You may be thinking, "Wait, what?! Wrinkle treatment in a dentist’s office?"
That’s right! It is a new concept for many patients to understand, however dentists can be certified for treatments above the neck if they complete the proper training and continuing education.
When Dr. Holloway started Floss, she wanted it to be a place where she could care not just for her patient’s smile, but their whole face. And she knows that her patients are busy! Why not offer them wrinkle treatment in the same visit as their teeth cleaning or restorative appointment?
The same meticulous hands that care for your teeth can also prevent the signs of aging with fillers and BOTOX. Dr. Holloway is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry as well as the American Academy of Facial Esthetics where she received her certifications to administer injectables like Juvederm that help give the complexion a more supple and youthful look.
The products that are most often used in facial fillers are collagen, hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyl apatite. These give facial skin that rejuvenated look by reducing or eliminating wrinkles, raising scar depressions, enhancing lips, and replacing soft-tissue volume loss. As our skin ages, wrinkles become more frequent and pronounced. This is often exasperated by exposure to sun and years of everyday muscle movement such as smiling, squinting, and chewing.
Depending on your choice of facial filler and your treatment plan, facial fillers can be temporary to long-lasting solutions. They are administered through a few tiny facial injections on specific areas of the face. Various types of facial fillers are available, and each is designed with one or several purposes, such as wrinkle reduction and lip augmentation. Dr. Holloway-Kleidosty will help you determine which facial injections and what injectable fillers treatments are right for you.
Facial fillers will volumize creases and folds in areas that have lost fat and collagen as we age. Hyaluronic acid is the natural filler substance in your body, this is why at Floss we use Juvederm, which is a hyaluronic acid filler. It is injected right underneath the folds that need the volume replaced, leaving you with a more youthful and rested appearance.
Facial fillers can be used for high lip line cases, asymmetrical lips around the mouth, lip augmentation, and completing cosmetic dentistry cases by creating a beautiful, young-looking frame around the teeth.
