and creases in the skin. With Greenbelt Dental Associates’s specially trained Cosmetic team, we can help reduce signs of aging and restore your appearance for a reimagined and more youthful look.
Using a prescription injectable solution, we can temporarily reduce the appearance of lines that have formed between the eyebrows from frowning and crow’s feet lines. For frown lines, five injections are administered into specific muscles of your forehead. To treat crow’s feet, three injections are administered into muscles that are on the sides of each eye - totaling six injections. These injections will temporarily reduce your muscle activity in the treated areas.
How Do I Know if I am a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Injections?
Good Cosmetic injection candidates are healthy adults who do not have a history of neuromuscular disease or other issues near the targeted areas. Let your doctor know what allergies as you may have a negative reaction to some of the ingredients in the Cosmetic injection.
Since our Cosmetic injections use a fine needle and do not require incisions, there is very minimal recovery time. You may be able to return to your normal everyday activities right after the procedure. Your doctor may provide you with specific instruction for your recovery.
While reaction times do vary, typically you may notice results between 24 and 48 hours after the injections.
Depending on a variety of factors, your results may last up to four months. Your doctor may be able to provide more insight on the lasting effects of the application you receive.
