Botox® & Juvederm®
While plastic surgery is a well-known effective way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fight signs of aging, there are many patients who want the results without the surgery. Dr. Curington offers the cosmetic Botox® and Juvéderm® injections to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without surgery! These solutions can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and enhance volume and shape in the injection site.
Dentists provide patients with small injections on a daily basis, whether it be for a crown, root canal, or dental filler. Dr. Curington uses her skills and gentle hands to deliver little injections for a younger, youthful, rejuvenated look.
Botox® is a cosmetic injection system derived from botulinum toxin type A. Approved by the FDA, Botox® is completely safe, stopping muscle contractions and reducing the formation of wrinkles and lines in the injection area.
The full results of Botox® injections should be seen in about a week. At this point, the muscles in the injection area are relaxed, causing the wrinkles and lines to fade. Botox injections improve your appearance and self-confidence, with results lasting approximately four to six months. Botox® also has benefits beyond mere cosmetic treatment- it has been used in therapies to help treat excessive sweating, jaw pain/tension, and migraine headaches.

Juvéderm® is a cosmetic dermal filler derived from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. Juvéderm® presents an alternative to cosmetic surgery used to fill in deep lines and wrinkles on the face, as well as to perform lip augmentation.
The best candidates for Juvéderm® are patients in generally good health who are interested in reducing the prominence of facial wrinkles, or fuller lips. Common side effects include swelling, redness, soreness, bruising, or itching of the injection site. All of these side effects are temporary and will usually abate within a day or two following treatment. Juvéderm® will give you a youthful, fresh appearance by reducing lines and wrinkles on the face, with no recovery time required following treatment!
The results of Juvéderm® injections last between six months to a whole year. The treatment is safe, generally risk-free, and requires no downtime or major recovery.
