Botox and Juverderm: More Than Just Cosmetic

Many people are aware that their dentist can make them look younger by turning back the clock on their smile. However, did you also know they can help eliminate wrinkles on your face? Your dentist in New Orleans, Dr. Rachel Neumeyer can now offer you Botox and Juvederm treatments to help restore your youthful glow, and give your confidence a boost. Also, for people suffering from chronic jaw pain (known as a “TMJ disorder”) Botox can be used to treat the symptoms and quickly relieve pain.

Wait, Botox From A Dentist?

This is a question many people have, as they suspect a dentist doesn’t have the training to administer a cosmetic treatment beyond the teeth. Actually, dentists like Dr. Neumeyer are educated about the entire muscular structure of the mouth, head, and neck. She is familiar with all the specific muscle groups in the face, which enables her to apply Botox and Juvederm safely and effectively. She isn’t simply dabbling with these treatments: she is fully trained and educated on how to use them.

Botox in New Orleans: Turn Back The Clock

If you have wrinkles on your forehead or around your eyes, they can have a dramatic effect on your appearance. They can make you look much older and more tired than you really are, and zap your confidence whenever you look in the mirror. One of the easiest ways to address this problem is with Botox.

Botox is made of a refined protein that is taken from a naturally occurring bacteria. It can eliminate slight wrinkles by preventing the muscles in the face from making the movements that cause the skin to fold and crease. A Botox treatment is extremely quick, only taking about 10 minutes. Dr. Neumeyer will simply ask you where you would like to reduce your wrinkles, and then use a few painless injections to apply the actual Botox. The session will be over before you know it, and the results are almost instant. Your face will appear smoother, more youthful, and you’ll be amazed at how much it can change your overall appearance.

Even though some of your muscles won’t be able to move, you will still have a full range of motion and be able to talk, laugh, and eat normally. Results usually last for a few months, at which time you will need to return to Canatella Dental to have a fresh treatment.

Botox for TMJ Disorders

If you are suffering from chronic jaw pain, or a TMJ disorder, Botox has been shown to be an effective treatment. It is able to paralyze the muscles that cause the unconscious clenching and teeth-grinding that leads to jaw and neck pain, as well as headaches. Much like the cosmetic treatment, it only takes a few minutes and painless injections, and you’ll feel results very quickly. Many patients describe an almost immediate pain relief that lasts for months on end. If you have tried other methods to treat your TMJ disorder and have had no luck, be sure to ask Dr. Neumeyer about Botox.

Juvederm: Restore Your Youthful Glow

As people age, their face naturally starts to look less full because the fat around the cheeks and lips begin to disappear. This can cause the skin to sag and create wrinkles which can easily make a person look much older. The only way to restore this fullness is to replenish the volume in these particular areas of the face, and that is exactly what Juvederm does. It is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found in the skin, muscles, and tendons of many mammals. It is able to increase the volume of your face and lessen the appearance of wrinkles around your cheeks and lips, taking many years off of your appearance.

Just like with Botox, the procedure requires only a few minutes and a few strategically placed painless injections. It is a treatment many people can fit into their lunch break, and results can last for months.
