Botox and dermal fillers are non-surgical cosmetic treatments that enhance one's appearance. Botox, derived from botulinum toxin, is primarily employed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by temporarily relaxing specific facial muscles. In contrast, dermal fillers, typically composed of hyaluronic acid or other safe substances, restore volume, smooth out wrinkles, and enhance facial contours by adding hydration and volume beneath the skin's surface.
At Silver Smiles Orthodontics, we offer Botox and fillers as versatile tools in non-invasive rejuvenation, offering solutions for different aesthetic concerns, from wrinkle reduction to facial volume restoration. These treatments are often used individually or in combination to help individuals achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance without surgery.
Botox is an injectable drug that temporarily relaxes facial muscles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It is made from botulinum toxin type A, produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This neurotoxin blocks nerve signals to muscles, causing them to relax. When injected into facial muscles, it smooths the skin and reduces wrinkles caused by facial expressions such as frowning or squinting.
Botox is most commonly used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead creases, crow’s feet around the eyes, and lines around the mouth. It can also be used to reduce excessive sweating in the armpits. Aside from those, Botox injections in Atlanta, GA treat various other medical conditions, including migraines, excessive sweating, overactive bladders, and muscle spasms. It is also an effective treatment for TMJ disorders.

Dermal fillers in Atlanta, GA, are injectable treatments that restore volume to your face, filling in wrinkles and folds to give you a more youthful appearance. These injections contain hyaluronic acid (HA), which occurs naturally in the body. HA helps your skin retain moisture, which improves elasticity and tone. Your body produces less of this substance as you age, causing the skin to lose its plumpness and firmness. Dermal fillers help reverse this process by restoring lost volume and smoothing lines and creases.
