Facial Rejuvenation by Hunt Valley, MD Dentist Dr. Joel Nathanson.
The best benefit of facial rejuvenation is that you get to look younger. As we age, we get these little crow’s feet around our eyes and little lines around our mouths. It’s called marionette lines and such. Facial rejuvenation with Botox and fillers can actually help make a lot of those go away, and it makes people look younger.
I’ve had patients where we’ve done this, they look in the mirror. It usually takes a week or two for them to see the full effects, particularly of the Botox. The fillers, you do see the effect right away, but with Botox, after they see the effects, they look in the mirror and they say, wow, I look a lot younger.
We have also used Botox to help treat some patients who have pain in their facial muscles– either the jaw joint, what’s known as the temporomandibular joint, or just some of the cheek muscles. Even muscles in the side of the head or in the back of the neck– those can be effectively treated with the Botox material, and at least give temporary relief to the pain that they experience in those muscles.
