Facial Aesthetics in Wesley Chapel
If you’re looking for a provider of facial aesthetics in Wesley Chapel, it might not occur to you to visit a dentist, but there’s perhaps no one more qualified when it comes to BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers!
With the use of Botox and Dermal Fillers Dr. Luz Hernandez provides non-surgical facial aesthetic procedures which will dramatically improve your appearance. Dr. Luz Hernandez’ in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy and extensive experience on treating the muscles of mastication and facial expressions puts her in an ideal position to help you achieve ideal and natural looking results while still allowing for freedom of expression.
Many people believe that they need to see a dermatologist or plastic surgeon for facial aesthetic treatments, but dentists receive advanced training in the function, anatomy, and musculature of the jaw and face as part of their dental school training. Deciding where to inject Botox® and facial fillers isn’t simply a matter of looking at the surface level of the skin - it’s about understanding the muscles underneath and how they interact with each other.
The two main functions of the muscles in the face are: mastication and communication. We have the muscles of mastication and muscles of facial expression to help us with these two survival functions. With a detailed evaluation and listening to your concerns Dr. Luz will focus on how the aging process is distorting the message you are trying to communicate. Frown lines, pursed lips, down turn lines on the corner of the mouth are all expressions associated with anger, sadness, grumpiness or depression. Treating them is not a sign of vanity! It is a personal desire to make sure that your expressions are aligned with how you feel and the message you want to transmit.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers are a natural complement to any of our cosmetic dentistry treatments, providing you with a complete smile makeover. Or, you might just want to schedule a Botox® treatment after your next dental cleaning!
BOTOX® Cosmetic & XEOMIN®
BOTOX® uses botulinum toxins to relax the muscles, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Botulinum toxin, a protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, binds to the point where a neuron joins the muscle fiber and prevents the release of a chemical, blocking muscle contraction. BOTOX® was approved for use over 20 years ago by the FDA for the temporary treatment of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. In addition to cosmetic use, BOTOX® and XEOMIN® can be used to treat TMJ disorder.Learn more about BOTOX® Cosmetic
Dermal Fillers (JUVÉDERM® & Restylane®)
In addition to BOTOX®, Dr. Luz also provides injectable fillers, specifically in the areas of the lips, peri-oral area (around the lips), and cheeks. Injectable fillers reverse the effects of facial volume loss, add volume to lips and lift the cheeks, and fill wrinkles and folds.Learn more about Dermal Fillers
