Bongaree Dental is able to provide treatments to relieve facial pain, as well as cosmetic procedures to help reduce the signs of aging. We use the very best quality products which have been rigorously tested. These treatments give predictable results with very few side effects and can last for several months. Treatments include the use of botullinum toxins and dermal fillers.
Botullinum toxin is a well-known treatment for reducing the effects of aging but it can also be very useful in treating chronic facial pain. It can provide a good level of relief for several months through enabling the facial muscles to relax. We may recommend this treatment for TMD and bruxism (tooth grinding and clenching). Dermal fillers help restore lost volume, creating a smoother and more youthful effect.
Fine lines and wrinkles are a natural side-effect of aging, but facial aesthetics provides the welcome opportunity to turn back the clock and to regain a more youthful appearance. Botullinum toxins help facial muscles to relax, smoothing out fine lines, particularly any crow’s feet around the eyes. We only administer minimal amounts of botullinum toxin to create subtle yet natural results so you will not appear ‘frozen’ or unable to animate emotions.
We administer tiny amounts of botullinum toxin into pre-identified sites, using very fine needles that create minimal discomfort. It can take up to a week for the full effects to become evident and the results will last from 3-6 months before gradually fading.
As we age, we naturally lose the layer of fat just below the surface of the skin. This accentuates any fine lines as the facial muscles are closer to the surface. At the same time the skin becomes less elastic, adding to the loss of facial volume. Dermal fillers can be used to:
- Restore volume to thinning lips
- Soften facial lines and wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of facial scars
- Smooth out facial contours
After a consultation with Dr Keren, we can decide on the best locations for these fillers. Treatment is very safe and while the effects are temporary, they can last between 6-12 months. Sometimes it can be nice to use this treatment in conjunction with botullinum toxin to provide the best and most natural results.
