Why Should a Dentist Perform Treatment With Facial Injectables?
Since the popularity of BOTOX® Cosmetic and other anti-aging injectables have risen dramatically among both men and women, medical professionals that range from registered nurses to podiatrists have begun administering the injectable. However, we believe our Fair Lawn cosmetic dentist is uniquely qualified to perform this effective wrinkle treatment. The dental education process focuses primarily on the oral and maxillofacial areas, giving dentists a nuanced understanding of the mechanics and aesthetics of the space between the chin and forehead. Dr. Jody Bardash has also completed further education in dento-facial aesthetics and is currently the only dentist in the entire nation certified as an instructor for Allergan®, the manufacturer of BOTOX® Cosmetic and an array of other medical-grade beauty products. When deciding who to trust for your cosmetic needs, consider the fact that dentists have spent their entire careers helping patients put their best face forward.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Information Video
With BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport®, a similar neuromodulator, patients can enhance their beautiful smiles with smooth, youthful facial skin. These products are designed to prevent overuse of facial muscles that commonly lead to expression lines. After treatment, you should begin to notice frown lines, crow’s feet, and other expression-related wrinkles soften as the muscles of the face relax. There should be zero downtime after treatment and injections usually take as little as 15 minutes. You can return to your daily activities immediately and anticipate a fresher, more youthful look that often lasts as long as three months. Results are not usually noticeable right after treatment, but they should be visible within two weeks.

KYBELLA® Double Chin Reduction
KYBELLA® is currently the first and only injectable that is FDA-approved to reduce excess fat under the chin and around the neck, resulting in a slimmer and more defined facial appearance. If you are struggling to minimize fullness in this area, KYBELLA® can be a highly effective treatment to reduce a “double chin” and contour the jawline. This works through its active ingredient of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down and metabolize fat. When injected in the submental region, KYBELLA® can permanently destroy the targeted fat cells and produce a visibly sleeker facial profile.
RADIESSE® is a calcium-based dermal filler used to minimize nasolabial folds (parentheses wrinkles) and other facial creases, as well as to enhance volume in the backs of the hands. RADIESSE® is made of calcium microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel, allowing immediate volume correction in the area of injection. As the RADIESSE® gel is absorbed, it also promotes collagen production and allows the skin to look firmer and fuller. Due to the injectable’s role as a collagen stimulator, results from RADIESSE® can be very long-lasting. RADIESSE® is commonly utilized to replicate the effects of a “liquid facelift” or an instant cheek lift with zero downtime.

JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC
JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC can be a highly effective dermal filler to correct volume loss around the cheeks and mid-face. As individuals age, facial sagging may cause the appearance of sunken cheeks, nasolabial folds, and other signs of aging. JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC is specifically designed to combat this age-related volume deficit by lifting the skin, adding definition around the cheeks, and restoring the youthful contours of the face. The results are among the longest-lasting when compared to other injectables, with many patients seeing improvement for up to two years.
JUVÉDERM® Vollure XC
As another variation in the JUVÉDERM® product line, Vollure® XC is designed to target lines surrounding the nose and mouth, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. JUVÉDERM® Vollure XC is composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps the skin retain fullness and moisture. While all JUVÉDERM® fillers are hyaluronic acid-based, the Vollure® XC solution has the benefit of including a topical anesthetic to improve patient comfort upon injection. JUVÉDERM® Vollure XC can smooth mid-facial creases for as long as 18 months.
JUVÉDERM® Volbella XC
For patients looking for subtle lip augmentation, JUVÉDERM® Volbella XC can be an excellent treatment to produce a natural-looking enhancement in the shape and size of the lips. Along with achieving a plumper and more noticeable pout, Volbella® XC can also smooth vertical wrinkles on the lips known as “lipstick lines” or “smoker’s lines.” The hyaluronic acid formulation also includes lidocaine, a topical numbing agent, to increase comfort during injections. Results can last for several months and many patients even notice improvement for as long as one year.
Depending on your needs, JUVÉDERM® Ultra offers dual volume enhancement in the lips as well as mild to moderate nasolabial folds. This application of JUVÉDERM® is designed to add fullness to thin lips and/or smooth the lines that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth, often resulting in a more rejuvenated look in the entire lower face. With optimal treatment, JUVÉDERM® Ultra can provide results for up to one year.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC
Like most dermal fillers, JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC can add volume to depressed areas of the face for a smoother, fuller look. However, the JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus formulation stands out from other injectables for its thicker gel consistency, allowing it to treat deeper nasolabial folds and marionette lines when compared to the regular JUVÉDERM® Ultra solution. Due to the viscous nature of the filler, JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC can also help reshape facial contours around the cheeks and jawline. The outcome typically lasts for 6 to 12 months depending on the area of injection.
Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft
Restylane® is another collection of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that can enhance facial volume. The original Restylane® injectable is utilized to smooth lines and facial creases, including parentheses wrinkles and marionette lines, while Restylane® Lyft is designed to augment the cheeks and the backs of the hands. Restylane® is also FDA-approved to add volume and definition to the lips. These products can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months, providing you with long-lasting facial rejuvenation to frame your smile.
While similarly composed of hyaluronic acid, BELOTERO® BALANCE is a dermal filler that is uniquely designed to integrate into your facial tissue for almost immediate restoration of volume. Since BELOTERO® BALANCE is composed of a soft, cohesive gel, it has the versatility to treat deep nasolabial folds and marionette lines as well as more delicate wrinkles above the lip. You should be able to see an improvement immediately after treatment and results can last approximately six months, depending on whether your injections were in highly active areas of the face.
How is Treatment with Injectables Performed?
Facial rejuvenation with BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers is non-surgical and completed relatively quickly. Patients usually feel no pain during treatment, but some products also include a local anesthetic in the formula to allow more comfortable injections. Using an ultra-fine needle, your injector will deliver meticulous amounts of the product into targeted regions of the face. Some swelling or bruising may arise after treatment, but these reactions should subside naturally. Most of the time, injections take no longer than 15 to 20 minutes and can be completed during your lunch hour.
